When you’re looking for a new home, you want the best of the best. Of course, world-class amenities are a must as are grand living spaces, multiple bedrooms, and breathtaking views.
But the one room that is most important in the home is undoubtedly the kitchen. This versatile space is where meals are served, where friends gather for a glass of wine and conversation, where homework gets finished, and the place where everyone gathers when you throw a party. (We know the last one is cliche—but it’s true.)
So when choosing a home, you’ll want to look for one that can serve all of those functions and still have exquisite design.
