Tips for Your Calgary Kitchen -
Don't Always follow the latest trend
As a home owner, you might be tempted to follow certain trends in kitchen design. However, there are certain kitchen trends which you would be better off not following.
Let us look at some of them.
A previous popular trend that you should maybe avoid is installing the microwave over the cooker. Many builders used it because it was seen to save space. The main problem with doing that is accessibility and it makes it difficult for short individuals, children and the disabled to use their microwave. A more ideal place to put it is under the counter.
Another older trend was putting pot racks over the island in your kitchen. It is better to store away pots and pans in drawers than go for pot racks. With the pot racks gone there is more of an open feel to the kitchen.
Also it is better to go for warm neutral finishes. Not only do such finishes look good, they will never go out of fashion.
Brass kitchen hardware looks great. However, if you want a more ‘modern’ feel, it would be better to go for satin or brushed nickel finish on your hardware.
A good kitchen has a combination of smart design and high-quality materials. Whether it’s building a new kitchen or renovating an existing kitchen take your time. Don’t make the kitchen too dark with dark floors, dark granite and dark units. Keep it light, fresh, open, and a joy to be in.
Remember white cabinets are making a comeback! Just don’t cheap out on the modern hardware.
Enjoy where everyone gathers at parties!
