“For traditional kitchens, installing white Shrock cabinetry with Silestone tops in an edgy color seems to be cream of the crop these days. For a more contemporary feel, use GE Profile Series appliances with sleek lines coupled with espresso hand-scraped wood flooring to really streamline the kitchen.”

It’s fun to not always be predictable in the kitchen.  Experiment with mixing styles and adding an interesting element to the design to show your family’s personalities.”

It seems all traditional kitchens have bowls or trays of moss decor balls and an easy way to update this is to add artificial succulents tucked in between. In contemporary design, less can be more.  Using a dramatic piece of art glass as a statement piece on a kitchen island or counter can achieve this and draw the eye without having to compete with a lot of other elements.”

Kitchens are usually the most lived in space of our homes. Keep it organized using baskets and trays to organize collections. Ex) coffee pot, mugs, coffee, cream, sugar, etc.
