Visible kitchen (and what a view)
Visible kitchen: our tips for choosing and furnishing it
A visible kitchen is a contemporary and trendy solution, which is also very popular with those who need to optimise their available space. As well as being beautiful and modern, a kitchen facing onto the living room is extremely functional in homes with limited space, as it provides a welcoming and well-organised open space. Let’s have a closer look at how to make a visible kitchen as stylish and practical as possible!
Designing a space where the kitchen and living room coexist means having to study two rooms in one, finding the right style to create a harmonious setting: have you already chosen the colours, finishes and materials?
The Diesel Open Workshop visible kitchen features an Anthracite Fabric and Textile Sand structure, Earth Grey and Concrete Jersey decorative melamine doors, like the shelves, Soft Steel frame doors with Smoky Glass and a worktop that matches the dining table perfectly.
Another example? We are talking about the super-equipped Motus, which features the main theme running between the kitchen and living room in matt shades and wood, creating a modern and luminous set, embellished by sophisticated glass inserts that enhance the shapes and volumes.
Keep in mind that all you need to do is combine the colours correctly and choose the right accessories to transform your visible kitchen into a unique, customised corner, a special setting for your shared moments.
As this is a single room, we have seen how important it is to encourage interaction between the kitchen and living room. The real challenge, however, is to divide the areas, at least symbolically, without overlapping the cooking and/or the washing area, dining area and relaxation area: how? By arranging the modules to provide different worktops for food preparation, eating and leisure.
Opting for a model with an island or peninsula allows you to maximise the area: the versatile and dynamic workstation marks the kitchen area, offers an extra worktop and, if need be, can be transformed into a comfortable counter, eliminating the table and the risk of eating too close to the sofa if there isn’t enough space.
