Renovating your kitchen is a personal statement of taste, functionality and spirit. Homeowners are often attracted to the latest and greatest and focus on products and designs that are trending today. Trends aren’t necessarily a bad thing, but we always ask our customers that are looking at the latest and greatest bells and whistles if they believe that the particular color scheme, design palate or trend will withstand the test of time.
We want to help our clients avoid buyer’s remorse. We don’t want our clients to walk into their home one day and wonder, “What was I thinking when I decided that green was the right color for our cabinets?” We’ve all made fashion faux pas, buying items worn by celebrities or raved about on social media only to find that they are out of style when next season rolls around. We want to help our clients avoid those mistakes in their kitchen renovation. The bottom line is that we encourage our clients to ignore what others may be thinking or be doing and create a space that will make them smile every time they cross the threshold or ignite a burner on their cooktop.
When a new client first comes to our showroom, one of our goals is to identify the style that he or she likes and determine how that style will complement other rooms in the home. There are lots of online resources to help identify stylistic preferences – Houzz, Pinterest, interior design magazines and other social media sites. We encourage our clients to bring us images not only of kitchens but also of other rooms that tug at their heartstrings. Remember, when you renovate your kitchen, bath or any room in your home; you are making a deep personal statement that should bring pleasure every day.
