When you live in Tampa, your kitchen design is often a functional eating area by day and a combined serving and socializing area by night. There’s no question that it is a major focal point of daily life. Therefore remodeling your kitchen should give it the chance to perform all those functions yet still have that unique touch of ‘you’.
