Original Ideas to Implement into a New Kitchen Design

Categories: Design|Kitchens

When planning a new kitchen design, many homeowners will have some idea of what they would like to see in the final product. Usually, though, it’s difficult for these homeowners to say exactly what they want. They see pictures in magazines or videos online of their dream kitchens, but it may not be the case that they want exactly what they see. Often, it’s simply impossible to do so – budgetary, spatial, or time constraints can all play a major factor in a new kitchen design. As a designer, one of your key objectives is to take ideas from the homeowner and interpret them to create something original which makes the most out of the space you’re working on. Here are just a few of the ways you can do just that.

Color Considerations

While white kitchens are still somewhat desired, their popularity is nowhere near what it used to be. Nowadays using color well is a major factor in determining the aesthetic success of a new kitchen design. Suggest neutral tones to the homeowner for wall and backsplash colors – these tones are more on-trend and can create visual interest in the kitchen design. Earthy colors are in vogue at the moment, so suggesting light greens is a great move.

Countertops and Appliances

Granite and marble countertops are definitely more desirable for many homeowners, but they don’t tend to pair very well with the neutral colors that you’ll be steering your client towards. Instead, opt for concrete or quartz countertops. In addition, while stainless steel is a popular choice for kitchen appliances, their difficulty to keep clean can turn some homeowners off. Black stainless steel, on the other hand, is much easier to maintain and it goes well with any kitchen aesthetic!


Kitchen cabinets are a great place to add details to make a kitchen design truly original. From the colors of the cabinets to the material and design of the handles, you have a lot of flexibility.

All of the individual pieces of a kitchen design should synergize with each other if it is to create a cohesive aesthetic. But by following these tips, you can ensure that your client’s kitchen fits their vision of their dream kitchen while staying original and on-trend!
