Ideas for a child friendly kitchen

15 April 2014
When kids come along you spend a lot more time in the kitchen, and wherever you are, they are. Make it easier to share by giving them a little space and adding ways for them to help. Because a child friendly kitchen is a happy kitchen.

A double-sided central island, made up of different units, means that there’s lots of room for everyone to be together, but not on top of each other.

A step up

Every kitchen needs a step stool to reach those things that are too high up - like the sink when you’re only five years old.

Pass the rice

Open storage means you can quickly see what you’re looking for. A floor-standing unit means the kids can reach things kept at a safe height, making it extra easy for them to help out when you’re cooking - just remember to fix it to the wall for extra safety.
