OPEN PLAN DESIGN Open plan layouts are increasingly popular as they make the kitchen a more sociable space; gone are the days of an enclosed kitchen purposefully segregated from the rest of the home. A room with successfully zoned spaces retains a natural flow between different areas, giving the room an overall sense of purpose and continuity in design. Carefully planned and designed to function as much more than a room to cook in, a large kitchen can be a kitchen, dining room, living area and study all at once. Stood at the door leading in from the front porch there is a clear view all the way through the property, past the bespoke kitchen into the dining and living spaces beyond. 29
