Kitchens and the Holidays (Part 2 of 4 Part Series)

Come on in…! You’re going to be “floor-ed”. A little humor there, but seriously, you might think entertaining is all about having A LOT of floor space to move in. But, you might be surprised to know that layout is king!

Open floor plans seem ideal for entertaining. The space feels larger, is easier to move about with fewer visual barriers. However, layout efficiency, traffic flow and work zones, are more important than an open floor plan.

Here are a couple of examples from some of our recent projects….

These photos feature some smaller footprint kitchens with separate zones for cooking, prepping, clean-up and hanging out.  Small but mighty spaces!

Drawing to Edge of Cook Zone

For entertaining ease, try to establish separate cooking and clean up zones. Utilize raised countertops or visual displays to separate guests from your food prep. Keep in mind that great kitchens draw guests to the edge of the cook zone but not into it!

This holiday season don’t be intimidated by size or lack of it. Establish some defined areas, recruit some guests, and enjoy. That’s what this time of year is all about, gathering together!
