Next in our TOP 10 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO BE YOUR OWN INTERIOR DESIGNER is… #8 – KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE YOUR KITCHEN A DREAM – to cook and to laugh. In our INTERIOR DESIGN CLASSES starting next week (woohoo!) we’ll be speaking with kitchen cabinetmaker extraordinaires to learn this know-how.
“Our kitchens … need to be the perfect blend of sociability and functionality.”
We all know about the “work triangle” and how it keeps the fridge, oven and sink/dishwasher in easy reach of each other. But the kitchen is about far more than cooking. It’s the centre of conversation and activity for the most meaningful rituals – starting the day strong, coming home from a busy day to unwind and welcoming loved ones into our homes and lives.
While I’m not about trends, I do love this one and that’s the growing popularity of the island bench. These are growing in grandeur, function and becoming a piece of furniture for the kitchen. We see them with storage built in, multi-functional as both a work-bench and a dining table, bench seats running down one side and topped off with feature pendants. They really are transforming the kitchen into a living and/or dining space and I LOVE IT!
So who knows how they like to cook? How many people typically join you in the kitchen while you’re whipping up some culinary delight and what do they do? My 4 y.o. LOVES washing dishes – hope that lasts! Do you use the kitchen as your semi-office – and what other multi-purpose tasks does it perform? ONLY YOU KNOW THESE ANSWERS! See you next week to unravel your home’s stories. Linda
