What is a kitchen?
A kitchen is a separate – or attached – part of a home used for the preparation and storage of food. Kitchens typically contain home appliances such as convection ovens, refrigerators, bread toasters, coffee makers, etc. along with a fresh water faucet and sink.
They also commonly counter space for preparing meals, washing dishes, and various other household tasks. Kitchens normally include cabinets mounted above the floor as well as integrated into the counter top assembly. In these, dishes, silverware, and foods that do not spoil without refrigeration are placed for later use.
