Methods of Zoning in Combined Kitchen and Living Room Interior Design

Combining the kitchen with living room not necessarily mean the complete fusion of styles, textures and design techniques. On the contrary, here we should strive for harmony of two different interiors, which are the most naturally comes into each other. Therefore, the boundary that separates the kitchen area must be designated anyway. For the execution of this we rule has a few basic techniques.


Basic and frequently used method is the construction of the bar. As a latter may act partially remained partition that once separated the area of the kitchen. Decorate such kind of a barrier wooden materials, facing stone in combination with fragments of plastic.

Double floor

Split-level floors are also popular. The kitchen area can be raised or slightly recessed with respect to the level of the entire living room. Half-a-step raised podium is a good cover for all kitchen communication. And on the contrary, plain floor  will be easier the sense of cleanliness and order. In any case, it is important that the initial ceiling height was sufficient.


Also, there is a separation technique through the construction of a delineating island, which can be in a form of either closed ring and prolonged bar or the dining table. Form of the countertop is usually performed mold-made here for the most natural fusion with other furnishings by size and aspect ratio of a living room-kitchen.

Shaped opening

You can just leave the part of the removed wall, if the remaining aperture will suit the size. It can be in the form of an arch. And in order to emphasize the transition from one room to another with located thereon miniature lamps.


Light and stylized translucent partitions are the best choice for those who still want to hide the kitchen area from prying eyes sometimes. Such barriers can be folding like an accordion, or simply shifting if necessary. A small height drop of the ceiling may also help zoning.

live plants, aquariums, screens

Fans of innovative design approach can choose the fence from living plants, narrow and elongated aquarium of original constructions, unique screens and curtains of particular style. If everything is tasteful, made with love and care, the result is sure to please all the guests and the homeowners.

Comfort, color and style

When the decision on the establishment of a single kitchen-living room is accepted, now it’s time for detailed design elaboration. Here, first of all, it is necessary to identify the main highlights. If the future kitchen is planned only for the cooking, there is enough to ensure its optimum functionality and arrange it in a minimalist style. If you want to emphasize the bright individuality, you can`t do without careful consideration of several design options.

If the kitchen is seen as one whole with a living room, then it should be sustained in the same style and color scheme.

    Wow! These are really cool ideas to differentiate the kitchen from the rest of the living space. Also, It would be helpful, if you write a blog post similar to this but for small and compact homes where you don’t have much space but need to differentiate the kitchen from other living spaces.

    I want to combine my kitchen with my living room. It makes sense that I would want to ensure that I get a have some nice openings between the two rooms. Maybe I should get an interior designer to help me figure this out. That way, I can be sure that it all works out properly.

    I think that the shaped opening looks really unique and awesome. My wife and I are remodeling most of our home this fall. We will also be getting some new interior decorations and designs that we haven’t had before.

    A properly designed interior can light you up or mar you down all in a second. Therefore, it is essential to be wise while choosing your designs.

    Another thing you need to understand is that a room is not supposed to be cluttered. A living area is meant to be free from all clutter and actually have space to add more things if the need arises. Always remember that if you don’t have enough room for each person sitting in your living area to put down a drink then your room is too cluttered.

      Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
