Install Multiple Ovens and Dishwashers
When there are a lot of mouths to feed, one lasagna is not always enough. Or maybe there is part of your family that likes sausage in its lasagna, and another that prefers to go vegetarian.
When this is the case, having dual ovens set can save you time and patience by allowing you to cook for your entire family at the same time.
Moreover, all of those dirty dishes can be a pain to navigate, so having one dishwasher dedicated to china and silverware and another designed for cookware and large trays can be a major benefit.
Keep the Traffic Flowing
Nothing is worse than having an artichoke dip on the beautiful quartz counter in the corner of the kitchen, but not being able to get anything else done because people are lined up to get their taste and blocking your path.
Therefore, one of the best ways to ensure that people do not bottleneck in your kitchen is to have a large island in the center. This allows people to access appetizers from multiple angles and find exits via multiple routes.
Get Creative with Storage Space
It is no secret that large families will require more storage space, so a large, deep pantry will be a must when stocking up on consumer staples.
In addition, you will want to take a top-down approach to maximizing your space. Kitchen cabinets should reach to the ceiling and where they do not, look for places where you can conveniently place hooks, allowing you to hang bulky pots and pans that would otherwise consume a lot of cabinet space.
For items such as bread, bananas, and chips, which typically sit on the counter, consider adding hangers to the reverse side of the pantry door.
Another benefit of that large island is that a ton of storage can be added underneath. This is an ideal location for items that take up a lot of space but may not get used with great frequency, perhaps blenders, food processors, or electric griddles.
Invest in Refrigerator SPace
Big meals lead to more leftovers and with so many hungry mouths under one roof, there are sure to be people snacking throughout the day. Make sure that those leftovers don’t have to be thrown out by investing in an industrial-size refrigerator.
