As the leaves fall off the trees, Thanksgiving is almost here! Thanksgiving this year might look a little different as years past, but hopefully we can all find things to be thankful for even during this tough year. Whether you’re enjoying your Thanksgiving virtually with friends or in person with family, you can still have the traditional meal.

Do you plan on hosting a Thanksgiving meal? Are you the designated host every year for Thanksgiving? If so, you probably have many opinions on how your kitchen functions for this event. There are things to consider when buying or remodeling your home to make it ideal for entertaining. Here are a few tips to look for or do to utilize the space for hosting:

Kitchen Island- If the kitchen is big enough, a kitchen island can be helpful with extra space. It can allow you more countertop space, cabinet space, or even added accessories like an ice maker or sink. A moveable island can also be beneficial so you can move it out of the way if needed.

Countertop Space- This is a must for anyone cooking for a group of people or hosting for a holiday. You need counterspace for all the bowls, mixers, pans, etc that cooking/baking entails. You want ample countertop space! If in your current home most of it is covered by appliances, put away what you don’t need before hosting an event. It will look better and leave extra countertop space for what you do need.

Storage Space- Cabinet space is so important in a home! You need space for your everyday place settings, your fine China place settings, your kitchen appliances, silverware, and food if there is not a pantry.

Pantry- It’s often a toss up if a home will have a dedicated panty. If you’re entertaining often, a panty can be very helpful. This will leave more space in your actual kitchen and you can tuck items away in your pantry that you don’t want seen. You can store food, appliances, and possibly cleaning supplies.

Double Oven- If you host big events often or are cooking multiple things at once frequently, then a double oven might be a must. However, if you only host Thanksgiving or an event a couple times a year it most likely isn’t a need for you.

These are all things to consider if you’re regularly entertaining people at your home. If you’re thinking about searching for a home that fits this criteria, I’d love to be your REALTOR®. Contact me if you need any help or have any questions. Also, remember Thanksgiving is about being thankful. What are you thankful for? I know I’m thankful for my husband, family, friends, health, home, and many other things. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and stay safe! Happy almost Thanksgiving!
