Kitchens are no longer just for cooking and indulging. Today, more and more people entertain and host social gatherings in their kitchen, making it the social hub of the home. After all, we all love a good party in the kitchen, right?
So we’ve created a guide demonstrating how you can transform your kitchen into the perfect social space.
When you’re hosting a dinner party, movie night, or social gathering, it’s important that your kitchen is able to offer enough seating for your guests. After all, creating the perfect entertainment space is all about making your kitchen as comfortable and inviting as possible.
And, when it comes to incorporating seating into the design of your kitchen, there are lots of ways that you can create functional seating areas. From arm chairs, bar stools, and dining chairs, through to soft furnishings, benches, and even bean bags, creating accommodating seating areas will not only provide style and function to your space, it will also allow your guests to socialise in intimate and comfortable surroundings.
If you’re lucky enough to have a large, open plan kitchen space, you might want to consider incorporating a kitchen island into the design.
A kitchen island will not only provide the perfect entertaining space, it will also allow you to reap the benefits of a functional storage, food prep and socialising area. Of course, they also look great too!
If you enjoy hosting dinner parties, pre-drink gatherings, or even cosy nights in with your loved ones, you might want to consider kitting out your kitchen with the very latest entertainment systems.
This will not only add a new functional dimension to your space, but it will also allow you to create the perfect entertainment area that you and your guests will enjoy spending time in.
From surround sound music systems, and wall mountable TVs and projectors, through to game stations, chocolate fountains, and even slush and popcorn machines, there’s a whole host of exciting kitchen additions that you can incorporate.
Lighting can have a huge impact on the mood and ambience of a room, so it’s important that you take the time to get the positioning of your lighting just right.
When it comes to integrating lighting into your kitchen, you should think about incorporating different types of lights in different areas of the room. For example, spotlights look great under cabinets and if you have a kitchen bar, island, or dining area, you might want to think about creating a focal point using a high impact light feature.
