The kitchen is the heart of the home, and that is especially true as we approach the holiday season. Whether you’re looking to give your kitchen a quick refresh before hosting, or if you’re planning that big remodel in 2023, there are ways to give your space that high end feel.
Embracing color: This has certainly been the trend of the year. The all-neutral color scheme is a staple, but it’s time to consider a bolder palette.
Introducing it in the stone: Using the natural variations of color in stone is a great way to keep your kitchen from looking dull. If you’re looking to go bold, which I always encourage, Cullifords green marble is a fantastic option that leans into the hot biophilic trend. If you’re looking to add something more subtle, there are plenty of variations of stone to match your personal style.
Cabinetry Color: An option that isn’t as committal, giving your cabinets a refresh with a bold paint is a relatively easy way to add a pop of color to your kitchen. I love the blue kitchen from Bakes & Kropp.
Appliances: Gone are the days of only stainless steel appliances. If you’re looking to update your kitchen I highly recommend picking something colorful and unique! The light blue Viking Range is playful, but still gives that high-end look.
Wood Tones: Color doesn’t have to be the only way to make a statement in your kitchen. Mixing textures and materials will set your kitchen apart and give you that high-end look. I love adding wood tones to the space because it grounds the energy and adds a “hominess” to the kitchen. The metal and wood stools from McGee & Co are a great example on how you can begin mixing textures.
Dedicated bar: Consider adding a space in your kitchen that is just for you. A dedicated bar for coffee, cocktails, or even a baking station is an act of self-care that will give your kitchen a high-end look. This space should feel comforting and personal, which is why I love the looks from Miele and Studio Dearborn.
Remember, high-end doesn't have to mean boring. The heart of your home should be full of personality and life, so have fun redecorating! Intention is always key, and if you lead with that everything else will fall into place.
