While the kitchen is a place to occasionally invest hours creating masterful meals, many of us are so busy that it also needs to offer quick-service functionality. Keep your kitchen stocked with your family’s favorite grab-and-go options. You’ll find our pantries prepped with cereal and granola bars (we love KIND).
According to the 2017 Houzz Kitchen Study, the contemporary style is the No. 1 look homeowners want for their kitchen (22% and rising). Granite is not the best choice in a contemporary kitchen, because of its golden tones or distinctive and somewhat busy pattern. As homeowners start choosing more modern and minimalist patterns and sleeker, cooler colors like greys and whites for their kitchens, quartz offers more options.
Wood is a common material for kitchens, from cabinets to walls to countertops. You can also use wood textures in the kitchen in surprising ways to create some visual interest and a style all your own. You can use wood in unexpected ways or in unexpected places to make a statement in a space. So if you’re looking for something creative to do with a kitchen design, take a look at the different ways to use wood textures in the kitchen.
Lastly, take the time to contemplate what aesthetic you’re going after in this space. Typically, breakfast nooks are more ‵casual‵ than formal. Ideally, they should feel more fun than stuffy in order to encourage everyday use.
Seating is the crucial factor of a breakfast nook. However, in this case, we’d hearten you to think beyond the standard table plus chairs. Get a little innovative with your seating. Breakfast nooks are supposed to be relaxed spaces along with some shapely or otherwise out-of-the-box seating canister go a long manner toward—driving home that feeling.
