Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

 

When it comes to home improvements, kitchen remodeling usually tops the popularity list. Even during times of economic problems and falling house prices, an updated kitchen always adds value. However, any kitchen update must be in keeping with the style of the house and the neighborhood. A huge, professionally equipped kitchen in an extension that covers the back garden of a small suburban house is probably not a good idea. Once you have improved your kitchen, though, do make sure that you get reliable home and contents insurance that reflects your home’s increased value.

Appliances
Minimalism remains an enduring trend for kitchen redesign, as we’re seeing from some of today’s most innovative builders. The idea is to have sleek, clean lines for surfaces that conceal appliances. Such concealment was restricted once to cabinets, fridges and washing machines. Today, it includes smaller appliances as well as the larger ones. Built-in wall ovens and induction cooktops are some of the most popular options. But why not also try built-in coffee machines, steam ovens and warming drawers?

All of the appliances may be covered by panels that match seamlessly around the kitchen space. Stainless-steel panels have become ubiquitous for this task. If you are tired of looking at steel, or have problems keeping it clean and shiny, try a colored resin surface or even some wood veneers. Cherry and maple finishes have been popular for some years. Although the trend has been towards darker finishes for kitchen panels, light oak and even bamboo are making a return in popularity.

It’s important to ensure that lighting is directed at the appliances, as well as illuminating the whole kitchen space. Decorative lighting that draws attention to the kitchen décor is an increasingly popular trend. LED lighting has become a firm favorite because of its flexibility for use in intricate spaces, as well as its energy efficiency. It uses only one quarter of the energy required by an incandescent bulb for the same amount of light.

Customized Units
Kitchen islands that double as tables have been around for years. The latest trend is for floating units that you can position anywhere in the kitchen space. Try personalizing countertops rather than buying the most expensive ones in granite, which is a stone that perhaps looks better in graveyards and municipal buildings than in a kitchen. Design or build your own countertops and embed pastry slabs or butchers’ blocks within them. Add a few more decorations with colored glass.

Glass is becoming more popular as a surface material around cooktops and especially for backsplashes. It’s a stronger material than ceramic tiles and cheaper than cut stone.

Pull-out taps have also become very popular, for saving on water use and space. Householders need to check that their plumbing is adapted correctly when installing new taps of this kind, however. Remember also to check that your home insurance covers all of your kitchen improvements.

    BEAUTIFUL kitchens. Isn’t that pantry nice and organized with the microwave in it?

  3. Missi Smith at havoc-to-heaven.com said,

    These kitchens are gorgeous! After just finishing my kitchen, I am always so interested in what the trends are currently. I am very happy with my new kitchen – I think the only thing I would change would be that I would have used kitchen wire in the open cabinets instead of glass.

    Hope all is well my friend! xoxo

    these kitchens are stunning. Love the fresh white with the dark wood floors!

    I’m not a real trendy person but I love these kitchens. I really like that kitchen nook with the stools. I think every kitchen should have a spot no matter how small tto drink your coffee in peace.

    Sorry I haven’t been about but I’ve been beyond busy with my work lately. I hope you enjoy your Sunday!
