The Heart of the Home

Which room is the “Heart of the Home”; the kitchen, of course!

There’s a reason why the kitchen is called the heart of the home – where else does your family get together to cook, to eat, to socialize, and, sometimes, just to catch up over a quick snack or a cup of coffee.  The idea of a kitchen has changed over the years and now you are finding that the kitchen has evolved into an all-purpose room, including a dining table, computer desk, entertainment area, even a fireplace.

Heart of the home

Modern time’s kitchens are even more practical, they are welcoming, and most of all… fun. Our kitchens are almost art projects, with their sophisticated colours and innovative components. They can also look more like the rest of the house, complete with furniture-like cabinets, wood flooring, and artwork.

The perfect recipe for a beautiful kitchen design wise calls for a lot of thought to both the components and the activities that take place in the room, from cooking and cleanup to snacking and socializing. Above all, the perfect kitchen is both comfortable and a pleasure to work in.

Creating the most individual and practical heart of you home may entail a makeover. Kitchen makeovers are one of the most popular home remodels in the business for just this reason. From cabinetry to countertops, there’s an entire world of kitchen design out there to make sure your kitchen makeovers not only update kitchen space in your home, but make your life easier and more enjoyable at the same time.

Storage space

Kitchen Cabinets – Storage

Most kitchen makeovers start with discussions about storage – cleaning up the clutter and gaining more space, as more modern homes are practically smaller than the large expansive homesteads of yesteryear. This means focussing on new cabinets and countertops. It makes sense, since these are probably the two most important things to consider when it comes to making your kitchen more efficient, convenient, and beautiful. If you can afford it, install custom cabinets in your kitchen. They are built to fit so they make the best use of the space you have to work with, and you can choose the perfect building materials and finishes to fit your home design and personality.


Kitchen Nooks

Why simply update kitchen cabinets, when you can re-envision the entire space? Building an eat-in kitchen that includes a dining bar and space for a kitchen table or even a kitchen island is a great way to adapt your kitchen to meet the current trend of the kitchen as the heart of the home. You can even add in a kitchen nook, creating that quaint “homey” feeling.  Installed in an area with large windows that overlook views or garden areas, a kitchen nook is a wonderful place to sit and chat with family members, or just to get lost in your own thoughts as you work through the issues of the day over a comforting cup of coffee.
