The Social Kitchen Part 1

Feb 26, 2021 | Blog

The kitchen is one of the most multi-functional rooms in a home.  It is forever transforming into whatever the homeowner and family needs it to be, which means that it is the hub of a lot of activity.

Whether it’s a snack, a fast meal, a friendly gathering, or in recent times the base for the home business or education related tasks, whatever the many uses of your kitchen, you need a design that accommodates everyone’s social needs.


The Island, Bar and Stools


If your custom designed kitchen has to morph into what you need it to be, an island can instantly create a more social kitchen.  Dependent on the size, it can become the focal point and gathering spot for friends and family, not to mention the extra cabinet storage you gain for food, pots/pans, appliances and other kitchenware.  An island can store items directly related to social activities, such as wine, games and books, let alone the really useful additional space for food prep


Do you like the U or L shaped Kitchen?


A u-shaped kitchen is an efficient design that frees up floor space. Its u-shaped design makes it easy for homeowners to access various areas of the kitchen without needing to walk across the room.

There are loads of great reasons to choose an L-shaped layout for your new kitchen; it’s highly functional, easy to maintain and practical to work in, to name just a few.

Next week we are going to share some ideas with on the same theme about floor plans.

Have a great weekend
