The kitchen is a special place in the home where we gather with family and friends to prepare meals, dine, host parties with loved ones, and sometimes even use the extra counter space as a home office. Even the smallest adjustments to your kitchen design can have a major impact on the way friends and family use this room.
Our contractors at Spartacus Construction have put together a list of kitchen remodeling techniques that will turn your kitchen into the social hub you’ve always dreamed of.
Expand your counter space
Kitchen remodeling contractors know the value of counter space when it comes to bringing people together. Whether you are getting ready for some serious holiday baking with the kids or hosting a dinner party with plenty of large platter ideas in mind; a sufficient amount of counter space is the key to encouraging you and your loved ones to come together and share this space. If you are limited on counter space, consider adding an island to the center of your kitchen.
Encourage dining in the kitchen
Adding a pub table, or simply a few stools alongside an island can be a great tool for encouraging friends and family to sit and relax together, without taking up too much space. When there is room to relax, dine, or get some work done in the kitchen, you and your family will be able to keep each other company while the person in charge of cooking dinner is hard at work.
Choose materials that are up to the task
Turning your kitchen into a hangout spot can sometimes be hard on your kitchen materials. When remodeling your kitchen, it is important to keep this in mind and have contractors work with sturdy, durable materials such as stainless steel.
An open kitchen plan
This is a great way for those who have a small amount of kitchen space to allow multiple people to flow through the room and socialize. When the kitchen is open to the neighboring rooms, the space will feel much larger, and friends and family can interact whether or not they are in the kitchen.
