The kitchen is supposed a social hub, however, it can end up just a place to cook and eat.
There are few key ingredients to keeping your kitchen a place for family and guests to feel welcome and enjoy their time.
Keep it Cozy
No one enjoys plain, boring rooms. Introduce comfortable, warm colors and lighting into the space. Add some casual seating so everyone has somewhere to sit comfortably. Adding pillows and blankets for guests curl up with is the best way to keep everyone cozy!
Make it a room with a view
When you’re planning your kitchen design, think carefully about what you’ll see when you are working and eating. Ugly spaces are uninviting. Make it a space where you will want to spend your time.
Combine kitchen and dining areas
If your kitchen includes a dining area, it will feel more like the center of a home, especially when having guests over. Not only does this create extra seating, but can keep the space intimate but very accommodating.
It is no surprise that having an open concept is one of the most common ‘requirements’ in new home buyers. People value “entertainment”, therefore, even though we try to keep face to face interactions, having visual access to the TV will keep your home feeling more connected.
