The union of the kitchen and the living room in the same environment, also commonly known as a “great room “can be a comfortable space in which to organize meetings relatives. Combining the kitchen, living room and dining room creates an open and flexible space, but also presents special design challenges. It is possible to successfully remodel room containing the kitchen and the living room without feeling that it is a cavernous and impersonal.
Paint the room a neutral color and continued to give unity to the environment, but choose a wall stand, to call attention to the focal point of the room . The focal point can be a fireplace, any other architectural detail of importance or a decorative object as a dramatic picture. Paint the wall behind this picture of a bold color.
Replaces the current floor of a material that is consistent throughout the space. Choose a system that works well for the kitchen, considering the possibilities of getting wet, and give a comfortable and warm appearance to the living material. Wood planks are a popular choice, so are the tiles. Both materials are durable and easy to clean, plus attractive. Put rugs in certain areas to define smaller spaces beneath the table as the dining room and under the sofa and chairs in the living room.
Use lighting to subdivide the large space and define their independent functions. Put hanging lamps over the kitchen island, a candlestick on the table of the dining room and install recessed lights or an independent panel of lights to evenly illuminate the living room.
Install a range hood over the oven to remove fumes generated by cooking. When your kitchen is in a shared environment, these odors tend to penetrate the space. However, an exhaust ventilation will help alleviate some of these problems.
