The lines between home, work, and school are becoming increasingly blurred, and in many families, they have entirely disappeared. This social shift has resulted in some exciting developments in home design. For example, the kitchen has re-emerged as the true heart of the home. For many families, the kitchen must serve multiple functions. Listed below are a few practical ideas for building a multipurpose kitchen.
Don’t forget the storage you need for all of the various activities in the kitchen. There must be storage for work supplies near the table or island, tools, and appliances to keep them from cluttering up countertops, and storage for fun stuff for relaxing.
A Stove And Sink
Upgrade your stove and cooking appliances to include features such as a warming drawer, which lets you keep food warm while working or doing other things in the multipurpose room. Including various safety features would also be beneficial, as a multipurpose kitchen is more likely to have children in it. Whether the sink is part of the island or in another kitchen area, ensure you get the most out of it and make the most of your time. From pasta pot fillers to high-pressure glass cleaners, many cool sink accessories make prep and cleanup easier. Investing in a touch-sensor faucet allows younger children to use the kitchen sink without making a huge mess.
A Kitchen Island
If you have an island in your kitchen, you already have a multifunctional space. Islands typically include prep space, a sink and storage, and a place for people to sit, eat, or work. An island is frequently an excellent place for kids to do their homework. Make sure you’re making the best use of this space possible. Assign some surface space to non-cooking duties by designating a specific location for pencils and learning tools that must remain visible. To keep things tidy, design the island with a backsplash separating the sink from the eating and working areas.
