Get ready for a true reality check based on a survey about American’s actual wants and needs wants and needs regarding kitchens. Let’s get all the facts straight and see what your neighbors are up to.

 

This is our favorite subject topic: you and your kitchen. Have you ever wondered what is the true difference between an Instagram post and reality? The kitchen you just put your heart into looks stunning but can you really cook there? Is it easy to clean? What if you have pets and that delicate decor goes to pieces?

 

We did our research to really listen in to voice of the people. It actually goes quite well with a survey done by Houzz so let’s take a look.

Looks like the perfect kitchen is the one where you can hide away your clutter. Unless, of course, you are a naturally neat and well-organized person – in which case, good for you! The majority of people picked cabinets with doors and we are not surprised. Open shelves look great and will give that little extra something to your kitchen but what about people who have pets? The fur? The mess? We hear you and we understand it’s not for everyone.
