Enhance Your Holiday Entertaining with These Kitchen Details

Holiday entertaining season is just around the corner. Soon homes in Nampa ID will be filled with the tempting aromas of holiday meals. Having the right kitchen details can make special occasion meals easier and more fun to prepare.

What elements make a kitchen ideal for holiday season?


An organized kitchen is easier to use. Having everything in its place saves you time and energy when you’re cooking, and looks better too! Plentiful storage space allows you to have a tidy kitchen. You’ll enjoy entertaining even more, and you won’t mind if your guests peek into your cupboards.


One overhead light doesn’t cut it in the kitchen. In addition to attractive and functional ambient lighting, you’ll want task lighting in the work areas, pendants over the island, and natural light from the windows.


Islands are a great way to add workspace while also providing a casual eating area and conversation space. In open-concept homes, islands help unite the kitchen and living areas.


Top-quality new appliances are a pleasure to use and look at. They use less energy and are easier to clean than outdated ones.

Brighton Homes kitchens are designed with function and beauty in mind. A perfect example of this is the kitchen in our Daydream Believer floor plan. It has a spacious open design with plenty of cabinets to keep things organized. More storage is available in the walk-in pantry, which has built-in shelving and a window. The kitchen has layers of lighting with recessed ceiling lights, task lighting directed on the work surfaces, and stylish pendants over the island. The island has plenty of seating space and a large work surface. Stainless steel Bosch Energy Star appliances include a wall oven, built-in microwave and 5-burner gas cooktop.

This 2,960-square-foot floor plan features an open concept design that makes entertaining a pleasure. The home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, plus a den and media room that could each serve as guest rooms during the holidays.
