Open-plan Kitchen and Living room

There was a time when homes were built with lots of separate rooms, all with their own individual purpose, but in recent years open plan spaces became one of the most popular features of a home. Open plan layout may look great and come with obvious benefits, such as light that flows, the ability to allow you to socialise with guests whilst cooking or keep an eye on the children. There are some downsides to it as well, such as cooking smell wafting into living spaces or no place to hide while cooking. I guess if you are not a messy cook and have got a good extractor fan, than there are more advantages than disadvantages to the open-plan living.
