4 Kitchen Must Haves For Home Entertainers

Christmas is a time when home entertainers really rise to the fore.  From pre-Christmas gatherings to Christmas Day with the trimmings and the traditional Boxing Day barbie – when you love to cook the holidays are a great time to show your skills.

Our design team has compiled their top four kitchen must haves for home owners that like to entertain.


  • An Island Bench

An island bench is the perfect platform for home entertainers.  Use the island for food prep or for food serving and ensure you can still mingle with your guests throughout the process.  An island is also handy for ensuring additional seating space.


  • Clear Kitchen Zones

The best laid out kitchens ensure the food prep, serving and cleaning processes are seamless. Design your kitchen to have clear preparation, cooking and cleaning zones to minimise clutter and avoid stepping into each other’s way when cooking and cleaning.

  • Suitable Appliances

For home cooks and entertainers, having the right appliances is a must.  Go for two ovens to ensure you can entertain en masse, a warming drawer or fridge with a deli drawer.  An under-bench wine fridge is useful and appliances that are easy to clean such as pyrolytic ovens will also come in handy.

A second dishwasher perhaps in a butlers pantry is also a great investment for those who like to host large group gatherings.


  • Go Alfresco

Take your entertaining outside with an alfresco bench or servery. A great way to again ensure you can mingle with your guests while also accessing valuable seating space outside and an additional servery area.
