If you’re planning a kitchen remodel in 2022, you know – the search for inspiration is real. It’s easy to say you want a kitchen that’s unique, beautiful and functional, but what does that mean? When you’re telling your Newton kitchen remodeling contractor what you’d like to achieve, they’re going to need to know what you want. This means you do too.
Finding inspiration can be tricky. Some people can figure out what they want their new kitchen to look like from wandering around the home improvement store and watching design shows on TV. But for the majority of people – especially those homeowners who want a uniquely personal, high quality kitchen the process can be a little more involved.
Surprising Sources of Kitchen Design Inspiration: Your Dining Room Table
If you’re a person who likes to entertain, or you enjoy setting a beautiful table for special events, your tablescape choices can help drive kitchen design. To do this, think of your tablescape – the linens, dishes, silverware, flowers, and everything else carefully chosen for a meal – as your kitchen aesthetic in miniature. The colors, textures, finishes, and tone of the table can influence your choices of wall treatment, cabinetry, appliances and more.
Obviously, it’s much easier and affordable to play with color and texture combinations on a table-sized scale. Give yourself freedom to play. Do you know you want a family friendly casually elegant kitchen? What does that look like in terms of plates and napkins, cups and centerpieces? As you try different ideas, it’s a good idea to take a picture of each table so you can look back and review what you liked and didn’t like. Through repetition and review, this type of design exercise can help you clarify and refine your vision for your new kitchen.
