How to Find Your Ideal Kitchen Style
When it comes to choosing the style of you kitchen, you have plenty of options. From French country to art deco, craftsman to rustic European, there are endless kitchen styles you can incorporate into your remodel. And the best part is that you get to choose exactly what you want the style to be in your newly updated kitchen.
A lot of people know what their style is before starting a remodel, but many people need help deciding how they want their kitchen to look. Maybe you want a specific design, or perhaps you want to fuse together a few elements to create a whole new style. At Plush Design, we can help you find that ideal kitchen style so that your entire kitchen has the appearance that reflects your personal lifestyle.
When trying to determine what your ideal kitchen style is, here are a few tips to follow.
Do Some Research
Before you start a remodel, find some pictures of remodeled kitchens that you like. Utilize tools like Houzz, Pinterest or even HGTV to get inspired and pinpoint what you like. It might not be the exact kitchen you want, but pick out the elements that you like, such as the tile backsplash, light fixtures or cabinet colors. Decide what parts you want to incorporate into your new space and create your own unique style.
Fusing these styles together is easier said than done. Our designers will help you combine these elements to create a cohesive design you love. We can always walk you through our showroom to show you the specific materials we offer, but it makes the process a lot quicker if you have a few ideas in mind beforehand.
Determine What You Don’t Like
Sometimes the easier way to figure out what you like is to first find out what you don’t like. When you do research to determine how you want to style your kitchen, look at what elements you don’t like and take note of those as well. Don’t just look at a kitchen design and say you dislike the entire style. Instead, figure out what specifically you want to keep out of your own remodel.
Maybe you aren’t a fan of the contrast of the colors, or perhaps the floors aren’t your favorite. This will help you and your designer come up with a style that is closer to what you are looking for. Additionally, think about what you want to change about your current kitchen, in both style and functionality. Think of this as the “constructive criticism” of your research.
Consider Other Elements of your Home
Although a kitchen remodel is a great way to freshen up your space, you might way to keep in mind what the style of the rest of your home is. Perhaps you love the look of a rustic Italian villa, but if the rest of your house carries a nautical, beachy theme with white trim and dark floors, you might want to rethink that rustic Italian style. Remember that it’s ok to appreciate a style and not have it in your home.
You want your house to flow from one space to the next, which is why you should keep in mind what the surrounding rooms look like. That being said, you don’t have to keep the exact same style throughout your entire home if you don’t want to. Find simple ways to carry a theme, such as continuation of colors, flooring or décor.
Finding the perfect style might not be as easy as you think when you have so many options. But with a little research and the help of the knowledgeable Plush Designs staff, we can help you find the exact kitchen style you’ve been searching for.
