Kitchen – Dreaming about a kitchen may simply mean that you are hungry in your sleep. However, if this is not the case, then the kitchen symbolizes the heart of your house. For centuries, the hearth (or kitchen) was spoken of as a separate part of the house that was not only the most important but absolutely distinctive from the rest of the structure. While today we rarely invite strangers into our homes, in the past it was expected to allow strangers into your hearth room. The rest of the house, however, was off limits. The hearth was the social area, and living rooms were unheard of. Everyone gathered in the kitchen to hear the latest news or stay worm and work on indoor projects, such as knitting.
