Cookies, cakes, and more. Mmm-mm. The holidays wouldn’t be the holidays without baked goods. But let’s be real: if you’re the one baking them, having a kitchen that doesn’t work for you can take some magic out of the season. When planning your next kitchen remodel, think about your plans. Are there more big family gatherings and holiday hosting duties in your future? If so, what are some of the essential features, options, and accessories you can include in your design that can make baking season-and every season-even brighter? We’ve got a few ideas.

  1. Counter Space – The heart of any baking kitchen is its workspace. When your kitchen design doesn’t allow for ample counter space to roll out dough, assemble ingredients, and decorate creations, your passion can quickly become a headache. A large, durable countertop on your cabinet run or central island can make all the difference.Still need a little extra? Medallion’s Appliance Garage with Easy Lift Up Door let’s you access important tools easily, providing additional space while keeping larger countertop appliances neatly tucked away until the next get-together.
  2. Stand Mixer – Along similar lines, a high-quality stand mixer is a baker’s best friend. Models with various attachments for mixing, kneading, and whipping are a great place to start-but having the right spot for it is key. Our Base with Mixer Shelf offers convenience for both creating with and storing this critical baking tool.
  3. Double Ovens – If you find yourself baking for a crowd, we recommend double ovens. Our products offer multiple configurations for any kitchen – work with your designer to find something that suits your needs. It’s a worthwhile investment that can help reduce the pressure of serving delicious dinners and desserts during the holidays.

  1. Storage – Pull-out shelves, adjustable dividers for baking sheets and tools, and deep drawers for bakeware – Medallion has them all. Want to make hectic holiday baking a breeze? Consider adding storage options like our Base with Deep Roll-Out Trays.
  2. Spice Rack –But not just any spice rack. Maintain that counter space with our Multi-Level Spice Rack that keeps your favorite seasonal seasonings within reach when you need them—and out of the way when you don’t.
  3. Walk-In Pantry –Essential for storing flour, sugar, and other baking essentials, a Walk-in Pantry with adjustable shelves and clearly labeled containers for easy access can do wonders.

Sure, you’ve already got your holiday-themed apron, oven mitts, and dish towels. But if baking is a big part of your annual plans, incorporating these features, options, and accessories can transform your kitchen into a true, holiday-ready baking haven.
