Eat In Kitchens…a Functional Trend

The kitchen is the ‘heart of the home’..not my quote…it is a fact we all know. So, when planning your kitchen design, you must consider all the activities which you will need to perform. For each family or Individual, the list may change slightly, but essentially, we all need our kitchens to be functional for not only cooking, but for entertaining and eating.   When I’m planning Kitchens for my Clients, I put a tremendous focus on the ‘wish list’ for the Kitchen, I have found that everyone wants to have the opportunity to follow the trend which many Restaurants are following which is cooking and eating in the same space.

In order to accomplish this goal successfully,  the finishes and design of the eating area has to be considered carefully.
