The kitchen is the heart of your home. Over the past few decades, there has been a tremendous transformation in how kitchens are utilized; thusly, the design of a modern kitchen differs greatly from those of the past.
Gone are the days when a kitchen was simply a space in which to prepare food and, oftentimes, was separated from the main living and entertaining space(s) within one's home. Kitchens have become a major hub for any number of daily activities and, indeed, a primary living space in and of itself. Your kitchen is where you eat family dinners, have important discussions and help the kids with their homework.
Most importantly, the kitchen is a social gathering place for you and your loved ones to get together to share in a delicious meal, and each other's company, while making cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
In short, the modern kitchen has become an important living and entertaining space; and their design has come to reflect this. Large kitchen islands, open floor plans and warm, welcoming aesthetics are the new norm.
