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?
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!
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.
