When it comes to kitchen design, the aim is to achieve function, flow, and fashion while largely adhering to a budget. If the homeowner must include a certain favorite item, such as a peninsula, it can be worthwhile to plan around that feature. Several online planning tools are available that allow users to input the dimensions of the kitchen and experiment with various layouts. Popular materials for counter-tops include stainless, stone, wood, and laminate. Kitchens can be made more attractive by adding unique touches like a wide ribbon of green paint on the walls and ceiling or a do-it-yourself clock kit with vinyl adhesive lettering. A household with kids might opt to add a loveseat and chairs that all have removable covers that can be washed. Ideally, all the pieces in a kitchen should not come from a single source; a pair of Tolix stools, for example, would give the peninsula an industrial yet polished flair. Other features that can add uniqueness to a kitchen include vintage light fixtures with enameled pendants. | Read More
