4 Reasons Why You Should Knock Down the Wall Between Your Kitchen and Dining Room

Thinking of removing a wall between kitchen and dining room? We think that's a great idea...

The trend of knocking down a wall between the kitchen and dining room has been on the rise for years. And that has only increased since the pandemic! It makes sense when you think about it, as it's been over a year where whole families have been at home together.

If you've been on the fence about removing a wall between kitchen and dining room for a while now, here are four reasons why you should go for it!

The perks of removing a wall between kitchen and dining room

1. It creates an open space

One of the biggest perks of removing a wall between kitchen and dining room is that it creates an open space with no walls separating any areas. This makes cooking meals and gathering around a table far more sociable than before.

An open concept also helps improve the overall flow of the house. With many walls and separate rooms, the layout can feel quite choppy and disjointed. But with an open kitchen-diner, each room flows easily into the others.

2. It creates a bigger and brighter room

The biggest draw for knocking a kitchen-diner together is that it creates a space that is bigger and brighter than before. This is both aesthetically pleasing but also good for our mental state too!

One of the worst things we can do for our health is to spend a lot of time in a room with no windows or lights. As you can imagine, making an open kitchen allows plenty of natural light to pour in while also giving everyone a view of what is happening at all times.

3. It improves functionality

When the kitchen and dining room are separate, it can be a pain to have to cross between the two to serve the food and clean up. Add more traffic into the mix, with the children coming into the kitchen to get drinks and so on, and it can be a nightmare. That's what they mean when they say "there are too many cooks in the kitchen!"

Removing a wall between kitchen and dining room makes all the difference to this process. It's easier access for everyone to get what they need from both rooms and as we all know, convenience is everything. Especially when we are busy cooking or hosting!

4. It gives you more time together

When a kitchen and dining room are separate, it can be difficult to have people over or host a dinner party. This is because the two rooms tend to feel isolated from one another. When they are combined into one cohesive space, however, it is much easier to entertain and hang out in this environment.

Whether it's hosting friends or cooking for the family, the cook no longer has to be isolated in the kitchen. With an open space, they can chat with family or friends while they sit at the table and everyone can spend quality time together. No more missing out!
