We all know that the kitchen is one the most important rooms in the home. Primarily it is the space we use to prepare, serve and eat food. These are the essential functions we focus on when making a kitchen plan but there is so much more to consider. Afterall, isn’t it also the place where family and guests naturally congregate? It doesn’t seem to matter how large your living area is - everyone ends up in the kitchen!
