Kitchens are so much more than just a place to cook. They’re where we spend time together, catching up, eating and unwinding. So whether you’re creating a kitchen from scratch or remodeling, you’ll want your kitchen to be stylish as well as practical. What you choose to be in the kitchen can make a huge difference to its family-friendly appeal. Take a look at these 7 tips to make sure your kitchen is what your dreams are made of.
1. A large island is wonderful if you have the space. It’s a great place for kids to do homework while parents make dinner and a general family gathering space.
2.Stain resistant and mark resistant countertops will keep the stress at bay and ensure a little spill or wear-and-tear doesn’t ruin your counter.
3.Should you do a lot of heavy cooking, the kitchen floor can get really wet and oily. Other than keeping your floor clean and dry, prevent slips and falls from happening by choosing tiles with texture.
4.From cabinets to countertops, ensure that your kitchen is free from sharp edges. Plus, if you have small kids consider leaving room to store a stool under the sink that they can pull out.
5.Similarly, a counter shielded by a glass backsplash lets your family in on what you’re doing without interfering or eating into your workspace.
6.Curious toddlers may wander into your kitchen in search of new “toys”. Keep pots and electrical items out of reach by placing them in shelves over the counter.
7.Depending on your home’s size and layout, you may also want to dedicate a little desk as a place for charging phones, checking mails, doing art & craft and the like.
Make sure you imbibe these simple, yet highly functional tips into your kitchen and see the space transform!
