In the past, kitchens were simply used to prepare meals, after which the food was moved to the dining room where the family would sit down together. But today, many homeowners use their kitchen for a little bit of everything: a place for the kids to do homework, a place to enjoy a quick snack or even full-blown meal, as well as an area to entertain guests.
If you have recently attended holiday parties and family get-togethers, you are likely to have noticed the setup that the hosts prepared for the party. Maybe you've even hosted your own event and couldn't help but notice areas in which your kitchen was lacking. If you want to turn your kitchen into a great setup to host your guests, there are some factors that you need to keep in mind.
As a leader of custom homes, we have enough knowledge and experience to help you make your kitchen the great entertainment space that you want it to be. However, before doing this, it is important to consider the kind of events you host, the number of guests who attend the events and whether cooking is part of entertaining your guests. Here are some ideas to get you started on your dream kitchen.
Kitchen Island Seating
Island seating arrangement offers a perfect layout that is ideal for entertaining guests. This is especially suitable when guests want to keep a safe distance from the oven while having the opportunity to chat with the host. To create a better setting, you should consider using deep colors and allowing more natural light into the room.
An efficient layout makes it possible for even a mid-sized kitchen to accommodate up to 40 guests. The layout can also allow you to have an under-the-counter beverage refrigerator at the far end of the cabinet run. This will make it easy to keep your guests away from the cooking area. Moreover, the openness of the kitchen area together with the eating space can accommodate even more people.
Allowing room for natural light to come into your kitchen will go a long way toward enhancing the appearance of your room. However, it is also important to create versatile lighting that will allow you to match the lighting with the mood, the party and nature of your guests.
An ideal open kitchen plan is designed to allow for views and light to be shared throughout the entire space. The cooking area and eating space conveniently open up to the living room, making this a great space for having fun and entertaining guests. You should remember to include accent doors on your cabinets as they will clearly display your elegant dishware.
