Mealtime can be a busy time when you have children, and the kitchen usually becomes a family meeting place. Here's a kitchen that brings order to busy family life, with lots of space to work and a light, airy environment that's truly a joy to live in.
Talk about well thought-out! This kitchen literally has a zone for everything: meal planning, food preparation, cooking, eating, sink and storage/display. These zones are critical, since you may not be cooking gourmet meals every day; sometimes you need to cook a variety of simple meals, and lots of them. Each zone helps you avoid crossing the kitchen excessively, wasting time searching for what you need, and cluttering counter space.
Check out conveniences like the Under Cabinet Knife Rack (for extra safety with kids nearby) and a Spice Tray Insert (also great for storing baby food jars or children's snacks!). The attached eating counter adds convenience: kids can do homework while parents make dinner; guests can relax there and create conversation. And the spacious interior is essential when the whole family decides to congregate in the kitchen!
This design also lends itself well to entertaining. The wet bar and snack area have a built-in wine rack, Wire Stemware Rack and glass-door wall cabinets for your stein collection. "Crown molding also dresses up the cabinetry," adds Merillat's Interior Designer. The overall clean, contemporary style has a West Coast influence with a twist of tradition. All in all, a beautiful room with exceptional family-friendly convenience.
- Under Cabinet Knife Rack - Avoid injury while reaching in a knife drawer, plus saves space! This Knife Rack attaches under cabinet and pulls down and forward. Helps keep knives out of kids’ reach, too!
- Spice Tray Insert - If you prefer your spices in a drawer rather than above the counter, this insert organizes them easily so you can grab the spice you need in a flash. (Also great for holding baby food jars or children’s snacks!)
- Rollout Trays - Perfect for your largest pots and pans. No more crouching on hands and knees to find mixing bowls and soup pots.
