After years of anticipation praying and waiting patiently for my very own kitchen, last year it happened finally. It's important when purchasing a home to have good bones to the house. Cosmetics such as paint, flooring, lighting etc. can all be upgraded over time. The house we bought is just that. A perfect gem. The feature that caught my eye the most about this house was the open concept family kitchen. I pictured family dinners, typing away at my laptop, cooking up tasty treats and just creating the best memories possible. A few weeks of living in our house, I genuinely knew what people meant when they said the Kitchen was the heart of the home. It is the core hub of the family. Being able to create masterpieces with food, share breakfast in the sunshine with my husband, chase the dogs around the island and turn the lights off at night after another day of memories.
I was researching some kitchen concepts this week and came across the trends for 2012 in kitchens. I fully believe in investing in your kitchen. When choosing quality pieces, you are extending the lifeline of your kitchen. Quality cabinets, counters, organization and flooring focusing on timeless details will allow in the future for fine tuning to change things up. A gallon of paint in the color that is in style or changing the handles of your cabinets are all things that are relatively inexpensive in the big picture rather than having to change out cabinets and fixtures. My encouragement to you is take your time, do your research, save up so that you are prepared to invest in your future. Enjoy every moment making memories in your kitchen
