Kitchen Layout Ideas To Simplify This Space for Socializing

Your kitchen is the central space in your home where words become conversations, morning smiles are met with freshly brewed coffee, meals are shared and memories are made. This essential space in your home deserves the best mix of class and comfort available. Regardless of the kitchen layout ideas you are choosing from, your kitchen will be one you’ll love. Zillow contributor and interior designer Kerrie Kelly gives some creative ways you can work with seating to give your layout a different and spacious feeling.

Best View in The House

Window seats give you the ability to add additional seating to your kitchen without taking up a lot of space. If you prefer an open floor plan, this eat-in style can add an airy feeling to the area and give your family and guests an excellent view of Texas Hill Country as they eat. Flip open cabinets give you the option for more storage when designing this space and as Kelly points out, a fabric covering and decorative pillows on the bench can add color and texture to your kitchen design.
