Designing a kitchen that you will love for years to come can be a daunting task for homeowners. Determining the overall look you want for your kitchen requires some homework and often consultation with an expert. Our kitchen showroom in Langley has everything you need to build or renovate your kitchen or bathroom into the space that you have always wanted.
The age of your home can often be easily distinguished by the style and finishes of your kitchen and it can bring the most value to your home when renovated. Choosing colours and finishes that you will be happy with requires careful care and consideration. Here are 5 steps to help you design a kitchen that you will love for years to come:
- Start collecting photos, materials and finishes that you like. Take the time to do your homework to help you define your personal style. Pinterest and Houzz are two places to start collecting imagery of styles of kitchens, different finishes and inspirational interiors.
- Find expert advice. If you have an eye for colour and design, then create a moodboard or finishes board to take along with you when you shop. But if you are not savvy in this area, find an expert designer, decorator or kitchen specialist, to help guide you.
- Consider what you really love. If you love dark brown cabinetry but your designer is telling you that you should go with cream, then consider their advice carefully. You can always hire another expert for a second opinion, which will be less costly than installing a kitchen with finishes that you do not absolutely love, and changing it again in a few years.
- Remember the other elements in your space when choosing your kitchen cabinets. Your floors, adjacent spaces and natural light are just a few of the things that come into the kitchen equation. If you are choosing cabinets to work with existing flooring that may not be there for as long as your kitchen will be, then this needs to be considered. When in doubt, a designer or kitchen expert from our Langley showroom can help you to map out a plan for your custom kitchen cabinets.
