Hospitality in Country Kitchen Designs

By Karin Mangan

One important element of country kitchen designs is their compatibility with serving an entire set of welcoming guests. While the visual elements of your country kitchen are important, the functional elements of your kitchen should contribute to serving your family and guests nutritious enjoyable meals. In fact, the core of a country kitchen should be its culinary elements which contribute to an improvement of the visual elements, including accessible cooking spaces, friendly kitchen tables and an inviting, social space for an entire set of guests.

When guests walk into a modern country kitchen, the space should immediately be inviting, opening up their hearts, minds and stomachs to a wonderful, communal meal. While the appliances, spaces and style elements should add to the overall aesthetic, they should also provide an inspired space which makes eating more fun and inviting. Kitchens are, after all, designed to provide a communal forum to enjoy family meals. Working with your family or household members to communally plan your new space can ensure everyone's culinary preferences are met. With a communal experience, you can get even more out of your kitchen space from the very beginning, adding more usability to the space.

Looking at modern, open country kitchens today you see socially friendly island spaces with bar stools, large kitchen cooking surfaces and an inviting space complete with top quality lighting elements. For large meals you'll want to open up your cooking space with an open range hood, large oven and warming drawer to provide a better way to integrate complete designs. When configuring your new custom country kitchen design, think about how much space you might require to serve complete dinner parties, including large events. You'll want both a main kitchen table as well as overflow space, along with an optional outdoor dining and service area.
