Does everyone crowd in your kitchen when you entertain friends or relatives? Unfortunately, many older kitchens weren’t built to handle large groups. They may be too small or tucked away at the back of the house away, far from the action. Luckily, it’s easy to create the perfect kitchen for entertaining. Kitchen’s are home to our most cherished memories, like Holidays, baby’s first birthday, cocktail parties with friends, Sunday breakfast with the family. Our kitchens have so much potential to create even more long lasting memories. Learn more about how a designer can help you realize more possibilities for your kitchen gatherings.
The Kitchen Island
When you have an island, your friends can sit on a stool and feel like they’re part of the action. It’s the ideal place to put them to work chopping vegetables or filling snack bowls. An island also offers a convenient place to set up a buffet or dessert bar. An Island is a welcoming space for togetherness. It is a perfect place to hold a brunch buffet or even a bridal shower. Decorate it with flowers, fruit and snacks and create a wonderful entertainment center for your friends and family.
Suitable Space for Large Parties
Quality remodeling can open up even the smallest ketches to create a more open and welcoming space for family and friends. If a new refrigerator is in your plan consider one that holds more room for wine, beer and canapés. Be sure to include shelves or cabinets to store supplies and snacks.
Don’t Forget the Children
Children love to interact in the kitchen so when remodeling be sure to keep them in mind. Of course safety is the first thing to think about when it comes to children. So discuss the best design solution for the safest kid – friendly kitchen with your kitchen designer such as smooth counter edges, child proof cabinets and keeping appliances out of reach. A party in the kitchen for children is great. Host a fun interactive party, plan a craft activity at the island such as cupcake decorating , so much fun and children love to eat the cupcake they made. The floor of your kitchen is much more conducive to a children’s party than a carpeted part of the home.
Perfect Space for a Cocktail Party
Size is certainly not a prerequisite for a great entertaining kitchen. When designing a kitchen that functions as an effective entertaining space, it’s all about the specialty features that are integrated in the space to make serving food and beverage easy. An everyday kitchen can transform into a fully function cocktail bar. There are lots of choices for choosing a style for your bar. Adding a bar makes it easier to serve appetizers and cocktails, plus it is a fun spot to mingle.
