GREAT IDEAS FOR INCORPORATING CHILDREN IN THE KITCHEN

PULL-OUT DRAWERS AT CHILD HEIGHT

This helps a child to easily access things like dishes and utensils. I love the organizing cubes inside.

BUILT-IN STUDY

 This is a fabulous idea! It can be used for younger and older children alike- a coloring station or homework center keeps the family on a routine.

LARGE SEATING AREA

Yes!! The large seating area for congregation and meals makes the kitchen more family friendly and inviting. Also great for games and fun and leaves plenty of space for friends and guests!

 SNACK STATION/ BUILT-IN BASKET DRAWERS

These basket drawers are visually appealing and offer easy access to healthy fruits and veggies. They also provide a perfect storage solution. Another consideration is a snack station in a lower cabinet.

DECORATE WITH FUN COLORS/ DISPLAY CHILD ARTWORK

I really love this Euro kitchen- super modern and built for a family! If you are not quite that bold , or this isn't your style you can try simply displaying child artwork or school work. This can be done neatly and offers a sense of home to your kitchen.
