Before you begin your kitchen renovation you want to consider the different options available for every aspect of the space. What is going to be the focal point of your kitchen? Is it the counter or the floor? Are you trying to create a classic design, or something more edgy? Is it going to be modern, or traditional? What type of kitchen cabinet design will complete the look of your space?
While white kitchens will never go out of style, we’re seeing a move towards warmer materials and a less utilitarian or expected approach. Consider the new kitchen an extension of the living and dining spaces, especially those in an open concept arrangement. The thought process is a “not so kitchen, kitchen”. Working with a cohesive colour palette and materials to achieve a sense of unity with adjacent spaces provides a connection with interior elements such as furniture, lighting and decorative details, leaving the kitchen with all the importance of function yet all the style to go along with the rest of your home.
