Island Kitchen Home Plans Complement an Open Floor Plan

A gourmet kitchen is the number one luxury item that most homeowners are looking for in a dream house plan. Even smaller home designs are opting for larger and more functional kitchens. To make up for this added space in the kitchen, many floor plans now offer a single dining area instead of having a separate breakfast nook and formal dining room. A gourmet kitchen with an island or bar can easily take the place of a breakfast nook.

Open floor plans are a trend that seems to be here to stay. An open concept home plan makes it easy to entertain and helps your house feel larger, even with less square footage. An island kitchen provides additional storage and counter space and aids in keeping the kitchen open to the other living spaces. Your kitchen island may hold your sink and dishwasher. You can set up your cooking range in the island or keep it completely open for meal prep and dining. A kitchen island is a great space to lay out snacks or serve family-style meals. Design your island kitchen layout to meet your needs.
