A kitchen is the heart of a home and it is pulsating with energy. Everyone revolves around the kitchen. Even if you do not cook, you are in there every day. You can almost feel and hear the heart beat of the house in a kitchen with all the excitement and movement that takes place in it.
I remember growing up my grandmother's house had
a swinging door from the dining room to the kitchen. In the older homes the kitchens always seemed to be placed out of the way.
Nowadays the kitchen is centered in most homes and often opens into the dining room. This allows for easier socializing and even for guests to help with the preparation of the food. Having a nice big island if you are a baker or a cook and being able to have the space to roll
out dough for pies, or homemade raviolis. Most of the memories in the kitchen are about the great food and the people you are spending time with in a comfortable environment.
The possibilities to remodel the kitchen are endless, from the cabinets and countertops to the appliances; you can get a professional kitchen in your own home. The options that are available to create your perfect kitchen are
all out there. From spice rack drawers to hidden pantry pullouts that look like decorative moldings. A new kitchen construction can inspire home reorganization. Lighting alone can turn a regular kitchen into a dramatic or a cozy space. You can add an island or create a beverage center; clients have even added a countertop for pet feeding and storage supplies. You can also go the more dramatic route
of adding space to the kitchen and improving the traffic flow. Some projects have flipped around the rooms in the house to allow the kitchen to have the all the elements that the homeowner wants.
Your desire for a functional yet up-to-date kitchen may not be as far off as you think. Once the selections have been made (cabinet, countertops, appliances etc.) we always help guide our clients through every step
of the process. My job is to ensure that what you want is what you can get. Nothing can beat seeing that smile come across a clients face when they walk in and see the kitchen they have dreamed of, in their own home.
