The holiday season is right around the corner and with the oncoming festivities, the large family parties and the friendly get-togethers tag along. On a normal day the kitchen is the heart of the home, but during a soiree it is the belle of the ball so what can you do to make your Kitchen look and feel like a high end hosting destination. Whether you are in the market to design a Kitchen renovation or make simple changes here are some Key Elements to an Entertainers Dream Kitchen:
- Open Concept:
The draw to open concept floor plans is the way it makes small rooms seem big, not to mention you can be everywhere without having to move. During parties it is essential to not break up the group. Having an open concept gives the area a larger feeling and leaves your guests feeling less cramped and able to move around and visit without having to move room to room.
- Musical Chairs:
Although the open concept makes it easy to move around it is also important to have plenty of seating areas. Many of the designs we are seeing and implementing today include large sit-at islands or bar seating for guests to relax and enjoy the aesthetics of your party and your kitchen.
- Plenty of Food:
The key to a good party is the food and having enough of it. Whether you are catering or enjoying some home cooking, having double ovens, large pantries, and spacious refrigerators are the key to keeping the menu simple and easy to execute.
- Clean Up:
After the party is over and the memories have been made there will still be dishes to be done and trash to be thrown away. Hidden trash cans are a large trend that we are seeing and trash compactors are making their vintage debut. Farmhouse sinks are known for their stylish flair, but they also have large basins for hard to tackle cleaning.
