Design May 18, 2017. The first and foremost question that you need to address is why you are currently opting for a kitchen remodeling. There can be a variety of reasons, but most of them will include either cramped space, lack of smart storage options, reduced functionality and a look that is not trendy anymore. A culmination of these or even any one of the above should be enough for you to go for a remodeling that suits your needs. But remember that you need to convey what you are looking for to your designer, clearly, so that you get the results you want.
Design May 18, 2017. Unique designs are constantly emerging on the market, you only need to keep an eye out. Mammut floor kitchen hoods certainly look impressive, but you may require much more space to accommodate even one of those.
Design May 18, 2017. Gone are the days when the kitchen was filled with just polished plastic surfaces and design that was typical of the 90’s ‘cubicle’ trend. Modern kitchens are once again going down the classic route and textural contrast is back in style, big time! With that mind, designers are turning towards both wood and natural stone to provide the necessary contrast even while keeping the ergonomics refined and cutting-edge. Apart from the warmth of wood, it is the exquisite elegance of marble that seems to be the preferred choice as cutting-edge kitchen compositions are being selectively draped in marble.

Cabinets & Storages May 18, 2017. Engineered white quartz is durable and non-porous so it’s more sanitary and resists stains, scratches and corrosion. White concrete can achieve that pure white look and it’s also incredibly durable. White glass can be pricey, but in addition to being sleek and bright it’s also non-porous and perhaps the most hygienic option. If you’re on a budget, today’s laminates mimic more expensive granite and marble and also resist scratching and chipping.
Kitchen Backsplash May 18, 2017. While countertops, flooring and cabinets are generally places to keep it simple, the backsplash is a good place to inject some personal style, whether that’s with a mosaic feature or a bold color. And since that wall literally connects the countertops with the cabinets it’s also a place to tie everything together.
Kitchen Backsplash May 12, 2017. Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets.
