For the family that likes to spend time in the kitchen together, this kitchen remodel idea works great for that purpose. The first thing you need when designing the family kitchen is that you have to have a layout that is accessible. This way it is easy to direct the kids when you need them to help you make a meal. In addition to the kids needing to know their way around, so too do the grownups. I feel like I could walk into this kitchen and easily know where to go to find ingredients. The island is also a great place to prep.
