How to Create a Child Friendly Kitchen

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 17th August 2015

Now that we’re in the midst of the school summer holidays, the children will be around the home a lot more and with so many mouthwatering recipes to try out with the kids (see our recipes section for plenty of ideas), what better time to consider what makes a child-friendly kitchen.


Starting with cooking, consider your oven, hob or cooker. The most child-friendly option is an induction hob, as it’s the pan that heats up and not the hob. Rangemaster has a variety of range cookers with induction tops, such as the Nexus, Classic, Classic Deluxe, Elan, Excel, Hi-LITE and the Elise, which comes in a huge choice of colours such as orange, China blue and olive green.

Additional things to consider in terms of appliances are triple glazed doors on ovens, child locks and door alarms and fingermark-resistant finishes. Rangemaster’s new DxD fridge-freezer features ice control, lock and holiday modes, as well as advanced sensors that automatically adjust the internal temperature according to the temperature outside – a great product for summer and beyond. Another tip is for dishwashers – never stack sharp knives facing upwards, always lay them flat.

When it comes to the position of kitchen furniture, an island is a great option if you have the room, as you can install the cooker on the wall behind the island, preventing the area in front of the cooker becoming a walkway, thus minimising accidents. You can also have stepped worksurfaces, with lower worktops perfect for little ones to help roll pastry and decorate cakes.

For flooring, choose something non-slip and comfortable underfoot. Quality vinyl, linoleum and rubber are all great options and come in a huge range of colours and patterns to add fun and personality to your space. One of my favourites is Harvey Maria’s Cath Kidston design in Spot Red, priced £42.95 per sq m.

While you’re waiting for the cakes to bake, keep children entertained by letting them scribble and draw on a wall covered with blackboard paint. Made By Me is a new paint range from Dulux, which includes blackboard paint, priced £7.49 for 250ml. There’s also a variety of colours and finishes you can use to transform accessories, up-cycle vintage finds and give your favourite piece of furniture a complete makeover.
