As the “heart of the home”, the design and décor of your kitchen must be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. Whether your style is modern, traditional or transitional, it must suit your lifestyle. The kitchen is the most important room of your house in terms of “return on investment,” so hire a professional to work with you to protect this investment and avoid costly mistakes. Trends now are for an open plan to a great room/dining area as this is where we entertain family or friends. Drawers rather than cabinets maximize storage and accessibility.
