Something's Gotta Give on Kitchens

I don't think it is breaking news that kitchens sell houes.  Kitchens are a key selling feature of a home.  Kitchens are the heart of the home, the axis of activity, the crux of inspired cooking and baking and the focus for entertaining.

Here is what's happening in kitchen design.

White Kitchens Rule                                                                                      
Yes, white kitchens are the way to go if you are renovating or updating.  White is, and always will be, classic.  White is timeless.  While white is 'on-trend' currently, it will never go out of style.  If you know you will be selling your home in the future, you can't beat white to get the biggest bang for your buck.  A kitchen renovation can promise up to an 87% return on investment.

My All Time Favorite Kitchen

I know I'm not alone on my vote for best kitchen EVER. It's from the movie, "Something's Gotta Give". 

"Something's Gotta Give" was made in 1982. (Lordy, does that make anyone else feel ancient?)  The kitchen still stands up as being timeless and wonderful!

Let me refresh your memory of this glorious kitchen.

  1. Something's Gotta Give was made in 2003, not 1982! It's still a great, timeless kitchen, though.

  2. My bad! Thanks for the correction!
