Five Trending Family-Friendly Designs for Your Remodeled Kitchen

Organization Family Friendly

In the beginning—and end—of every day, does your family end up in the kitchen?

We eat a quick breakfast together around the kitchen island. The family cooks dinner while talking about our days. And we remind our kids (for the sixth time) to move their book bags and coats from the kitchen floor to the closet.

Life happens in the kitchen.

When you’re ready to begin the process of updating (and falling in love) with your kitchen space, we’re here to help make sure your kitchen is designed with family-friendly modifications in mind.

At American Wood Reface, we have a dedicated team of kitchen design experts. This team of specialists works with you in the comfort of your own home to assist you in selection and design.

With them, you are able to view styles and colors with existing lighting, color schemes, and décor—the ideal conditions for making design choices for your family.

Here are our top five family-friendly designs elements:

Family Layout: Looking for a layout that’s good for your entire family? Try adding a kitchen island—the perfect place to gather, cook or enjoy meals together.

Spill-proof services: You think people cry over spilled milk? Try red food coloring on your new white countertops. Whether you have a toddler or a teenager at home, having surfaces in your kitchen that can easily be cleaned, like quartz countertops, is a must.

Round edges: And while we’re talking countertops, with family-friendly installs, we recommend rounding the edges of your countertop surfaces. So, whether heads or bellies bump into them—it won’t hurt.

Touch-free faucets: Children can struggle with turning faucets on and may accidentally turn on the hot water. Touch-free faucets are more affordable than you might guess and can be pre-set to ensure the safest start temperature for your family.

Family-friendly storage: As parents, we’re all about teaching independence. Does your child have easy access to their dishes and snacks? With functional pullout, storage drawers, all of their items can be in one place—for simple, day-to-day use!
