Today’s kitchen resembles a living room, so add the look of custom furniture when remodeling by incorporating a storage pantry or hutch into your design with its own unique door style and finish.
Add furniture legs or a decorative base moulding with matching end panels. Choose hardware like jewelry, to complete the look.
Hardware and accessories are starting to see a shift towards warm metal tones such as brass or gold. We may have thought this trend was left behind in the 80s but the styles that we are seeing now are far different from your grandmother’s brass. In current styles with clean edges and modern shapes, these warm tones are bringing timeless style to modern design. Use brass on colored cabinetry for traditional or modern style. On white cabinetry, use the brass to achieve a glam look.

For a successful renovation, it’s essential that you evaluate your current kitchen. Remodeling a kitchen isn’t just about making it pretty. What looks good on television, in a magazine, or online is mostly about the “look” of the materials, and sometimes about the work flow.
All of this is intended to inspire you to make changes. But you need to focus on how you use the working areas and storage in your own home. What do you like, or not like about the current amount of counter space, storage space, and traffic flow?
Find a designer that you are comfortable with. For most people a kitchen project is not something that they’ll be doing again any time soon, so be sure that you are working with someone that’s really going to listen to your wants and needs and be able to advise you on the many options available in today’s market.
The last thing you’ll want when you’re done is to look back and wish that you had done something differently or known about another product option that may have suited you better.
