Do you have a kitchen that needs an overhaul? Maybe you need help with the design or renovations. We love to help my clients by sharing ideas or ways they can do updates on their own.
Many clients are excited about getting to the design process because they have followed some of their favorite interior designers online and the end product is amazing. Or maybe they have their favorite designer in mind when they are finally making the leap to build and design their home.
We have seen a lot of transformations and new kitchens over the years and many trends change while some staples remain the same. So we will share a little of our process to help them get started. The first thing we do is ask them to provide us pictures of their top 3 kitchens and tell me why they like them.
Once we have an understanding of my client’s tastes and what they like, I can present other options that they may be interested in. I can show them options for backsplashes, flooring, or countertops they may not have considered before.
Here is what we normally discover:
Color Combo is often at the top of their list. A few years ago everyone wanted a white kitchen, but now those trends changed. Now we are seeing more dark kitchen cabinetry paired with neutral tones.
Bright Space Grey cabinets with neutral-toned countertops are the perfect example of the new trends we are seeing. These cabinets look updated and beautiful but don’t have the upkeep that an all white kitchen may require.
Those who still love white kitchen cabinets are sprucing up their spaces with backsplashes that have a pop of color or different patterns. This adds visual interest against the brightness of the cabinets.
There are many different options when it comes to a backsplash. From adding visual interest, a pop of color, or cohesiveness to the design of your kitchen, you have a great deal of room for creativity available.
Flooring, especially in Florida needs special consideration. Not only does it need to complete the look of your kitchen, but it also needs to be durable. In Florida homes, you want to share options that are going to last with water intrusion and are durable.
Those are key factors because of the amount of foot traffic and potential hurricane or storm damages that may happen. Tile Flooring with a look of Wood is the most popular.
