Design ideas for the heart of your home, including a butler’s pantry, a safety step, concealed appliances and more.

The kitchen is both the heart and the engine room of the home. A major selling point of any house, this is where the magic happens – not only is the kitchen a functional area for food preparation, it’s also the place where the family congregates and entertaining begins.

With the right design ideas, you can marry function and form to create a kitchen that serves to entertain while also allowing for a seamless cooking experience. The key is to balance quality materials with practical purpose-driven design features – and, of course, an elegant swathe of ‘just because’ design flourishes throughout.
