Tweens and Teens in The Kitchen

1)  Tweens and teens are independent, busy, and bringing their friends home. We’ve put together some tips for a kitchen redesign with kids in mind.

2)  To make life easier in the main kitchen, locate your pantry out of the flow of traffic, and store quick-fix meals towards the front to avoid congestion.

3)  A side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water in the door is convenient. Be sure to keep drinking cups next to the fridge.

4)  Install a warming drawer in your base cabinets to keep meals ready for kids eating in shifts.

5)  Consider installing a second, smaller kitchen in a family or recreation room. (You can use it as a wet bar later or as a prep kitchen for those big holiday dinners with the grandkids much later.) This kitchen cabinet design could have

•  a sink
•  a small refrigerator
•  a microwave
•  a pizza oven
•  a small dishwasher
•  an ice maker
•  pantry space for quick-fix meals and snacks.
