How to zone the kitchen

For kitchen zoning, it is important that the dimensions of the room allow for the implementation of two full zones. If square meters are not enough, then you should consider the possibility of combining the kitchen and living room.

Kitchen and living room zoning: physical boundaries

One of the most simple and functional ways to zoning a kitchen and living room is the bar counter. Chairs should be turned to the cooking area, which allows households to have a meal at the front desk as well as in the dining area. However, the bar counter allows you to hide from the field of view all household utensils.

A more expensive solution is a different floor height. In this case, the floor of the kitchen area is raised using a continuous podium, and in the dining room it remains at the same level.

Kitchen Zoning: Decorative Techniques

Without any physical boundaries, zoning can be done using a contrasting color solution. The bright colors of the kitchen area will look good against the background of a deeper color dining room.

Additionally, you can experiment with different materials. For example, in the kitchen as a floor covering you can use tile. In turn, the floor in the dining area can be covered with carpet or parquet. So without any bulky designs, the territory of the kitchen and dining room will be divided.

At the same time, a contrast lighting solution allows creating a border between the zones. In this case, you should decide - which of the areas will need more light. Most often, the choice falls on the cooking zone. In this case, an intensive chandelier with several lamps is installed on the kitchen part of the room. In turn, spotlights are installed in the dining area, which allow you to create a cozy twilight, good for family dinners and romantic dinners.
