When you’re designing your dream kitchen, the possibilities are almost endless. But you don’t have to be overwhelmed with all the available options and styles. You can still pick your favorite materials and create a beautifully designed kitchen. As one of the best kitchen remodeling designers, we’re here to assist you in realizing your dream project. Here are some pro tips that can help.
Practicality Above All Else
Before anything, you need to know your kitchen first. For instance, you need to determine where surface spills happen the most, and take into account how your kids and pets go about in your kitchen. Usually, the areas where spills typically happen are around cooktops and sinks, which are also the hardest-working areas in your kitchen. In these areas, we suggest installing quartz countertops, since they’ve proven to be durable against spills, moisture and stains.
Make Use of Opposing Styles
A traditional kitchen design can have countertops and cabinets with the same finish to give a clean and uniform look. However, your kitchen design can look just as great, if not better, if you mix and match opposing surfaces and finishes. For instance, marble countertops have seen a resurgence in popularity, but their beauty can come at a steep price. It would be impractical to have all your countertops made from marble, so we recommend dedicating a good chunk of the work surfaces of your kitchen to another material, such as laminate or even wood. With the right color of wood to match the marble, you can achieve a satisfying look that won’t break your bank.
Add a Few Industrial Elements
If you haven’t already, consider adding some stainless-steel countertops. These countertops are hygienic and have high resistance to heat, water, and stains. They can add an industrial element to your kitchen, especially when paired with a smooth surface material such as limestone. The combination of the two will make your kitchen feel cozy and functional at the same time.
