We live in a very busy world and in a lot of cases parents with children both work. It is important that the kitchen is designed in such a way that it delivers all things needed in this modern world.
If the kitchen is designed right it will be the space that is really the most important room in the house.
Children today use computers and Mum needs not only to keep an eye on them but help then with their homework etc. We often design in a space for Mum to sit so she can address those important times when she needs to talk to the kids but she needs to organise the meals etc.
Often we design filing drawers in the kitchen with a nook for the phone & a drawer for pens, calculator, keys etc.
