Your kitchen is the heart of your home that brings people together. It is usually the area where people tend to gather and linger at family events and holiday parties. Your kitchen should be versatile enough that you should have the ability to whip up a five course meal for Thanksgiving dinner, or catch up with an old friend over some tea. It should invoke a simultaneous sense of warmth and elegance. If your kitchen doesn’t give you that warm and fuzzy feeling, it’s time for a change. Here at Cardano-Goodson, we have a few ideas that will turn your lackluster kitchen into a remarkable, multifunctional space.
A great way to make your kitchen look a little less traditional is to install some hidden appliances. Take a look at this concealed refrigerator. The exterior matches the rest of the cabinets, making the room appear much bigger than it actually is. This effect can also be applied to your dishwasher, pantry, garbage can, and even washer/dryer space if necessary. This look produces a sleek and stylish aesthetic, while still maintaining the proper function of a traditional kitchen. Your friends and family will be in awe!
Island with sink
If you’re looking to stray from the cookie cutter kitchen layout, consider installing your sink into the island counter. Placing the sink in the island will create easy access from all corners of the room and will save counter space, making more room for your small appliances.This functional design will make mobility while cooking a breeze, but will also make a trendy statement. Imagine this design with granite countertops and matching oak cabinets. Stunning!
A walk-in pantry is another great solution to a lack of space in your kitchen. A pantry large enough to fit all food items will allow more room in your cabinets for kitchen accessories and will also save you some square footage of floor space. Not only is this design functional, but it is stylish as well. You can add shelves and drawers in your pantry to optimize organization, and on the outside, add that hidden appliance look to match all the cabinets in your kitchen. No one will ever know it’s there!
This design idea can bring a comfortable and classy addition to your home. The island is connected to a built-in bench which opens up the floor plan. The dining table and chairs make room for more guests to have a seat and enjoy each other’s company. This design brings the traditional idea of a dining room to a whole new level!
Open floor plan
If you want to create the illusion of a bigger space, or even want to make the divisions of the rooms in your home appear a little less abrupt, you should invest in an open floor plan. This open space can extend your kitchen into another room, such as a living room. This open effect will make the rooms appear larger and is also a great design conducive for family gatherings.
