Holiday Entertaining is Easy in an Ecraft Kitchen

The holiday season is in full swing, which means it’s time to plan warm, fun-filled celebrations with those we love most. Whether that means a full-course holiday dinner, impromptu get-togethers, or cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with friends, your home — and your kitchen — will become the epicenter of your holiday festivities. 

The next time it’s your turn to host, make it easy on yourself by entertaining in style in a brand new, chef-quality, gourmet kitchen. Not only are Ecraft’s kitchens beautiful, they are also highly efficient work centers, designed to be used — a lot! Here are a few of our favorite kitchen features that you can take advantage of for your future holiday seasons.

Tips for Holiday Entertaining

Large Kitchen Islands: Perfect for serving large platters of holiday treats, or just for cozy breakfasts of leftover cakes and pies, a kitchen island has a million uses for the modern family. Encourage your family and friends to have a seat at the island to keep you company while you cook, and they might be inspired to lend a helping hand.

Lots of Storage: From generous cabinet space to your walk-in pantry, there’s a place for every dish and utensil, plus space for your holiday-themed ones, too. Lots of storage in the kitchen means a less cluttered countertop, so that you can move around quickly and easily to get things done.

New Appliances: Not chef status? That’s ok. With our modern appliances that have a setting for everything, you’ll still be able to whip up impressive dishes in no time. And if you leave something on the stove or in the oven for too long, your appliance will tell you!

Great Lighting: Whether it’s task lighting like pendants and under-cabinet lights for chopping and decorating, or lots of natural light to brighten up the space, Ecraft kitchens have it all. We recommend incorporating at least three lighting sources so that your kitchen can go from hard working to evening-ready in a second.

Open-Concept Design: Never again feel like you are “stuck cooking” while the party goes on around you. In an open-concept kitchen and living space, the person cooking is always the center of attention. When everyone can be together in the same space, the memories are that much sweeter.

Multi-Tasking Pantry: In open-concept design, especially if you love to entertain, consider adding a butler’s pantry or even a smaller second kitchen so that you can keep food prep and appliances out of sight when you have guests over. If that’s not an option, think about incorporating a large enough pantry that you can add a countertop to keep messes hidden away. Your parties and large meals will look effortless!
