Millennial Kitchens are For Looking and Not Cooking

Kitchens, even in apartments, were an important room in the old days.  Prior to the 1950s, apartments had large kitchen with space for a breakfast table (see above picture).

After 1940s and on, kitchen were relegated to galleys with maybe a pass thru eating bar.  But the kitchen was still large enough to prepare the Thanksgiving dinner (see pictures below).

Now developers are again shrinking the apartment kitchen further. Kitchens are are no longer hidden in a separate room or a galley but front and center in the great room.  Many millennials no longer cook meals but bring home takeout, throw something into the microwave or toaster over, or eat out.  The kitchen’s have been reduced to grand coffee bars.  Kitchens must look better than before.  Kitchen are showpieces with contemporary cabinets, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances (see pictures below).
