Models that adapt to your living room
American kitchen models are a rising trend in recent years. American kitchen models are kitchens that combine with the living room and provide a more comfortable use both in your daily meals and while hosting your guests. The fact that the kitchen part is separate and independent from the hall restricts the connection and living conditions between the two separate parts of the house. Open kitchen models create a more intimate atmosphere. While preparing your meal in your kitchen on the one hand, you can continue to chat with your guests or the family in the living room.
