Modernizing your kitchen

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Don’t think about the past, think about the future. This approach is what should be taken when renovating your kitchen. You want a design that will stand out; one that will be pulling you into the kitchen instead of steering you away from it.

Here are a few tips on how to move your kitchen into the modern world

Hanging lights

There’s nothing that says modern like extravagant lighting fixtures. If your kitchen island is long, 3 hanging lights with large lamp shades evenly distributed above the surface will make a statement that your guests won’t forget. Small kitchen islands will be uplifted by a single, unique hanging light positioned in the center.

Dark wood cabinets

Dark wood cabinets are great for more reasons than one. Not only do the look extraordinarily chic, but they also hide stains very well. It goes without saying that opting for darker cabinets will have your kitchen looking both impeccable and impeccably clean. This, however, may not be the best idea for smaller kitchens as the darker the additions, the smaller the space will seem, but for larger kitchens dark cabinets are perfection at its best.


Every modern kitchen needs a natural stone countertop. Whether granite or marble, slate or limestone, by choosing natural stone you won’t only be opting for a durable addition to your kitchen, you’ll be opting for something that looks great. You’ll still, however, want to ensure that things are uniformed and thus, it is imperative the countertops perfectly complement your cabinets.


This is where things can really get creative. It is, however, just up to you to step out of the box and explore the options you have. Many people don’t realize just how much of an effect flooring has on the overall kitchen until everything’s in place. Natural stone tiles like marble are perfect for a modern kitchen.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel appliances are the ideal way to finish off a modern kitchen. It’s one of those additions that subtly highlights a room which is perhaps what makes it so great. There’s literally no modern kitchen design that won’t welcome stainless steel with open arms and thus, selecting stainless steel appliances for your kitchen will be exceptionally easy.

Glass fixtures

Additional pieces like a glass wine rack or perhaps a glass cabinet for dishes also go well in kitchens that take on a modern style. Of course, with such a feature, you will want to make certain that your organization game is on point.


Planning your dream kitchen

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

The moment that you’ve made the decision to knock out the old cupboards and cabinets, rid yourself of that unsightly kitchen island and revamp your kitchen, your level of excitement will surely surge. You’ll be filled with ideas and your fingers won’t stop flipping through home improvement magazine pages in pursuit of your dream kitchen. However, before your wallet starts to relieve itself of your hard earned cash, you need to take a step back and think ‘practical’. It’s easy to settle on a design that just completely captivates you but before you get to purchasing, it is essential that proper planning is done. Having done so, you may realize that you’ll need to cut down on some of the features your selected design boasts or perhaps you’ll want to switch to a completely new design. This doesn’t mean that there isn’t the possibility that the design you had selected will be 100% perfect. If it is, you’ll at least give yourself the necessary reassurance and rid yourself from the possibility of regret.

What will work best in your home.

The overall style of your home can dictate just what designs will work well in your kitchen. While thisĀ  may not be the case for a closed off kitchen, it sure is for an open plan kitchen. When you’re dealing with a kitchen that opens into your living room, synchronization is essential. This doesn’t mean that you’ll have to create the same feel throughout your entire home, however, the designs need to complement each other.

Space is another point that can not and should not be forgotten. Take proper measurements and ensure that the cabinets, kitchen island, and counter you decide on won’t have your kitchen looking overly crowded.


Refurbishing a kitchen isn’t a task that’s light on the pockets. As a result, you’ll want to ensure that the design you opt for is both modern and timeless. This will prevent you from frowning upon your kitchen in a few months because the style you had chosen has gone off the radar. This isn’t to say that a splash of personality shouldn’t be tossed into the mix. After all, the aim is to have kitchen that you’ll not only love today, but also love tomorrow. Be creative with the back splash or offer your kitchen a counter top with a wow factor.


‘Up’ isn’t the only way that you’ll be looking when in your kitchen. The same is true for your guests. The tiles you choose is just as important as the cabinets. However, this is a place where you can really think out of the box and unleash the designer within you.
