Home Trends – A Host’s Kitchen
One home trend that isn’t losing any steam with our clients is the shift towards host-friendly kitchens. These open concept minded updates are more than just superficial, they’re incredibly functional. They’re spaces filled with areas that do double-duty. For example, spacious islands go from food prep central to a relaxed buffet for serving guests in a matter of hours. Talk about entertaining with ease! Planning a kitchen tailored toward flexibility does require significant foresight, but we think it’s well worth the investment. Besides, worrying about the details is what you hire us for – we’ll sweat the specifics, you focus on envisioning your dream kitchen!
Below are a few of our favorite host-friendly kitchen details that our previous clients have selected…
An open concept kitchen allows everyone, hosts and guests, to wander in and out freely as needed. Everything in this dreamy kitchen is perfectly oriented towards that enormous bar/island!
This beautiful kitchen island is incredibly versatile! It functions as prep space, a breakfast nook, a buffet for entertaining, and a spot for guests to sit and mingle.
The open window bar in this home is a fun way to bridge the kitchen and dining room, while still maintaining a bit of separation between each space.
A stove top surrounded by ample counter space and an island like this is perfect for hosting large family holiday meals!
We love the flow in this great room. An evening with friends could be spent first with hors d’oeuvres at the counter island, dinner at the dining room table, and finish in the living room for drinks and dessert.
