If you are planning a kitchen makeover, you want it to be functional and beautiful. We have put together five ideas that you should consider for your kitchen renovation. When starting your kitchen design, it is important you trust your design to the professionals. At Verbeek, we are lucky enough to work with a great team within our company. Our designers work with you and your family to help create your dream kitchen.

1) Use two different cabinet finishes or combinations

Spark up your kitchen by using various combinations of wood and paint, or two different colours of paint! White upper cabinets with dark brown bases will prove to be a design leader in 2019. You can combine colours for a beautiful grouping of finishes. When you mix shades, you create an eye-catching contrast.

2) Add a chimney hood fan or decorative exhaust fan

Kitchen appliances can be more than utilitarian. Range hoods have become an extension of design and can impact a space. Choose a complementary material or colour to create a gorgeous focal point and help break up your cabinets.

3) Install open shelving

After tearing down outdated cabinets, consider installing open shelving in their place. Open shelves can be used when a layout seems too crowded or top heavy. Open shelves provide areas to display cookbooks, accessories or unique cookware.

4) Colour customization

Homeowners are no longer satisfied with cookie-cutter kitchen designs. They want something unique that builds character and personality or provides a bold statement. Manufacturing companies are providing the latest and greatest finish colours to appeal to the masses. They have teamed up with paint companies to provide an array of colour options for you to be inspired by.

5) Move over double bowl sinks

Since handwashing dishes isn’t a regular occurrence in households these days, the need for a double bowl sink is becoming less important. In part, the farmhouse design has become extremely popular. Farmhouse sinks are popular mostly for their large deep sizes, that allowed for more comfortable use and style. If the apron front sink doesn’t fit into your design, then opt for a single bowl under mount sink in the same width as a double bowl.
