It is often said that the kitchen is the heart of the home. And I would have to agree with that. I know it is usually the most popular room in my house. It is the place where everyone seems to gather.
Food is a big part of life and gathering around that food brings memories and togetherness. Whether we are cooking together, eating together, or just talking while I am cooking dinner, the kitchen involves some great times for my family.
Over the summer we remodeled our kitchen. It was a big project, and at times a bit trying, but it was so worth it.
The fun and excitement of my new kitchen has not worn off even after a few months. I still love it. All of it.
If I had to narrow it down though to one thing I love about it, it would have to be the fact that I have more space. More counter space, more storage space, more space to move around. It is bigger, more open, and flows so much better.
The main reason I love more space in my kitchen is that my girls are spending much more time in the kitchen with me. My old kitchen was a one person kitchen, but my new kitchen allows all of us to be in the kitchen at once. I love this because my kitchen is definitely the center of my home now.
We put off our kitchen remodel for years. I wanted to live in the kitchen and get a feel for what I really wanted long term. I also wanted to save money to pay for my kitchen. A kitchen remodel is a big project and going in debt for a new kitchen was not an option I considered.
I am really glad we waited. Waiting for it not only allowed me to get what I wanted, but I think my whole family appreciates it a whole lot more.
