Do you want your kitchen to be the heart of your home and more than just a place to cook and eat?
There are key ingredients to keeping your kitchen a place for family, friends and guests to feel welcome and comfortable.
Keep it Cozy
People don’t enjoy stark, plain, rooms. Introduce warm, cozy colors into your space. Add extra, casual seating. Having pillows, blankets, and spaces for guests to spend their time where they are comfortable and happy is all it takes to make them cozy!
Make it a room with a view
When you’re planning your kitchen design, think carefully about the view you’ll have when working and eating in it. No one wants to spend time in an ugly space. An attractive one will make it much more inviting for your guests and yourself. Dishes are much more exciting if you have a gorgeous view, rather than a brick wall.
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.
