Key design features for any family kitchen
So, what should you include specifically, when designing a family kitchen? Well, there are a number of things, including:
- A seating area- if possible, a family kitchen should also include a kitchen table. This is great for baking and cooking with children and youngsters, as well as for sharing meals together. There are many space saving solutions that can help you fit a seating space, even in a smaller kitchen. This can include a breakfast bar, or corner seating.
- Waterproof flooring and splash-backs- protect your walls and floors with waterproof options. Tiles can be very effective, along with waterproof lino. Either way, this is essential because spilled liquids and foods will happen. Especially in a family kitchen. And waterproof flooring and splash-back areas will help prevent any damage.
- Safe storage- family kitchens tend to need a lot of storage space for the additional pots and pans, as well as the food products. The most important thing about your storage choice is that it should be safe. So make sure you choose drawers and cupboards with higher strength capacities than others, to reduce the risk of failure.
