One way of ensuring a smooth transition between functions on an open plan is to use the same color in the decor of adjacent spaces. It can be the primary color in one area and the accent color in the other.
If you want a social kitchen, one that allows smooth interaction between people and that feels more open, perhaps the most popular kitchen layout of all is for you. We’re talking about the L-shaped kitchen. Part of the reason why this is such a popular layout is the fact that it’s very versatile and adaptable. It works great with open plan living and dining areas and it can also serve as an eat-in kitchen if you add a table with chairs or an island with seating.
Stone is such a wonderful decorating medium. All the colors and textures that the variations provide make it easy to choose one for your space. Cover the boring bits of your existing kitchen island in your favorite shade for a really cabin like look.
In the case of an open floor plan where the kitchen and living or dining room are directly connected, there has to be a pleasant and seamless transition between them and that’s where the kitchen island comes into play. A green island which matches the kitchen cabinets can be paired with a green ceiling or accent wall in the kitchen or with other matching design elements such as the curtains or the area rug.
