10 Ways to Add Style to Your Kitchen

deVOL Kitchens

 

When it comes to kitchens, we spend a lot of time thinking about the usual things. White or stainless appliances? Wood or white cabinets? Wood or tile floors? Beyond the basics, there are so many ways to make the heart of the home warm, welcoming and absolutely you. Take a peek at a few of our favorite ways to add style to the kitchen!

1. Beautiful beams. Beams instantly lend a rustic feel, interest on the ceiling and, we think, an overall cozy feeling!

2. Add an arch. In the kitchen, the little things are everything. Arches are one of our favorite architectural details that create instant charm.

3.  Lend a personal touch with luxurious kitchenware. From china to silverware, serving trays to accessories, kitchenware is a fabulous way to express yourself in the heart of the home.

4. Use a pot rack. Not only is a pot rack a convenient way to free up cabinet space, but it also looks fabulous.

5. Install statement lighting. A splash of color or a fun metallic can become an instant focal point in a kitchen.

6. Accent with natural stone. Natural stone is a beautiful touch in a kitchen. This honed marble is absolutely stunning!

7. Hang your favorite art. In the land of appliances and cookware, art may not be a top priority but a well-placed piece or two adds tons of personality!

8. Display serveware with glass front cabinets. Glass front cabinets feel light, open and airy and are a great way to display favorite service pieces, china, wine glasses or family silver.

9. Paint cabinets a signature color. In a world where neutral cabinets are the norm, painting cabinets a statement color is a way to instantly set your kitchen apart.

10. Make a splash with your range hood. From a simple microwave vent to something truly spectacular, there are so many ways to vent your kitchen. A unique, beautiful range hood like this one adds so much impact.

In Good Taste: Katie Hackworth

Katie Hackworth entry with black door and black and white interiors

 

From full design-and-build projects to remodels, self-taught architectural and interior designer Katie Hackworth uses a trained eye and a background (and degree) in graphic design to create bold, bright spaces perfect for every member of the family–even the dog!

“Authentic design, quality craftsmanship, and concise approach” are hallmarks of this designer’s signature style, and each space she designs bears her mark.

A mix of materials in a kitchen creates a warm and inviting space,

While unexpected colors ground it and lend a sense of history.

Hackworth’s attention to detail is one of the things she is known for. In this charming kitchen, the details are everything.

 

 

We love the mix of metals in this space–and the practical components of this working kitchen are just as chic as the decorative ones.

A blend of old and new,

10 Favorite Rooms with Stylish Storage

One of our favorite parts of the holiday season is the more is more approach.

Decorations everywhere, lights on every surface, the tree filling what was once a blank space.

After almost fifteen months of being out of our house from Hurricane Florence, words can’t express how relieved we are to just be home. But, needless to say, after six moves and four rental houses, our stuff is everywhere. If there was ever a year for organization, this is it! As we focus on finally beginning our addition and reconfiguration of our upstairs in January, let’s just say that closet space, the laundry room and an organized office and mudroom are top priorities!

In the meantime, we’ll be making the most of what we have with these helpful tips from one of our most favorite design studios–and reveling in the glitter, the tinsel and the tissue paper everywhere. After all, it only comes one time a year…
