Today, we will show you how sliding doors help you to achieve an open-plan kitchen. There are ways to achieve a minimal and open-plan kitchen, from utilising all surface area through to incorporating multi-purpose functionality with the finishes used. The immediate challenge of an open plan kitchen diner is bringing two spaces together to work as one coherent scheme. Clever use of materials can make a big difference with the overall look and feel. Here are a handful of easy ways to add sliding doors into your open-plan kitchen diner design, while still leaving the space feeling clean and put together.
This kitchen space has a wooden panel sliding system allowing a constant connection between kitchen and dining in a discrete fashion, which adds elegance to the space. Using the same material for the sliding system and floors creates a peppermint connection between the two. When the sliding doors are left open the space becomes one space and the space can be closed away with no interruptions.

If you like the idea of having easy access to your cooking ingredients but want the flexibility of closing them away from time to time, then a sliding storage system should be considered. This type of system will keep your open plan kitchen dining area looking neat and well-kept; add contrast to the rest of the space by introducing an additional material.

A good idea is to utilise the space behind your sink for extra storage if you have the scope to do so. This can be achieved by using a sliding system to shut it off when it’s not being used to maintain a tidy space.
