Have you ever stopped and wondered why family and friends all tend to congregate in the kitchen? What is it about kitchens that evoke a mysterious magnetic attraction?  There's a saying about parties and how the best times are had in the kitchen.

Well-designed kitchens can be for preparing and cooking meals, and much more. Over the past few decades, the kitchen has slowly morphed into the core of the home.

In fact, in most homes, the kitchen wears many hats—it's the centre of the family team huddle, the place for bantering with friends, an entertainment centre, a children's art museum and let's not forget its original purpose — a place to enjoy good food with family and friends.

We stopped to think about why this might be — here are five reasons that explain why your kitchen is the heart of your home.

FAMILY FUN IN THE KITCHEN

Kitchens also provide a space for fun family activities. Cooking and baking with your family is a great bonding experience. It also allows everyone to get messy, create new things and learn new recipes.

THE ENTIRE FAMILY USES IT

There are many private rooms in a home that only certain family members tend to use regularly. Maybe dad loves his office and the kids their playroom. However, each member of the family uses the kitchen every day. In recent years, families have begun to adapt their kitchens to provide a more supportive environment to congregate. For example, family computers have started to make their way into kitchens so kids can work on their homework while dinner is prepared, and parents can check a few items off their to-do list while still being in the kitchen with their loved ones. Because of this shift in kitchen dynamics, your kitchen space must be designed to be welcoming and conducive for family members to congregate.

IT'S A MUST-HAVE

Every home has a kitchen. It's required. No other room other than the bathroom serves such a distinct purpose. Having a functional and modern kitchen is truly a blessing. It helps turn meal preparation into a pleasurable activity amidst the busy hustle and bustle of life.

IT SETS THE TONE

People invest a lot into kitchen upgrades because it is the most important room for the resale value of the home. Minor upgrades can go a long way for those not looking to renovate the entire kitchen. Changing the cabinets and/or countertops can significantly transform the mood in the kitchen.

Let David Powles Kitchens help make your kitchen the heart of the home. Our team of skilled design specialists and space experts provide complete design, consultation and installation services to help make your vision come to life.

David Powles Kitchens was employed by my workplace to make and install a bank of cupboards. The staff I dealt with were cheery and went out of their way to answer my questions. I was very impressed so I used this business to make and install new bench tops at my home. Again the staff were cheery and very helpful, answering my queries and explaining the type of bench top finishes etc. Prompt and reliable. I would choose this cabinet making business again.

Powles Kitchens did our new kitchen, and my mothers, in 2017. The results were better than we could have hoped for. Excellent craftsmanship. They employ friendly, knowledgeable staff who pay great attention to detail and they are always willing to help our family get precisely what we wanted. I cannot speak highly enough of the work this company has done for us. I highly recommend them for all your cabinetry needs.
