Wayland is a very special community. People choose to buy homes here specifically because it’s such a great place to raise children. The school system is excellent. There’s a lot of great outdoor recreation, and throughout the year, there are numerous community events and festivals that are designed for making great memories that last a lifetime.
In such a family-centered community, the expectation is that the homes will be family friendly as well. However, in some instances, home interiors haven’t kept pace with our changing lifestyles. Busy, active families can find the kitchens in some Wayland area homes to be a little undersized and in need of updating. Here’s a look at some of the most popular kitchen upgrades:
Serious Kitchens for Serious Cooks
Whether it’s lavish family meals, a community gathering, or hosting work colleagues, Wayland homeowners love to entertain. That can require a serious kitchen, equipped with high end appliances, lots of work space, and smart storage, including custom cabinetry and pantry space. Enlarging an undersized kitchen can mean reconfiguring interior walls as needed, but having a first floor addition built to accommodate a larger kitchen is another common choice.
Natural, Neutral, and Clean
Simplicity is the order of the day when you’re creating an upscale, family-friendly kitchen in your Wayland home. Work with your design/build contractor to identify the natural building materials most suited to your personal aesthetic. A neutral color palette allows for the versatility to change your family’s changing moods, holiday celebrations, and more, while clean design elements promote a restful, open space conducive to family harmony.
The key to keeping a busy family on track, motivated, and healthy is organization. Every kitchen needs multiple kinds of storage, for everything from food to cooking gear and more. Building to accommodate your family’s tech needs and smart appliances makes meal prep and clean up easier, not to mention keeping the kids in or near the kitchen longer – great for keeping the lines of communication between parent and child open!
