The trend we are seeing is that the kitchen is the hub of the home for our clients. It’s where families gather not only to prepare meals, but where children do their homework, adults pay bills and everyone watches television and entertains.
This home has a theme of accessibility, optimism and openness. As a family gathering place, the kitchen needed to be a centerpiece, filled with light, and provide a connection to adjacent outdoor terraces, patios and the pool. The floor-to-ceiling bay windows in the breakfast room help fulfill this requirement.
The kitchen’s importance to the home owner is second to none. In today’s open-floor home designs, the kitchen takes center stage as the place where the family’s lifestyle starts. Kitchens are the most important selling point in home buyers’ decision.
Concrete as a kitchen countertop material has a certain warmth and appealing tactility not found in natural stone or manmade alternatives. Combined with the ability to customize its color, shape, appearance and its high recyclability, a well executed concrete countertop becomes a kitchen focal point one I enjoy in my own home.
