A Kitchen Remodel Perfect For Get-Togethers.
If you love to host family and friends, a kitchen remodel can give you a better layout for entertaining. A design-build remodel will help your Reston home keep up with the demand to take your hosting capabilities to the next level! The perfect entertaining kitchen must be multi-functional—it needs to be a space you enjoy day-to-day while comfortably accommodating larger groups. These are our tips for designing a fabulous kitchen remodel perfect for entertaining.
Assess The Available Square Footage for Your Kitchen Remodel.
Although you don’t need a large footprint to create a great entertaining kitchen, you’ll want to maximize what’s available. Taking down a wall or two will open the sightlines in your home and allow natural light to flow through the space. Adding a mobile island allows you to adapt a smaller kitchen to the occasion quickly.
An Open Concept Layout Is Best.
It’s no secret that opening up your kitchen, living room, and dining room creates the perfect layout for entertaining. Your guests can gather where they’re comfortable while still being together.
Add An Island (Or Two!).
Have you ever noticed that guests tend to congregate in the kitchen? Embrace this natural tendency by adding an island. You can serve hors d’oeuvres to the group while continuing your prep work and socializing at the same time. Talk about multi-tasking!
Include A Beverage Station.
When you’re hosting large groups, it’s frustrating to be tripping over one another in the kitchen. By designing a separate beverage station in your remodel, your guests will be able to help themselves to drinks without disrupting the flow of your kitchen work space.
Convenient Clean Up.
As your gathering winds down, the last thing you want to worry about is tidying up. Choosing durable, easy-to-clean surfaces and materials will make your job a sinch. You can also install toe kick vacuums for quick sweeping. The right choice of countertops, flooring, paint, and appliances will keep your entertaining kitchen ready at a moment’s notice.
In A Kitchen Remodel, The More Storage, The Better.
The countdown is on—your guests are arriving any minute! With an abundance of storage space, you can conceal clutter in a pinch. Plus, when your kitchen tools are stored away in their appropriate place, you’ll never have to worry about where you stuck the serving spoons.
