I often tout the benefits of designing to the architecture of a building. Integrating your interiors with your architecture makes for a look that is always right. This is the best way to avoid a strictly trendy or out-of-place look.
Elements of design are the building blocks of art for good reason. They also happen to work when it comes to planning and laying out your kitchen. Whether you are all about luxury or bound to the basics, awareness of these fundamentals can make all the difference.
Every designer has a trademark. One of mine definitely is the microwave drawer. Why? It’s safe, easy to use and very unobtrusive. Yes, a microwave drawer will cost you a bit more than the over-the-range type but it’s oh so worth it!
Summer projects are in full swing in South Florida! In fact it’s the height of the busy season for most design professionals here.
Whether you are a design professional or an educated homeowner you’ve probably heard the term “kitchen work triangle”. In fact it’s probably one of the first things you learn when endeavoring to create a new kitchen. Who thought this up? It is actually the result of a study made at the University of Illinois in the 1950s! If you’re wondering if it could be outdated, just think of how much kitchens have changed since then in terms of products, appliances and how we use them.
