There are many different styles for you to consider in a kitchen. To find the best one for you, check out this guide going over how to choose the best kitchen style for your home.
Consider Your Lifestyle
The first step you will most likely take when choosing a kitchen style is your lifestyle. Things to consider when figuring out what works for your life is:
- Family (kids, elderly, pets, etc.)
- The amount you cook
- Gatherings or parties
- Appliances you need
This can vary depending on your wants and needs. We recommend sitting down and making a list of what you want and need.
Think About Your Personal Tastes
Once you have your lifestyle needs figured out, it is time to figure out your personal tastes. This is the part where you discover what you like — colors, textures, designs and brands. You may want to look at sites like Pinterest and home stores like Wayfair for inspiration. You can even visit stores in person and make notes of what you like. From there, you can get with a contractor and designer to discuss what you want in your kitchen.
Follow Your Budget
An important factor that people skip over when updating their kitchen to fit their personal tastes is to follow their budget. If you do not follow a budget, you can end up spending more money than you should. Before getting everything you want or need for your kitchen, we recommend sitting down and flushing out your budget as well as what everything costs. If you are going over your budget, remove or replace to more affordable options. If you have not reached your budget, you can add more or adjust to other items. We do recommend leaving some extra wiggle room in case anything happens.
Know the Trends
When trying to figure out what style fits best for your kitchen, you should also look at the latest trends. Each year, new styles, appliances, updates, designs and more come out. Before updating your kitchen, we recommend checking out the latest trends. Here’s a guide going over the top trends for 2022.
