Have you ever wondered why family and friends all tend to congregate in the kitchen? What is it about kitchens that evoke a mysterious attraction?
The kitchen was designed for preparing and cooking meals. However, over the past few decades, the kitchen has slowly morphed into the heart of the home.
In fact, in most homes the kitchen it’s the center of the family team huddle, the place for coffee with friends, an entertainment center, a children’s play room, and lets not forget its original purpose—a place to enjoy good food .
In a home, there are many private rooms that only certain family members tend to utilize on a regular basis. However, each member of the family utilizes the kitchen every day. In recent years, families have begun to adapt their kitchens to provide a more supportive environment in which to congregate. For example, computers have started to make their way into kitchens so kids can work on their homework while dinner is being made and parents can check a few items off their to-do list while still being in the kitchen with their loved ones. Because of this shift in kitchen dynamics, it is important your kitchen space is designed to be welcoming and conducive for family members to congregate.
Every home has a kitchen. No other room other then the bathroom serves such a distinct purpose.
People invest a lot into kitchen upgrades because it is the most important room when it comes to the resale value of the home. Kitchens set the tone for the entire house.
