Your home kitchen needs a makeover every now and then. But contrary to what you probably think, you don’t need a professional designer from HGTV to remodel your kitchen. Instead, there are plenty of ideas available online, in magazines, on Pinterest, etc., to determine which style works best for your space. Refer to these five ideas to transform your basic kitchen into your dream designer kitchen.
Contemporary Classic Kitchen
If you’re like most people, you don’t want to change too much about your home kitchen. If you already have contemporary styles, you don’t need an elaborate remodel to blend your kitchen with both modern and classic features.
For example, to design a contemporary classic kitchen, add wood chairs, a solid hardwood floor, and beveled kitchen cabinets for a traditional style. Feature sleek bar stools, pendant lights, a white color scheme (complete with white subway tile backsplash), and recessed lighting for the most modern style to the kitchen of your dreams.
A Super-Sized Kitchen Island
Sometimes, you don’t need to worry about the kitchen cabinets or floors to transform your kitchen. Instead, consider the size of the island. Kitchen islands have many functions. For example, they offer more counter space for food preparation, as well as additional storage and seating.
Many designers are opting for super-sized kitchen islands, approximately five feet by nine feet. The island is the focal point of the room. If you have small children, there will be plenty of space available for everyone to gather around the island to help bake cookies or pizza.
If you love European styles, this is the kitchen for you. You’ll always feel like you’re preparing European feasts. But it’s easier than you think to remodel your kitchen to resemble the Victorian era.
With a large kitchen island, ironwork canopy ceiling, and black and brass stove and hood, you can have a standout kitchen that definitely won’t be cookie-cutter in your neighborhood. If you prefer to be bold and different, bring a little bit of Europe home to you.
Modern And Organic
Modern kitchens are popular trends, but you can always add more variety. With its fair share of modern styles, including the lighting, massive stove, and sleek bar stools, this kitchen offers plenty of natural, organic elements. This includes the kitchen cabinets, the backsplash, and oversized windows.
A kitchen is often the center of the home. It’s where families prepare meals. So, make sure your kitchen has a nice blend of modern and natural styles to feel “right at home.”
Country Rustic And Farmhouse Kitchen
Thanks to Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper, the country rustic and farmhouse home décor style has become the most popular trend for homes across the United States. Everyone loves to bring a little bit of country into their home, and that includes inside the kitchen.
For example, mount some aged, historic barn wood beams on the ceiling. Add a white farmhouse sink, large kitchen island, concrete countertops, and double wall oven. Finally, feature plenty of vintage décor items to transform your space into your grandmother’s kitchen.
