I endlessly rustle and tug with my kitchen, its floor plan and the configurations of all the appliances and cabinets. We entertain so much and so often that I have a good feel for the textures, the appliances and the kitchen I want versus what we have.
After talking to so many friends I have found out that I am not alone in my want to change the kitchen area to a living area. Everyone knows the best parties are those that host themselves in a kitchen area. There is just something about a kitchen area that makes it the perfect living area.
As I recreate, dream up and bucket list what needs to be done in my kitchen to change it to the living area of my dreams, I actually have uncovered some tips for integrating kitchen area to living areas while striking a harmonious balance between technology and décor. Lavishly live a bucket list DIY project out loud and check out what I have found.
KITCHENS AS LIVING AREAS
Gone are the days that Momma cooks, everyone stays out and the food is served. The kitchen is the hub of the party, the place everyone gathers while you cook, and while you all cleanup. Munching, drinks, starters and laughs all happen in this fun living area, no matter how big or how small.
Kitchen areas are no longer just kitchens with appliances in them, rather they are living spaces, extensions of our home that provide not only practical appliances but countertops and cooking spaces that function as a place to share food offerings and merriment.
The focus of kitchens to function as living areas creates the need to choose the right design and innovation of products as well as brands that offer products that fit every level of budget.
Tip – It’s All Brand Driven
Innovation and design are only as good as their selection and their multiple price points. Not everyone is working with the same ‘bank account for remodeling’ so there needs to be a corporation that offers brands for every homeowner.
