Use shades of grey to up the elegance

As many moviegoers likely know, there are at least 50 shades of grey in existence. However, we can take you beyond the hype of said movie and create a color palette using shades of grey that you’ll be excited about for years to come.

Technology is moving rapidly and in the direction of convenience and automation. We feel incorporating new technology into any kitchen remodel is a ‘smart’ move. We can work with you to find out where this type of upgrade could have the most significant impact on you and your family. Some options for smart kitchen technology include; motion sensing faucets, refrigerators which can warn you when food is running low or lighting systems controlled from your mobile or tablet.

Quartz is still king

We’re hoping you read our article ‘Quartz: A great kitchen design idea‘ by now (but if not, here’s your chance). We were onto using quartz as a home renovation trend that will last a year ago, and not much has changed. Quartz is still at the very top of our list when selecting countertop material – extreme hardy, non-porous, easy to maintain, and anti-microbial. As well, new technology is pushing the limitations on design and patterns giving more variety or mimicking natural stone.

Dark flooring, white (or light) cabinets

Kitchen Renovation Design Trends - Home Renovation Trends - Kitchen Renovation Trends - Winnipeg Kitchen Design - HammerdownIf you’re opting for light colored cabinetry and walls, we suggest using dark flooring. This home renovation trend will help increase the coziness of the room and tie all of the other elements together.

Black is the new stainless steel

Many appliance manufacturers are ditching the all stainless steel look for black stainless steel finish. We suggest hop aboard this home renovation trend and do the same. Having the contrast between the light colored cabinets and countertop with use of the black appliances can give you a room that demands your attention. Not sold on black? Head out to your local appliance store and see what other colors may pique your interest.

Don’t forget about your fur-baby

Our pets are part of the family. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, why not design an area perfect for them. They will love being close to you in a space they can call their own, while you create your favorite dishes or are relaxing with a glass of wine or cup of hot cocoa.

Think accessibility throughout

From this point in time, you’re only going to get older. We want our client’s to have the kitchen of their dreams now and in the future. We can help you plan for life’s little challenges and remodel your kitchen in a manner that is accessible for future you!
