When designing a kitchen for a growing family, limiting the traffic patterns is paramount!! Having a door to block free access for everyone who wishes to be underfoot , including the cat and the dogs, is essential to the cook and by extension the entire family!! A floor plan which can be blocked and with a door which locks is most desirable, preferably the door will have a window for observation purposes ,allowing the cook to decide if child squabble intervention is necessary. A sound proof door is usually most desirable for the least disruption of meal preparation
When designing a kitchen for a growing family, space considerations are paramount. Having room for everybody to move around is essential to the happiness of the cook, and by extension, the entire family. An open floor plan is most desirable, allowing for traffic in and out of the kitchen without disrupting meal preparation.
