Whenever we meet with a homeowner to discuss their kitchen redesign, one of the first things we talk about is the layout. While closed-off kitchens are more traditional, more and more people are opting for a more modern, open floor plan. While both types have their benefits, it’s important to know which one is right for you. The experienced team at Cornerstone Kitchens & Design is here to help you decide.

Open Concept

One of the major advantages to having an open floor plan is space. Without walls restricting your creativity, you are free to increase your counter space and turn your kitchen into a comfortable social area. This way you can entertain friends and family without continually darting back and forth between the living room and the kitchen.

Closed Off

While open concept kitchens are a popular trend amongst homeowners in Vancouver, they aren’t without their drawbacks. Without the walls enclosing your kitchen, there will be less space for cabinets to store your food and appliances. Just as an open kitchen is more social, a closed one is more private. Food preparation areas are naturally messy. If you aren’t planning to do the dishes right away, then you may prefer a kitchen with walls to hide the mess.
