Whether you are looking to do a small update to make a big impact or a larger reno, when selecting items to transform your space think about how they can work together to create harmonious vignettes. Here are a few tips on how to include current trends in your kitchen for a designer worthy look.

LOOKING TO REFRESH YOUR SPACE WITH A DIY PROJECT that is also budget friendly? Start by painting to create a big impact for a low cost.

ALWAYS CONSIDER COLOR TONES AND MATERIAL choices when working on a kitchen space. I found this gorgeous utensil set that is sleek and chic from Simons Maison, which would pair beautifully with the Simons dinnerware – making the perfect table setting.

WHEN STYLING YOUR COUNTERTOPS I love to use clear stylish containers for easy access, in addition you can change up the contents to match the overall look and feel of your kitchen space. If you buy a set of two, they can be paired together on the counter or separated in two different sections without disrupting the overall flow of your kitchen.

IS A LARGER RENO IN STORE FOR YOU THIS YEAR? You might consider adding new flooring or a backsplash. There are so many options out there to create a stunning transformation. In tiles, we are seeing the trend of lots of linear textures, 3D marble and wood.

FLOORING WILL ALSO MAKE A HUGE IMPACT on your space and tie the entire room together. When it comes to flooring, make sure you are considering the color and durability first and foremost. Having a floor with a few color transitions in it will help hide the dirt. Your lifestyle and how you use the space will direct you in what material is best. If you can have a continuous flow of the same flooring throughout the main level, this always helps to make the areas seem larger.
