Happy Kitchen, Happy Home!
Our kitchens have become our coffee shops and juice bars, and our entertainment areas. With an open concept kitchen we are connecting the eating/dining area to serve as the ultimate hub.
The kitchen is a personal space for anyone who loves to cook, so it is important to focus on your wish list including what are your priorities when renovating or designing a brand new kitchen. Think of flow with the flooring, repeating finishes, paint colours,(not everything has to be the same, but there has to be consistency so that it flows). Function is important to consider so that the floor plan works for the purposes of what you want the kitchen to do. For example, eating area, cooking space for more than one, and food prep area. Should you consider an island that can allow for more seating?
Top Six Kitchen Styles to Consider
Ways to update your Kitchen
Your Kitchen Faucet
A faucet with a pull-down feature simplifies clean-up making it easy to clear away debris. This is a good option for busy kitchens. Faucets are available in multiple finishes such as chrome, stainless steel, black, bronze, gold, nickel. Consider it going with your hardware for your cabinets.
Upgrade Your Dishwasher
Switch Up Your Range
Cooking Range tops can be gas, electric or induction. The induction cooktop uses electromagnetic coils under glass (the burner does not get hot, but the magnetic pan does. Induction technology has been long used in commercial kitchens but it is newer for homes.
Upscale Your Kitchen Countertop
Choose the Right Sink
Sinks have many choices available. The size, deep, single, double, single and half plus the style has to be considered. The farm style apron-front handle oversized pots and pans easily and are under-mounted, so your countertops keep more space. Sinks range is quality and finishes.
Add Some Interest To Your Kitchen
Kitchen Color Pop
Cabinets can be painted, refaced or replaced. Dramatic light and dark cabinets with mix in touches of wood for warmth are very stylish and trendy. Kitchen cabinets done in white (or off white) stand the test of time. White cabinets are most beautiful when contrasting details that are not white will allow the cabinets to stand out.
Finish with The Right Floor
Flooring should flow with the rest of the house in style, and colour. Many choices are available that include vinyl planking, wood, cork, ceramic, concrete and stone.
