Tips for Creating a Family-Friendly Kitchen
Kitchens are one of the most popular rooms in any home. Parents and children come together in kitchens to cook, eat and socialise.
However, some kitchens are more family-friendly than others based on their design and layout. So if you want a family-friendly kitchen for your home, you need to consider giving your kitchen a makeover.
Below are the top three tips for creating a family-friendly kitchen.
1) Create an Open Plan Kitchen
An open plan kitchen is the most family-friendly style because it eliminates the walls and barriers between the kitchen, dining room, and living room to create more space. This design makes it phenomenally easier for families to dine and socialise together.
2) Have Adequate Storage
Each family member has different foods and kitchenware they enjoy. That is why the ideal family-friendly kitchen will have sufficient cabinetry and drawers to segregate the food items and supplies for various family members in the home.
Think about creating a kitchen island for the drawer and cabinet space and a pantry for storing extra food items.
3) Easy Wipe Surfaces
Kids make many messes in the kitchen by spilling drinks and food on the countertops and flooring. If you want to make your cleaning job more manageable, install surface materials that are easier to clean and wipe.
For instance, quartz is one of the best countertop materials for a family-friend kitchen because it is durable and less porous. As for the flooring, use tiling throughout the entire open kitchen, including the living room and dining room areas. Then you can clean messes off the floor easily and quickly without worrying about staining rugs or carpets.
