2013 Kitchen Trends: Hub of the House

The kitchen is more than just a place to cook and prepare meals. More and more homeowners want to remodel their kitchen to become the hub of the house where the entire family can come together to eat, do homework and just hang out. Cabinet Discounters has worked on a number of kitchen remodeling projects that involve making the kitchen an open layout that is comfortable and well organized.

Here are some of the basics for designing a Kitchen that is the hub of the house:

Useful Kitchen Countertops

Kitchen Design Trends: Useful CountertopsCountertops serve many functions in a kitchen. Unfortunately in many older homes, the kitchen countertops aren’t well planned and therefore not well used.

Modern kitchen designs feature ample countertops for preparing food as well as space for families to gather. The “Island” is one of the most popular elements of kitchen remodeling projects. This countertop space can be used to house a cooktop, sink, oven or other appliances.

The kitchen island can also be used for storage of cookbooks, pots and pans, and other useful kitchen items. Many homeowners also incorporate seating areas into the kitchen island.

Kitchen Command Center

A kitchen command center usually involves a mix of storage, media charging stations, calendars and message boards.

This popular feature can easily be built into practically any kitchen remodeling project. Cabinet Discounters kitchen designers ask questions to determine what you need and help you create the ideal layout.

In Kitchen Study Space

With as much time as families spend on the go, it is nice to have an open space in the kitchen where the whole family can gather. Incorporating a study space or homework center in the kitchen can help families spend more time together. Parents also like having the ability to monitor their kids computer usage or to be able to easily help answer math problems without having to leave the central room in the house.
