The role of the kitchen has changed many times throughout history. In days gone by, for example, it was simply a room where meals were made, which were then distributed to the dining room for a more formal experience. Since this time, however, the kitchen has taken on a much more central role in our homes and now seems to be not only where meals are made, but also where families gather at breakfast time to eat, where friends and family gather for conversations, and even where work and homework are done. In many ways, the kitchen has changed as our lifestyles have changed, and it is a true reflection of how we live our lives.
In a day and age where our schedules are so hectic and our personal and leisure time so precious, the kitchen has evolved to serve our best interests as a multi-functional room. Indeed, when we look for a new house to purchase, the state of the kitchen often represents a pivotal point in the decision-making process. Under these circumstances, high-end kitchens that have recently been renovated are highly attractive to buyers, whereas old and tired kitchens are looked at as renovation projects to take on at some future date.
Making Your Kitchen a Unique Space
Just as our kitchens are a true reflection of who we are and how we live, each kitchen should be as unique as we are. Companies like Mowlem & Co offer bespoke kitchens and kitchen furniture that is tailored specifically to suit each and every homeowner. To illustrate this, let’s use the example of a hectic family where each family member has unique needs.
It is perhaps fitting in such a case that their kitchen should become a multi-functional space where bespoke furniture is a mix of comfort and ergonomic practicality, so as to encourage family togetherness on days off. In this scenario, the parents may be concerned with affairs related to finances and be more likely to gravitate toward a kitchen table area that functions as both a dining area and a workspace.
Likewise, the children in this case may seek leisure time and may require a high-tech space where they can use tablets and other high-end technology. In the modern kitchen, such a space may be placed in one corner, or a functional alcove custom-designed just for this purpose.
A wide range of timbers, veneers, finishes and styles is on offer, and the unique vision of each and every customer is encouraged.
