Why has this happened? There are too many reasons to list here, but they all seem to relate to time. With the development of the 2 career families and single head-of-household families, there isn't enough time in the day to dedicate a lot of it to cooking. Again, innovations (i.e., microwaves, pre-prepared and frozen foods) have allowed us to spend less time cooking during the workweek. And when we are cooking, we don't want to miss anything that is going on around us. On weekends, we may relax in the kitchen/family room by watching TV or even entertaining friends by cooking elaborate meals.
The refrigerator has a new companion in the kitchen. While combination refrigerator-freezers are very popular, many homemakers prefer having an upright freezer in addition to the refrigerator in the kitchen. The white look is passing on. Appliances in attractive colors are gaining in popularity. Models have been introduced where fabric can be added over the appliance door, so that the refrigerator can match the kitchen curtains.
Providing a spacious environment for cooking is essential in kitchen remodeling. I addition to this, dedicated storage areas are also required for various food items. In some of the kitchen models, for example those presented by Beecher, the cooking area and the part used for preparing and cooking of food is separated. Sometimes there are adjacent areas prepared for cooking the food. This makes the movement of the stove easier. Some researchers have provided guidelines on general household management, with specific reference to kitchen remodeling.
