One of the simplest ways to really let your style through in your kitchen design is to embrace an eclectic style. Let go of the need to have everything match and focus on buying singular pieces that you love, whether they seem to go together or not. You can bring it all into focus by having one color that flows throughout the kitchen.
The tile in your kitchen can be one of the most jaw-dropping aspects of your redesign. When you work with Mission Tile West, we can create custom tile that exactly meets your needs. We work with more than 200 manufacturers and can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Who says you have to have kitchen cabinets? One of the coolest new trends is choosing open shelves next to the stove, sink, and fridge. You can get something really interesting like salvaged hardwood to act as shelves and use simple metal tubing to hang them. Not only will you always know where everything in your kitchen is, but you’ll get a quirky, unique look.
The light in any space can have a big impact on how a room looks. That’s even more true if you’re looking for an overall eclectic kitchen. Instead of choosing a single lighting style or one type of pendant, have different lights in different areas in your kitchen. After all, you have different lighting needs over a butcher block than you would over the kitchen sink.
Contemporary sinks come in a few distinct styles and some of them are gorgeous. However, they’re not always perfect for a homeowner who wants a kitchen with a little more personal style. The good news is that you can buy vintage pieces that not only are quirky and cool, but often work much better. Consider farmhouse sinks, which are deeper and wider than your typical contemporary sink. They can make dishes a breeze and they have a significant visual impact.
