Kitchens aren't just for cooking. Open concept layouts are found more and more in homes, and are opening the kitchen up to the whole family. From a quick breakfast on the way out the door to family game night, a kitchen plays so many roles in your daily life. When you are designing, updating or redecorating a kitchen, you want to think of all the ways that the space will be used.

From a desk for organizing bills and family schedules to a large table for family dining, game night or school projects, Catherine-Lucie Horber made sure her design would leave this kitchen ready for whatever her client's family needed. Working with a stunning picture window, Evelyn Eshun took advantage of an already open feel by matching the lower cabinets to the hardwood floors to visually expand her client's kitchen space.

In large open concept kitchens, area rugs can add character and help absorb sound. Comfortable stools, a spacious island and task lighting draw the family in for a leisurely breakfast, afternoon snack or as place to simply relax and chat. Both kitchens, designed by Kris Brigden provide a feeling that's equally as open as it is warm and comforting.
