A large kitchen can be a dream come true for many homeowners, but it has its design challenges too. Some homeowners can be overwhelmed by a large kitchen and may not be sure how to make use of it. If you’re having problems deciding what to do, here are some big kitchen design ideas to review.

Use Space Efficiently

If you or someone else in your family loves to cook, then a gourmet kitchen may be what you envision for your kitchen space. However, when you’re prepping meals and need to move between the counter and refrigerator to retrieve ingredients, having a large area to cover can be exhausting. Instead of going to the kitchen to retrieve what you need every time, reduce the space by placing an island in the kitchen.

Just over 75% of all kitchens in a recent survey of over 616,300 kitchens had an island. An island can serve as a food prep station by adding a sink, or you can install a stove top to cook on the island. Also, with an overlapping countertop, you can use an island as a place for your family to eat breakfast or lunch.

Define Room with Peninsula

You can break up the space of a big kitchen by installing a peninsula. Whether it is an L-shaped or U-shaped peninsula, it will provide more storage space by installing cabinets under the countertop, it can serve as an eating area, and it can help make efficient use of the space by having a prep area closer to the sink, stove, and refrigerator.

An efficient kitchen design allows you to move from the refrigerator to the sink to the stove in a just a few steps. The most efficient design is the work triangle, which can be created by installing a peninsula or an island in a large kitchen. The triangle allows you to move from one area in the kitchen to another when prepping and preparing meals in the most efficient manner possible.

Eat-In Kitchen

Approximately 80% of home buyers want a house with an eat-in kitchen, so if you have a big kitchen space, you should have plenty of room for a dining area. An eat-in kitchen is for eating breakfast, lunch, or quick meals. The dining room can then be reserved for more formal meals with family and friends.
