There is one trend I am seeing in several of our renovation and new construction projects.
While I began designing some homes with them pre-Covid, they are being drawn into renovations and new construction more often as people spend time at home focusing on what their home is missing.
So… what is this trend?
A resurgence in a scullery or second kitchen.
They are more functional than a butler’s pantry as they host a second dishwasher and refrigerator (and some even a second range). These spaces work hard in a home when it is time to entertain.
These second kitchens have special touches such as beverage drawers, dishwashers and coffee bars. Storage is always a priority, too.
They are perfect for containing the mess while the main kitchen serves as an entertaining space for family and friends. I believe that once society is back to entertaining, formal spaces will make a resurgence.
Hopefully, our time is limited that we have to continue to socially distance.
I long for the days of not only having family over, but large gatherings of friends. After all, our homes should be a refuge we love to share with others.
