The kitchen is often referred to as the “heart” of your home. It is a staple in every household, and serves a distinct and important purpose. It is the room where your family congregates to prepare food each day, and the place where your kids eat breakfast in the mornings and do homework after school. The kitchen is where you can find bowls of fresh fruit, frosty pitchers of lemonade, and apple pies cooling on window sills.
Your kitchen sets the tone for the entire home, which is why it’s important that it reflects your family’s personality and style. A Sacramento kitchen remodeling contractor can help you remodel a lackluster kitchen into a warm and inviting space that accommodates your unique needs and tastes. You’ll be amazed at how even the smallest changes can transform your kitchen and brighten up your whole home.

TITLE: Kitchen Design Ideas: How To Choose a Kitchen Style
NADIA GELLER: Hi, I’m Nadia Geller, interior designer for Homestyler. Today, I’m going to help you find the style of kitchen that’s right for you.
Start with the architecture of your home for cues. What style is it? I always recommend that you have hints of your home’s exterior on the inside. If your home is a Cape Cod, but you aren’t necessarily into that style for your décor, you can give it a nod by adding a subtle texture. For example, adding a beadboard to an island with a more modern countertop. This will help your whole home feel more put together.
Take a good look at the items throughout your home, too. Do you tend to choose more traditional furniture and accessories? Your kitchen should blend with the rest of your house.
An online design program can help you visualize your ideas. This one is Homestyler. It’s free, and it lets you preview your kitchen in a variety of styles.
With 3D, you can see what each style will look like with the rest of your home. Then, you can try every conceivable combination of styles. Look at them, compare—even get feedback from your friends and family online. You may just find some new great ideas.
Be sure to save all of your designs online. You never know when you’ll want to go back to something you thought of one day. You can even print them out for your design notebook.
Another tip I’d suggest is to think of a kitchen where you were really, really happy. Search your memory for details of that place. Was it a traditional ‘50s kitchen? Did it have ornate details like crown molding on all of the cabinetry?
Write down these details and then review magazines, and put sticky notes on the pages that give you a similar sense and feel.
Take note of the tiniest things around you. Maybe it’s a particular color of china or wallpaper. Or maybe it’s some flowers that stand out for you. These are all good clues to help you decide what you want.
Have fun creating your perfect kitchen! I’m Nadia Geller. To start designing your dream kitchen today, go to Homestyler.com.
