Back in the ’80s, there was a hit song called “You’ll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties.” About a decade ago, IKEA used it to advertise new kitchen concepts. And today, the theme still rings true: Kitchens are the new multi-purpose hub.
When newer homes hit the market, they rarely have a formal living area or dining room. Our more casual lifestyle demands a big, open-kitchen layout. And even if your kitchen’s older or smaller, friends and family will still want to hang out there.
