The kitchen spaces that Sandgate Construction have created have evolved significantly over time, much in the way that the cuisine served from them has evolved. Kitchens of the 70’s and 80’s were rooms where the magic of a meat-and-three-veg meal happened, typically behind closed doors. The resulting meal was triumphantly brought to a formal dining room to be complimented and devoured. The array of additional kitchen devices was limited to a toaster and a mixer, gradually extending to a crockpot and a microwave. The number of power outlets associated with these older kitchens is one of the most common frustrations for today’s cooks.
Through the 80’s and 90’s and moving into the 2000’s, the concept of the kitchen island emerged, offering much-needed additional counter and storage space. Eat-at kitchen bars with stools that tuck away began the development of the kitchen as a whole-of-family space.
Meal preparation in the 21st century has become communal, with multiple people sharing the kitchen space, making the flow of the kitchen layout and a focus on available counter space ever more important. Meals may be prepared or presented on counters, islands, or kitchen bar spaces and diners invited to help themselves. Wine racks, hanging racks for glasses and pots, unique marble, quartz and solid wood countertops as well as a whole new take on lighting with under-cabinet, wall-wash, drop and spots can elevate the kitchen from functional to the premier feature room of the home.
Along with this change to interior kitchens Sandgate Construction have been developing outdoor kitchens which serve as substantial outdoor rooms that include stainless steel countertops, gas stoves and fireplaces.
