Kitchens: The Heart of the Home

Kitchens have experienced significant changes over the past thirty years as house plans become more open and entertainment is centered more around food and beverage.  With the increased emphasis on how kitchens are utilized; materials have changed significantly as well.   

Surfaces: Countertops, tile backsplash and all other wall cladding can be painted, stone, glass, wood, concrete and man- made materials.  Choosing the right surface should be determined by how it’s used and the level of upkeep required.

Cabinet storage: Modern cabinetry can make a kitchen of the same size but built 50 years ago function better, offer more ergonomic features and increase storage capacity.

Appliances: After years of hiding appliances from view they are now returning to center stage with bolder colors and increased technology.  Smart appliances are designed to make time in the kitchen more efficient and enjoyable.
