We've all heard it before: The kitchen is the new family room. Between open-plan spaces that merge the eating and living spaces and the ubiquitous kitchen island that begs pulling up a chair, the kitchen has never been more the heart of the home. And as such, it has to be able to accommodate any and everyone. A bigger kitchen is in demand for sure. With a large island—trying to accommodate as many seats around the island as possible is a big thing. This is especially true for larger family homes, where buyers expect that all residents—and a bevy of friends—can sit together. If you’re looking at 5-6 bedroom homes, logically, they're for families of, on average, 5. So you want to make sure that the kitchen can accommodate these larger families.
