Details Make the Difference in Kitchen Remodeling

EspressoMakerWhen planning your kitchen remodeling project, you may look to the latest trends and innovations for inspiration, but you also want to be sure to create a space that expresses your unique vision. Well-considered details make the difference between a nice but ordinary kitchen and one that is truly spectacular and memorable. Here are some ideas for ways to make your personality shine through in your kitchen remodel:

Backsplashes: Once a purely functional feature, the kitchen backsplash has become a key focal point in kitchen design. The possibilities for self-expression are nearly endless. Backsplashes can be created from a variety of materials, each with its own distinct contribution to the aesthetics of a room: granite, marble, stainless steel and other metals, textured glass, ceramic tiles, mosaic and stone are just some of the choices today. Colorful hand-painted mosaic tiles, which add a one-of-a-kind artistic flair to the kitchen, are a trend we’ve recently seen growing in popularity.

Innovative Storage: One of the factors that will determine how much you enjoy your kitchen in the future is how easy it is to work in and use every day. The latest storage solutions embrace a sleek and practical functionality. Storage is being introduced everywhere in the kitchen, at levels that are more accessible for everyone. Pull-out pantries and cabinets create ease of use and a clean, seamless design at the same time. “Magic” corner cabinets slide and rotate to allow twice the customary space, while once ordinary cabinet drawers can be fitted with hyper-organized dividers to make finding the right cooking tool a breeze.

Cool Appliances: While energy-efficiency has become a leading concern for homeowners choosing new appliances, a focus on small luxuries has also taken a leading role. Appliances such as built-in wine refrigerators or espresso makers add that small touch of convenience and luxury to everyday living that makes you appreciate your kitchen remodel daily.

However you decide to plan your kitchen remodel, working with a professional designer you can find the ideal balance between personal expression and functionality so that your new kitchen is a room you treasure for many years to come!
