Renovating your kitchen has become a fairly common home practice, and unfortunately, it seems as though designs are getting less and less inspired. In an attempt to stay fashionable and modern, people are staying boring, and at Alliance Millwork and Cabinets, we don’t think boring cuts it. Your kitchen should be a room in your house that you’re proud to say that you designed, and being original is a huge part of that. Below, we want to make some suggestions as to how you can make your kitchen feel like something out of a catalogue.
Having a more informal place to eat than the dining room table is something that a lot of homeowner’s love. Having a small booth with a café table in your kitchen is a luxury that is certainly worth exploring. Perfect for a quick breakfast, an intimate dinner, or even just extra counter space, a booth affords you both utility and design opportunity. You can experiment with the benches themselves (perhaps a dark, sturdy wood like oak), the back cushions (whose coverings you can get in virtually any color or fabric design), and even the table when completing the area. We recommend putting your café in a corner of your kitchen to allow for custom cabinetry to be installed above the nook area.
Some kids love to cook, and it’s a great skill to have. Unfortunately, most kitchens just aren’t built to encourage their culinary genius. The more vertically challenged among them can barely reach above countertops, let alone sauté on a stove. If you’d like to encourage your child to become the chef you know they can be, consider building a smaller, more pared down version of your own kitchen that is more suitable to their needs. Building an area of low countertops with tiny custom cabinets to house children’s sized dish ware, cook ware, and utensils is a whimsical, original way to show your child that you support their creativity. And if originality is your goal in kitchen design, this is certainly something you won’t see in very many kitchens. A project like a tiny kitchen can really highlight the value of using a custom cabinetry company, as we not only have the capability to redo your kitchen, but we can do it in exactly the style, and size, you want it.
For some people, their kitchen is their least utilized room in the house. Maybe they’re not big on cooking or maybe they just prefer to order in, but regardless of your kitchen situation, it should be a room that you’re proud of. Allow yourself to be inspired in renovating your kitchen and do things that are unconventional. Make your kitchen renovation dreams a reality with Alliance Millwork and Cabinets.
