Kitchens: The Heart of the home!

Are you a gourmet chef or maybe you just want to look like one. With today’s design features and high-tech appliances you can make a great impression, whether you prefer made-from-scratch or carryout. Some of today’s trendy Kitchen amenities include:

Roomy Islands

A few years back kitchen islands were a revolutionary idea. Now it seems like everybody has one or even two. Islands come in all shapes and sizes with built-in cook tops, sinks, drawers and more.

Sensational Sinks

Speaking of sinks you no longer have a choice of only white or beige. You can now choose from stainless steel, cast iron, granite, quartz or even hand-painted china. Your sink can be under mounted, flush mounted, free standing or pedestal style.

Flashy Faucets

Faucets are now curvy and sculpted with a wide variety of colors and materials. The latest features include built-in water heating and filtering units and of course the must have pullout spray head.

Gadgets Everywhere

You can create your dream kitchen down to the smallest detail, with a coffee maker that starts brewing when your alarm clock goes off, a remote control toaster, a professional grill & sandwich maker and an automatic bread maker. With so many different types of gadgets you can chose those that just suit your lifestyle.

State of the art appliances

When you enter a modern kitchen you might not even notice the appliances. They are probably recessed into the wall and disguised as cabinetry or hiding behind panels that match the cabinetry. Even if the appliances are running you might not notice them. Today’s dishwasher is so quiet; you no longer have to leave the room to talk on the phone.

Your kitchen is undeniably the heart of your home. Families gather here at the end of the day for supper, your kid’s do their homework at the table, and company congregates here instinctively drawn to the warmth and comfort of this special room. No wonder the kitchen has been awarded the title “The Heart of the Home”. For this reason, when selling your home the Kitchen is the most important room in your house. Make sure it is clean, clean, clean and is as up-to-date as possible.
