Kitchen Design 101: What You Should Know to Make a Fabulous Kitchen






Many of us, due to the obscene periods of isolation imposed upon us by our governments as a consequence of the SARS-CoV-19 virus, have turned to interior designers. We have begun repainting and redecorating throughout our homes, changing old features, and adding new ones. Interior design can be very uplifting and redecorating your home can be a fantastic way to alleviate some of the burden of isolation and the depression and anxiety that it causes. Redesigning your kitchen can be a lot of fun, providing you have the financial backing, and the means to carry out your redecorations. This page will hope to tell you what you should know about making your kitchen fabulous. This page will also discuss the fundamental aspects of what will make your kitchen gorgeous – three main points: flooring, appliances, and lighting.

5 Mistakes I Made While Renovating My Kitchen

This summer, I embarked on a soup-to-nuts kitchen renovation..for the first time in my life. I hand-drew a floor plan to scale, ripped out tile and hacked down cupboards, and product sourced everything from our custom cabinet makers (a friend of a friend) to our backsplash tile (a Wayfair score!). Am I obsessed with my tiny jewel of an apartment kitchen? Heck, yes. Did I make a boatload of beginner mistakes along the way? You betcha. I’m sharing them here so you can avoid them.

I found a gorgeous, long Calacatta marble subway tile which I thought would be the next best thing to a pricey, single-slab backsplash. The problem? Both the

More time at home means more opportunity for you to design your personal kitchen, bath :: WRAL.com

Every year we consider the colors and styles homeowners are gravitating towards when personalizing their new home kitchen and baths. The 2020 season, more so than ever, has given us the most poignant glimpse into how everyday living can affect our design choices. 

The global pandemic we continue to experience has resulted in families spending more time at home, altering both their needs and wants with regards to aesthetics, technology, innovative design options and energy-saving features.  

Buyers may have also found a little extra time to spend on Pinterest or watching HGTV to get inspired on the design of their new home.

“I have buyers that come in after months of being stuck at home with social distancing/COVID restrictions and they have learned what they don’t like,” said Rachel Anne Phelps, design consultant for Drees Homes.  “Through staying home,

‘There are lots of appliances in the island’: Lauren takes us through her brand new kitchen in Co Meath

FROM THE VERY beginning of her kitchen design journey, Lauren Harte knew exactly what she wanted.

“I had a very clear vision in my head,” says Lauren, who moved into her new home in Mornington, Co Meath with her boyfriend in April. 

“We were aware that there wasn’t much wall space, so we wanted to make use of the storage and get as much as we could into the island. We have a microwave, dishwasher, bin and sink all in the island.”

As well as maximising storage space, Lauren wanted her range cooker to be a focal point of the room. “My boyfriend is a chef, so cooking is a really big part of our lives. We wanted to make a feature of the range cooker with a really nice canopy.”

Kimberlee Melcher had her dream studio in Spokane not once, but twice, early in her interior design career with her contractor-husband Kevin Melcher under the moniker Downtown Kitchen & Design, and then again in 2014.

“We opened our first design showroom in 2001 renovating an old historic building, creating display kitchen vignettes with working appliances and using the space for trade events and hosting client parties,” says Melcher.

But things change, and within a few years of rebranding under Kimberlee Kristine, Melcher closed the downtown studio and decided to fashion the company’s new design studio closer to home. Her home.
