The Farm Charm

Take a page from the book of one of the favorite styles in kitchen design. Farmhouse style is a warm, inviting, and chic look. If you want a relaxed atmosphere through your kitchen, bring in the vintage farm style.

Farmhouse style looks lived in, and allows you to repurpose items you might already have. Copper plays a huge part in this kitchen, along with wood and bronze. Yellow and blue are common colors to play with, and having a hood over your stove or cooktop really brings the style together.

Double Down on Countertops

To add dimension to your kitchen, you can opt for not one, but two countertops. Open up the space by breaking up your countertops. If your kitchen is small, it can even help to expand the look and feel of your space. A fun design trend that people have been using? Adding different countertop materials.

Wanna throw your own piece of reclaimed wood in the mix with a brand new countertop? A mix of old and new can be your little secret and a big friend to your budget.

Vaulted Ceilings

Not every kitchen allows for this upgrade, but if your kitchen can support a vaulted ceiling, by all means, consider it for your next remodel. Adding space to the ceiling can make a small kitchen seem bigger by leaps and bounds. Visually, your space is enhanced. It also makes the area feel airier and brighter. You can choose to install windows as well and add in extra light.

Different Work Zones

You’re not always doing one thing in your kitchen, so you don’t need just one space. Are you a frequent entertainer? Design yourself a mini-bar area with a separate kitchen island. If you're a frequent coffee drinker, make yourself a coffee station. A baking station can also be a fun and unique addition to your kitchen. If two people cook in your kitchen often, the two counters mentioned earlier is a good way to keep everyone from running into each other.
