Are you daydreaming about taking a sledgehammer to your kitchen walls? Your daydream can become a reality with the proper floor plan. Consider opening up your kitchen with a single line kitchen layout.
This layout opens up all of the areas around the space making the design one great room that happens to include the kitchen. All of the appliances, cabinets, countertops, and sink are located along one wall. In the past, this plan was popular to maximize space in smaller homes, but designers are adding this plan back into their blueprints with an extra touch. Newer designs incorporate an island with a sink and dishwasher. This addition provides more counter space, storage, and, seating among other benefits.
Space Saver:This design creates extra space due to the kitchen being on one wall. Place a table and chairs in this space, and it can be used as a dining area. Another option is adding a workstation for a laptop, after-school command center, or a hobby area.
Budget-Friendly- Not needing to build unnecessary accent walls will reduce your labor and costs on materials.
Versatile Design: This style fits into anyone's aesthetic, from farmhouse chic, Pinterest DIY, to ultra modern.
Low-Maintenance: Let's be honest, this is not the Brady Bunch era with Alice in the kitchen all day. Now we are slaves to our schedules including extracurricular activities and late night dinners. This design requires less cleaning due to the reduction in surface area.
Inspiring Your Inner Chef: Get back to what you love, cooking! The layout allows the prep work to run smoothly and quickly with everything at an arm's distance.
Face Time: You will no longer have to yell, “What did you say?” “Can you repeat that?” “Huh?” Your family is in the other room laughing and enjoying their time together, while you are alone cooking dinner. The openness of this plan allows your family to still hang out in the living area or sit around the island while you finish up the dinner preparations.
