Kitchen-living room design
When organizing a combined living room, the future design should be carefully planned. For cooking, you should select a narrow strip, which occupies about 1/3 of the total free space. The working area from the living room can be separated by decorative translucent partitions or a hedge of indoor plants. Zoned space can be with the help of light. Spot lighting around the perimeter of the ceiling, darkening the workplace and highlighting the seating area will create the illusion of a holistic and harmonious space.
