With consumer lifestyle habits shifting towards family and social dining in the home this year's kitchen trend is moving towards open plan living. In-toto has seen an increase in demand for relaxing seating and formal and informal dining spaces to be incorporated into the kitchen area. Breakfast bars, lower seating areas and soft furnishing are now an integral part of kitchen designs utilising space in the home.
Wanting to make the kitchen as practical and functional as possible, In-toto's designs also reflect the need for good storage solutions. The Roll-fronted aluminium units offer a striking contemporary twist and are fantastic for hiding away small appliances or crockery, and the walk-in corner larder maximises the use of awkward spaces. The cupboards are cleverly laid out while tall units and horizontal drawers create easy access to get in and out of.
In-toto offers a clever under-sink drawer to provide even more storage space for cleaning products, sponges and cloths that would otherwise just get space on the base of the unit.
Advice on how to integrate your living area with your kitchen while maximising the storage potential is essential so it is important to talk to an experienced kitchen designer who can show you a plan of how it will work in your home before you start.
In-toto Newcastle owner, John McNeil, explains. "We work very closely with all of our customers to create a design that reflects their personality and taste. We fully support the trend towards open plan living so that people get the most out of the space."

John adds: "There is little more reassuring than the security of knowing our kitchen - often the very heart and hub of the home - will fulfil our needs, our expectations and our changing lifestyles for years to come."
