Comments Off on 3 Ways To Make Your Kitchen The Center of Attention

The American home has seen its fair share of transformations over the years. What’s hot. What’s not. We’ve seen it all.

Whatever the current building trends are, the kitchen remains a major hub for families. Not just as a place to prepare food & eat it. It’s an after-school homework station. A place to ‘check-in’, check messages & prepare for outings. The kitchen has become an extension of the Great Room, or Living Room, of our home.

So how can we transform the kitchen into your home’s center-of-attention?

Get Tech-Friendly

We live in customized, personalized world now. Love having your favorite ipod playlist at-hand while preparing dinner? We’ll make sure there are plenty of outlets, easily accessible to you. Including digital docking stations for your favorite media player is also an option ~ one the kids will love, too!

Island Living

A well-designed service/prep island can turn a kitchen into an entertainment center, and more. We love having guests over for dinner. But while preparing food, our guests can often feel “in the way”. A kitchen island gives them a place to hang, socialize & enjoy hors d’oeuvres. All-the-while you are free to prepare the meal while hosting your guests. Take a look at this custom design/build project ~ the detail on the kitchen island is an example of our first-rate craftsmanship at work!

Work Smart (Not Hard)

Folks who do a lot of entertaining will love a second sink, dedicated to prepping. Warming drawers are also a popular option. These help keep food just right & at-the-ready while main course dishes are finishing up. Motion-activated lights above the sink & prep surfaces help you work efficiently. They also save energy (and $) by turning off when not in use.

These are just a few ideas to get you started. Whether you’re thinking of remodeling, or starting a new home building project, Westbridge Homes is ready to guide you.
