On Trend Kitchens

With summer’s departure we are powering down the grill and returning to the kitchen. These design tips, courtesy of AyA Kitchens and Baths, are sure to create a space that’s hot, hot, hot.

Mix Cabinetry

A mix of cabinet materials creates a dynamic setting for cooking and entertaining. “We’re seeing wood become prevalent in the home for the upcoming season because of it’s warm, natural and timeless esthetic. Wood also complements white kitchens very well,” says Dave Marcus, President, AyA Kitchens and Baths.

Soften Traditional

Traditional interiors continue to benefit from the addition of a couple of well-placed contemporary elements. In this handsome kitchen, the upholstered barstools contrast the light cabinetry. Notice the slimmer countertop profile—something we’ll see more of in the next few years.

Dabble Savvy: The darker the floor, the more formal the space.

Rustic Roast

Industrial elements  such as stainless steel and metal are softened and enhanced by contrasting with raw wood.  The yin and yang keep the look fresh.

Cooking with Colour

White may be the most popular choice for kitchen cabinets but it’s far from the only choice. Why not cut loose and show some real personality with a bold choice like this red?

Hidden Function

When the in-laws come over, keep them guessing? Does she even own a toaster oven?
Dabble Savvy: Have a professional electrician install all appliances and outlets. Those hidden from view often require additional shut off valves for safety.

Snow White Kitchen

Issue-1-Home-Tour-Erin-Valencich-copy

We love this all white kitchen designed by LA’s Erinn Valencich. The curvy counter and mirrored mosaics are a playful counterpoint to the handsome lines of the cabinetry and sliding doors.

Question: Does an all-white kitchen work in climates where there’s snow on the ground for 4-6 months of the year?
