It is a choice that will impact the entire life of the house. So you have to think twice !!
Let's list the pros and cons of each:
The closed kitchen allow :
- to not let the smells diffuse from the kitchen to the living room
- prevent noise from spreading (oven, pressure cooker)
- avoid having to tidy up the kitchen systematically
The open kitchen allow :
- To create a friendly space where everyone will get together more easily (family and friends)
- To integrate the person who cooks in the family life and conversely to attract family life to the kitchen
If the choice between the two is difficult because you may want at certain times an open kitchen and at others a closed kitchen, there are "intermediaries". We can design a open kitchen most offset compared to the living room. This gentle separation allows for example not to have seen the kitchen robots, dishes, plates during a meal with friends or when you sit in the living room for the end of the evening. A bar or a large island can also hide the view of the kitchen floor, a place very conducive to crumbs several times a day!
For block odors, it is possible to install a canopy workshop. Very fashionable, it brings character to the interior of the house.
In addition, we also think if possible to provide the cellar nearby (and if possible also in connection with the parking space), as well as the covered terrace.
