Most people would agree that the kitchen is more than just a place for cooking. Family members gather in the kitchen in the morning, getting ready for their day or savoring a cup of coffee. Kids do their homework there, so that they can be near parents who are preparing dinner. Plus, many families now prefer a more casual style of kitchen entertaining, with friends chatting in the kitchen while sipping wine or nibbling hors d’oeuvres.
Conventional kitchen designs are often inadequate, but with a little bit of inspiration, kitchens can be redesigned and remodeled to better fit their multiple uses, including entertaining.
