The Kitchen & Bathroom Design Podcast

16 Designing kitchens for entertaining

Episode Summary

This week as we look at designing kitchens for entertaining. The open plan nature of modern kitchens means that having guests, family and friends round for get togethers has become a prime function of the space and is top of the list of requirements in most briefs. But how do you balance what the client wants with what they need? What are the essential elements that make it work and how can you balance the desire to entertain with the day-to-day needs of a family kitchen? We met up recently with a couple of excellent designers to discuss these very questions - Daniele Brutto from Onesta in Battersea (we actually met in their very nice showroom) and Katie Malik, who is a very accomplished interior designer based in Cambridge. But before we get stuck into that, we are just a couple of weeks away from kbb Birmingham 2020, they’re our very kind supporters in this podcast, and it is, of course, the biggest kitchen, bedroom and bathroom show in the UK. It runs from Sunday March 1st to Wednesday March 4th and we’ll be recording LIVE episodes of the podcast everyday at 2pm in The Bar – there’s only one bar so you can’t miss us.
