Dividers great for opening up small kitchens ★★★★★
Small kitchens can sometimes feel claustrophobic, so homeowners are often looking for ways to open up the room.
Of course knocking down the wall between the kitchen and dining or living areas is one way to achieve this.
However, the open plan look is not for everyone, so those who prefer to keep their kitchen separate could consider a divider instead.
In an article for the San Fernando Valley Sun, interiors expert Rose Bennett Gilbert said a furniture item such as an open hutch can expose the kitchen without allowing it to run seamlessly into the living space.
She suggested fitting a ceiling-high hutch that can double as a bar or food serving area for the dining room.
A divider could suit those with a traditional kitchen, as a open hutch lends itself perfectly to the country kitchen look, particularly when decorated with ceramic plates or fitted with an old-fashioned wine rack.
