In the Gen Y Kitchen, It Takes Two (Two Cooks, That Is)
Are you a Millennial? Do you call Y your Generation? If so, you’ll likely be re-shaping and re-outfitting your home for many years to come. And you probably won’t want your mother’s kitchen. You’re creating ways to live that are uniquely your own.
Yet many of today’s kitchen floor plans, as you may be finding, are remnants of previous generations. They work best for one cook, with others standing and watching nearby. But Gen Y couples want to cook together, collaboratively, as partners. You’re a growing foodie tribe bringing good eats into your homes from your diverse experiences outside.
Your Gen Y kitchen, whether remodeled or built new, will remain your home’s most important room. It’s the place for fun, talk, work, and socializing. And that takes more than a simple cabinetry style or color selection. How your kitchen functions is what will set your design apart. Your goal is to create a Gen Y kitchen that cooks for two.
