An open kitchen can be one of the most fetching aspects of a property. It’s a great acoutrement to a party, where so many guests wind up in the kitchen anyway. It can also just be a great feeling to be able to interact with your family while you’re making dinner.
Of course, there are some detractors, as described by Houzz. Some don’t want their kitchen mess, smells and so forth to be on display to their guests. Well, here are a few tips on how to handle architectural design and privacy at the same time.
You might consider installing a sliding door between the kitchen and the rest of the house in order to give yourself the option of privacy – or lack thereof. You can also choose to close off the section of the kitchen that tends to get most messy – for example, the stove area or countertops.
A translucent door might be the answer, as it gives the illusion of openness mixed with a sense of privacy. Houzz also recommends metal mesh curtains as an option here.
