There are a lot of factors to consider as you work on your new kitchen design. At Mission West Kitchen & Bath, we’re here to provide as much or as little guidance as you want. If you know exactly what you want, all you need to do is bring those ideas to us and we’ll make them a reality. On the other hand, if you’re not sure where to start, we can walk you through it. Here are six ideas that will get you started as you look for ways to ensure that your personality comes through on your final design.
Display your kitchen equipment
Use custom tile
Install different countertops
Utilize lighting to highlight your favorite things
Choose unexpected hardware
Art isn’t just for your living room
Do you have kitchen equipment that tells a story about you? Have you inherited bowls from your grandmother, or found a set of bowls at an antique store that really showcases your personality? If so, consider open cabinets. They can be used throughout the kitchen or just in one area. They help break up the look of solid cabinets and also let you display items that are personal to you.
If you haven’t looked at some of the custom tile options out there then you’re missing out. You don’t have to use it on your entire floor or counter, you can just have a feature area that has special colors or patterns you love.
You can bring in several countertop colors and styles that work together. For example, you might have a wood countertop with a section of shiny metallic countertop, or a pastry enthusiast may have a section of marble countertop that they only use for baking.
At Mission West Kitchen & Bath, we take lighting seriously and can follow your lead if you’d like a certain cabinet highlighted, or if you want personal items in front of glass with unique lights on them. Of course, your lighting can make a statement on its own: Chandeliers and pendant lights both work as focal points in kitchens.
The options in hardware for your kitchen are almost unending. When you work with experienced kitchen design specialists like Mission West Kitchen & Bath, we can help you navigate the numerous options to find exactly what you want. It’s so easily changed that it’s a great way to add unique flair that showcases your personality.
Art, whether a painting, pottery, or sculpture, is the perfect way to bring in another texture, color, pattern, or glimpse of your preferences into the kitchen. You can buy art from a professional artist you love, create a piece of your own, or even find special pieces at second hand stores.
At Mission West Kitchen & Bath, we look forward to helping you create a kitchen that’s uniquely you, totally functional, and indescribably beautiful.
