In a quickly changing environment and with the change in times, work is too demanding to where families lack time for each other. What you need is a kitchen where meals can be prepared as conversations are going on and everyone can catch up with each other`s day. While meeting the standards of such a kitchen there are a few elements you will need to consider. We have put in place these elements in three propositions; setting up a kitchen table, merging the dining area with the kitchen and strategically arranging your kitchen appliances to allow room for movement.
- Setting up a kitchen table.
This may be a pretty simple table with sit around set up of stools or chairs around in the middle of the kitchen area or towards the edge. You may also try an extravagant set up where you actually put up a concrete well furnished table with drawers and inlet stools and chairs. Although expensive the concrete marble table would give the kitchen a warm and family touch to your kitchen.
1. Merging the dining area with the kitchen.
Compared to the previous separation of the dining with the kitchen with an opening for passing food from the kitchen, it may advisable to remove the wall and have a clear opening. The wall separating the two could form for a table instead between the dining and the kitchen.
- Arrangement of kitchen appliances.
The kitchen cabinets and drawers are at the level above the head which may be hard for some family members to reach them. Kitchen drawers in the middle alongside the kitchen table could create room for family members. Utensils and cutlery for special occasions could be set up in the top drawers and shelves.
Cookers and ovens could make for one side of the kitchen area to avoid accidents and allow movement of the other members while the chef of the day makes their meal.
