Stylish Kitchen Islands
Even though they require a little more space, kitchen islands can be a great addition to your kitchen. They not only are very useful when it comes to preparing meals, they can also be converted into a inspirational workspace. The light and spacious feel of sitting at a kitchen island can help trigger creativity and excitement while you are working. There are so many beautiful materials to choose from and you can spruce up a kitchen island with some contemporary, modern bar stools.
Opt For Floating Open Shelves
Floating open shelves look clean and classic and there are so many stylish options to choose from. You can use the shelves to keep all of your things neat and tidy in a place that is easily accessible. If you opt for a kitchen island, there will be plenty of space for open shelves underneath and around the work surface. Use your open shelves to further replicate your office environment, by storing decorative items that you would typically have on your desk at work, such as photo frames.
Knocking Down Walls
Even though his idea might seem slightly intense, if you’re working from home for the foreseeable future, it may make sense to expand your kitchen area by knocking down walls. Do you feel like you would be more productive in a wider, open space than being cooped up and surrounded by four walls for a large chunk of your day? This could have a negative impact on your concentration, productivity and mental health. By opening out the space you already have you can let more natural light in and create an inviting atmosphere that’s both beautiful and convenient. You can link the rooms together with a large archway or wood beams overhead and a neutral color palette can create a smooth transition between the living room, kitchen, and beyond.
