Open-concept kitchens are wonderful for flexibility between rooms—for example, you can cook an amazing pasta dish in the kitchen and migrate right to the couch to eat it. But, if you're a bit stumped as to how you should decorate your open kitchen so that it looks top-notch, we have you covered.
Consider the seven tips from professional interior designers below. They touch on everything to keep in mind when working with this type of space, as it pertains to accessories, layout, appliance placement, and much more.

Kitchens that feature double islands are rising in popularity, and in an open kitchen in particular, adding a second island to the mix can yield a number of benefits.
«I like to incorporate a second island, as it puts the gathering space at the outside edge of the island, as opposed to the inner edge, creating a literal physical boundary between the workspace and the gathering space,» explains Cathy Purple Cherry, the founder of Purple Cherry Architects.
Of course, opting for a large dining table will achieve similar results. «When you put a good-sized dining table with a generous amount of seating, it starts to define the space as where to go to eat and where to go to cook,» says Linda Hayslett, the founder of LH.Designs.

But, there's one decorating movement that’s ridden the trend wave for years (and years) now, and we want an answer to its ultimate trendiness: farmhouse design. After a decade of shiplap walls and barn doors saturating the interior design world, the question remains: is farmhouse still in style? Or, should you set down the distressed wood and try another trend? We asked two design experts for their thoughts.
