Karen Ferreyra: Great Interior Design Starts With A Great Layout

 

I'm Karen from Karen Ferreyra Interiors.

How do you design a dream kitchen? Whether building a new home or remodeling, my answer is the same -- start with a great layout. It determines the placement of structural elements such as doors and windows and defines areas with cabinets, counters, sinks and appliances.

Although cabinet door style is the main element that impacts the overall look of your kitchen -- lighting, hardware, countertop and flooring are elements that will create cohesiveness within the design.

Remember to factor in time and budget for a backsplash. With many options available, it is the perfect area to add character and inject personality into your kitchen.

If the kitchen is part of an open plan, consider integrating adjoining areas such as the family room or dining room into the kitchen through the use of color.

Whether you cook like a chef, enjoy baking, craft projects or love to entertain, a successful design will cater to your specific needs and help you achieve your dream kitchen!

This is a great design tip to bring style to your home.
