Kitchens are undeniably the heart of the home and since we spend so much time in them, it’s all the more reason to create a space we truly adore! Here are a few things to keep in mind when designing your dream kitchen.
First, find a focal point.
Splashy tile, fancy floors, bright kitchen cabinets, and busy countertop patterns give the eye too much to look at. Pick one focal point in your kitchen design and complement that area with a few other quieter, eye-catching details.
And, don’t be afraid to mix cabinetry styles and finishes.
Leaving a kitchen intentionally unmatched can make it feel more organic and is a terrific way to get that fully custom look. Consider light and dark combinations. Dark finishes on lower cabinets help to anchor the kitchen into place visually, while a lighter finish on taller cabinets, help keep things bright and airy.
Next, as design trends continue to move toward clean lines and a modern aesthetic, uncontained clutter has no place in the kitchen. Fortunately, there are a multitude of storage solutions designed to use every bit of available space to keep any size kitchen, fully stocked and functional.
Last but not least, don’t rush through the planning and design phase.
Your instincts will be to move quickly to construction, but take your time to visualize the layout, functionality and design of your new kitchen. Answer questions such as…what works well, what is missing, and what can’t you live without?
