Top 3 Tips – Fashion vs. Function: The Never-Ending Duel

Read our top three tips to enhance your kitchen for both fashion and functionality!

Frequently, homeowners think that in order to have a fashionable and appealing kitchen, they need to sacrifice function. And, even though the need for more space is often a big motivation for kitchen remodeling, a new floor plan can often resolve most issues. The need for fashion and function, is what drove this new kitchen design into existence. As this traditional kitchen style shows, both looks and utility can work together to create a dream kitchen. Read our top three tips to enhance your kitchen for both fashion and functionality!

#1 – Rearrange – Adding Additional Space

Before the redesign, this kitchen had a lot of use by the owners. With many kids in and out of the house, the layout was no longer functional, though it desperately needed to be. In the early stages of designing, more space was necessary for the growing family. With some rearranging by our Design Team, the pantry was relocated to provide additional space, and the designing process began. With only a few key design choices our Design Team was able to create a new, beautiful open concept kitchen. Using these tips, you’ll be prepared to make plans and solve problems on your next kitchen redesign.  We’re here to help your kitchen reach its fullest potential!

#2 – Re-purposing – Creating Dual Functional Space

The next kitchen design tip is that custom islands can serve a dual purpose. For example, instead of shrinking the space with a dining table, the island in this kitchen serves as an informal dining area while also allowing ample storage space for the family. The Aria, a quartz countertop by Viatera®, provides durability and elegance with its intricate marbling and Bisque painting. To complete the look, the countertop is finished in a Pewter brushing.

#3 – Transform – Enhance the Look

The last tip is that new cabinet doors can transform the look of your kitchen. The French Villa cabinet doors add even more charm to this traditional-style kitchen. The Cherry wood, with an added Greystone stain, also enhances the look. For functionality, the grain of this wood offers forgiveness for things such as fingerprints. This means less cleaning: a welcomed concept by any busy family.
