Every designer knows that kitchens and bathrooms are the biggest renovation investment you can make for your home, so why not make 2013 the year you tackle a makeover?
The great thing about kitchen design right now is that anything goes. That means that regardless of your preference of traditional over modern, or your love of marble over granite, there’s something on trend to fit into every budget and suit almost any homeowner’s tastes.
If you’re looking for a designer kitchen with a timeless look but don’t want it to appear too traditional, place the focus on contrast and juxtaposition. Contrasting colours, unusual lighting, decorative finishes and a mix of hardware are great ways to take a classic look and give it a modern edge. Try different hued doors on the upper and lower cabinets or a super sleek kitchen with an oversized stunning chandelier over the dinner table.
Whether cooking up a culinary creation or getting a glass of water, we use the kitchen every day. In fact, it’s one of the most important rooms in the home. This is why kitchen renovations can be a costly undertaking, but can also give the biggest return on your investment.
When thinking about your dream kitchen, there are a myriad of elements to consider. Everything from flooring to countertops to cabinetry to appliances adds function, style and value to the room. A great kitchen design can even overcome the smallest of spaces.
So whether it’s modern or traditional, grand or galley, the kitchen has come a long way.
