It happens every year: you begin to prep your kitchen for the holiday party and discover you don’t have enough counter space, there’s nowhere for your guests to hang out with you, and there’s not enough room in the pantry for your feast fixings. By the time the party is over and everyone has left, you forget about all the problems you had…until next year. Don’t wait until next year to optimize your space! Here is your guide to creating the perfect entertaining kitchen, so that you’ll always have the best party on the block.
Maximize Your Counter Space
The days of having one single wraparound counter are over. The perfect entertaining kitchen must have the perfect entertaining kitchen island. An island gives you not only more prep space, but also a designated spot for the party appetizers you spent so long whipping up. Maximizing the bottom of your island with custom cabinetry will also give you more storage space for equipment. To impress, invest in a custom kitchen island that’s as unique as your home.
Mind the Flow
Speaking of the perfect entertaining kitchen island: make sure it doesn’t interrupt the flow of your kitchen. Placement is key. If you have the space in your home, you could also consider making your whole kitchen open concept, so the prep area seamlessly flows into living areas. That way, all the places people gather during a party will be interconnected, leading everyone to easily mingle and ensure no one is left out of the fun.
Prep the Pantry
Shows like The Home Edit have finally given the kitchen pantry the attention it deserves. A spacious and organized pantry makes cooking and grocery shopping much easier, especially during holiday party season. Where are you going to fit all the extra food for your big dinner if you don’t have a proper pantry? If your goal is to keep things out of sight of you and your guests, consider a custom pantry that seamlessly blends into the rest of your cabinetry.
