What better way to bring the family closer together than by being in the comfort of your own home? Kitchens allow for socializing, family bonding, and food to keep you entertained.
Quality Time with the Family
One of the wonderful things about having a kitchen is that you can cook and eat together with your family. By cooking with your children you can teach them life-long skills to select and prepare healthy foods. This allows for the quality time that is sometimes hard to find during the week, bringing families closer together.
Homemade meals tend to be healthier than store bought and fast food meals. When children are involved in the preparation and cooking process, they tend to like the nutritious foods that they are learning to prepare. There is more sentimental value behind the food, leading to healthier choices as they grow.
Cabinets Prevents Accidents
When your children are more interactive in the kitchen, you want your kitchen to be as organized as possible. Smaller children tend to be curious and can pick up hazardous objects left out on surfaces and potentially harm themselves. Your kitchen design must focus on keeping them safe at all times. One way to keep them safe is by installing child safety locks on the cabinet doors and stove to prevent them from being hurt.
Teaches Organizational Skills
Cabinets can be used as a solution to store away objects so that they are not left out in the open. They can solve many other solutions and can be used as furniture in other rooms such as the living room, foyer, bedroom, hallway, or basement. Our professional staff can design solution ideas to store TVs, DVD’s, and entertainment areas; shoes and coats, toys, beauty products, wine, fine china and other display items.
Ideal child friendly kitchen cabinets will save space and help your children and you find what you’re looking for exactly when you need it. This will also help your children become confident in their organizational skills.
Organize your kitchen cabinets to create a child friendly kitchen by following these tips:
Child Safety for Top Kitchen Cabinet Shelves
Do your best to avoid putting heavy items on your top kitchen cabinet shelves. The best items to put on the top kitchen cabinet shelves are items that are lightweight and will be rarely used such as fine china. This will decrease the chances of accidents occurring in the kitchen and the breakage of fragile items. You can store seasonal candy for the children as a reward for being clean and safe cooks in the kitchen.
Child Safety for Middle Shelves
The middle shelves in your wall cabinets are the perfect heights for most children. Place your most frequently used dishes, cups and snacks in these cabinets. You should also store the most used cooking items in this section. Some frequently used cooking items are canned goods, flour, sugar and salt. This is the perfect height for children to easily lift items for cooking and dining.
Child Safety for Bottom Shelves
The bottom shelf of your wall cabinets are perfect area to devote to cooking tools that are not sharp. Tools such as measuring cups, spoons, oven mitts, aprons, tiny cutting board, and plastic spatulas are just some of the non-harmful items to be considered here.
