I am always getting emails from readers and online interior design service requests about kitchen renovations. The kitchen is, without a question, the space that gets the most attention and the biggest slice of your bank account during a renovation. Like I often tell my clients and my readers, you can’t start a kitchen reno without planning it carefully. I know we see many beautiful kitchens like this Transitional Kitchen we’re seeing today, but any kitchen renovation should start only after you have priced everything out, found a good interior designer and a trustworthy contractor. You should also identify a junk removal company to clear out the garbage that will undoubtedly be left behind due to the process.

When working on any kind of project, I make sure to help my clients with every decision for their home and when it comes to kitchens, I feel that it is extra necessary to have someone helping you make all the decisions because, honestly speaking, when it comes to a kitchen remodel you have many options to go with and every option, if not chosen right, can be very costly. Take for example the countertop. In many kitchen renovation pools, white marble is the first choice to appear as the most favorite choice. We, homeonwers and interior designers love white marble, but I like to think this is not always the best choice for some clients. The price can be an issue but also its convenience. You have to be open, and know that there are many other durable choices out there. The more you know about kitchen materials, the better chance you have to end up with a kitchen that not only looks beautiful but also works well for you.

This stunning kitchen shares some inspiring elements that I completely approve of. Backsplash always plays a big part in any kitchen style and this transitional kitchen features ceramic tiles by “Jeffrey Court” set in a classic herringbone pattern. The gray kitchen island brings a modern touch against the custom white cabinets, while a dramatic custom fridge/freezer cabinet make this kitchen feel sophisticated.

One important factor you must try to achieve when designing a kitchen is balance. A kitchen can have all the bell and whistles, but without balance, nothing can make a kitchen be appealing, not even a very expensive large piece of marble slab.

Take a good look at this great transitional kitchen and notice how everything flows perfectly together. Trust me, that’s the key with any kitchen design!

Seeing a beautiful kitchen is always refreshing! I like the kitchen I currently have because it has everything you could wish for, but I admit it’s not my dream kitchen. I haven’t designed it and I haven’t changed it much since we moved here six years ago. We are trying to move and I have promised myself to design the kitchen of my dreams in our new home. The one we have right now is a bit too traditional for my taste. I want something more “family-friendly” and more approachable. Changes I would be willing to do if we’re staying in this house, but since we’re moving I feel I should invest that money on the new house and actually enjoy it.

How about you? Are you living with your dream kitchen or wish you could change something in your kitchen?

  2. Melissa said,

    I love everything! Can you tell me who makes the dining room chandelier? Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. Hi Melissa,

    Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, I don’t have the source for the chandelier, but Restoration Hardware used to have something similar. Check it there and Ballard Designs as well. Another option is contacting the designer.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks again

    Are the lights above the island silver? I really want them!!! I wrote Stirling Industries and the 3 Light Globe With Crystal Pendant only comes in bronze. Do you know exactly which one you used? We are building a new home and this kitchen has been a huge inspiration!

  6. Hi Kristi.

    I looked online and found this similar product:

    Solaris 4 Light Chandelier Crystal Color: Clear Hand Cut, Finish: Olde Silver
    from Crystorama: http://www.amazon.com/Solaris-Light-Chandelier-Crystal-Color/dp/B008N03BLO

    See if they have the size you need.

    I hope this helps!
