Designing or remodelling a new modern kitchen can be a rewarding yet challenging experience. The kitchen industry has evolved dramatically over the last 30 years to accommodate and keep track of changing needs, tastes and requirements from home owners. New technologies and materials has given rise to an explosion of new manufacturers and suppliers of core kitchen utilities and accessories. You will have to make decisions about everything from kitchen sinks, to kitchen islands, extractor fans and faucets. On top of that, the entire style and ambience of your kitchen will be impacted by your choice of kitchen cabinets, flooring, and lighting. Your architect or interior designer will be able to give you advice on modern kitchen trends.
Another great resource of information about kitchen design are the multitude of interior design and home improvement magazines at your local news outlet. Also, drop in at you neighbourhood bookstore and browse through the “Living” or “Home” sections. Finally, put in the effort to drive to your local kitchen suppliers. A few hours in the showrooms will not only amaze you but will provide you with loads of creative ideas and a great frame of reference about your new project.
