Kid Friendly Kitchen Remodel Ideas

June 15, 2017

The kitchen is without a doubt one of the most utilized rooms in the home for families with small children. Kitchens are a place where we prep, cook, socialize, teach, learn, and simply enjoy life together. When your family includes little kids, there are some adjustments you can make to your kitchen to make life a little bit easier. Here are some renovation, organization, and safety ideas for your kitchen.

Kid Friendly Kitchen Remodel Ideas

Renovation Ideas

If you are in the market to renovate your kitchen, or plan to renovate in the near future, there are some things you can do to make your kitchen more kid friendly. One of the biggest frustrations for parents of little ones is prep and cook time. Kids want to be with us at all times, and want their parents attention. One thing that can make this prep and cooking time easier is having a bar attached to your kitchen’s island or peninsula. Having a place for the kids to sit and work on homework, play with playdough, or help with food prep can be a lifesaver. And since the bar is right in your working space, you can keep an eye on the kids while you get work done.

Another kitchen renovation idea which is popular for families with little kids is an eat-in kitchen. Adding space for a small table in the kitchen provides a great place for families to eat meals together, without all the fuss of a fancy dining room.

Simple Updates

In addition to major kitchen renovations, there are also some simple things you can do to make it more kid friendly. Organizing your kitchen cabinets in a way that your kids can get to the items they want can make your life easier, and your kids feel more independent. Having a snack drawer with portion controlled healthy snacks available to your kids will make them feel independent and like they get to make decisions for themselves. Likewise, having a drawer with some toys for them if you spend a considerable amount of time prepping and cooking in the kitchen can give them something to do while you get work done.

Another great addition to your kitchen would be a safety stool that your child can use to be at counter level with you while you work. These stools are designed to prevent falls, so your child can be on your level without the risk of getting hurt.

Safety Tips

Safety is of utmost importance in the kitchen. If you are making changes to your kitchen because you have small children, there are a few things to take into consideration. First and foremost, securing all cabinets and doors that contain unsafe things such as cleaning supplies is a must. Similarly, using electrical outlet safety plugs in the kitchen is essential.

Another thing to consider if you are renovating or replacing kitchen appliances is to look for a stove that has the controls along the back, not on the front, where little hands can reach. Lastly, If you are reorganizing your cabinets, store breakables and cleaning supplies high where little ones can’t reach them.

For many parents the kitchen can become a place of stress and frustration, but by carefully planning out a renovation or reorganization with children in mind you can help prevent that frustration.
