Modern Kitchen Design Ideas

Overhead kitchen light fixtures are a good choice to illuminate the room a lot to allow for proper brightness. However, the design of the floor is very important when trying to create a modern kitchen. The textures and colors chosen will make a statement about the kitchen and tie everything together. Simple hardwood floors or one color tiles are chosen to keep with the simple and sleek feel of modern design. When choosing modern kitchen paint colors, lighting fixtures is another pieces that should be taken into consideration. Simple hanging pendant lighting is also an option that will add to the modern design while also adding brightness to the room. The design of the furniture should also have simplistic lines and match the lines and décor of the rest of the room.

Common to have little curves in the furniture. The most popular modern style furniture has clean straight lines that match the feel of the kitchen cabinet design, refrigerator and countertops. These simplistic lines will add to the functionality of the space while allowing for an area to sit and enjoy a meal. When designing a modern style kitchen there are many aspects to take into consideration to get the correct image and feel. Sticking to monochromatic color tones such as stainless steel metals or dark black tones will create a sleek design. In addition to the simple color tones, having strong clean lines in the kitchen backsplash tiles, furniture, countertops, and refrigerator will create a modern design.

Kitchen, Meet Dining Room

posted by Kitchen & Bathroom Designer

Old houses have lots of appeal, but frequently, their interior spaces could do with a contemporary revision. For this home in Seattle, architect Nicole Starnes Taylor needed to unite the disconnected kitchen and dining room to make the kitchen the heart of the house. Awkwardly placed doors and circulation paths wasted 75% of the potentially useful space in the kitchen and dining room area; reclaiming unused space was a viable solution and also more cost-effective than a kitchen addition. The existing kitchen needed work: The cabinets were too close to the countertops, lighting was poor, and windows were badly located. In the dining room, the only logical place for a table placed the table in a circulation path through the room. Also, the windows were badly placed. By knocking down an unused chimney between the kitchen and dining room and also removing a number of doors, Taylor connected the rooms visually and physically. The removal of a mudroom off the kitchen allowed the installation of French doors that, along with a new window over the sink, bring in plenty of natural light. A peninsula between the rooms acts as a perch space and permits circulation between the two rooms.

Kitchen Design 101

The Costs of Designing a Kitchen

The question of how much a kitchen design costs is similar to ‘how long is a piece of string’? This is because the kitchen design cost depends on the designer’s fees, your location and the kitchen you want designed.

Generally, however, the cost depends on whether you choose a ready-made kitchen or a customised kitchen.

A ready-made kitchen will tend to be less expensive than a customised variety. This is because the kitchen has already been designed (and often built) and – save for a few tweaks – can be installed into your space as is.

On the other hand, a customised kitchen will be created to your specific requirements. The colour, style, layout, carcass, cabinets, accessories and materials can all be designed to help you create your dream kitchen. Obviously this will take time to design, and as such will cost much more than a ready-made kitchen. While the cost of hiring a kitchen designer will add extra dollars to your budget, it can be worth it to ensure you receive the ideal kitchen for your space and preferences.

It is difficult to calculate the cost of your kitchen design, since the designer will need to assess the space and requirements. If you want a more unique or contemporary style, the quote is likely to be higher.

As a general guide, you can expend to spend a few thousand dollars for a kitchen design.

Comparing Kitchen Design Quotes

Since it’s difficult to estimate the cost of a new kitchen design, the best thing to do is contact kitchen designers to get quotes. With our free Get Quotes service, all you need to do is outline your project and designers will reply to you with their estimates.

Ensure you find out what is included in the quote, and what it will cost to weak or deviate from the original design. Some designers offer additional services, so check if this is included in the quote.

You’re then one step closer to creating your dream kitchen!

KBC Kitchen Design

posted by Kitchen & Bathroom Designer

KBC Kitchen Design:

A well designed KBC kitchen should help your family adhere to Jewish dietary laws with comfort, elegance and style. Unfortunately, all too often “KBC kitchen design” is little more than dividing different sets of utensils, pots and pans.

While our approach to designing a KBC kitchen varies only subtly from our normal process, there are some unique challenges and potential pitfalls to be recognized. Our experience designing over 200 KBC kitchens throughout Chicago including Highland Park, Deerfield, Skokie, Peterson Park, and Lincolnwood helps us to ask the right questions, have access to specialized vendors, and to employ unique solutions that will ultimately meet your unique needs.

For example, a number of manufacturers are producing appliances that have a “Sabbath Mode” to use during the Sabbath and on Yom Tov. Ovens with a Sabbath feature allow a meal to be started prior to the Sabbath for consumption the next day without worry of the oven shutting itself off after 12 hours. The choice of counter surfaces can also be tricky. Granite and marble can be koshered depending on the sealant used, while some rabbinical authorities believe that composites that contain granite cannot be kashered.

Kitchen Bins

Kitchen Bins

Large metal bins for garbage and recyclables sit at each end of the island (food scraps go into smaller pails for composting). Though the trend is to have pull-out bins behind cabinet doors, these are easier and cleaner to use: Step on the pedal to open. Similar trash cans.

Step Ladder

Keep a stepladder in the kitchen — if you’ve maximized your space, you’ll need one for reaching the highest shelves.
