14 Apr Design Concepts for a Grand Kitchen
Although a small kitchen faces obstacles regarding size, an expansive kitchen can have its own set of challenges. When it comes to designing the layout for a larger kitchen space, having too much room can actually result in inefficiency. To increase productivity in a grand kitchen remodel, be sure that the central part of the layout includes an efficient and safe work-zone configuration. Then, if there is available space on a spare wall outside of this main zone, you can consider adding a customized element.
Custom Coffee Bar
If you have a morning routine and you love coffee, an espresso coffee bar may be the perfect addition to a larger kitchen. Creating a designated area for coffee preparation will eliminate those appliances and accessories from your main area. If you’re planning to splurge on a built-in espresso maker, you can incorporate a separate, streamlined cabinet hutch to house it in.
Whether you host large parties or have casual wine nights, utilizing your extra wall for bar cabinetry might be a great use of space. Appliances such as wine fridges or beer taps can be built directly into your custom cabinetry. Adding a small sink for quick cleanup and cabinets with glass doors to display specialty glasses and cocktail mixers are also great options for a customized bar area.
If the kitchen is the main gathering spot in your home, you may benefit from utilizing a spare wall as a multi-functional space. A reference library for your cookbooks can double-up as a charging station and desk. If you have an extra-long perimeter wall, extend the base cabinetry and countertop farther to create the perfect kitchen office configuration. Include custom elements to make this area as productive as possible.
From a decorative hutch to entertainment must-haves, a spacious kitchen can take on many extra customized additions. If your kitchen footprint allows for it, consider what custom concepts will best enhance your life and your kitchen. For help designing your grand kitchen, contact us.
