5 Unforgettable Kitchen Ideas

Making your kitchen more memorable can often be boiled down to a few key style decisions incorporated into an overall, well-designed kitchen space. Here are 5 design elements that will not only boost your own personal satisfaction with your kitchen design – but are sure to also stick in the minds of guests, family members and friends.

 

  • 1. Exposed Beams
  • The use of natural wood tones in the kitchen creates a rich, authentic design appeal. Exposed wooden beams or unique ceiling architecture – such as this above island platform seen in this Toll Brothers home – make a bold statement.

  • 2. Bold Cabinet Color
  • Create unexpected punch by coating your kitchen island with a fresh, bright hue. Whether its sea foam green to portray a coastal sensation or a rich blue for a baroque-inspired space – paint is a low-cost solution that can make a big difference.

  • 3. Two-Toned Color Scheme
  • A hot trend in interior design, two-toned cabinet colors invite inhabitants to admire the architecture and design of your kitchen cabinetry. Even subtle differences in color – such as the gray and white combination used in this kitchen by Studio Thomas – significantly elevate the style of the space.

  • 4. Chandeliers
  • No longer are glamorous chandeliers reserved for the formal dining room. Positioning a dual display of dazzling chandeliers above an island speaks to a higher level of luxury. Mix with more casual design elements for a beautiful and livable effect.

  • 5. Backsplash to the Ceiling
  • A unique backsplash commands attention in a thoughtful kitchen design. Create a greater impact by extending the backsplash to the ceiling. Unite your kitchen color scheme in an intricate tile pattern for a bold look.
