Many of my client’s often say that the kitchen is the heart of their home. Needless to say, they are correct. This is a room where meals are made with your family and friends. It also a place where memories are made during the holidays and special occasions. Kitchens are not sedate and quiet rooms. They are rooms filled with energy, aroma, and texture. They are created with a purpose, to be a utilitarian space.

There are several ways to update your kitchen on a budget and not spend an unreasonable amount of money. I recommend spending some time gathering pictures of kitchens you like from your friends home, magazines, or the internet, such as Pinterest.  Choose a style that best suits your taste.

To start, you can get new handles and pulls. Changing out cabinetry is one of the easiest and quickest updates. Many cabinet styles are easily adaptable to any style of knobs-modern, traditional, or even funky, depending on your style and taste. Another option you can consider is painting your cabinets; this can change the entire outlook of your kitchen. If you have a small kitchen, you can make the space appear bigger by removing cabinet doors entirely or replace them with glass doors. This adds a stylish look to your kitchen and also makes it appear bigger as well. In any kitchen, large or small, it is important to consider storage space. I always loved the freestanding bookshelves; it’s stylish, trendy, and inexpensive. Another option I always loved using with my clients with small kitchens is hanging baskets over the sink.

Many homeowners now want to create a kitchen that is accommodating for large tables and islands. Many of my clients want this so they can create a natural flow for family or guests coming and going in their home. Functionality, comes into mind when designing a kitchen, the idea of a kitchen becoming a living space is becoming more popular. As a result, homeowners now are following trends for the purpose of both lifestyle and resale value.  

As owner and designer from Bedford Interior Design I strive for achieving these styles. I strive to turn their vision into reality. My goal and mission is to turn my client’s houses into homes.
