Stash and Hide

Because you can never have too much storage, stash bulky appliances, like stand mixers behind a sliding cabinet door. Or for a faster solution, turn to good ol’ baskets to hold and conceal seasonal goods like holiday cookie cutters or sprinkles.

In this gallery you’ll find beautiful open kitchen designs with living room including ideas for paint, finishes and decor.Contemporary kitchen with open concept to living room and waterfall travertine counter island

Homes & apartments with open plan design continues to be popular, especially among new developments. Such layout is favored because it helps save space and gives a lighter feel to the space. Open plan layouts are often applied on common areas, such as the living room, dining room & kitchen for residential properties.

People usually have different reasons for favoring open layouts. The living room & the kitchen are not often placed adjacent to each other, as the dining area is usually the one placed adjacent to the kitchen. Placing it right by the living area does have it’s advantages though, most especially if you love multitasking & entertaining your guests.

An open plan living room allows you to see what is happening in the living area while preparing food (or

Tear down the wall.  Many contractors these days have been told that by homeowners as the first order of renovation business.  Many homeowners want to turn older homes into contemporary open concept kitchen, living room, and dining area floor plans.

 Grow an educational veg garden

My children are nurturing various plants at the moment; potatoes in black plastic grow bags; sunflower seeds sent to them by their grandparents’ neighbour, and a stone planter filled with thyme and rosemary.

For inspiration, mother-of-two Anna Burles, founder of design house Run For The Hills, suggested logging on to Studio Cultivate, which is running virtual kids’ gardening lessons during lockdown. “We’re cultivating tomato seeds in the airing cupboard which we’ll plant in the garden,” she says.

Adults can create a more sophisticated cutting garden or veg patch in large pots on a balcony, windowsill or terrace, says Wakefield. She grows herbs, lettuce, tulips, cosmos and zinnias in terracotta pots from Pots and Pithoi (potsandpithoi.com), along with chrysanthemums, which are having a moment this year.

Don’t forget to add some scented shrubs to your cutting garden, she says; the pink flowered Syringa ‘Red Pixie’ or

Are They Family Kitchens or Family Room Kitchen Combos

Do you have a small, cramped kitchen that’s in need of some extra counter or cabinet space?

Or perhaps your kitchen is big enough for the entire family to gather in, and your living room goes unused as a result. A remodeling trend that’s been popular since the early ’90s is to combine the living room and kitchen into one central room called a “great” room. You can actually create a lot of extra space in your home without doing an addition, simply by using existing under-used space.

Most families spend more time in the kitchen than any other room. Over the past few decades, main floor plans have seen a trend toward a great room that functions as the main living area, and a trend away from distinct kitchens, living rooms, and dining rooms. By putting these main rooms in a shared, open space, contemporary design has put the

    10 Top Kitchen Diner Design Tips

    1. Give Thought to Size and Layout

    One of the benefits of building a new house, or extending and/or remodelling an existing home, is that you have more flexibility to decide on the size and shape of your kitchen diner. Ideas include:

    • Large square or rectangular rooms work best when carefully zoned.
    • An L-shape arrangement is another option (and may be readily achieved by extending to the rear and knocking through to an existing reception room). This layout allows a degree of separation between the kitchen and dining space, and often means you’re not in sight of kitchen mess when sitting at the table.

    2. Your Lighting Scheme Plays an Important Role

    As multi-functional rooms, kitchen diners are arguably one of the most complex spaces to light in the house. A well-designed lighting scheme features layers of light:

    • ambient (general) lighting
    • task lighting (i.e. under-cabinet lighting, introduced to facilitate activities

    Before and After: An Interior Design Student Upgraded Her Family’s Kitchen from Builder Grade to Beautiful

    Suchada Eickemeyer and her husband bought their California home for their family of five in 2016, just as she was beginning interior design school. Suchada knew from the start that she would be able to put her newly acquired skills to good use in the house’s kitchen, which she says initially came across as ’90s builder grade.

    The orange oak cabinets and drawers felt like they were a few more opens and closes away from completely falling apart, she writes: “The bottoms of drawers would literally fall out when we pulled them out, or the entire drawer would fall off its glides. The chipped tile countertops never felt clean, and we had to keep moving things around to avoid breaking shelves [to the point] that it was a nightmare to find any tools we needed to cook.”

    It took a couple of years to save up for the renovation Suchada
