The kitchen is the most important room in your home because it is the center of your family’s day-to-day living. Your day most likely begins in your kitchen with a cup of coffee or energizing breakfast to start your day. You deserve to begin every day in a tranquil environment. You prepare meals for your family in your kitchen and probably even eat in your kitchen. Your family and guests often gather in the kitchen to socialize, eat, and cook together. Your kitchen is a bonding area that not only ties your home together, it ties your loved ones together. It’s also the first thing a prospective buyer considers if you are likely to sell your home in the future.
If the kitchen is the most important room in the house, it stands to reason that a good deal of attention should be spend on its design. Today’s open-plan designs reflect a desire for the kitchen to be more than just a place for cooking and eating. Here are a three must haves that are included in all of our McAdams Homes kitchens:
Stainless steel appliances: At McAdams Homes, we pride ourselves in providing the absolute best for our homebuyers and we believe that when it comes to appliances, stainless steel is the best! They are the perfect touch to make your kitchen look modern, sleek and trendy. Not only that, stainless steel is incredibly durable. It fights off rust, fire and heat which makes it top-choice for those who want an appliance that will last and not show wear and tear. If your goal is to have an appliance that lasts as long as possible on the inside and out, then stainless steel is where it’s at!
Granite Countertops: Watch any home improvement or real estate television show, and you’ll notice that the first thing consumers ask for in a kitchen are granite countertops. It is easy to understand why granite has remained the top countertop choice over the years. It is one of the hardest materials; it is durable, easy to maintain and is available in a wide array of colors and textures. From subtle white granites to dark black granites, and everything in between, there is natural granite to complement every design style. Tried and true and beautiful too, that’s what we are aiming for at McAdams Homes.
Spacious layout: Anyone who loves to cook knows that the layout of your kitchen is incredibly important. Trying to maneuver around a small kitchen can be stressful, especially if you have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen (like when the kitchen suddenly doubles as a virtual classroom/home office). Everything about home design is dependent on the way a space is laid out. Even if a room is large, the layout can make it seem smaller and vice versa. When it comes to kitchens, there are lots of popular layout types and we offer options and alternatives to customize all of our floorplans and make them the best possible fit for your family.
