4 Things to Consider When Designing Your Kitchen

It’s undeniable. The kitchen is truly the heart of the home. When you want to gather with family and friends, the kitchen becomes the main attraction, especially when it has a welcoming design and layout like the kitchens we offer in all three of our models here at Parkview at Chesterbrook. Before you start to design your custom kitchen, here are a few 2016 design trends we’ve been noticing.

Unique Backsplash Designs

Shake things up by installing traditional subway tile vertically or think about a herringbone or diagonal pattern. Feeling truly inspired? Check out fireclaytile.com to design your own tiles for a truly custom backsplash.

Shaker Style Cabinets

Simplicity at its best. This style of cabinet can feel traditional or modern depending on the hardware and surrounding elements it’s paired with. Choose gray cabinets instead of white for a truly fresh look.

Quartz Countertops

Consider quartz as a lower maintenance alternative to granite. It’s nonporous and resistant to heat, spills and scratches, making it an ideal choice for busy families and the home chef.

Rethink Your Kitchen Table

Many of today’s modern homeowners choose to forgo a traditional table and instead opt to use their kitchen island as their dining space. If a table is a must for you, try a pub, tall gathering, or counter height table instead. These tables are typically 36 to 42 inches high, as opposed to the standard 30 inch kitchen table.
