Denver Kitchen Cabinetry and Appliance Color Decisions


September 11, 2019

Along with the multiple decisions associated with a kitchen construction or remodel are the important factors associated with color. While many will fret over the countertop materials and ensuing color selections, in addition to how it correlates with the cabinets, there is also another pivotal aspect. Matching or correlating your kitchen appliances to the colors within your kitchen is another important component. Typical kitchen appliances include a refrigerator, microwave, stove, and dishwasher - each of which comes in a variety of different hues and traditionally are all comprised of a similar color or material but how does one determine the overall correlation within the kitchen.

There are typically three different schools of thought for this aspect. Top kitchen design styles include a variety of different factors and depending on personal preference, these can be tweaked to match each and everyone’s styles. A look at each is included below with the ultimate determination being made from how these color patterns match or not with the traditional appliance hues - black, white, or silver.

Light and Dark
Light cabinetry colors with dark appliances can put the details on your kitchen squarely on the countertops and other surface areas. By combining the high end color hues of cabinets with darker refrigerators and dishwashers, the combination creates a warm and inviting environment. In addition, the lighter cabinets can help to offset a countertop color of any selection.

Dark and Light
Darker cabinets mixed with lighter appliances is a lesser known combination but one that can also work with any countertop surface or color. Having silver or white appliances combined with darker cabinets can be offset with a bright countertop or correlated with a darker surface to incorporate both design styles.

Mix and Match
A more recent trend is to mix and match the color patterns of all components within a kitchen. Having an island or bar top that is different than the remainder of the kitchen surfaces is something that creates a unique style and can make the space specific to each individual homeowner. Understanding you countertops don’t have to match can open up an entirely different realm of possibility.

Denver Kitchen Remodel Questions to Consider


August 28, 2019

Any type of home improvement project comes with its fair share of questions and concerns but many are well worth the benefits derived from a completed task. One of those involves the amount of enjoyment and functional use, not to mention the potential value, that can be involved with a simple kitchen remodel.

The most important room in the home, kitchens are where families gather and people entertain their friends. It’s also one of the few rooms that receives daily attention but rarely undergoes the upgrades or changes that a homeowner prefers. Instead of simply living with your current conditions, consider making a change and you will be amazed at the difference.

From a simple change in countertop materials to a complete overhaul, the results and difference is entirely up to you.

Countertops

One of the simplest ways to achieve a dramatic change is to remove old countertop surfaces and replace them with a new material. You won’t be adding any additional work space but this move serves as a new coat of paint does to the walls of other rooms. Not only can replacing prefabricated materials with a nice natural stone increase value but it can also make your kitchen a more user friendly environment.

Cabinets

Another change to consider would be your cabinet doors. As a homeowner, you can go all in with entirely new cabinets or just elect to change the front panels for aesthetic purposes. These changes can be one of the most costly, depending on which path you choose, so knowing whether you should replace or reface your current cabinets can help when setting a budget for the project.

Hardware

Another detail that people often forget when thinking about a kitchen remodel is the hardware used for drawers and cabinets. Depending on the style of cabinets currently in place, or those that are going to be added during the remodel, proper selection can add a bit of distinction to your space. Even if you wish to ramp up your current kitchen in a less intrusive way, then adding new hardware can create a unique look that will give a sense of change to the area that many will immediately notice. Choosing between pulls and knobs, or simply making the switch from one to the other can have a quality impact on your kitchen.

Reasons for a Denver Bathroom Remodel


Residential private, on suite, and guest, bathrooms are areas of a home that often get neglected when property owners consider upgrades to their existing space. Provided the current shower, tub, combination, toilet, and sink(s) are functional, many people don’t worry too much about the remainder of the facilities.

But it is here where individuals may benefit the most from choosing to complete a simple upgrade or full remodeling project. As a haven where either the owners or their guests will reside in private, there are many modern bathroom ideas that can assist in bringing your property up to current standards while providing a new, functional space for all to enjoy.

Depending on the current state of your existing bathroom, each of the following provides a legitimate reason to complete a remodeling project within your home.

Outdated Color Scheme

Many dated bathrooms are a dull mustard, baby blue, or greenish color which may have been standard years ago but not today. Instead, current trends display whites, greys, and black as prominent design bath paint colors.

With matching sinks, showers, toilets, and tubs, if you’re colors aren’t present day then consider making a change.

Countertop Damage

Cracked or peeling countertops from out-dated laminate materials are also a sign that a more modern touch is needed. Consider adding a natural stone countertop for a lasting solution.

Storage Space

Depending on the structure of your current bathroom, the need for more storage space may be apparent, If so, a few changes in design style may allow homeowners to achieve increased cabinet or closet space within their existing room.

Personal Needs

As we age the needs associated with our daily habits change tremendously. If you, or someone you love who resides with you, needs certain accommodations - i.e. walk-in tub, higher toilet, shower seats, etc. it may be time to make a change.

Increase Profit

Another reason to update your existing bathroom can be related to the potential profit acquired from the sale of a home. By spending a few dollars up front on updates for the bathroom, a homeowner could potentially net a larger profit when the property closes.

Denver Kitchen Cabinet Color Options and Ideas


July 31, 2019

No matter if you are in the middle of a remodeling project for your kitchen, upgrading from its current state, or involved in a new construction project - choosing the correct cabinet colors and options can make or break your space. The ability to determine which colors and style fit best with your existing area are important and these characteristics help to not only enhance the stigma behind a kitchen but also allow it to become a focal point for homeowners.

As one of the most important rooms of a home, the kitchen serves not only as a gathering place for guests and homeowners alike, but also as a serviceable space that can be used on a daily basis. Establishing a dynamic for the room serves to create the potential for an impact to be made on the existing space and by considering a few options, choose the best possible solution for homeowners.

Colors

Modern design features many different kitchen cabinet paint colors but ultimately it falls within what those who are deciding feel the most comfortable with. These selections, whether it be in contrast to the flooring or backsplash, or with a flowing feel based on the current colors of other highlighted aspects, can be difficult to determine.

Finding a happy-medium among color options, or at least something that can be useful for the future, is an important component no matter the state of the current kitchen. Whether you are simply painting existing cabinets or putting in new ones, understanding the changes made from a simple color change is important.
 
Open Face

One option to consider is open face cabinets or those that reveal the contents. These cabinets help to break up the monotonous blank slate cabinets that are typically put into place and allow a sneak peak into the serving utensils. Depending on where these particular cabinets are installed, their prevalence can be made to either be a focal point or unique feature.

Shelving

Another component to consider is not putting doors in place at all. Instead, many modern day homeowners are considering the impacts of open shelving and foregoing the placement of a door - even those with windowed panels. 

By utilizing a shelving installation, the homeowner can put important pieces of kitchen serving or eating on display. These areas help to incorporate an open feeling that is most often associated with the full home design style and can be reiterated inside the kitchen.

Denver Kitchen Cabinets Number One Question - Pulls or Knobs?


July 17, 2019

When remodeling or designing a kitchen from scratch, one of the most often forgot about features that are essential to the space are cabinet handles. These specific incantrancies of the overall kitchen are one of the most important features that can make or break a kitchen design and important to any homeowner. Depending on the cabinet shape and appliance color or style, finding a handle that not only serves as a functional piece but magnifies the overall look of a kitchen is extremely important. 

For this reason, examining the specifics and details of a kitchen are extremely important. Handles not only enhance the overall look of your kitchen design but will be one of the main components that people initially notice, along with colors and countertops. If your desire is to make an immediate impact and fulfill a true entertainment space, then finding an appropriate balance between pulls and knobs is important.

PULLS

Kitchen cabinet pulls are more difficult to install than knobs due to their lengthy span and two screw design. These components may be installed in either a vertical or horizontal capacity in order to accomodate to how the kitchen flows, but must be aligned to ensure they are not off center. At times, depending on the specific pull selected, these pieces are interchangeable but also allow for more wear and tear on the cabinet itself. Constant reaching for the pulls could damage or dirty the cabinets depending on their color.

KNOBS

When trying to select between cabinet knobs and pulls, the knobs offer a bit more flexibility. Not only are they easier in terms of installation - using just one screw instead of two - but they will also never be out of line. With pulls and handles, getting them precisely in line with the cabinet trim is extremely important and something that homeowners don’t have to worry with when using knobs. 

COMBO

A third option, and one that is becoming increasingly popular, is to utilize both pulls and knobs on kitchen cabinets. By mixing and matching these different utensils, the appropriate design and style can be associated with each individual cabinet. Having a combination allows for homeowners to maximize their potential within the room and utilize the best of both worlds without compromising the integrity of the space.
