With Christmas fast approaching, you might be planning to host a grand dinner party for all your friends and family members. However, this could be quite challenging if your kitchen cannot accommodate such an event.
Whether you’re looking for budget-friendly kitchen remodelling ideas or an entire major facelift for your kitchen, now is a great time to make some pre-holiday kitchen upgrades. If you’re inviting guests over for the holidays, you should implement your kitchen changes before the stressful holiday cooking begins.
Our kitchen designing experts at Saturn Interiors can help you design the most exquisite holiday kitchen—one that is sure to make a lasting impression on your party guests. A holiday kitchen renovation can also help to set the mood for the festivities to come.
We’ve come up with a list of sophisticated holiday kitchen remodelling tips. Let’s take a look.
1. Add an Island
One of the most useful festive kitchen designs includes an island, especially if your kitchen space is large enough to accommodate one without having to knock down any walls.
During the holiday season, you’ll want to set your Christmas sweets, or trays of holiday cookies, on a surface that doesn’t obstruct your cooking. You’ll also need a wide counter to prepare your Christmas dinner or carve your Thanksgiving turkey. By adding a kitchen island, you’ll have more than enough counter space to comfortably perform these activities.
Our expert kitchen designers and installers can help you create a stunning kitchen island to suit the rest of your kitchen decor. This will not only provide you with extra counter space but also enhance the aesthetics of your holiday kitchen.

2. Upgrade Your Worktops
If your kitchen worktops are outdated, stained or scratched, you may not want your holiday party guests to see them. As your worktops are a prominent and rather unmissable feature of your kitchen, you should upgrade them to improve the overall appearance of your kitchen for the holidays.
When it comes to worktop materials and designs, there is a wide range of options to choose from. You can pick a worktop made of granite, soapstone, quartz, stainless steel, marble, wood, bamboo, concrete, glass and many other materials.
As worktops come in multiple shapes and sizes, make sure that the one you pick can cater to your family and their habits. Choose the appropriate size and design that not only suits your home but is also sturdy enough to accommodate your guests for the holiday season.
3. Create a Pantry
The Christmas season calls for a lot of holiday meal prep, which requires numerous ingredients and fancy equipment. Such items can also clutter your kitchen space and make it look incredibly messy, which would make a bad impression on your party guests.
By adding a pantry to your kitchen, you’ll create some much-needed storage space to help you declutter your kitchen and make it look more presentable. Depending on the size of your kitchen, you may or may not need to knock down some walls to create a pantry. You could also use any empty corners and alcoves for this purpose and customise them with pull-out baskets and vertical slots for storing cookware.
At Saturn Interiors, our kitchen design specialists can help you create the perfect pantry to accommodate your excess kitchen equipment and reduce the mess. We can provide you with a well-designed pantry that will be a useful, festive kitchen design.

4. Add More Seating Space
During your Christmas festivities, you wouldn’t want to feel left out and secluded in the kitchen while your guests enjoy the party. By adding a comfortable seating space to your kitchen, you can bring socialising to you as you cook.
By creating a place for your guests to hang out within your kitchen, you can make your kitchen a social space, without interrupting the flow of your food preparation. This will allow you to chat and snack with your guests as you cook your holiday meals.
One of the best holiday kitchen remodelling tips is to modify your kitchen island to accommodate bar stools and other comfortable seats. You could also create a cosy lounge within your kitchen, which will add to the festive atmosphere and give you a chance to spend more time with your friends and family members.
