If you’ve got a basement you don’t use much, you might be wondering what the point of adding a kitchen is. The thing is, adding a kitchen might actually make your basement get more use! Let’s take a look at four reasons you should have a kitchen in your basement.
Most people have overnight guests once in a while. It could be family coming to stay for the holidays or a friend from out of town. No matter the situation, having a kitchen space for them benefits everyone. They can stay in a basement bedroom and get a snack from the basement kitchen without waking anyone up at night. All in all, it know adds to the comfort of an overnight stay to have your own kitchen space. It feels less like you’re trying to fit yourself into someone else’s space. Give your guests the benefit of having their own kitchen space.
Now, if you’ve got some more long-term guests, such as retired parents or other family, this is great for them as well. There are all kinds of circumstances that can bring family to live with us. No matter what those are for you, let’s consider how having their own kitchen space will benefit everyone in the house.
Giving live-in family their own kitchen space will allow them to store their own food. Not only is this good for people who like to keep things separate, it also helps with space. Trying to fit groceries for a large household into one fridge can be difficult. This is also true for cupboards. With Discount Kitchens’ spacious and efficient cabinets and drawers, your family will be able to store as much as they need.
Having a basement kitchen in this case will also help with schedule differences. If your live-in family likes to eat dinner after you’ve already gone to bed, this is ideal. Cooking in their own kitchen downstairs should be far enough away to keep from disturbing your sleep. This goes, just the same, for when one of you wakes up and eats breakfast before the other.
The Perfect TV Room
Are you looking for that perfect TV room? Having a kitchen in your basement TV room is just what you need to complete the experience. No more going upstairs to the kitchen and missing part of a movie – or worse, everyone having to pause it and wait – while you make popcorn. Take advantage of having all of your snacks near the TV, inviting over friends to enjoy new releases or old favorites alike.
High Quality Entertaining
Whether you involve the TV or not, basements are fantastic places to host parties. This is doubly true if you’ve got it furnished with a kitchen. Serve drinks and snacks right from the bar. Retrieve a refrigerated dessert without having to go all the way upstairs. Get ice right from the freezer. The partying possibilities multiply when you add a kitchen space to the mix.
