The kitchen and dining room are usually attached as it makes sense to have the room where you prepare your food next to the room where you sit down and eat. However, a lot of homeowners feel they would rather their kitchen and dining room be part of the same open space.
Kitchen and dining room renovations account for quite a large proportion of the home renovations that are conducted up and down the UK simply because they are often the most practical and appealing.

This approach also allows cool kitchen design to creep further into the house which is a real advantage if you love a more modern style.
