At Pulp Design Studios, we’ve been designing kitchens for our clients with two kitchen islands that are spacious, full of purposeful storage, and great for entertaining.
Mixed materials and finishes on everything from cabinets to hardware and fixtures has become popular as well as cabinetry with open shelving and even sliding doors. Appliances in a variety of colors are also trending.
And perhaps the most overlooked, yet most critical function in the kitchen is the faucet and sink, which ROHL has redefined as the water appliance. The most used appliance in the kitchen is actually the faucet/sink combination,” said Greg Rohl. “A family of four uses their water appliance 20-30 times a day. We encourage designers to think about reallocating budgets towards this most heavily used ‘appliance’ allowing clients to spend more for better quality and more attractive solutions.
The kitchen’s importance to the home owner is second to none. In today’s open-floor home designs, the kitchen takes center stage as the place where the family’s lifestyle starts. Kitchens are the most important selling point in home buyers’ decision.
