Family Friendly Kitchen Remodel Guide

When deciding on a kitchen remodel, it is important to consider factors that could change overtime such as your family growing. You should careful consideration choosing the right design, layout, and maximising the functionality your kitchen space. In this blog, we will share some tips and ideas on how you can achieve a family-friendly kitchen. 

Consider an open kitchen layout 

Embarking on a kitchen remodel process requires more than just upgrading the aesthetics, it also involves improving the functionality and efficiency of your available space. An open kitchen creates warmth and promotes a sense of togetherness inside your home. This layout also provides a smooth kitchen workflow while allowing you to have better communication and interaction within your family.

Create more storage 

A well-designed kitchen cabinetry layout allows you to find a place for everything. This allows you and your family access the kitchen space individually. For those with limited space, installing a roll-out pantry or sliding shelves can help you maximise and organise your kitchen. 

At Direct Kitchens, we provide quality custom kitchen cabinets for our clients tailored to their specific needs and space requirements. 

Child-friendly surfaces  

With growing family numbers and budding young chefs eager to use your kitchen, consider using durable and easy-to-clean materials for countertops and flooring, as spills and messes are almost guaranteed when kids are involved. Our experienced kitchen designers can guide you through the materials best suited to you current and future family needs.

Adaptable spaces 

In a well-planned kitchen renovation, the changing functionality of your kitchen over time should be considered. Create spaces that can be adapted for young children in highchairs, then teens looking for somewhere to do their homework or friends coming over for wine or dinner. Flexibility and simple changes can make all the difference to your kitchen’s longevity.
