Bombarded with so many images of perfect home kitchens on our TV screens, in the pages of magazines, and on the screens of our computers, it’s easy to forget one important fact—in the end, a perfect kitchen is a kitchen that is right for you.
While you can certainly pull inspiration from design sites, your friends, and Sacramento design contractors, in the end, your kitchen should be designed in a way that reflects your personality and accommodates your needs. For instance, if you are a busy parent with many hungry, energetic youngsters, an ornamental kitchen with lots of glass fixtures might not be the best option. If you are a professional chef, you may not be able to accomplish everything you like within the confines of a small kitchen with traditional appliances.
A Sacramento kitchen remodeling contractor can help you remodel your kitchen, working with you to design a kitchen that suits your unique personality, tastes, and needs.
For some ideas on designing a kitchen that reflects your family’s individual style, watch the video below.
SACRAMENTO KITCHEN DESIGN IDEAS VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:
TITLE: Designing a Kitchen with Individual Style
NARRATOR: Home magazines are a great place to find inspiration for a new kitchen. But remember, those spaces were all created for someone else. To create a more personal space that you can truly call your own, it’s important to incorporate ideas that match not only your home style, but also your lifestyle.
Think about how space flows with the rest of your home, and take a realistic look at how you use your kitchen. After all, a great looking professional range may not be the best investment if you’re someone who spends more time ordering takeout. And why take up space displaying a wine collection when your real passion is a cookie jar collection. Take this loft style kitchen for example. This compact, efficient space may have felt cramped with a traditional layout, but by placing the large refrigerator around the corner, the homeowners freed up more room for cooking and entertaining.
If your kitchen is open to the living area like this space, you’ll want to choose materials that combine function and beauty. This DuPont Corian solid surface countertop has all the durable performance benefits you’d expect from Corian. And it gives the space an extra dash of style. Colors like Sorrel add extra interest by catching the light and creating a sense of movement when viewed from different angles. In fact, with over 150 colors of Corian and Zodiac, there are endless ways to express your style. You can even mix surfaces in the same kitchen.
There are many ways to infuse your kitchen with personality, and your choices say a lot about you. Obviously, the person who incorporated this convenient pot filler into their backsplash is much different from the person who selected these small inconspicuous appliances.
In this large kitchen, an island topped with a DuPont Zodiac quartz surface creates an expansive, continuous work surface. And this island does triple duty as a prep, cleanup, and eating area. A large family is probably running a full dishwasher after every meal. They may even want two to make entertaining easier. But another couple may find that two dishwasher drawers give them more flexibility and energy savings.
Remember, no two people are the same, and no two people have the same perfect kitchen. Look for materials and solutions that really suit you and your family. It makes the difference between having a “me too” kitchen and a kitchen you can really call your own.
