The kitchen is the heart of the home. People like to congregate in the kitchen, whether it’s for cooking or socializing, or both. Although guests are looking to relax while they are on vacation, they don’t want to be made to feel like they have to eat out, or order out, every meal of the day. A properly outfitted and well stocked kitchen will make your guests feel more at home and will entice them to use it.

Here is a list of features to consider when designing your kitchen:

  • Cabinets

  • Countertops
