How to Build a Kitchen Perfect for Entertaining

It’s the holiday season and for most of us we celebrate with family and food, making the kitchen the focal point this time of year. If you are building or remodeling a kitchen, you want to ensure it suits your entertaining needs. David James, owner of Create and Construct Scottsdale, is sharing with us the most important things to consider when building or remodeling your kitchen.

Layout: If you’re the cook, you should consider having your range in the island or a place where you can face your guests while cooking.

Counter Space: Make sure you have sufficient space to prep your food with guests around or to display food for your guests to enjoy.

Seating: Include built in seating and standing space so that your guests are comfortable and feel included.

Lighting: Lighting sets the mood. Install dimmers so you can control the brightness and if possible consider windows for natural lighting.

Appliances: You should select appliances based on how and what foods you cook. Many times clients want double ovens, but there are ranges that offer built in double ovens which allow for more storage space in your kitchen.
