The American Kitchen!
I am sure everyone will agree when I say that the kitchen is the heart of the house! It is the main place of gathering and an area people gravitate towards. With house requirements evolving with the family dynamic so are kitchens. According to NAHB, the American kitchen has some fun and functional trends that should make any home owner excited!
Open Floor Plans
Many of homeowners are requesting an open space for their kitchens. Long gone are the days of a closed off and hidden kitchen. An open kitchen will encourage interaction among guest at your next dinner party! The Aspen Creek House Plan is a great example of an open floor plan, it features an open kitchen design directly connected to the family room and the keeping room.
Nowadays, homeowners enjoy an appointed area for outdoor entertaining. Trending is the idea of bringing the kitchen and eating areas outdoor. By incorporating spaces traditionally found inside the home in the exterior, families can enjoy nature while winding down after a long day. The Devall House proves to be ideal to American homeowner with its over sized grilling porch.
The kitchen island is a must have on every home buyers list. Having multi-layered and multi-purposed kitchen islands are all the rage in kitchen design. Our Fairhope house plan includes a wonderful and huge multi-purposed kitchen island. This island boast a modern stove range, abundant storage, and roomy breakfast bar sitting area!
