The holidays are coming up. Don’t you wish that you could host your friends and family this year? You wouldn’t have to do any traveling and you could finally put to use all of those entertaining ideas you have saved on Pinterest. But your space is crowded, cramped, and has no flow for large groups of people. It sounds like you are ready for a kitchen remodel. The kitchen experts at Booher Remodeling Company have several ideas on how to open up your space to create an entertainer’s dream kitchen. 

Kitchen Design Ideas for Entertaining

Living the Island Life

Kitchen islands are a huge trend in recent years, and one that is here to stay. Islands of all sizes provide extra work space and a central area to gather around. A larger island with bar stools gives your guests extra seating when helping to prepare the food or just catching up over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Many people choose to incorporate a sink and dishwasher, or a range cooktop into their island to add even more functionality. 

Tear Down This Wall

Open concept kitchens and living spaces are the best way to create the ideal entertaining hub. Wide, open spaces make it easy for traffic to flow in and out of every area. You’ll never be closed off from the action when you have a clear line of sight to everything that’s going on. Sometimes this involves removing a wall, which may seem like a large endeavor. But, our professional team will be able to discern which walls can be safely removed and we will help you decide if this option is best for your home. 

Happy Homeworkers

Can a family really have too many work spaces? In your new kitchen, bring your family together by incorporating a homework space or family command center. This usually consists of an extra counter space that can be used as a desk. You can make it separate from where you prepare and eat food so that your kids can work on homework while you are making dinner. You can also include a family calendar, mail organizer, and extra shelves for supplies. This is also a great way to keep the kid space separate from the grown-up space when entertaining.
