You are almost done with your kitchen renovation. Finally, you will have the beautiful kitchen of your dreams, with modern kitchen cabinets and efficient pantry shelving. But don’t forget the little finishing touches for your perfect home kitchen design.
When designing a new kitchen or renovating an older kitchen, it is easy to overlook storage. After all, storage areas are often unseen – pantry shelving and little nooks and crannies for our favorite kitchen gadgets and silverware. But don’t forget to consider your workflow and storage needs when designing. Be sure that you have plenty of room to store pantry items, kitchenware, pots and pans, and even your blender. Speak with your contractor about how you can maximize your space.
Many times homeowners will forget about the backsplash. This tiny detail is an easy way to imprint your taste and unique style in your home. There are so many incredibly trendy and popular options for backsplashes today. Choose from a contemporary tiled look to a fun and crazy pattern. Use recycled materials for a truly unique look or opt for something more traditional.
Does your kitchen say anything about YOU? If not, add a few special knick-knacks and pictures that say a little something about your style and your personality. For example, maybe you love Paris? Then head to a thrift shop and purchase a few little items to remind you of Paris. Or maybe you have a penchant for Latin American cooking, your family history, or even just love flowers. Add photos, porcelain figures, unique kitchen items, and trendy colorful napkins and floral arrangements to make your kitchen uniquely you.
These are just a few ways to add some personal last finishing touches to your kitchen design. They are simple and fun, letting you share your taste and personal style with friends and family.
