We all have our own share of favorites. Whether it's a book, a movie, or a dessert, we always get excited just thinking about that one item. Aside from these favorite things, we're sure that you also have your own favorite area at home!

If you find yourself always staying in the kitchen and thinking about what food to cook next, we bet that the kitchen is your favorite nook. Not convinced? Check the list below to find out:

Nothing compares to the smell of homemade meals

You can't get enough of the aromas of your favorite food—whether it's spicy curry or savory barbecue. For you, these scents simply add a homey vibe to your space.

You're always on the lookout for budget-friendly utensils

Since you love to cook or bake, you always make it a point to find the best deals for your kitchen. You love visiting the kitchen section of home stores and you know where to go for affordable yet quality finds. You've become a regular face in these stores, so much so that they immediately know what to offer the moment you step inside.

Kitchen makeovers inspire you

When it comes to renovating the home, the kitchen is on top of your priorities. The main objective has always been to make it more functional. A day is incomplete without looking at RL's kitchen transformations, plus, you always find time to gather kitchen pegs and photos.

You think of creative ways to store your kitchenware

A small kitchen can't stop you from having a space that works! You turn every nook and cranny into something useful—whether it's an unexpected shelf or a secret niche for utensils and plates. Since every inch of space counts, you maximize vertical space by installing shelves. One of your most important purchases? Bins, baskets, and containers where you can keep ingredients and other kitchen essentials. You also never run out of ideas when it comes to recycling jars, bottles, and plastic as storage solutions.
