Make Room to Create Intimacy 

With the removal of walls, there is a free-flowing space that allows for intimacy. In the kitchen, you’d probably be isolated from others in the living. With no barriers, you can now socialize outside of your kitchen space. You can interact with guests, watch your kids, listen to music, or watch TV from your kitchen.
