Inspiration

What Is Your Style?

If you are not sure what your personal style is, find out now. Knowing what inspires you will help you select kitchen and bath fixtures and accents that you will love year after year. Follow these steps to discover your unique preference:

  1. Save images of the styles you love. Once you have a collection, look at them and see if there are similarities in colour, print or style.
  2. Spend time in your favourite spaces. Can you see a pattern as to why they are your favourite? A repeated colour or reoccurring print?
  3. Look at the artwork in your home. Do you have a favourite piece? If so, is it bright and uplifting or classy and traditional?
  4. Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert? Are you outgoing or more reserved? Your personality usually influences your style.
  5. Does the colour green have a calming effect on you? Does blue make you smile? Look at a range of colours and see how you react to them emotionally.

Traditional, trendy, earthy or classic—you may find you have distinct tastes or discover that you like elements from different styles depending on the space.

Kitchen Prep: Getting Ready for the Big Remodel

Before the faucets are picked out and the appliances ordered, there are a few steps you should take to prepare your kitchen and yourself for its renovation.

Make a budget, and stick to it

Planning your budget is the first thing you should do to prepare for a kitchen remodel. If you do not have a budget, it will be very easy for you to overspend quickly. Click here for a kitchen renovation check list and budget.

Assess your existing kitchen

Does your current layout work for you and your family? Is it the best use of space? If you have problem areas, such as an ill-placed dishwasher, now is the time to make changes. Consider your lifestyle as well. If you like to entertain and cook, talk to your contractor or designer about opening up your design.

Decide on a contractor

Talk to a few contractors before you select one. Get referrals and ask if they obtain necessary permits for you. You may also want to consider hiring a designer. If you are planning a major renovation, they can help you with the design. Once you select a contractor, ask if they work or recommend a designer in the area. A pre-existing contractor-designer relationship is beneficial to the renovation process.

Measure, Measure, Measure!

If you are thinking of purchasing new fixtures or appliances, know how much room you have before you go shopping. Even if you are not performing a major renovation, take measurements of your entire kitchen and make note of the style of sink (how many holes), and store the information on your phone for quick access. Being prepared will allow our team to find the perfect pieces for you and eliminate any guesswork or returns.

It’s not that easy to make the right choice.
