Do you see a kitchen re-model in your future? Here are a few things to keep in mind while designing a family-friendly, stylish kitchen. Embrace an open floor plan if it’s possible in your home. Incorporate a small seating or breakfast area where your family and guests can gather. Let’s be honest, that’s where everybody ends up assembling anyway! Expand your island to increase both your preparation space and your social circle-the kiddos can pull up barstools to get in on the fun. Creating a larger pantry area enables you to hide clutter and keep your countertops sparkling! Yep, I can definitely see that ‘new’ kitchen!
