3 Reasons Why You Should Consider a Kitchen Bump Out
A kitchen’s purpose has evolved over time – changing from a place with the singular purpose of preparing meals to how it is regarded today: as the true hub of a home, where not only is food prepared, but families gather for meals, entertain family and friends, and enjoy spending time together over a leisurely cup of coffee.
If you share this updated vision for your kitchen, and realize that your current layout doesn’t easily allow for these activities, perhaps it’s time to consider a kitchen bump out – with a kitchen remodeling contractor such as Moss Building & Design, which has the experience and design build expertise to create the perfect home remodel to suit your family and its needs. Some possible reasons for you to consider a kitchen bump out might include the following:
Better Entertaining Options with a Kitchen Bump Out
Some older homes were built with many rooms to designate the purpose behind each, such as the dining room and kitchen. Today, many homeowners choose to remodel their home to create more open concept layouts, which not only make a home feel larger, but creates a sense of togetherness. A kitchen bump out in your home addition plan would also allow for better entertaining options – think about it: having room to move around, more interesting seating options, and a sense of flow from room to room creates a fun atmosphere where all your guests are connected and not cut off from one another.
Kitchen Bump Outs Provide More Attractive Family Meal Settings
Adding a bump out to your kitchen allows for the old adage, “too many cooks in the kitchen”, to feel like a more positive situation! More counter space for meal prep and cooking, more room for a long kitchen island for casual family meals, and increased room for an eat-in area creates a more attractive family meal setting. More elbow room is especially important as families grow and children get older! A good home addition contractor can help you design a space that works as your family changes over time.
A Kitchen Bump Out Allows For Families to Be Together More Easily
Have you spent years cooking in the kitchen, serving dishes and cleaning up and running back and forth…and realize after the fact that you’ve spent your evening not being with your family? Having a new bumped out kitchen solves this issue beautifully – it allows for the cook(s) and cleaner(s) to all essentially be in the same room, together, all the time. Not only does this encourage more conversation, and keep your family on the same page, it reminds everyone that helping with meals can and should be a group effort. Many hands make light work, after all!
