Jacques Pepin once wrote, “This is what a family is all about-one another, sitting around the table at night. And it’s very, very important, I think, for the kid to spend time not only around the table eating with their parents, but in the kitchen.” It’s a bit of an understatement, but we think he’s got a point.

Broken down to the most practical terms, the kitchen is the place in your house where meals are prepared, served, and frequently eaten. But for most of us, it’s far more than that. The kitchen tends to be the hub of the home. You might go to your bedroom to sleep, to the living room for TV, or your home office to work. But everyone eventually returns to the kitchen.

Not only that, but the kitchen isn’t just where we eat. It’s a place where the family or friends come together. We’ll share how our days went, hash out problems, and just simply talk. The act of cooking is another event that helps people bond and bring them closer together. There’s something alchemical, almost mystical, about two or more people creating a meal together. But to gain all of those feelings, your kitchen needs to feel like…well…yours.
