The kitchen has been said to be the “heart of the home” and that phrase really makes sense. Whenever we have company, everyone seems to gravitate to the kitchen. Besides our porch, it’s the most popular room in the house. When I tour a home, the kitchen is one of the first rooms I flock to. I can’t wait to see what finishes were chosen, what color the cabinets are, what special little gems it may be hiding. There are so many amazing design options to choose from, it is so hard to settle on a favorite. Looking at kitchen photos never gets old for me. I am always discovering new ideas I would like to incorporate in my ever-growing dream kitchen. To inspire you, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the gorgeous kitchens that I’ve found. 18 of them!
No matter what the style, the common element in all these kitchens is a center island (sometimes 2!) or some type of peninsula. I’d be lost without my kitchen island. I use it for everything. If you’re wanting to add an island to your kitchen, I have some great ideas for kitchen islands here!
Nowadays, the kitchen no longer serves just as a functional room in which food is prepared. With today’s popular open floor plans, it often becomes part of the main living area. Many people also use it as a home office to pay bills or working online from a desk area. People are in love with fabulous kitchens. It’s one of the most popular (and often most expensive) home improvement projects. With so many styles, colors, and materials to choose from it’s easier than ever to create the kitchen of your dreams. Even if you don’t plan a complete makeover, you can pull some of the ideas from these photos to give your kitchen an update. Pay as much attention to accessorizing your kitchen as you would any other room in the house.
