Small living room and kitchen design combo ideas

Combination design is one of the most useful ways to maximize the space of a small house. It recognizes the facts that most spaces are only used in certain times, which creates a lot of idle time for that particular time. By combining 2 functions, such as a living room and a kitchen, the usage time of a space increases dramatically. This concept is particularly useful for small houses as it means that one common space can be used for multiple functions, thus making it unnecessary to have the necessary floor space to cater to all functions at once.

In this article, we will look at 7 different ideas on how to combine a small living room and kitchen together.

Kitchens were once hidden the back of the house. Now, the kitchen has become the centerpiece of many new homes.

A century ago, kitchens were relegated to the back of the house. A kitchen far removed from the social areas of the home was a sign of affluence. Yet today, many Americans recognize the kitchen as the true heart of family gatherings and design the room accordingly.

A recent study by the Electrolux group found that kitchens are being used for much more than food preparation. Nearly nine in 10 Americans (86%) are involved in some sort of activity in their kitchen besides cooking or eating, and more than two-thirds of adults (67%) say they use their kitchen to socialize and entertain guests.
