How do you bring structure to an open-plan kitchen?
Structuring an open-plan kitchen helps you define each individual space while retaining a sense of coherence across the whole the living area. At Mobalpa, our experts will help you create a bespoke interior that is well planned out but personalised to reflect your taste and requirements.
Glass partitions create a light, warm and welcoming semi-open-plan kitchen
Glass partitions have been fashionable for several years now. They have a modern feel and help to structure the space and make it look bigger, while allowing lots of light to enter.
This glass partition is an excellent compromise between the open-plan kitchen and closed kitchen. You’re close to everyone, but you have a degree of privacy when cooking.
The kitchen and lounge spaces are separated but not completely divided. You retain the open, sociable element of an open-plan kitchen but reduce noise and the spread of odours.
Even if you’ve chosen ambient lighting in your kitchen, an industrial glass partition will bring a beautiful glow to the room by allowing natural light from the living room to circulate.
Installing a mid-height glass partition can help you optimise space. For instance, you could install a unit beneath the glass partition on the living room side, and a sink or bench on the kitchen side.
A semi-open-plan kitchen with glass partition will add depth to your kitchen and can work across both small and large surface areas. Mobalpa's designers will be able to offer you plenty of advice on how to lay out your kitchen.
Sliding doors bring structure to your room
Another way to separate the kitchen from the lounge in a discreet and attractive way is to install sliding doors. A Sliding partition moves back and forth so you can use a space in different ways, opening up or shutting off the kitchen, depending on the time of day.
When the doors are closed, each space is private.
Doors open, the room increases in size and it’s easy to move around.
Depending whether you choose surface mounted or pocket doors, they’ll either be visible when open or disappear into the wall.
You can choose a door frame and finish depending on the style you’re after and the ambience you wish to create. At Mobalpa, we design bespoke sliding partitions that will match your complete range of units.
Discreet, retractable sliding doors
Choose retractable sliding doors if you want a discreet kitchen space that can still open up onto the lounge.
This system means you can ingeniously hide away your domestic appliances such as the fridge and extractor fan, as well as concealing practical areas such as the cooker and sink.
Doors closed, the kitchen blends into its surroundings, so you can relax in the lounge without thinking about kitchen activities.
Doors open, the kitchen is functional and practical once again, so you can prepare your meals in the best conditions.
