There are some really good reasons why the phrase “the kitchen is the heart of the home” was coined. Think about it.
Firstly, you can’t even functionally call a space a “home” without a kitchen. Secondly, every single member of your family uses it - and in ways beyond just meal preparation. The kitchen is where hearts are spilled over wine, where arguments are created and resolved, where kids drink their alphabet soup and learn to count, and where your friends who have nothing better to do will sit around.
In other words, your kitchen will always be a place of memories so why not make it the most beautiful room in the house? Take a look at the following renovations and makeovers that transformed these kitchens into stunning masterpieces. Click on the old photo to reveal the new look!
