Design Tips for an Open-Concept Kitchen Design

The open-concept kitchen design in Gaithersburg MD remains a popular layout choice in most homes. It’s modern and, when planned carefully, makes a home interior feel more open and cohesive. Most likely, the open-concept kitchen design is a home’s statement area. It’s where you can show off glossy countertops or gorgeous kitchen cabinets. How can you take these visual elements from your open-concept kitchen design in Gaithersburg MD, and make them flow with the surrounding space in your home? Check out these design tips, and give the team at Signature Kitchens Additions & Baths a call!


How can you take visual elements from your open-concept kitchen design in Gaithersburg MD, and make them flow with the surrounding space in your home?

Coordinate Colors

Coordinating the color story of your open-concept kitchen with the adjacent family room or dining room is a convenient way to bring cohesion to your Gaithersburg MD home. This may not be too challenging for you to achieve even if you decide to remodel your kitchen entirely and are now looking for ways to unify the room with another. The wall paint color likely extends from one room area to the next, but don’t forget to coordinate your furniture and other decors with color accents from your kitchen design.

Use Similar Motif

You could incorporate bits of materials from your open-concept kitchen design into your living room or dining room. This way, the materials suggest a thoughtful motif from one room to the next. Like a single wall color, a single floor material is predominantly used for homes with open-concept kitchens. Therefore, laminate, luxury vinyl, and hardwood flooring already create decent continuity from one space to another. But, you have more options than just the walls, floors, and ceiling. A wood TV stand or console table could be stained the same deep brown as your kitchen cabinets. Or, if you have glamorous marble countertops, you can decorate your living space with a small marble coffee table. Even getting marble patterned coasters could be just the trick. Get creative with how you translate the decor material from one area to the next.

Make a Dining Space In Between

If your floor plan allows for it, you can bridge the gap between your kitchen to living space by setting up a dining space in between. The open-concept kitchen design in Gaithersburg MD invites easy transition and flow from where you prep food to where you can relax or entertain. Emphasizing a dining space, like a small informal dining table or even counter seating, as part of your interior design creates practical continuity from one space to the next.
