Amazing Kitchen Designs

Amazing Kitchen Designs

We have been in the Kitchen Cabinet business for over 35 years, from installations to owning my own factory. In that time, we have learned from seeing or making many mistakes. Here are some of the highlights that, although there have been many changes, still hold true: 

Longevity.

If you are planning on selling your home in the next few years, that may reflect in your purchasing decisions. It is still possible to have an amazing kitchen even if your goals are short term, but knowing the difference is key. It will be helpful to be sitting with a Kitchen designer who is able to expand on the options that will meet your budget. 

Don’t over-design

Not only can these translate into a high price, it may be visually uninviting. Depending on the size of your kitchen, you may want to plan how many eye catching features should be included. In the typical kitchen, one main feature will suffice. 

Traffic Flow and Lifestyle Considerations

With your designer, make sure you’re happy from a birds eye view of how the flow integrates with your home and your habits. 

Colors

With your designer, you can work through the concepts of matching, contrasting or complimenting the existing or new colours in your home. This really can make all the difference in the world. For most of us, this is a difficult area, so working with a trained eye is well worth the investment. 

Renovation Impact

It is rare to see a clean in and out Kitchen renovation. Likely you will need to consider additional things such as flooring, paint, electrical, plumbing, and ceiling changes. In a major rebuild you may also need to consider, framing, windows, drywall, insulation and possible structural needs.
