The Social Kitchen

With an atmosphere that feeds conversation as much as it does hungry appetites, the social kitchen aims to inspire connection through intimate seating areas and surfaces to prep and entertain; create and converse. It breaks the traditional work-triangle mold to offer flexibility in space flow and function, so you can move freely while sampling h’ordeuvres and sipping Chardonnay.

Chopping & Chatting Spot

Whether it is a breakfast bar counter, an island, workbench or table, guests need a space to gather and chat while you chop and cook. A good gathering space will become a entice conversation and get everyone near the action. The secret is not to have the space too crowded, so make sure adequate seats and counters are part of the design.

Eat-In Spaces

Built-in banquettes are finding their way back on the floor plans of social kitchen designers. These casual dining areas are focal points not only for the homeowner but for potential buyers, as well. They are places to congregate, work, entertain and catch up.

spacious

Spacious Design

You can create the look and feel of an open-concept kitchen, while maintaining social gathering spaces, by implementing half-walls, archways and flowing color so that your entertaining areas are connected and traffic flow is  unhampered, yet there is separation for social functionality.

viewable

Viewable Cabinates

When guests can see where your wine glasses live, they are more apt to help themselves and leave you to the cooking. Viewable cabinets don’t necessarily have to be clear glass, however, they can be tinted, opaque or frosted to give the elusion of privacy, while still inviting guests to help themselves.
