The holidays provide the perfect opportunity for you to revamp your kitchen. As you fill up your house with friends and family, you’ll need a kitchen that functions as well as it looks. You may want to add some space in addition to adding components or accessories. Let’s take a look at some ideas that may spark your creativity.
Add Stylish Seating
Create comfort in the kitchen by installing built-in seating in the open area or by the window. Lounge-style seating gives your guests an opportunity to socialize while you’re putting the finishing touches on the holiday meal. Comfortable seating allows you to connect with others in the kitchen without the need for floor expansion or a total room makeover.
Create a Fireplace Centerpiece
Why not add a fireplace to make the area a little more cozy? A fireplace may just be what everyone enjoys most during the winter holiday. If you set the fireplace into a wall that adjoins the kitchen to a living room or den, you can create a double fireplace so that guests can enjoy it on both sides. Add a beautiful hearth that enhances your kitchen design.
Enhance Outside Viewing
Is your kitchen too dark and dreary? Instead of adding more light fixtures, you can illuminate your kitchen with skylights, bay windows, or bow windows. Kitchens are also a great place to install patio or French doors. Larger windows give you and your guests a grander view of the outside while helping you save money on lighting costs. You can have your windows custom-designed to fit right into your current kitchen design.
Open Up the Room with Glass-Front Cabinets
You can open up your kitchen area without expanding the room by installing glass-front cabinet doors. You don’t have to replace the entire cabinet. Shop around for glass doors that already match the cabinets you have. Just switch out the doors, and your room instantly feels larger. Your guests will never have to wonder where the dishware is again. They’ll also love how colorful your kitchen is.
Make Your Waste Basket More Accessible
It doesn’t have to be difficult for your guests to find or get to your garbage can. Although you may want your garbage to be close to the sink, you can either move the bin or add another garbage and recycling bin in another area of the kitchen, preferably where guests can access it easily. By positioning the garbage in an area away from the sink or stove, your kitchen work will not be interrupted.
