The modern kitchen can be defined
in one word – Open
Open spaces are in. High ceilings, center islands, and sprawling work tops are here to stay. There are many ways you can transform boxy, outdated space into unforgettable open space.
Remove all obstructions between your cooking area and eating area. This includes all cabinetry and jutting countertops. Many chefs opt for center islands to provide useful, yet unobtrusive cooking space.
Spend your decorating dollars on your informal eating area rather than a formal dining room. Invest in a social center that your family can enjoy every day of the year, not just on holidays.
