The Big Picture in Kitchen Design
The kitchen is no longer a single purpose room, designed only to store and prepare food. Gone are the days when most homes had a separate dining room, family room, and formal living room. Today’s kitchens are typically a multi-functional space combining the traditional food-related activities with socializing, entertaining guests, homework, and much more. It tends to be one of the busiest rooms in the house and must accommodate numerous people at once. Open plan kitchens are more popular than ever as they allow for a flow between the kitchen, dining, and entertaining areas, and create a more sociable atmosphere centered on the kitchen.
