House Plans with Big Kitchens

A big kitchen isn't just a luxury, it's the heart of the home.

Parties, casual family meals, holidays, quick breakfasts, chatting with friends while preparing dinner — it all happens here. For maximum interaction, select a layout with the kitchen open to the main gathering room so that people can walk in and out. Islands are especially useful, as they provide room for chopping and rinsing (especially in a separate vegetable sink), with a bar providing extra room for guests to sit and snack. A large kitchen might also provide a walk-in pantry, room for a wine fridge, a butler's pantry, and more.
