If you haven’t heard the news, open kitchens are all the rage. In recent years, the kitchen has finally been recognized as a place where people do more than just cook their meals. Your kitchen is indeed the heart of your home. It is the place your family gathers after work and school to discuss the nuances of the day while snacking on fruits and sipping coffee or tea. The kitchen is where guests inevitably wind up during a party or informal get-together to converse with others.

Think about the ladies sitting around the kitchen table sipping wine and giggling about the gossip of the day while their husbands swig craft beer at the island while discussing the dominant defense of the Seahawks.

While you prepare dinner, the kids can be doing their homework at the kitchen table while Fido patiently waits for crumbs to be dropped on the floor.
