If you are a homeowner who hosts family and friends for the holidays, your kitchen is one of the most important spaces in your home. You need counter space for preparation, a place for guests to hang out during cooking, and somewhere to hold all of the food once meals are finished cooking. Now that Thanksgiving is over and other holidays are just around the corner, you can reflect on ways you may need to change your kitchen to create more space for these events. Here are a few ways to do so:
- Hang pots and pans: Installing hooks for hanging pots and pans creates more cabinet and drawer space for other items that you would normally use counter space for. Hanging your pots and pans also adds style to your kitchen with a new look!
- Add an island: While you may be out of space for extra countertops along the walls, you can add another food prep station, designated serving space and extra storage by adding an island to your kitchen. A kitchen island can also become a hangout hub and even an eating nook with added bar stools, keeping guests out of the cooking area. Our experts can help you remodel your countertops with an added island for a beautiful, uniform look.
- Utilize your backsplash: Create additional space on your countertops by using your backsplash for storage. Install hooks for hanging baskets or shelving for items you use most frequently like spices, oils and utensils. If you don’t have a backsplash, now is the time to get one! Our specialists can help you pick the perfect backsplash to fit your kitchen’s style.
- Upgrade appliances: If you find that you’re having to frequently rearrange items in your fridge to make room for others or have to bake things one at a time, upgrading your appliances to have more inside storage will save you from stress throughout the holidays!
