A kitchen with central island

A kitchen with central island

The owners of this apartment, located in the Gràcia neighborhood of Barcelona, ​​wanted to reorganize their home so that living room, dining room and kitchen Share space. For them, the Clysa company, in collaboration with Male Rizo Patron, of the MM Interior Design studio, devised this solution: an open, spacious kitchen, integrated in the living room although located at a higher level. A central work island becomes a dining room, between the living room and the kitchen itself. The result is an open and multifunctional space, in which the different zones are defined without betraying the continuity of the whole.

The entire plant receives abundant light from the outside through the large window of the living room. This is enhanced with white furniture and simple lines. The space is personalized in the kitchen with a front lined with a colorful and colorful floral wallpaper.

In addition, this kitchen has a corner for a laundry room, which removes the washing machine from the kitchen and provides more storage space.
