Are Enclosed Kitchens Making A Comeback?

Open-concept living has long been a popular home design trend, but there's a growing resurgence in enclosed kitchens for new homes. This shift is challenging the once-prevalent open family room and kitchen layouts. The choice between an enclosed kitchen and an open layout has distinct advantages and disadvantages.

In an open kitchen format, you have the advantage of keeping a watchful eye on your children while preparing meals, making it a family-friendly choice. It also creates a welcoming environment for cooking with friends, allowing you to enjoy conversations over wine and appetizers right in the kitchen.

Conversely, enclosed kitchens provide a more traditional dining experience by creating separation between the living room and dining area. This design allows families to gather around a conventional dining table, free from distractions originating in the living room. Moreover, an enclosed kitchen effectively contains cooking odors and keeps unsightly dirty dishes hidden from your guests.

For those contemplating the renovation of an older home and considering the removal of walls to establish an open space, it's essential to reconsider this decision in light of the prevailing 2023 trend favoring enclosed kitchens.
