Hints & Tips

There are limitless options available for the components of your new kitchen. Make sure you end up with the kitchen that best suits your needs by learning about what’s available to you, the pros and cons of various options, the latest trends in design and more!

When planning your kitchen project:
• Consider everything that’s in your kitchen now
• Determine where you would put it in your newly configured space
• Make notes on your plan to identify which items will be stored in each cabinet or drawer
• Fine-tune your design and select accessories accordingly.

The door hardware is like jewellery for the room. Whether you select shiny chrome knobs, brushed nickel bar pulls or oil-rubbed bronze handles, the style should both blend with the style of the whole space and enhance it.

Design tip: consider choosing more than one cabinet paint colour, wood stain or decorative finish. Choose light stains for some, dark for others or for a rustic look, choose a distressed or antiqued look. By choosing more than one finish you will add depth to the kitchen.
