4 Features that Make the Kitchen the Heart of the Home

While many may state that the living room is the liveliest space of the house, the Sterling on the Lake team believes that the kitchen is truly the heart of the home. Think back to childhood days of helping your family bake holiday treats. You may not have created a five star dessert, but that didn’t matter. You were creating meaningful memories in your home. Memories that, to this day, take you back to the kitchen when the scent of freshly-baked goods wafts from the oven. The homes of Sterling on the Lake embrace what makes the kitchen the epicenter of the home with features perfect for crafting memories from scratch. From oversized islands to top-notch appliances, follow along for four features that truly make the kitchen the heart of the home: 

1. Oversized Kitchen Island

An oversized kitchen island offers the perfect space for the whole family to test out holiday recipes and discover new favorites, like that of “The Belfort” by D.R. Horton. With plenty of extra counterspace, children can stretch out batches of dough to decorate for holiday cookies, and keep a watchful eye from the nearby great room as their treats bake in the oven.

2. Top-Notch Stainless Steel Appliances

Channel your inner top chef using stainless steel appliances like those found in Taylor Morrison’s “Rabun” kitchen design. When the pressure is on to create a holiday feast, these appliances will help you get the job done. Plus, these durable kitchen necessities will last for many holidays to come.

3. Durable Granite Countertops

With all the craziness that comes with crafting the perfect holiday meal, you have to be prepared. That’s why you need kitchen space that will compliment your food prep, not complicate it. Granite countertops, like those featured by Tipton Homebuilders, can aid in many kitchen tasks. It can go from being a place to whip up mashed potatoes to doubling as a buffet. Plus, you don’t have to worry about damaging your counters after a cooking spree. Granite is durable and requires little upkeep to remain beautiful.

4. Comforting and Warm Lighting

Embrace the coziness of the winter season with warm kitchen light fixtures, like that of Vanderbilt Homes’. Comfortable lighting sets the mood for spending a snug night in testing out seasonal recipes around the kitchen island, like these delicious winter soups.
