Inspiration: 5 Kitchen Design Ideas

When it comes to kitchen design ideas, there are endless options and possibilities. From traditional to modern, rustic to glam or classic to minimalist, when you’re planning for your perfect kitchen to suit your style and lifestyle, here are 5 kitchen ideas to help inspire your own space.

Pop of Colour

Pop of Colour in your New Peterborough Home

Whether you love a classic look with white cabinets or industrial chic with wood and metal, adding a pop of colour to your kitchen can liven up any kitchen. This can be as simple as bright countertop appliances or you can take it a step further and think colourful refrigerators or stoves, or even bold cabinet colour choices. Adding colour to your kitchen space is a great way to make a statement and incorporate your unique personality to your space.

Open Shelving

Rather than traditional upper cabinets, consider a mix with some open shelving to display your dishes and cookware. This not only adds a modern touch to your kitchen, but also makes it feel more spacious and airy. Tip – consider placing dishes that are used most often on open shelves to ensure they don’t collect dust and to allow for easy access to grab what you need while cooking.

Natural Materials

Incorporating natural materials such as wood, stone, and greenery into your kitchen design can add warmth and texture to the space. Wood countertops, backsplashes made of stone or tile, and earthy finishes on cabinets can bring a rustic, natural feel to your kitchen. But don’t stop there - adding some greenery to your kitchen with plants will not only bring life to the space but can also improve air quality and bring a calming presence to the room.

Bold Backsplash

Lighting in your New Peterborough Home

Don't underestimate the power of good lighting in a kitchen. Proper lighting is essential for any kitchen, whether it's for cooking or entertaining. Consider installing pendant lights over your island, under-cabinet lighting for task lighting, and dimmer switches for added ambiance and warmth to the space.
