I saw this article on Yahoo, and it sparked some thoughts that I have from time to time, especially when walking through new construction homes. It’s a fact that the trend towards opening all the walls and having a completely open space for living, dining and cooking is very popular. But this article raises some interesting questions that there may be a slight backlash against the open kitchen design. It also has links to other similar articles about the same topic.
I’ll admit that while walking through these foreclosed homes everyday, I find myself saying, “If we just knock out this wall here and that wall there, you could really open this up.” Open kitchens can instantly modernize and older home like those found in Shenandoah Estates. But the points the article raises come down to personal preference. Do you prefer the open kitchen concept or rather the separated floor plan?
