kitchen

 

The place in your home where food is prepared is called the kitchen.

  • Hodan's house has a very large kitchen.
  • Bring the groceries to the kitchen.
  • The apartment we looked at has an eat-in kitchen. (The dining area is in the kitchen)
  • Bill's kitchen has a large island in the middle of the room. His kitchen has a lot of appliances.*

kitchen

This kitchen has an island.*

This word is often used as an adjective to describe things that are in the kitchen:

  • The kitchen sink has a leak.
  • Put the glasses in the kitchen cabinet above the counter.
  • Valerie has a basket of flowers just outside of her kitchen window.
  • Laura's kitchen counters are made of granite.

 

Note: Kitchens are an area where the family often gathers, so kitchens continue to get larger and larger in American homes. In older homes, the kitchen might be small and include a pantry (a small room for extra food); however, small kitchens are often remodeled nowadays in order to make them larger. It's very common for there to be an area in the kitchen where people can eat--even in houses that have a separate dining room.

*island: A kitchen island looks like a large, built-in table. It often has additional storage space and sometimes the island has a sink, a stove, or a small refrigerator for wine. An island can also be used as an area for eating. In this case, it would need enough space for chairs

*appliances: machines that make life easier in the kitchen: dishwashers, extra stoves and ovens, food preparation equipment, etc.
