If you want to increase the size of your room and improve the flow of movement around it, then knocking down the dividing room between the kitchen and lounge can work well. The room becomes brighter and more sociable.
An American kitchen works well for all surface areas, small or large. But you do need to make sure there’s a certain amount of coherence across the whole living space.
Even if you love cooking, you still need to make sure the size of your fitted kitchen suits the surface area of the whole room. And the kitchen design should work with the interior décor as a whole.
However, there are some disadvantages to this type of kitchen. Sometimes, smells and noise from the kitchen can bother other members of the family relaxing in the lounge area. So, it’s worth carefully choosing kitchen appliances (small and large) so you can limit problems such as these.
Finally, it’s important to retain dedicated space for different activities. So, try to organise your kitchen-lounge in a smart way by clearly marking out each individual area (breakfast bar, dining area, lounge area, library).
This is something our designers at Mobalpa will take into account when drawing up your plans.
