When there are no dividing walls, it is essential to take special care of the work area to integrate into the decoration. Maintaining harmony favors continuity between spaces, something exciting in an open kitchen. However, special coatings have been used on the floor and on the wall with a hydraulic in warm tones and rustic stone, respectively, to mark the difference between the environments.
