The living room is often considered the hub for family activity. The kitchen, however, can also have a similar function where your family spends the bulk of their day while handling daily affairs. More homes, in fact, are blurring the lines between the kitchen and living room, so much so that many homeowners are opting for a kitchen living room combo.
An open concept hybrid room can be achieved through kitchen remodeling work and some simple DIY adjustments. This makes the kitchen more accommodating as a room not unlike that of a living room.
DIY Kitchen Renovations
Make use of the kitchen island – Treat the kitchen island as a living room table. This is the spot where your children can do their homework, eat a midday snack, or browse social media. To really bring elements of the living room into the kitchen, you can even add a television set on the island or place it in an alcove on the counter. The same can also be done for kitchens with a bar section.
Add a sofa or couch – These are considered living room essentials, which is all the more reason for incorporating them if space allows. Add some fluffy pillows for added comfort and aesthetics.
Include a makeshift office – You may set up a permanent workstation for your laptop, printer, fax machine, etc. If you have space, add a small coffee table or half-moon table along with a comfy chair, and you’ll have your own kitchen/office combo.
