3 Practical Kitchen Remodeling Tips for Families, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

When you have kids, it often takes some smart remodeling to make your home more child-friendly. One of the areas that can benefit the most from a change is the kitchen. Here are three ideas on how to transform the space so your kids will be comfortable there too. 

3 Kid-Friendly Kitchen Remodeling Tips

1. Choose an Open Floor Plan

To make the kitchen a more inclusive space, knock down a wall to open it up. Without the extra barrier, you’ll be able to keep an eye on the children even when they’re in the living room. That free space also promotes a feeling of togetherness because everyone will be within reach. 

2. Insert an Island

remodelingAn island does more than provide extra surface space for chopping and slicing. It also provides a casual seating option for kids to have a snack or do their homework while you prepare a meal. The lower cabinets also provide storage options within reach of children, letting them be part of the kitchen culture. 

3. Add a Pantry

A scattershot of shelves and cabinets can be confusing to young kids. Building a walk-in pantry creates a simple space where all dry goods live. With that central system in place, you can start giving the kids more responsibilities like retrieving ingredients before a meal, allowing them to be part of the kitchen action.
