Ways to Make Your Kitchen Remodeling in New Orleans "Kid Friendly"

As contractors, we can complete your kitchen remodeling in New Orleans, giving you the kitchen you have always dreamed of. The kitchen is very often the heart of the home, especially for anyone who has a large family and likes to cook. Children require three meals a day plus potentially three snacks and dessert. This means that trips in and out of the kitchen could be happening every hour.


It is also a place for spending time together, working together and even doing homework. As such, the kitchen can be a place that is beautiful, comfortable and fully functional. If yours is not, it is time to speak with us about remodeling.


Kitchen remodeling in New Orleans: Tips for making your kitchen "kid friendly"


We understand that "kid friendly" can have a negative connotation. People tend to assume that if it is good for kids, it is not good for adults. This is not the case with our remodeling projects. We can create a space that is beautiful but also works well for the family. In fact, incorporating kid friendly ideas into a remodel typically makes life easier for mom and dad. Here are some ideas to consider:


#1. Lower snack drawers


Every time a child needs a snack, they are most likely to ask mom and dad for help. This is mainly because they cannot reach or are asking for permission. We can install deep lower drawers that one can fill with snacks, drinks, water bottles and other treats. This way, parents do not need to run to the kitchen every time someone needs a drink or snack.


#2. Install an easy water dispenser


Giving children the ability to get their own water saves parents time while also making it easier for children to remain hydrated. Imagine how much easier it can be for children to grab their own water after playing outside or when waking up at night. This is possible with careful placement during the remodel.


#3. Select the right materials


Certain cabinetry and counter materials are easier to clean than others. We can make recommendations regarding the durability and cleanliness of various materials when discussing the remodeling project. Making the right choice at this stage will reduce the risk for little hands causing stains or spills making permanent spots on the counter or cabinets. The ability to easily clean off marks is important with children.


#4. Touchless faucets are helpful


Prevent the spreading of germs by installing touchless faucets so that children can wash their hands without needing to touch the handle.


#5. Install modern safety features


There are certain safety features that we can incorporate into kitchens via the placement of objects, use of new appliances or even "hiding" things that are dangerous.
