  5. Statement Lighting
  6. Two-Tone Cabinets
  7. Farmhouse Sinks

Style Tip #1: Add A Splash of Color on the Kitchen Island

Contrasting Colors Can Make Your Kitchen Island Pop

Painting your kitchen island a fun color is a simple way to add interest to an otherwise plain or neutral kitchen. This design trend has been very popular recently and allows you to bring some color into your space without the full commitment of painting your entire kitchen.

Style Tip #2: Utilize Copper Kitchen Accents

Copper Kitchen Hardware Adds A Luxurious Look

A recent kitchen trend is incorporating copper accents, such as copper faucets, light fixtures, and cabinet hardware. These are unique from the typical black, silver, or gold options and they give a classy, luxurious, and timeless look to your kitchen.

Another take on this trend is displaying a collection of copper pots and pans. Install hooks above the stove or along an empty wall to add extra functionality to your kitchen.

Style Tip #3: Incorporate Statement Tiling

Tile Backsplashes & Flooring Can Add Elegance & Color to Your Kitchen

We have seen a lot of Spanish and Greek inspired porcelain tiling in home design lately. These colorful tiles are popular in kitchen backsplashes and floors. Blue and white are an especially popular color combination, which was used in our recent kitchen project as seen above.

Style Tip #4: Opt For Marble Alternative Countertops

Faux Marble Countertops Provide An Affordable High-End Look 

Faux marble countertops have been around for a while, but they aren’t leaving anytime soon. This simple design choice gives your kitchen an elegant, luxurious, and high-end look.

We used Calcutta Laza Quartz in the kitchen above. It is durable, easy to clean, and maintenance-free. Quartz is a man-made stone that is formed with natural quartz crystals, resins, and pigments and mimics the look of natural marble.

Style Tip #5: Install Statement Lighting

Kitchen lighting Can Make A HUGE Impact!

If you want to create a high-end, modern look for your kitchen, add dramatic light fixtures. Statement lighting gives your kitchen a focal point and adds a “Wow!” factor, leaving your guests impressed. Oversized and unique light fixtures also draw attention upwards to give the illusion of a bigger space.

Style Tip #6: Two-Tone Kitchen Cabinetry

Utilize Contrasting Colors to add style & enhance your kitchen space

Different paint colors for upper and lower cabinets is a fun design idea. Two-tone cabinetry is perfect for when you want to incorporate a dark color into your kitchen but don’t want to overwhelm your space. 

Dark colors have a tendency to make rooms appear smaller, so painting your lower cabinets that dark accent color while keeping the uppers light is a great compromise. We illustrate this in our project above, with white upper cabinets to keep the kitchen bright and the dark navy lower cabinets for balance.

Style Tip #7: Replace Your Kitchen Sink with A Farmhouse Sink

Farmhouse sinks blend functionality & style

We have seen farmhouse sinks becoming more and more popular over the last few years. This classic design is available in a variety of styles, so you can find the perfect match for your kitchen. Plus, they are practical because their size is great for large families or those who love to host.

Style Tip #8: Stylish Wood Range Hoods

Range Hoods Come in a variety of styles

Get creative with your range hood. Ventilation above your stove is important, so why not make it stylish? In the photo above, our customer opted for a wood range hood to tie in the wood accents in their kitchen.
