Want to elevate your kitchen? Like to make it a more interesting space? You can do that. You might even turn it into an irresistible gathering spot for family and friends. Consider what activities and social interaction you could encourage in your modern kitchen beyond food prep. Then, go for it. Think big, add some great seating and practical storage pieces and then sit back and enjoy a more functional and beautiful place for living every single day of the week.
One of the most effective ways to encourage more family participation in the kitchen is to add a breakfast nook (definitely not just for morning meals though.) See our recent post on banquettes and benches. As seen above breakfast nooks are for tiny spaces as well as spacious kitchens.
Of course, a breakfast bar is for eating, but also makes a great place to do homework or entertain friends. The room above seems to be an exceedingly pleasant gathering spot.
The kitchen and dining area below is light, airy and offers lots of room for living from morning to night--creating a beautiful beating heart of a modern home. Wonder what’s in that sleek sideboard. Could it be used to store table linens, serving pieces or games and toys for the kids?
The Odin Sideboard with White Lacquered Body and colorful drawers and doors. We think this is a perfect piece for a multi-use or eat-in kitchen. What a gorgeous modern persona is on display here!
For more narrow spaces is the Nakula Tall Sideboard in Oak & White, You’ll find lots of out of sight storage in the tall Nakula.
What do you think? Do you have enough room to make your modern kitchen into a space you can enjoy dawn to dusk and beyond. You can make your kitchen much more than just a place to eat and run. We would love to help you turn your kitchen into the beautiful heart of your home. See you soon.
