When it comes to the heart of the home, here’s how to nail it on the décor!
Each part of a home serves a purpose of its own. The bedrooms are where you lay your head after an eventful day to get some rest for the days ahead. The family room is pretty self-explanatory; and does its job well when it comes to providing space for quality family time. Then there’s the kitchen. It’s been called the “heart” of the home for as long as we can remember, and for good reason! The kitchen is where nourishing meals are prepared, bonds are strengthened over breaking bread, last minute the-bus-comes-in-5-minutes waffles are devoured and so much more.
That’s why the interior design of the kitchen is so important to so many existing and prospective homeowners alike. If you’re trying to figure out how to infuse a bit of yourself in your kitchen design, keep reading!
You’ll want to begin perfecting your kitchen design by taking the whole home into account. Think about how each room in the home is connected to the others. We’ve spoken in other blogs about the “flow” of a home, and that flow should definitely be considered when you want to design a kitchen that won’t stick out like a sore thumb, but still has a vibe of its own.
Will the kitchen be traditional like the rest of the home with unique pops of color to stand out?
Will the kitchen take on a nautical feel like your bathroom?
Will the kitchen employ neutrals like the bedroom, but feature some brass details to emphasize the appliances?
These are all the types of questions you want to start asking yourself when thinking of designing your kitchen.
Mix a little bit of reality with your dreams. You want to think about the layout of the kitchen and surrounding space, but you also want to think about key elements you’ve just GOTTA HAVE.
Maybe the kitchen is separate from other rooms in the house, and you must take that into account with the big monstera plants you want in the room. Or maybe it’s an open flow layout where the kitchen naturally leads to the family room or living room, and you’ve got to think about where you’ll be aesthetically placing things.
Maybe you want to make the backsplash the focal point of the room. If it’s an open plan home, you’ll want to make sure the design doesn’t clash with the surrounding rooms/spaces.
Do you NEED to have a farmhouse sink? Do you really want your cabinets to be white? Really think about your feature priorities and try to balance those with the space and layout you’re working with.
