Beautiful Kitchens In The Parade Of Homes

In the Parade of Homes, the houses have some trendy kitchens. Homeowners say they want the kitchen to be the focal point in their homes. As one builder said, if you have an attractive kitchen, you have an attractive house.

In one house, the kitchen was designed around the view of the shoreline.

"The homeowner wanted to look at the lake," said Bob Bonner, house Superintendent. "It makes me want to do the dishes. Bring the dishes on of this is what I get to look at." Builders say, homeowners want their kitchen's big, and they want it accessible. In one kitchen, there was a slide in range stove top with two ovens below it.

"It's all right there at your disposal and folks are finding that to be a good change," said Bonner. Vegetable sinks are also a popular item.

"It's got a garbage disposal," said Daniel Kessinger, Vice President of Perry Hall Homes. "You would prepare your fresh fruits and vegetables and then you can come right here and put them on the cooked top." Even the food pantry is convenient.

"One of the things that this pantry features that you don't see a lot of in houses, is that we got adjustable shelves," said Kessinger. "Adjust them to your particular size for the goods that you need to put in." Like food, you need space for your dishes.

"This is a butlers pantry," said Kessinger. "These are long pull out drawers for platters or big dishes, serving dishes." Granite counters, Maple cabinets, and a shoreline view, will help make your kitchen the best looking room in your house.

The Parade of Homes continues this weekend, November 11th, 12th and 13th. The houses are open on Friday and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and on Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Admission is $10.00 for adults, and $5.00 for children.
