For those who do find appliances to be eye soars, there are panels that you can install to hide these appliances so they blend in with the rest of the cabinetry. Just make sure the panels match your cabinets. For items that you can't really hide, like your stovetop, using a raised ledge or breakfast bar on your island or kitchen peninsula can help hide the stove. If you are going with double ovens installing one or both ovens into your island will help make sure that oven is out of view. An easy way to also help hide your appliances is to buy stainless steel. Stainless steel appliances reflect the color of their surroundings, and since the material is neutral these appliances are often much less noticeable. In addition, they add a higher end look to any kitchen.
Prepare a sketch of the designs and items that you would like to add to your kitchen. Having a sketch to work with is always a lot easier. You can also prepare rough drafts from which the interior decorator can work on. If you are aware of your needs and requirements from your kitchen, you can communicate with the interior decorator better. This would enable him/her to plan a remodeling that would fit well in to your concept of a dream kitchen. Do not forget to mention your kitchen remodeling budget since this would help the professional to plan a realistic budget.
Materials: As we all know, there has been a significant move towards eco friendly and reclaimed materials in recent years. Expect to see reclaimed wood being used as a feature, especially in high end kitchens, even creeping in to modern and contemporary kitchens to add an earthy feel.
One of the greatest challenges is choosing a reputable contractor, unless of course you decide to do it yourself. The right contractor will make this difficult process as easy as possible. With a little research you should be able to find the right kitchen remodeling contractor. For some suggestions read Tips For Choosing a General Contractor. Whether you have a large kitchen or one with limited space, you should always try to make every inch count to maximize functionality. Once you have your kitchen space planned out the other challenge in remodeling your kitchen is to not only choose good materials and colors for it but also create a lively interior that incorporates appliances and cabinets with structural elements.
Shape: What we really mean here is the use of curves or straight lines in kitchen design. Curves are most significant in classical and traditional kitchens, where softer edges is the key trend. Curves are also popular in modern style kitchens while for a contemporary look, sleek sharp lines will stay in vogue. Contemporary kitchens need sharp lines to distinguish themselves from even modern kitchens, with slimline worktops and end panels adding that finishing touch.
What about colour? Well what we are seeing is that the range of colours now being offered in kitchens has grown hugely over the last year. Designers and homeowners are becoming more adventurous when choosing cabinet colours with many now opting for subtle colours, especially in contemporary and modern designs. Subtle colours could be in the way of gloss or matt doors in a modern kitchen or even warm wood textures. Of course, mixing both paint colours and wood textures is a massive trend at the moment and is only going to gain in popularity. For classical and traditional kitchen styles, off white painted kitchens are still popular but other bolder colours are coming through, especially when mixed with softer colours. For solid wood kitchens, oak and walnut are still going to be as popular as ever.
