Often referred to as, “the heart of the home,” the kitchen is where family and friends tend to gather. There is almost a magnetic attraction to the household kitchen and as design and architecture has evolved, this room has morphed into the epicenter of the home.
In many homes, the kitchen wears many hats — family meetings, catching up with friends or even at times a home office or homework station, not to be overshadowed by the original purpose, a place to share and enjoy food. Because of this shift in kitchen dynamics, it is important kitchen spaces are designed to be welcoming and conducive for family members to congregate.
In the most practical sense, the kitchen is where we find the food that nurtures the mind, body and soul. Without it, we would not survive. Kitchens also provide a space for activities. Baking, cooking and sharing with your family creates bonds and memories.
Investing in the heart of your home stems from the importance of this space, not to mention kitchens are critical when it comes to resale value. Kitchens have the ability to not only provide a meal but a complete experience. From major renovations to small upgrades, they can all add up to transforming the mood in the kitchen and contribute to memories that last a lifetime.
