Kitchen Conundrum

Throughout the design process your biggest, most expensive decision will possibly be how to design your kitchen. What cabinets do you choose and what countertops? More than ever this is so important especially in view of the open concept home which means your kitchen’s design is a huge part of your home’s overall look.

To say that the kitchen you design will affect the value of your home is no small understatement. So, consider getting professional help so that you can go forward with confidence and style to produce a room you’ll love for years to come.

How do you design a kitchen you’ll love forever? Is it possible to have your dream kitchen become a reality and do you have kitchen goals?

Not only do you need function and flow but you’ll want a kitchen that makes you happy. Because let’s face it everyone is going to gather in your kitchen! The first step is to design your kitchen for your lifestyle. Do you love to entertain? Are you cooking for your entire extended family of 40, or is it an intimate gathering place for two? We all have to eat! So you might as well make the space beautiful!

It’s all in the details.

White kitchen cabinets are a classic choice either with traditional door profiles or modern flat panels. You just can’t go wrong with white cabinets because they give your open concept kitchen a sleek and cohesive look which will visually expand your space and will not compete with the rest of your home’s decor. It’s also a pure and simple design that allows for colorful accents if you so desire.

The next big decision is the type of countertop you will choose. The good and bad news is there are a plethora to choose from. I’m especially drawn to solid surface materials because they provide a consistent, even look and because it creates an invisibly seamed countertop that requires virtually zero maintenance. And they are fabulous!

These two decisions are the canvas to your entire home’s look. For the most impact without regrets, schedule a design consultation with us if you are updating or renovating.
