5 kitchen design tricks for those who want an upgrade

If you’re looking to upgrade your kitchens then it’s always important that you do some extensive research at first. Since the kitchen is such a hub of daily life, it’s the place where you’ll notice these upgrades the most. At the end of the day you’re investing for the long run, so we’ve compiled a list of kitchen design tricks for those who want to upgrade! Let’s take a look:

 

1. Dichotomous feature backsplash

Since the dawn of stylish design, we’ve been told that the backsplash must always be installed in between the countertop and underbelly of over-cabinets, and that it should remain constant. But not anymore! You can choose up to two tasteful backsplashes for your kitchen design these days. The glass and feature subway tiles in this image are an excellent example of this trending phenomenon!

 

 2. Horizontal shelves

We’ve all become used to the typical cabinet design that has define the kitchen aesthetic for decades now, but it’s high time that we break this monotony! Instead of the conventionally long over-cabinets, you can opt for open horizontal shelves for your kitchen upgrade. These can make it easier for you to keep things handy and within reach while simultaneously seeming extremely stylish!

 

 3. Semi-inbuilt

While in-built appliances in a kitchen have an extremely posh effect, not all homeowners can afford to indulge in this idea. However, you can definitely go the extra mile to imitate it. Instead of going for fully fledged, anthropometrically fitted cabinets for in-built appliances, you can just arrange your cabinet and countertop designs in a way that’ll make space for at least a fridge to make it snugly fit and in-built.

 

 4. The leeway top

As far as open kitchen bars and breakfast nooks are concerned, people are still loving this particular idea. However, you must always make sure that the public end of the breakfast bar is at least one foot taller than the private half so that you can more easily install the bar stools on that end. This is an ergonomic part of the whole upgrade!

 

 5. Forego the trim

Old school kitchens used to have a narrow trim in between each cabinet or drawer, but the modern way to do things is completely opposite. Forgoing the trim gives the whole cabinet design a rather sleek, contemporary finish, which is always a bonus on the visual front.
