The American kitchen with living room is the most democratic model and one of the most used because it allows people to interact even being in different environments. Another point that makes the American kitchen a success is the optimization of space.
Whether big or small, this style of kitchen requires some care, such as being always organized and clean, after all, it is an open environment that integrates with other areas of the house.
When choosing this kitchen model, it is important to remember that the project will need to be designed for the entire space and not just for the kitchen, open spaces need to have a decoration that can promote integration and functionality of the spaces.
Below, we have selected several models of American kitchen integrated with dining and living room for you.
