The new hottest craze in remodeling is the "family" kitchen, which is great if you have little ones like me. These new kitchens feature adequate seating, storage, and light. With the usage of formal dining rooms falling by the minute, kitchen islands are replacing the old standard of table and chairs. Not only does the exile of dining rooms provide us with the more interactive experience of being able to sit around the kitchen while Mom (or in my case, Dad :) ) cooks the family dinner but it also opens so much extra space up for the wide open kitchen you've always wanted. With more space comes so many more options! Contractors everywhere are utilizing this extra space to make room for larger refrigerators (who doesn't need that?!), larger pantry, more drawers and cabinets, and sometimes even an extra oven or dishwasher. More windows or even a sliding door or two give parents a great view of kids playing outside or arriving guests. So if you've been thinking about knocking that dining room door down lately then give us a call!
