The kitchen is now the showpiece of the modern home. The ultimate design statement of the home starts in the kitchen, said MaGaha as she introduced the discussion focused on the three essential design elements for the modern kitchen.
We are incorporating desks and built-in TVs along with casual dining tables and soft seating. Kitchens have always been one of the most important rooms of a house but now they blur the lines of what is traditionally found in other areas of the home.
Smaller spaces are being opened up to incorporate broader entertainment functions. Often we are removing walls between kitchen and dining rooms and including an open island or peninsula to connect the two. This enables us to expand the size and functionality of kitchen and dining areas and allows these spaces to serve several purposes.
Homeowners that use these special accents to achieve a one of a kind look can help ensure that their investment stands the test of time by sticking to a balanced and harmonious palette.
