The holidays often are associated with get-togethers. In fact, 79 percent of consumers say they normally attend parties throughout the season. And since the kitchen is the spot that party guests congregate, Moen, the number one faucet brand in North America, offers tips and new products to make your kitchen functional and fashionable before your guests come knocking.
Easily update the sink area
From prepping food, washing hands and cleaning up – the sink is the hardest-working area of the kitchen – especially during the holidays. Adding a new sink, like Moen’s Low-Profile Divide, can make any task easier. The lower center divider offers the best of both words: the openness of a single bowl, making it easier to rinse large items and swivel pot handles, while still having the convenience to move items from bowl to bowl.
Next, add a new kitchen faucet, like the Notch™ pulldown model from Moen. The transitionally designed faucet features a high-arc pulldown spray wand and a uniquely designed 45-degree angled handle. Plus, Moen’s Reflex® technology provides a spray wand that offers effortless retraction, easy maneuverability and it puts itself away.
Control the clutter
Create a designated home for items that live out in the open, like dish towels. Make a tidy work space by installing a towel bar or ring. Just as they keep towels off the counter and floor in the bathroom, they do the same in the kitchen. Moen offers a variety of accessories in styles and finishes to coordinate with existing kitchen fixtures. Don’t forget to pick up a few towels to display in festive colors will also add to the overall merriment!
Prep the pantry and stock the bar
During the holiday season, you’re bound to have a mix of planned get togethers and unexpected guests. Easily entertain any visitors by keeping a few tasty, non-perishable essentials on hand, like nuts, crackers, fruit spreads or popcorn.
You don’t have to stock a full bar simply because it’s the holidays. Instead, play it safe with a few mild bottles or both white and red wine, like Chardonnay and Pinot Gris or Cabernet and Pinot Noir. Having the ingredients on hand to create one, signature and festive cocktail – like egg nog – will be sure to impress and satisfy.
One thing you will want to check before guests arrive is your glasses and dishware. If a few pieces are chipped or looking lackluster, pick up a few new items in a variety of styles to create a fun and eclectic mix.
Focus on seating
Where the food and drinks are located is where your guests will gather. Once you’ve determined that location, be sure to add extra seating. Pull in chairs from other rooms or add stools around the kitchen island; your guests will appreciate being able to relax and linger – especially if it’s near the food.
A lot of people prefer to let guests sit wherever during a dinner party. But it’s a nice touch to use place settings to assign seats, as it can help the conversation flow more easily. Put guests with similar interests next to each other; you may just be responsible for creating a new friendship…or romance!
