No matter the size of the living room or the dining table, most of the guests spend most of the time in the kitchen. For this reason, it is important to make the kitchen lively, inviting, and entertaining to give your guests a great experience. Despite the size of your kitchen, you can easily make it interesting and attractive to your guests through good planning and organization of the available space which ensures that everything is put in the right place. Below are several ways of making your kitchen entertaining and attractive to your guests.
Determine the kind of events you hold more often
The kind of events you hold from time to time determine the kind of décor, cutlery, cookery, and the fittings. You can have a kitchen reorganized for casual, buffet, sit down or formal events. Moreover, you should determine if the cooking is an important part of the event. Also, determine whether you will be cooking alongside your guests or hire caterers to do the cooking for you.
Features to include in the kitchen:
Warming drawers: The drawers help keep the food warm as guests mingle and interact with each other.
Raised countertops: You can have an island with a raised countertop to serve as the cooking station while at the same time storing the dishes. You can also use it as a snack bar or just a place to gather around while in the kitchen.
Television: This will be an efficient source of entertainment for your guests especially when there are sports actions, major events, and other shows.
Catering workspace: If most of the time you hire caterers and have enough space in your kitchen, you can reserve some space for butler’s pantry and install all the key appliances such as a sink, dishwasher, refrigeration and the oven.
Other things that you might have in your kitchen include wet bars, a good coffee maker, wine cooler, and glass cabinets where you can show off some of your beautiful glassware and dishware. Lastly, a kitchen renovation can be a beautiful enhancement for your home. Interested in having a kitchen renovation?
