Kitchen Design: The Command Center
Winter is finally melting away in Silver Spring, Maryland, and homeowners are gearing up for the changing season. Aside from the various outdoor living projects you might have planned, now is a good time for the interior remodel you’ve always wanted. Learn more about the kitchen command center, and discover how you can incorporate this trend into your Silver Spring home.
The Kitchen Command Center
The kitchen command center is an elegant, functional solution for the modern-day family. Between soccer practice, homework, and late-night meetings, families must maintain at least one organized space to ensure that every member is on schedule. That designated space is now known as the kitchen command center, but it’s important that it’s well-designed.
A Functional Design
The functional purpose of the kitchen command center is to establish an area to meet the family’s scheduling needs. While each center is different, most incorporate open and closed storage as well as other organizational tools. In most cases, closed storage is recommended so bills, papers, and homework are hidden from plain sight and do not create clutter. Open storage allows for baskets (both functional and decorative) and space for a chalkboard or calendar. Depending on the size of your kitchen, your command center can allow for one small chair or a long bench. Thoughtful design allows the chair or bench to slide underneath the desk portion of the center to create more space.
All About the Details
The command center often serves as a charging station for families and their many devices. It’s important that there are adequate electrical outlets as well as USB ports and plugs to increase the functionality of the center. With the Dura Supreme Charging Power Station, families can discreetly charge their tablets, e-readers, and smartphones within the closed storage cabinets. The extra cabinetry that the command center creates allows for more storage space in your entire kitchen! You could even designate one drawer for each member of the family to increase organization and decrease clutter.
