When you are installing custom kitchen cabinetry in your kitchen you would expect it to go well with the kitchen decor. Only after the entire decor of the kitchen is planned can the interior designer suggest for you a few cabinet designs that would go hand in hand with the decor. You can always pick up the design that you prefer the most from this collection. Everything from the material used to the size of the custom kitchen cabinets would be planned and designed in accordance to your choice.
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.
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.
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.
Designing your kitchen could be trusted with two groups of people, either the kitchen re-modelers or you could choose to employ a kitchen designer. However, the specifications of these two groups of people have a huge amount of difference, though they have some some similarities. Generally a kitchen designer will possess better kitchen knowledge in addition to having a wider selection of original layout tips for you new kitchen.
For kitchens that are small, finding space for storage can be a major problem. One of the best ways to keep a smaller kitchen organized is to build a walk-in pantry instead of using cabinets. Removing items that you hardly use can also make space for the things you do need in your kitchen. Countertops can differ in heights and this allows for visual variety and helps to maximize productivity. Vary your cabinet door styles to make your space more interesting; after all, your kitchen does not have to be uniform. Use one style of door for your wall cabinets and another style for the island. Or choose different cabinet colors or decorative finishes to add some interest.
