Should your kitchen and living room match?

Every designer we spoke to has agreed that yes, in some ways, the kitchen should match the rest of your open plan space. Creating an interior that brings each of the separate zones together is key to the success of the space, and, according to Ash McCullough, Lead Designer at Blakes London, there are a few insider tricks to bear in mind.

‘The first is to try and make the kitchen as unobtrusive as possible. We like to hide as many appliances away as we can: integrate your fridge freezers, and ideally have a hidden pantry or larder cupboard where you house all your small appliances and other day-to-day items,’ she shares. ‘Careful planning of kitchen storage ensures that your surfaces  remain clear and uncluttered. This downplays the functionality of your kitchen so it can sit more harmoniously alongside the living space.’
