Many have said, “The kitchen is the heart of the home.” What every kitchen needs is stylish design, that make it not only a fully functional space, but a space in which people will love to spend time. After all, in most homes, the kitchen really is the most important room in the house.
- A Well-Sized Island
The social center of the kitchen, be sure to include a well-sized island.
- The Perfect Sink
Every cook knows what works for his or her prep and clean-up style.
- Integrated Refrigeration
Author Mick De Giulio says, “Creating cabinet facades to hide refrigeration units gives me a tremendous amount of design freedom. By eliminating a large, boxy element, I can make a kitchen feel more room-like.”
Look around your kitchen and consider which elements might be a bit lacking when it comes to both form and function. And if you find quite a bit that you are not happy with, take heart: there’s no need for a top to bottom remodel; just target a few specific elements and presto: a “new” kitchen is born!
For example, if your cabinetry works fine but looks dated, you will be amazed at what some new cabinet hardware can do — visit Klaff’s Home Design Store to see a huge cabinet hardware selection. And consider switching out just one or two appliances, such as the range and dishwasher, for a matching new pair. If your fridge is either black or white, go stainless with the others. And last? Fill your kitchen with visual texture and bright light!
