You’re thinking of renovating your outdated kitchen anyway, right? So why not make it more worth your while than you ever thought? A kitchen is so much more than just a place to cook and eat – and repeatedly clean afterward. Break away from the cycle by incorporating unique kitchen design ideas that reflect your hobbies, interests, and lifestyle. Give your kitchen its due for being the center of your household by transforming it in a way that will make it stand out while bringing your family and friends together.
6 Unique Kitchen Design Ideas
As you are planning your kitchen renovation, think about the people who live in your household. What do they like to do with their spare time? Are they constantly on-the-go? Is someone in grade school or in college? Do the adults use the kitchen as a home office? Does someone love to cook?
Consider these unique kitchen design ideas that will transform it into a more efficient, fun, useful, and beautiful space.
1. Add a bar.
We know. Most people think of a bar as something that goes into the basement kitchen or a man cave. But there’s no reason not to add a bar in your main kitchen, especially if you enjoy entertaining.
2. Incorporate office space.
Consider purchasing a table that has the outlets and storage space for home computers and other technological devices. A kitchen island is also an ideal area for computer and phone storage when you have it designed with these needs in mind.
3. Construct a spice kitchen.
If you have the space and time and your budget allows for it, consider breaking out some walls or expanding your current kitchen to add a spice kitchen. A spice kitchen can keep your main kitchen cleaner, keep odors contained, and provide you with additional storage space for spices and other items. The cook in your family will love it.
4. Including a gaming table.
You know you play those poker games and online games at the kitchen table anyway. Why not include add a gaming table or create a kitchen table that doubles as a poker table?
5. Break out the sliding door to create an indoor-outdoor sunroom.
When you live in Arizona, sometimes you want to take in the sun, and other times, you need to crank up the air conditioner. An indoor-outdoor deck or sunroom will allow you to take in the beauty of the outdoors right from your kitchen, but you will be able to shut the windows or open them up as needed.
6. Transform a corner of the kitchen with furniture – real furniture.
If it’s not feasible in your case, you don’t have to go all out with a sunroom to have a comfortable place to sit. Purchase comfy chairs or couches and a little coffee table where you can chat inside the kitchen. Just make sure you purchase furniture made of suitable material so that you can clean away any food residue, stains, or odors.
