Kitchens Designed to Host

July 3, 2023

The kitchen is the heart of the home. Regardless of size or presence of food, you can almost always find guests talking and laughing around the table (or island)! Designing a kitchen around its ability to double as a gathering space can take some of the pressure off entertaining. We love these kitchens designed to host a crowd!

Ample Island Seating

A well-designed island with barstools can provide plenty of additional seating while creating a relaxed atmosphere. For comfort, opt for upholstered stools with a supportive back. We love how these sleek islands and stools provide a functional gathering space without distracting from the design of the rest of the kitchen.

Bar Room

Whether you and your guests prefer a handcrafted cocktail or a perfectly chilled glass of wine, a separate bar room complete with a wine fridge really elevates an entertaining space.

Butler’s Pantry

Quickly prepare extra food and drinks. Store extra serving platters. Hide away the dirty dishes and glasses. A butler’s pantry is a multi-use space designed to make your life easier while hosting. Bonus points for additional appliances, like an extra dishwasher or wine fridge!

Outdoor Kitchens

With summer comes the opportunity to utilize outdoor spaces. Nobody likes to be cooped up in the kitchen on a sunny summer day. These outdoor kitchens are perfect for grilling out and enjoying the weather!
