Kitchen stove and tile

As Product Manufacturers fuse function with style

      Kitchen design has become a peek into the future with appliances and hardware that not only accommodate multiple cooks, but also create a state-of-the-art room for the whole family to enjoy. When you think of your kitchen, you probably see it as the center for your family. This is not ignored by us, as more companies are using technology of futuristic components and furniture-quality hardware you can create a stunning combination through-out the kitchen.

      Kitchens aren’t a room for just cooking anymore, they now act as a home to computers, flat-screened televisions, commercial-grade appliances and temperature-controlled wine coolers not to mention lots of other amenities. Families and friends are now spending more time in the kitchen than ever, they want a room that is as elegantly as other formal rooms. Designing and planning any room can be a daunting task if your planning is not done well. The first rule in kitchen design is determining your budget, style and preferences. As a prospective homebuilder or remodeler you should start with a Project Planner . Because it’s not just a room for cooking, but rather a place for homework and entertaining, families are finding that they hang around more in the kitchen than any other room. The key is a good plan.

      Determining your style, first consider your personality. How are you going to use the kitchen? Do you like a room that is open and big enough for several people? Are you someone who needs two sinks? lots of counter-space for food preparation? Do you have a Project Planner? These initial questions will help you when picking out your materials, preparing an estimate, and determining a look that reflects you.

      Popular design techniques are using your geographic region’s flair. The warm colors of the Southwest frequently find their way into the kitchen, and coastal dwellers tend to implement tropical colors to reflect their location. Nature also influences color schemes to include aquatic blues, yellows and greens. Don’t be afraid to use color. Implementing color into your tile and walls, as well as rich coloring in countertops and flooring, livens up the kitchen in an entirely different way. By combining stunning appliances with furniture-grade cabinetry, theme back splashes with tiles, the kitchen now becomes the first room you want to show off.

      Bringing color to the kitchen is a popular trend, so are commercial-looking kitchens. Consumers want their kitchens to look and feel like professional kitchens, but still function like ones in which they grew up. The sleek appearance not only implies durable materials, but also conveys a modern style that was previously unattainable in the home. While popular for some time, stainless-steel appliances were expensive and difficult to coordinate with other furniture and accessories. Today, however, stainless steel is the biggest thing to hit kitchens since the toaster.

      As more and more consumers embrace a futuristic look, companies are responding by designing large ranges, refrigerators, custom countertops and cabinetry. Complementing a stainless-steel appliance is no longer a hassle, but rather an exciting design process.
