When I was growing up, the center piece of our home was the kitchen. We lived in a small, 1950’s home with a galley kitchen featuring yellow Formica counters and that old Frigidaire with the rounded exterior. It really didn’t matter that it was small. My mom was a good cook with the quintessential Italian mother. I remember my grandmother Tilde–who was always over–still attempting to school my mom on how it should be done. Even as my parents traded up, first to a rancher, and then to a larger two story home, the heartbeat of our home remained the kitchen.
Kitchens remain one of the most valued spaces in almost every home. Even for folks that bring home takeout on a consistent basis, a great kitchen remains at the top of most homeowners list. While touring a home in El Dorado Hills, I came upon this stunning kitchen that while grand in nature, gave off a warm and inviting feeling. This gourmet kitchen was loaded with all of the goodies; granite counter tops, a huge center island, two dishwashers, a Wolfe range, double oven, warming drawer, and built in refrigerator….I think you get the picture. Any family would be thrilled to own such a beautiful space.
