Get Started on Your Party Ready Kitchen
If you hosted Thanksgiving last year and this year you’re the Christmas host, now is the time to plan and start your kitchen remodel. Whether you want better space so you can cook the ham and all the sides or you want a great island to serve from, here are some great ideas to talk to your kitchen remodeling company about as you get started.
Cooking and Baking
Everyone has their own preference of gas or electric. That’s always a good starting point when it comes to choosing your stovetop and oven. From there, you’ll want to decide if you want a separate cooktop or a stove. If you’re a big baker, you may want a double oven and warming drawer. Be sure to look at the features that are important to you. Some of these may include rapid preheat, convection cooking and bread proofing.
If you’re a big entertainer all year round, you may want a beverage station. That could include a separate bar sink, ice maker and wine and beer fridge. Having the right type of space to store special glasses and drink mixers is also a plus. Planning for what you have or want is better than making what you have fit after your kitchen remodel is complete.
Do you like a buffet style meal? Consider including a large bar space. Make sure you include enough outlets for warming trays if that’s something you use. If you’re more of a family style server with the food on the table, you’ll want space around the stove to move what you’ve prepared into serving dishes and then into the kitchen.
The Right Space
If you and your spouse or kids prepare meals together, make sure you have the right type of space for the type of cooks you are. Plan for enough meal prep areas for your family. If you need more than one sink or dishwasher, talk to your kitchen remodeling company so they include everything in their early plans.
