Kitchens Are The New Entertainment Space
To many Halifax families, the kitchen is more than a place where food is cooked and eaten. It’s where parties begin and end, bills are paid, pets are fed, homework is done and the day’s events are recalled over cups of coffee. As the kitchen becomes the focal point of the home, it has gained in size and importance.
Homeowners are investing more in their kitchens and allocating generous space in their designs, taking into account its multiple functions as a food-preparation and cooking area, serving and eating area, food and dish storage area and as a social area. More and more, open kitchen designs that blend into the dining and living area are practically the norm these days.
As the demand for additional functionality, technology and ergonomics increases, newer kitchens feature more useable space and modern conveniences, kitchen cabinets with creative storage solutions, high-tech lighting controls, audio/visual input and output and internet connectivity. In addition, functional elements such as center islands, high-performance appliances complimented by finely crafted kitchen cabinetry in any number of wood finishes, durable kitchen counter surfaces such as granite, concrete and engineered stone, backsplashes, multipurpose sinks and high quality tile floors showcase the kitchen as the new entertainment space in the home.
From a financial standpoint, the kitchen has become an area of the home that has a very high rate of return for money invested. Most homeowners are savvy enough to realize that money wisely spent in the kitchen will bring back a good return on appraised value of the home.
