Pet Friendly Stations…. The Newest Trend in Kitchens!

11 Mar

The days of banishing Fido to the doghouse in the backyard would appear to be over. And rightly so.

Today, we consider our pets as much a part of the household as us humans. Pets are our faithful companions and they want to hang out with us, no matter where we are in the house. But as much as we love having them around, tripping over bowls in the kitchen or dog food bags in the mudroom wears a bit thin.

So if you’re planning to renovate or redecorate, take a good look at how your pets needs fit into your daily routine, and work them into your design. Here are some ideas.

Sleeping Area:  This idea is especially helpful to those who find space to be a luxury that is not available to them. Since you already have cabinetry in your home, you can have your pet’s sleeping area built into such cabinetry. It could be a cabinetry in the mudroom, hallway, garage or even the utility closet. Take your time to help the pet adapt to the new arrangement and with time, your home will be clutter-free.

Feeding Area: Just like the sleeping area, the trend now is creating pets’ feeding areas from cabinetry. This means that you no longer have to display the pet’s food and water bowls in an exposed corner of your home. In order to make the most of this idea, the area should be properly incorporated into the décor of the home. This means that the color of the bowls should blend with either the top of the cabinet or the handles. Or how about a floor-level drawer for the bowls that can slide into the kick space between meals?

Whether you’re planning to freshen up the laundry room, or heading for a full-blown renovation, take a close look at your daily routine, and don’t forget to include the four-legged members of the clan.

Ingenious functionality meets interesting design

25 Jul
This “Hidden Kitchen” when closed, looks like a sophisticated Wall Unit yet with a single push of a button, it opens up to reveal your fully equipped Kitchen. When it’s time to get down t…o business, press the button and watch the magic happen. The central section opens up like a bi-folding garage door to reveal your kitchen. Space is not an issue, there’s room for everything you both want and need from a fully equipped kitchen. An abundance of work top space for food preparation, integrated oven in one of the side wall panels and a Fridge/Freezer in the other. And when you’re finished, simply close it all up and hide the mess allowing you to maintain a “domestic goddess” like appearance at all times.

We are “FIRED UP” for these new ultra-modern Vent Hoods!

4 Apr

Generally speaking, there’s nothing exciting about vent hoods. Today’s roundup, though, might change that just a smidge. Led by a brand named Elica, of which four vent hood designs made it into today’s series, there’s an aesthetic movement happening among kitchen appliance designers. The bulky, overwhelming monstrosities of yesteryear are being replaced by sleek discs, curved sculptural plates and even glimmering chandeliers all serving the same purpose: to eliminate excess heat and steam from a kitchen during meal preparation. Style and functionality most definitely go hand-in-hand where these new culinary helpers are concerned.

Say goodbye to the staunchly utilitarian bathroom vanity. The old models of the past are moving out and making room for the super modern bathroom vanities of today.
Floating vanities are a great way to open up your bathroom without taking out any walls. The simple act of raising your vanity off the floor makes the space look bigger. Suddenly the flooring seems to stretch on forever.
There are endless possibilities of shapes, sizes and materials. Opt for small and decorative, or pick something with a bit more heft so you’ll have plenty of storage room.
With their sleek, contemporary design and cool simplicity, they’re sure to stand the test of time.

“KITCHEN” Design talk

30 Jan

DESIGN TALK-

Rosario advises on tips and tricks of the trade and where it’s wise to spend when it comes to Kitchen Design in 2013.

1

What’s trending in the kitchen right now?

Kitchen design is looking very exciting for 2013 as several design philosophies are converging and mixing, resulting in kitchens that are highly personal. With the economy still trudging along without a spring in its step, homeowners want to buy smart for longevity which translates to neutral finishes for big ticket items such as cabinetry, countertops and flooring. Clean modern styles with warm touches continue their popularity. There is still big interest in open floor plans and the social kitchen & built-in can concealed appliances are popular and there is a growing interest in design sustainability and healthy cooking, which factors into the consumer’s purchasing decisions more than they ever have in the past.

What are people looking for when they renovate their kitchens?

People have different reasons for wanting to renovate their kitchens, but that for the most part people are looking for a “FUNCTIONAL” kitchen as the motivating factor. Home cooks are looking for appliances that have convenient features, and cabinet access and storage should also be convenient. The kitchen needs to perform as effortlessly as possible with mutable cooks, entertaining, extended cooking sessions & social cooking. Homeowners seek to express themselves in a personal way in terms of aesthetics and function.

5

If there’s one thing we should splurge on when we remodel our kitchens what should it be?

Cabinetry has been and will continue to be the one area to splurge on. Cabinetry gets used constantly as do appliances, but since cabinetry is made of wood products as opposed to metals and glass that appliances are made of, it is critical that cabinetry be able to perform consistently over time and resist wear for at least 20 years.  Investing in high end cabinetry is a smart investment as you get what you pay for and skimping on low end cabinetry can be a gamble.

4

What kitchen appliance is worth the splurge?

The answer is indeed a subjective one. Opt for a major cooking appliance such as an oven and cooktop, or a range, depending on which one best fit the overall kitchen plan. The flexibility of a cooktop’s burners to simmer or power boost, built in timers, auto-cook features, convection in ovens, easy pull out racks and precise temperature control are a cook’s dream. Technology has modernized cooking appliances that we see today. Clever features, such as cooktops with no burners at all are being offered being offered by both Thermador and Gaggenau brands. Imagine being able to place a pot wherever you want on your cooktop!

3  303 1

Are there any popular kitchen cabinet colors trending right now?

We are seeing and working with lots of white, off whites and neutral wood tones.  They continue to be what homeowners want in cabinetry.

6

Are there any industry secrets you’re willing to share?

Yes, the importance of designing the kitchen area with equal or near equal emphasis on form and function.  This means that form does not have to follow function – function can follow form!

On a final note, find “YOUR” perfect professional, one you can trust with your home, who will listen to you but not ‘yes’ you, guide but not push and you’ll be on the road to a fabulous renovation.

We hope this leaves you well informed and ready to tackle your kitchen renovation!
