The kitchen has long been considered the heart of the home, but this is now being expanded to combine with other rooms in the home, creating a kitchen hybrid. Here at Priory Kitchen Studio, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design professionals and this is our guide to everything you should know about creating a hybrid kitchen.

What are the different types of hybrid kitchen?

There are a number of different types of hybrid kitche that can be created. These include:

  • Kitchen office hybrids- kitchens with a designated area for office equipment and working are becoming increasingly popular. These can be very effective in any home, offering dedicated working space, without compromising on the quality of the kitchen design.
  • Kitchen dining room hybrids- kitchens and dining rooms have long been combined into one large space and this can be very effective for family spaces and when creating a kitchen for entertaining.
  • Kitchen living room hybrids- these are more often referred to as open plan kitchens, where the kitchen is part of a larger room or space, including a living area. Zonal areas are important for these, to segment the area and maintain functionality.

What are the considerations for hybrid kitchens?

When creating a hybrid space there are a number of important considerations to take into account. These include:

  • The flow of the space- its important that a hybrid kitchen has a useful flow allowing the different area to be fully utilised, without being in the way of any practical functions or activities in the kitchen.
  • The design and style- creating a hybrid kitchen can be a big asset to any property but its important that you maintain a clear and strong style throughout the space, with each area complementing the other.
