Kitchens can be a lot of fun if you let your imagination go beyond traditional thinking. Families spend the majority of their time in a kitchen so why not put the emphasis in that room? We obviously eat our meals in the kitchen; but in addition, kids do their homework on the kitchen counter-top, parties invariably end up in kitchens, computers are in most kitchens, families watch TV in the kitchen not to mention the cooking and food preparation that goes on in a kitchen.
Kitchens are one of the most important rooms in our home. They need to be significant, functional, comfortable and engaging.
A properly executed kitchen renovation needs to convert a basic kitchen into a multi-functional, useful and family oriented living space. In this example we converted an ordinary kitchen into an eye opening, light filled space with a breakfast room, large open counter-tops, an expansive island, two dishwashers, accommodations for computers and TVs and comfortable sitting areas. It is hard to believe that these photos are the before and after of the same kitchen, but they really are, which is a testament to the power of imagination and good design.
Note the high ceilings in the open gable window of the breakfast room. The room fills with the warm morning sun and makes for a inviting space for families and guests. The back yard and patio are now extensions of the kitchen and breakfast room. There is even a fireplace in the adjacent room that can be enjoyed from the kitchen and breakfast room.
When designing a kitchen or any space for that matter, "think outside the box". Creative design, quality construction and understanding the needs of a client should be paramount in your selection of a kitchen contractor. Don't be limited by the walls in front of you, look to a professional designer like Natelli Homes to guide you to to the right design and premier construction services.
