A Remodeling Contractor’s Guide to Kid-Friendly Kitchens

Add an Islandremodeling contractor

Islands make it much easier for parents to keep children in their sight as they cook. You can set them up in a highchair or stool with a quick snack or activity, so there’s never a worry about what’s happening in the other room. Additionally, islands are a perfect location for kids to work on their homework while you prepare dinner. As you cook, you’ll get to catch up on their day, and help with their studies. 

Invest in Quartz Counters

Messes and accidents come standard with children, so durable materials are a must. Quartz counters add beauty, and the solid surface will stand up to the kid test. It’s non-porous, so it’s easy to clean and stain resistant. It’s also more scratch resistant than other stone counters. 

Install Both High & Low Cabinets

Have your remodeling contractor create a shelving and cabinet system that keeps harmful items out of reach. You can also install some storage areas at kid level where you keep healthy snacks and plastic dishware. This way, kids have some agency and don’t have to ask an adult every time they’re hungry for a treat between meals.
