When you are entertaining it’s a circus act trying to cook and talk with your guests at the same time. But these kitchen layouts make it possible. Here are 7 layouts that transform you into a star entertainer.
1. Semi-Circular Island
The large, semi-circular island has plenty of space for multiple chefs and seating for guests to sit down with a drink and get caught up with their hosts.
A bar or drink station right in the kitchen has everything you need within arm’s reach: wine, glasses, cocktail necessities, and a wine refrigerator under the counter. Now you can be in the center of the action instead of locked away in the kitchen.
3. Butler’s Pantry
Every host needs the extra space a pantry offers. Outfit it with a sink, storage, and a refrigerator/freezer combo so the kitchen stays clutter-free for cooking and socializing.
4. Open Layout
When the kitchen flows into the dining and living areas, you are never far away from your guests. To get some extra storage, use low, free-standing cabinets behind furniture.
Plenty of seating in the kitchen area encourages your guests to get comfortable. Try building in nooks next to windows or bring a sofa into the kitchen for a lounge feel.
Extend your open format kitchen right out onto the backyard deck. Sliding glass or French doors let you move the party easily from the kitchen to the bbq.
When you invite guests into your kitchen, you want it to look great as well as being comfortable. Choose colors and materials that are timeless yet contemporary—style that will take you from trend to trend. Neutral colors, stone, glass, and wood-looks never go out of style. Use accessories to add a pop of color or a trendy flair.
