Baker kitchen after tile backsplash 2The size of our kitchens have doubled since 1920, and we spend more time in our kitchens than every before.  In fact, some families spend more time in their kitchens than they do in their living room, which is easy to imagine.  In many households, guests will sit around the dinner table, which is usually in the kitchen, and chat for hours after the meal is over.  More than ever families cook together, making the kitchen the most important room in the house.  The kitchen has also become the most expensive room, considering the value of the appliances, equipment and supplies that are stored in it.  It is no surprise that designing the right kitchen is more important than ever.

Many people now use the kitchen as the centerpiece of their house and design their main floor using the kitchen as a base.  Here are some basic things to consider when planning your kitchen remodel:

  1. What is the function of your kitchen?  Is the kitchen a place where the family gathers to cook elaborate meals and spend time together, or do you infrequently cook?
  2. Which types of appliances are most important to you?
  3. What would make your kitchen fit more efficiently with the rest of your home?
