Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away, and Christmas is following quickly behind it! Celebrating the holidays means gathering with family for treasured traditions, none of which are more well-loved than baking together. If you’re a master baker known for your festive treats but feel limited by a lackluster kitchen, it might be time to consider a remodel.
You can make lots of big and small changes to equip your kitchen for creating holiday treats. Need a little design inspiration? Read the list below of our favorite baking-friendly kitchen upgrades and additions!
Easy access to tools, equipment, and ingredients is always a good idea when your hands are covered with sticky cookie dough! Luckily, we have the perfect solution: open shelving. There’s a reason open shelving has become a popular trend. Not only do they make cooking a little less chaotic, but they add beautiful display space to your kitchen. What’s not to like?
Cabinetry design has come a long way in even the last ten years. There are countless options available for getting your kitchen organized. From upright storage for baking sheets to orderly spice drawers, you can easily create a more functional kitchen design.
Dedicated Prep Space
Most baking requires a lot of prep space and specific tools. If you have the room, it’s a smart idea to set up a dedicated area for your supplies to call home. This approach is especially helpful if you frequently use a heavy-duty mixer, such as a KitchenAid, when you bake.
Baker’s often own large cookbook collections, so why not put them on display? Books are a classic and colorful decor element. Plus, it’s nice having them at arm’s reach when you’re searching for culinary inspiration!
Seating and Stepstools
Last but not least, make space for friends and family to bake with you. There are so many fun ways to cater to cooking with the people you love, whether it’s island seating, built-in corner booths, or hidden stools.
