Are you always the guest and never the hostess? Do you wish you could plan beautiful dinner parties with your friends and family, but your kitchen layout just doesn’t work for you? If your kitchen is holding you back from realizing your entertaining dreams, now is the time to remodel your kitchen to make it more party-friendly. Check out these design ideas from your friends at LPB Construction Inc. and learn how you can open up your space and create a hostess’ dream kitchen.
Add an Island
Kitchen islands are an invaluable part of an entertainer’s kitchen. They provide extra workspace and give your kitchen a central area to gather around. If you have the space, a larger island with bar stools can even give your guests extra space to sit while they help you prepare food, or just catch up over drinks and a charcuterie board. You can even use this extra space to house your sink, dishwasher, or range cooktop for even more functionality.
Open It Up
Next, it’s time to channel your inner Joanna Gaines and tear down a wall or two! Open concept kitchens and living spaces are the best way to create the ideal space to entertain. Walls close you off from the action and can make hosting a lot less fun. However, when you open up the space by removing a wall, you’ll be able to play the hostess and enjoy your guests at the same time. Removing a wall may seem like a large endeavor, however, our professional team will be able to discern which walls can be safely removed, and we will help you decide if this option is best for your home.
Think of the Kids
Finally, while the goal is to make your kitchen more entertaining-friendly, you always want it to work for your everyday life. As you take on this remodel, consider incorporating a homework space or family command center to give your kids a space separate from the food to work. Usually, this space will consist of extra counter space with a family calendar, mail organizer, and extra shelves for supplies.
