Stylish, child-friendly designer kitchen ideas

If you’ve got young children, you may have put off getting your dream designer kitchen until they’re a little older. The last thing you want to worry about is your kitchen dream getting tatty, stained and generally being an unfriendly environment for your children and any little guests. But having a stylish, designer kitchen doesn’t have to conflict with family life. Style, comfort, safety and convenience can work hand in hand with a kitchen from Kitchen Design Centre. There are many ways we can help you to design your perfect family-friendly kitchen without you having to compromise on chic style. Today on the blog we’ll be exploring just a few child-friendly kitchen ideas…

Go open plan

We all know that being a parent involves a lot of multi-tasking – you need to cook for the children, get on with the household chores and watch over them all at the same time. Our open plan design kitchens actually make this easier for busy families. Why not incorporate some living space at the far end of your kitchen with sofas, board games and perhaps a television? This way you can get on with food preparations and any day-to-day chores knowing that your children are safe, well and happy.

Choose gloss

Gloss is an ideal material to choose if you’re looking for a sleek and stylish kitchen that remains clean and looks good, even if your children do to make the odd mess! They’re low maintenance and can be cleaned with just a cloth and water, meaning you can restore a dirty kitchen back to its original state in no time. When choosing the colour of your gloss kitchen, we’d actually recommended something light and bright as it’s easier to maintain than darker gloss colours, which tend to show up fingerprints and marks more easily. We all know children like getting their hands on everything – so if you’re not keen on waist height handprints and marks along your kitchen island, opt for white or light gloss!

The benefits of laminate

Laminate worktops are another great option for families with young children. They’ve got the benefit of having a non-porous surface, which means a dry cloth or sponge gets rid of smaller stains, while more stubborn marks can be removed with washing-up liquid.

Think safety

We all know children love to play with gadgets and that anything that looks a little bit dangerous can be a bit of an enigma to little ones, so choosing the right appliances for your new kitchen is also really important. When choosing your hob, opt for an induction hob. Its quick cooling features, and ability to heat only the area of the hob that’s been used for cooking, ensures there’s no burnt fingers if your children decide to get inquisitive! Of course, induction hobs are cheaper to run too, which is always a plus for families.
