The kitchen is quickly becoming the most important room in the house. As families choose to stay in for dinner and entertainment instead of going out, kitchens are becoming more casual. These casual settings are the backdrop for quality time with the family, dinner parties with friends, and children working on their homework. These reasons are exactly what prompted this family to make their kitchen the center of their home.

The architecture and decor of homes today are incorporating a more open and modern approach to living. This kitchen allows for someone to prepare a meal while still being close to their family members and guests.

Creating a kitchen centered floor plan is the perfect opportunity to update flooring, cabinetry, and appliances.
