If you love nothing more than entertaining at home then it’s a good idea to keep this in mind when designing your kitchen. Besides being a place to eat, drink and prepare food, the kitchen is a great hangout spot and when done right, can become the ultimate entertainers kitchen and the perfect place to spend quality time with family and friends. Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your dream kitchen that complements your sociable lifestyle.
Open Plan Kitchens Are A Host’s Dream
The feast you’re preparing is actually going to be ready an hour later than planned but your guests are already arriving. Let’s face it, we’ve all been, in fact for the most part we do this every single time. Having an open plan layout however, will make this problem a thing of the past. Whether you’re still cooking or not, you’ll be able to continue socialising with your guests as you glance over the island keeping your eye on the stove while you hang out with your guests at the same time.
Not usually a word you associate with kitchens but trust us when we say creating connectivity in the kitchen is important. Make sure everyone can effortlessly move from the kitchen to other areas in the home. Not only does it make the kitchen far more inviting but it won’t feel cramped when everyone’s there, allowing others to spill out with ease into other areas of the home.
Make That Island Work For You
An island can be a real defining feature in the home. Not only is it a place to prepare food, it’s a hangout spot, a place to lean when your guests are chatting amongst each other. Throw in a few stools and make sure it houses a great drinks fridge for the perfect anchor in your dream kitchen.
Think Smart When Considering Storage
Having an entertainer-friendly kitchen isn’t just about the layout, it’s also about the look too. Keep it clean and clutter-free with built in fridge-freezers as well as clean and neat storage that hides utensils, pots, pans and even small appliances. This helps ensure your kitchen isn’t a mess when guests arrive…even those unexpected ones.
Think Cool Splash Backs And Lighting
There are so many things you can do with splash backs now-a-days. You’re no longer limited to tiles. Think polished concrete, extensions of your granite worktop and even incredibly intricate glass designs. You can also bring in amazing lighting design, underneath cupboards and along kick-boards to really draw attention to where you want it to be.
