How to Make Kitchen Remodeling Designs Kid-Friendly, Rochester, New York

As you prepare for your kitchen remodeling project, redesign the space with your children in mind. From easy upkeep to quick cooking solutions, there are a variety of features you can include to make the space more kid-friendly. Here are a handful of great ideas from professional kitchen designers. 

4 Kitchen Remodeling Tips for Parents

1. Open the Floor Plan 

One of the downsides to having separate kitchen and living areas is that you miss out on family time while cooking and cleaning. Redesign the floor plan so that the entire space flows together. This will also promote ventilation in the kitchen and make your home look larger. 

2. Choose Stain Resistant Materials

Cork flooring has a soft surface that reduces the likelihood of slips and falls. It is also naturally antimicrobial, which keeps kids healthy. 

3. Install a Snack Bar & Pantry

Include an island in your kitchen where your kids can sit and eat snacks or do homework after school while you prepare dinner. Have a custom pantry installed that provides your kids with easy access to fruits, trail mix, granola bars, and other healthy foods. 

4. Get a Convection Microwave

If you have children, then you know your microwave gets plenty of use for meals on the go. When you invest in a convection microwave, you’ll enjoy the same conveniences as a traditional model, except your food will brown gorgeously, cook evenly, and taste better.
