There’s Something Special about a Blank Slate
The all white kitchen never goes out of style. It’s also the easiest to keep trendy and updates quickly with fresh furniture and accent pieces. You can keep the minimalistic design for as long as you’d like or make wild shift down the line with bright new bar stools or countertop appliances.
Notice how much the tiled backsplash adds to the look without the need to shift colors.
Discover Real Beauty in the Warmth of Mother Nature
Choosing a color palette based off natural hues is a great way to make your kitchen as relaxing as it is functional. But going full au naturale means implementing a variety of materials to blend with the subtle tones and finish off the ambiance.
The combination of wood floors and stone wall covering gives off the impression that this gourmet kitchen belongs in an upscale mountain lodge more than a primary residence.
It’s truly incredible how just a few simple elements that remind us of the outdoors can completely alter the way a room makes us feel.
The mosaic tile on the breakfast bar is a nice touch, too. In fact, adding texture with tile is a fantastic design move for virtually any space.

Simple Tips for Personalizing Your New Kitchen
Piecing together the kitchen of your dreams is exciting but there are a few guiding principles to follow along the way:
- Attend design studio preview sessions to become more familiar with options & upgrades before it’s time to make any final decisions.
- Don’t be afraid to select design vignettes you like. At the design studio you’ll see plenty of examples professionally matched to work well together. If you fall in love with a pre-packaged combo, don’t feel like you have to mix it up “just because.”
- Look at all available materials before making a final decision.
- If you plan to install “smart” appliances down the road, it may make more sense to go ahead and upgrade now. Same goes for cabinets.
- Do lots of research online. Many first-time home buyers say that they don’t know what their style truly is. You discover it by looking for it. And when you find an image of the kitchen of your dreams, simply click ‘save’ or ‘print.’
