“When we bought this house, I knew that the kitchen would have to be done over,” Stephanie said. “It’s so dark, which I know was the style at the time. It just draws you down to be in there. I don’t want that. I want a joyous, creative kitchen.”
When Wayland homeowners come to us for help with their kitchen renovation plans, we spend a lot of time listening to what they’d like their new space to look and feel like. Sometimes far more important than knowing the specific cabinet style or appliance choices is the deep understanding of how the family who lives in the home will live in and enjoy the space.
“A kitchen is a very personal room,” Stephanie said. “This is where I make meals for my children. When I’m stressed out, this is where I come to bake. I want this to be a space I enjoy being in. Where I feel inspired and motivated to create.”
Factors to consider when planning your kitchen remodel include the floor plan, the use of natural light, and most importantly, color. We treat every kitchen renovation as an opportunity to create an ideal space, tailored to the family who lives there.
When the intention is to create a joyful, functional space, there’s a need for people to be able to move and work easily in the room – smart space planning and work flow matters! Additionally, a lot of attention will be paid to lighting the kitchen, whether that’s through the selection and placement of windows or via intelligent light fixture selection.
Integrating color into kitchen design can happen any number of ways, from counter and cabinetry selection, the choice of flooring and wall coverings, and more. Our team will work with you to choose the approach that makes sense, giving you the look you love and the functionality you need.
