Various kitchen lighting can make the kitchen space feel welcoming and warm.&nbsp;</p> <p>Besides bringing in the natural light through the windows for the sun's radiance to make the kitchen inviting, here are some of the best kitchen lighting trends for 2023, including;</p> <h2>&nbsp;</h2> <h2><strong>Exceptional Pendants Replacements</strong></h2> <p>Among popular kitchen lighting trends is the replacement of quicker lighting fixtures. Although pendants have been popular since way back, unique pendants replacements are taking over kitchen lighting options. Modern works of art to chandeliers let people choose and explore creativity when choosing the best kitchen lighting.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Lights With Black Finish</strong></h2> <p>For industrial kitchen lighting ideas, the look is getting an update for contemporary homes. Various&nbsp;<a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/a-guide-for-choosing-a-great-kitchen-island-for-your-home">kitchen styles</a>&nbsp;combined with industrial lights create a modern and versatile space. For whatever kind of kitchen, matte black light shades stand out, giving a modern look to classic industrial kitchen lights.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Metallic Mix &amp; Match Finishes</strong></h2> <p>Another popular kitchen lighting trend for 2023 is the mix-and-match metallic finishes. A combination of different metals brings out a stylish and unique appearance. This trend lets homeowners add a luxurious feel to the kitchen without setting aside a considerable budget.</p> <p>A mix and max between brass, gold, and ances is a lighting trend gaining popularity. Pairing black fixtures with bright copper or brass holders offer an attractive contrast throughout the kitchen.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Pendants In a Row</strong></h2> <p>Having the&nbsp;<a href="https://www.industville.co.uk/blogs/news/kitchen-lighting-ideas">pendants</a>&nbsp;in a row is a popular trend that does not seem to be going away anytime soon, even in 2023. Different pendant shapes feature over the kitchen island, often with a row of three, seven, or five pendants together with a schoolhouse or cones to provide a welcoming and refreshing look in the kitchen. If you wish t create drama and draw attention to the critical parts of your space, use oversized and large pendants to create that dramatic effect.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Small Vintage Lights</strong></h2> <p>Vintage-style kitchen lights help save space if the kitchen space is already tiny. Vintage lights or pendants bring about a dash of retro style to add character to the small space. Exposed bulb pendants are ideal for a small kitchen since they occupy little space and offer structure. Shadeless bulb pendants create a warm ambiance and a minimalistic aesthetic.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Modern Glass Lights</strong></h2> <p>Although regular glass lights offer the same effects as modern glass lights to enhance openness and flow in the kitchen, modern glass lights are becoming more popular. This trendy kitchen lighting results in function and form balance. Glass shades add elegance and exude a modern look.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Statement Lighting</strong></h2> <p>A trend that is coming back in 2023 kitchen lighting is&nbsp;<a href="https://www.vogue.com.au/vogue-living/design/kitchen-trends-2023/image-gallery/082010355c375806a46f0013edc67fa0">statement lighting</a>. The more oversized the lighting is, the better since lighting creates a solid and unique touch to the space. More bold and graphic art deco will heavily influence the kitchen lighting trends in 2023.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Use Of Downlights</strong></h2> <p>Using downlights is a kitchen lighting trend that will continue to rule in 2023. Downlights are essential in kitchen task lighting and accentuating architectural features. To ensure that the light blends in with the space, choose downlights of the correct size and ideally cool 4000k or 3000k warm color rendering index.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Layered Lighting</strong></h2> <p>Mastering the art of layering is essential when it comes to kitchen designs. Many downlighters are not ideal for the kitchen whenever you require lighting in specific kitchen areas. In that instance, the best lighting is&nbsp;<a href="https://www.homesandgardens.com/news/kitchen-trends-202526">layered lighting</a>&nbsp;to align with the kitchen functionality and layout.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Pale and White Shades</strong></h2> <p>Delicate white shades on the lights work well, especially in Scandi-inspired kitchens, and bring out a timeless factor. The opal white shades add a touch of airiness which blends well with natural materials. Hence, one can spend more time in the kitchen space. Kitchen lights need to be practical and cater to multi-functional spaces.</p> <p>At&nbsp;<a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/">Edesia Kitchen &amp; Bath Studio</a>, we can guide you in choosing the best kitchen island, achieving balance and symmetry in your kitchen, and choosing new appliances.&nbsp;<a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/contact-us">Contact us</a>&nbsp;if you are stuck on which trendy kitchen lighting to use in your kitchen.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a class="cta_button" href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/cs/ci/?pg=c445b294-ad2d-472e-9dfc-8f98c5bc3a38&amp;pid=95478&amp;ecid=&amp;hseid=&amp;hsic="><img class="hs-cta-img " style="border-width: 0px; /*hs-extra-styles*/; " alt="kitchen planning guide" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/95478/c445b294-ad2d-472e-9dfc-8f98c5bc3a38.png"></a></p> <img src="https://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=95478&amp;k=14&amp;r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.edesiakbs.com%2Fblog%2F10-best-kitchen-lighting-trends-for-2023&amp;bu=https%253A%252F%252Fwww.edesiakbs.com%252Fblog&amp;bvt=rss" alt="" width="1" height="1" style="min-height:1px!important;width:1px!important;border-width:0!important;margin-top:0!important;margin-bottom:0!important;margin-right:0!important;margin-left:0!important;padding-top:0!important;padding-bottom:0!important;padding-right:0!important;padding-left:0!important; "> Kitchen & Bath Trends Kitchen Remodels General Tue, 22 Nov 2022 13:15:00 GMT https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/10-best-kitchen-lighting-trends-for-2023 2022-11-22T13:15:00Z Edesia Kitchen & Bath Studio The 5 Best Products to Buy for a Bathroom Remodel in 2023 https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/the-5-best-products-to-buy-for-a-bathroom-remodel-in-2023 <div class="hs-featured-image-wrapper"> <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/the-5-best-products-to-buy-for-a-bathroom-remodel-in-2023" title="" class="hs-featured-image-link"> <img src="https://www.edesiakbs.com/hubfs/AdobeStock_85480545-1.jpeg" alt="Best Products to Buy for a Bathroom Remodel" class="hs-featured-image" style="width:auto !important; max-width:50%; float:left; margin:0 15px 15px 0;"> </a> </div> <p>Do you want to remodel your <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/">old bathroom</a>?

Do you want to solve some common kitchen dilemmas with stylish and custom-made storage organizers?</p> <p>Organizing a kitchen is and will always be perplexing with the number of gadgets, appliances, and cookware it holds. Finding creative and <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/home-kitchen-remodeling">innovative storage ideas</a> to organize your kitchen solves your storage dilemmas while achieving aesthetic appeal.</p> <p>Here we look at the trending kitchen storage ideas for 2023 that create comfortable and soothing spaces while standing the test of time.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>1. &nbsp; &nbsp;Custom Butler's Pantry</h2> <p>The days of cramped cabinets are long gone with the rise in the adoption of butler's pantries. A butler's pantry is also known as a working pantry, scullery, or functional pantry. It provides additional food preparation space, extra storage, and a hidden coffee bar, among other uses.</p> <p><a href="https://www.dimension-dbr.com/https://www.dimension-dbr.com/">According</a> to Dimension Inc CEO, "Customizable appliances that perfectly mimic the cabinetry are a trend that has been gaining speed for years. New in concealed kitchen design is the secret butler's pantry-hidden behind a matching cabinetry panel or a sliding 'wall' door."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>2. &nbsp; &nbsp;Integrated Kitchen Appliances</h2> <p>Are you tired of appliances sticking out in your kitchen like a sore thumb? Worry no more. You can adapt built-ins and clever paneling to integrate your appliances into your kitchen storage units. Appliances like microwaves and refrigerators can now recede into surrounding cabinetry while making a stylish fashion statement.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>3. &nbsp; &nbsp;Open Displays</h2> <p>Wire racks and open shelves provide enough storage space within easy reach while giving breathing room to the kitchen. Wall- to wall cabinets feel heavy, while open shelving breaks up the room while adding bits of interest to the space to bring relief from the use of many closed-door cabinets.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.veranda.com/home-decorators/design-trends/g41613201/kitchen-trends-2023/">Open displays</a> enable you to display your special collections while infusing their unique personality in the kitchen. An open display spices up your kitchen by displaying things you like to look at, like your favorite bowl or collection of cookbooks.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>4. &nbsp; &nbsp;Two-Toned Cabinets</h2> <p>Paint your kitchen cabinets to update them to include more than one color without making replacements. A two-toned cabinet creates the illusion and <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/flooring-your-kitchen-how-to-choose-the-best-flooring-material">contrast</a>, allowing you to embrace color without settling for a vibrant hue.</p> <p>The most <a href="https://www.bhg.com/kitchen/cabinets/styles/two-tone-kitchen-cabinets/">popular trend </a>focuses on balancing saturated tones like green or blue on the cabinets base with crisp white color on the top. Adopting darker colors below the <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/5-design-trends-in-kitchen-countertops-in-2022">kitchen countertop</a> level creates an open, bright, colorful, and visually balanced kitchen space.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>5. &nbsp; &nbsp;Modern Cellars</h2> <p>A modern-day wine cellar has transitioned from a cavernous underground cellar full of dusty bottles of vintage wine. Homeowners want exclusive and ambient space to store their fine wine at home. Modern wine cabinets are crafted to transform your wine collection into art while perfectly caring for your wine.</p> <p><a href="https://www.womanandhome.com/homes/kitchen-trends-2023/">Jo Jackson,</a> Fisher &amp; Paykel's market product manager, says, "Modern kitchens are also often designed as very light, open spaces with skylights or bi-fold doors and hard stone floors with underfloor heating. These kitchens are stunning and have become the centerpiece of people's homes. However, they do add a level of complexity when you're looking to install a wine cabinet, as both the light and heat can affect the storage of wine."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>6. &nbsp; &nbsp;Warming Drawers</h2> <p>If you regularly host friends at home, warming drawers come in handy. It's a trend that has stood the test of time and is gradually gaining ground. Warming drawers enable you to keep your food warm at optimum temperature while preparing other dishes before serving your guests.</p> <p>Warming drawers can be used in different ways, from keeping mugs and dishes warm before serving or as a dedicated space to enhance the rise of bread dough.

They're perfect for busy families who want to save time in the kitchen.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a class="cta_button" href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/cs/ci/?pg=c445b294-ad2d-472e-9dfc-8f98c5bc3a38&amp;pid=95478&amp;ecid=&amp;hseid=&amp;hsic="><img class="hs-cta-img " style="border-width: 0px; /*hs-extra-styles*/; " alt="kitchen planning guide" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/95478/c445b294-ad2d-472e-9dfc-8f98c5bc3a38.png"></a></p> <h2><strong>What Are Heated Countertops?</strong></h2> <p>You might be wondering what <a href="https://www.isfanow.org/heated-countertops">heated countertops</a> are. They're a type of countertop that uses heat to keep your kitchen space warm. This is a great cost-effective option if you live in a cold climate and want to avoid using your oven or stove to heat up your kitchen.</p> <p>Heated countertops come in various styles and colors, so you can find one that will match the look of your kitchen. They're also easy to install, and most models come with a built-in thermostat, so you can easily control the temperature.</p> <p>Heated countertops are a great way to stay warm during the winter and save on your energy bills.</p> <h2><strong>How Do Heated Countertops Work?</strong></h2> <p>How do <a href="https://thearchitectsdiary.com/what-makes-granite-kitchen-countertops-unbeatable/">heated countertops work</a>? Basically, the system has two parts: the heating element and the control module. The heating element is installed underneath your countertop, and the control module attaches to your oven.</p> <p>Once everything is hooked up, you just set your desired temperature, and the control module will take care of the rest. It will keep your countertops at a consistent temperature. No more worrying about your countertop getting too hot or too cold!</p> <h2><strong>The Benefits of Heated Countertops</strong></h2> <p>In addition to the beauty and style they bring to your kitchen, heated countertops offer many practical benefits. Here are some of the biggest advantages:</p> <p>First, heated countertops are energy-efficient. They use far less energy than traditional ovens or cooktops, so you can save money on your energy bill.</p> <p>Second, they're incredibly safe. Heated countertops are just warm enough, so you don't have to worry about burning your hands.</p> <p>Third, they're versatile. Heated countertops can be used for everything from frying and roasting to preparing delicate dishes like fish.</p> <p>Fourth, they're easy to use. Heated countertops come with simple-to-use controls that let you set the temperature just the way you want.</p> <p>So why not give heated countertops a try? They may just be the best decision you ever make for your kitchen.</p> <h2><strong>How to Choose the Right Heated Countertop for Your Kitchen</strong></h2> <p>When it comes to heated countertops, there are a few <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/having-a-hard-time-choosing-new-appliances-what-you-need-to-know">factors you need to take into account</a>. So, how do you choose the right one for your kitchen?</p> <p>First, think about your budget. There are several different options to choose from. You can go with a basic model, or if you want something more luxurious, there are plenty of high-end options available.</p> <p>Also, think about your needs. What kind of tasks will you be using your countertops for?

Heated countertops come in a range of sizes and shapes, so you need to make sure you pick one that will fit comfortably in your kitchen.</p> <h2><strong>Conclusion</strong></h2> <p>If you're in the market for a new countertop and looking for something that will improve your kitchen experience, you should definitely consider a heated countertop.

When remodeling your kitchen, you can add a personal touch with trends in kitchen hoods for 2023.</p> <p>Remodels can be quite costly, and you need to get them right from the onset. When remodeling your kitchen, you can add a personal touch with trends in kitchen hoods for 2023.</p> <p>The trends will give you a wide room to play around. Give your kitchen a new look by choosing from the trends below.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>1. Under Cabinet</h2> <p>If you're looking for something that can help save up on space, you need to look at this trend. The under-cabinet is one of the best range hoods as they fit beneath the existing cabinets.</p> <p>You don't have to struggle as much or make a major remodel with this hood. When you have cabinets already above the range, it only makes work easier to have the hood underneath.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>2. Limestone</h2> <p>As a young, classy couple, you want something with a touch of elegance and attraction. The limestone hood is the one that screams all that and much more. The hoods are majorly hand-crafted to ensure they have an exceptional design.</p> <p>The other thing you'll love about the limestone hood is that they blend with any aesthetic of the room. It's the type of hood that you want for a neutral kitchen; it's inviting and relaxing.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>3. Stainless Steel</h2> <p>Forget the classy feel for a second; the go-to for most kitchen hoods today is stainless steel. Most stainless-steel hoods are sleek and can easily complement each stainless appliance in the kitchen. The hoods are quite modern and can be discreet if you want them to be, as they have a flat front.</p> <p><br>Most people redesign their kitchen's look to this hood because they aren't slanted and don't cover the entire range. The idea shouldn't worry you as the design absorbs cooking fumes effectively.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>4. Disappearing Range Hood</h2> <p>The disappearing acts can serve you well if you are looking for something that's even more discreet than the stainless-steel hoods. First, you need to get it right, as the hood needs to blend with the entire design of the kitchen.</p> <p><br>These hoods have clean lines and don't interfere with the line of kitchen cabinets. You will certainly love the design as you conceal the hoods effectively and don't interfere with any design. You can have this hood in any kitchen – traditional, modern, contemporary, or country.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>5. Tiled Hoods</h2> <p>If you have a tile-themed kitchen design, then tiled hoods may be the way to go. One of the top reasons for this hood is that it has a clean appearance and can be easy to maintain. Once you have the right colors for the tiles that blend with the kitchen theme, you have a great piece.</p> <p>With a tiled kitchen hood, you can opt for a single tile for the entire hood. You can also opt to be creative with it if you wish as long as it matches the countertop tiles, floor, or backsplash.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>6. Painted Hoods</h2> <p>The painted hood is what you want when you are looking for a more traditional metal range hood. When you go for this design, you need something that matches the cabinets and maintains cohesion at the top. You can then paint the hood in a color that resonates with the cabinets. With a painted hood, you can go for black, white, cool blue, or any color that works with your kitchen.</p> <p>You can now say goodbye to the old kitchen hood ideas as new and improved ones are already here. 2023 is certainly a year for change, and you can maximize it with a new kitchen hood.

Without changing the structure of your cabinets, you can completely transform the look and feel of your kitchen's primary storage.&nbsp;</p> <p>Changing your cabinet doors is one of the cleverest ways to remodel your kitchen. Without changing the structure of your cabinets, you can completely transform the look and feel of your kitchen's primary storage.&nbsp;</p> <p>You can choose frosted glass cabinet doors with shelf lights that make them glow, or you can choose elegant hand-carved cabinets. You can update the finish, beveling, and the origin of your cabinet's apparent design. You can also change how your cabinet doors hang on the cabinet itself.</p> <p>Depending on size, cut, and hinges, your cabinet doors could be set at full overlay, partial overlay, or inset into the face frame.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a class="cta_button" href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/cs/ci/?pg=c445b294-ad2d-472e-9dfc-8f98c5bc3a38&amp;pid=95478&amp;ecid=&amp;hseid=&amp;hsic="><img class="hs-cta-img " style="border-width: 0px; /*hs-extra-styles*/; " alt="kitchen planning guide" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/95478/c445b294-ad2d-472e-9dfc-8f98c5bc3a38.png"></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>What Is Overlay in Cabinet Doors?</h2> <p>Cabinet door overlay determines how much of the face frame, or framing cabinet panel, is seen around the door structure. The face frame is the cabinet piece that door hinges connect to and can be subtly decorative when exposed. Each type of cabinet door overlay exposes a different amount of the face frame, creating an added detail to your chosen kitchen style.</p> <p>How do you know which overlay type to choose? It's all about aesthetics, so let's look at each of your options.</p> <h3>Full Overlay Doors</h3> <p>Full overlay cabinet doors and drawers cover the face frame completely. Each door and drawer come together snugly but just loose enough not to snag or drag so that the face frame is only seen when cabinets are open. Full overlay is popular for extremely modern and minimalist designs and has developed a signature for wide designs and hard edges.</p> <p>Full overlay doors are also popular among farmhouse-style kitchen designs where each cabinet door is chunky and takes up a little extra space with rounded bevelling.</p> <h3>Partial Overlay Doors</h3> <p>Partial overlay is considered normal and is very popular in residential kitchen design. Partial overlay is defined by exposing some, but not all, of the face frame. Typically, there is about 1/2" left between the edge and each cabinet door or drawer face, creating bout a 1-2" gap between items.</p> <p>This design is remarkably easy to use, as chefs can hook their fingers around the cabinet door to pull it open (or bump it closed) with ease using the small channel between each door's edge.</p> <h3>Inset Cabinet Doors</h3> <p>Inset cabinet doors are when the cabinet doors fit snugly into the face frame itself. This achieves a similar look to full overlay but by insetting the doors instead of a snug fit over the top.</p> <p>Inset cabinet doors require different hinging and often come at a higher price due to the level of expertise necessary to perfectly fit the cabinet doors and drawer faces into the face frame.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>How to Choose Your Cabinet Door Overlay</h2> <p>How do you choose between the types of overlay for your cabinet doors? It's easier than you think if you're ready to make both practical and aesthetic decisions.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>The Look and Style You Want to Create</h3> <p>First, consider the look you want to see in your kitchen. Both full-overlay and inset provide a flush and smooth look for your cabinets and drawers, but inset has a more traditional look and requires artisan tooling.</p> <p>If you're looking to create a cozy modern contemporary kitchen, then a partial overlay design may be ideal.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Easy to Use &amp; No-Snag Cabinet Design</h3> <p>Don't forget that life in your kitchen is determined by ease of use - and freedom from snags. If your cabinets have too sharp of corners, they may start to snag household clothing.</p> <p>Consider the cabinet handles you want to install on full-overlay and inset rooms or choose to go handle-free with partial overlay cabinet doors.</p> <h3>Keeping or Moving the Hinges</h3> <p>Lastly, don't forget the hinges. Each type of cabinet door requires you to hinge the door at a different spot.

Do you want to practice that in your kitchen? A kitchen is one of the busiest and most significant rooms in your home that is constantly in use all day.&nbsp;</p> <p>Apart from making and eating meals, your family spends ample time in the kitchen playing games or kids completing their homework on the kitchen counter.</p> <p>A well-balanced kitchen offers you and your family a sense of security and relaxation. To achieve this, you need to maintain symmetry and balance throughout your kitchen. Balance makes your kitchen space enjoyable, relaxing, and neat by making everything fall in place.</p> <p>Here are 8 ways to use <a href="https://www.homeadvisorhomesource.com/symmetry-in-kitchen-design/">symmetry and balance</a> to complete your kitchen design;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>1. &nbsp; &nbsp;Find Your Anchor</h2> <p>To achieve symmetry and balance, you must first pinpoint a pivot point to focus your attention and anchor the kitchen. It could be a sink, cooker, or dining table at the center of the room.</p> <p>Every other object in the kitchen should blend and work around your point of focus.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>2. &nbsp; &nbsp;Lighting</h2> <p>To balance your overhead fixtures, consider replacing single off-center fixtures with a prominent center fixture or two evenly spaced and matching fixtures to add balance to the kitchen.</p> <p>For a kitchen with a large window, you can balance the lighting using mirrored tiles or hanging a mirror or the other end for a backsplash effect opposite the window.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>3. &nbsp; &nbsp;Space &amp; Scale</h2> <p>Avoid predictable and boring looks in the kitchen when using uniform-sized decor pieces. Many large decor pieces appear domineering and overbearing, while small pieces come across as busy and chaotic.</p> <p>Go for big and small-scale decor pieces to create a balanced appearance. You can use large pieces of furniture to draw away attention from the asymmetrical spaces, which works to your advantage.&nbsp;</p> <p>Consider spacing your furniture to derive a harmonious look in the kitchen while keeping the negative spaces asymmetrical. Think of your furniture in terms of visual weight and not the actual size.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>4. &nbsp; &nbsp;Keep Your Seating Balanced</h2> <p>The <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/5-design-trends-in-kitchen-countertops-in-2022">kitchen bar or island</a> serves many purposes and is not limited to cooking. It's where you hang out with guests and kids or complete your homework.</p> <p>To keep it balanced, opt for two to three matching bar stools that are evenly spaced. When you have company, it goes a long way in creating a symmetrical appearance illusion.</p> <h2><br>5. &nbsp; &nbsp;Shelving and Storage</h2> <p>Shelving and storage space is essential in the kitchen. You need ample room to store food and cutlery and small appliances to avoid messy kitchen counters. Balancing your shelving and storage makes the units appealing.</p> <p>If you need a shelving unit or a pantry on one corner, consider adding a similar one on the other end. Having two increases your storage space while adding symmetry to your kitchen. If this doesn't work out, consider using similar cabinets to keep the kitchen balanced.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>6. &nbsp; &nbsp;Color &amp; Texture</h2> <p>Color and texture are essential in creating symmetry in your kitchen. To achieve this, avoid materials or shades with random pop colors. For example, pair an oak dining table with oak cabinets or brushed steel dining chairs with brushed steel kitchen appliances. Pairing texture and color creates harmony and a relaxing sense of oneness while making your kitchen visually appealing.</p> <h2><br>7. &nbsp; &nbsp;Pay Attention to Lines</h2> <p>Imagine your kitchen as a grid made of horizontal and vertical lines that you can use to your advantage to influence the visual looks. Symmetry lines running from the ceiling to the <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/flooring-your-kitchen-how-to-choose-the-best-flooring-material">floor </a>and long curtains heighten the room while creating an enhanced sense of space.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>8. &nbsp; &nbsp;Break The Rules &nbsp; &nbsp;</h2> <p>It's never good to go overboard to achieve symmetry and balance. For a kitchen to be aesthetically appealing, symmetry and asymmetry are needed. The kitchen is home to an assortment of asymmetry accessories and cooking appliance elements that complement the symmetry elements.&nbsp;</p> <p>The act of rebellion makes your spaces more visually attractive while adding character, depth, and vibrancy to your kitchen.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Do you want to redesign and complement your kitchen with symmetry and balance? <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/tel:781.238.8800">Schedule a call</a> or <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/cs/c/?cta_guid=acabd39e-b114-4cc5-b810-8bfe090e133a&amp;signature=AAH58kEdyWutayAC7a6NNuL5NbPhT1WV3w&amp;pageId=27344461691&amp;placement_guid=044c4f5e-0b48-4e45-ac31-ac6532dfda32&amp;click=2a36ed5d-4ebf-4581-b6fa-3b722a36c1f8&amp;hsutk=a6c9eea19fb32ac4f29121521d849df6&amp;canon=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.edesiakbs.com%2F&amp;portal_id=95478&amp;redirect_url=APefjpH2_AloZ4_mdo75dH2jmVcSjSY1aJNkcc18dnEBmSx4qBZZQmo9OCeaWT-mBslMO3IJpeypwjk0I71hzqA6bl4r_DDTi3GX6DubX58zRLsECfATi2jXOGsSFLTSRclEy2ZK02sD&amp;__hstc=200777585.a6c9eea19fb32ac4f29121521d849df6.1666340823427.1666340823427.1666340823427.1&amp;__hssc=200777585.1.1666340823428&amp;__hsfp=2300924123&amp;contentType=standard-page">consultation </a>today. <a href="https://www-edesiakbs-com.sandbox.hs-sites.com/our-work?__hstc=200777585.a6c9eea19fb32ac4f29121521d849df6.1666340823427.1666340823427.1666340823427.1&amp;__hssc=200777585.1.1666340823428&amp;__hsfp=2300924123">View our projects</a> or download our<a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/cs/c/?cta_guid=5ad104cc-3392-426c-a48a-7c93843d136d&amp;signature=AAH58kGt6QKnMA-n8B6SQdiqeLmhvhbPnA&amp;pageId=27344461691&amp;placement_guid=bdadbdb3-241b-4fa9-8a4a-f39d3bfcdf15&amp;click=de81db73-1526-457f-ba83-df6d525f3195&amp;hsutk=a6c9eea19fb32ac4f29121521d849df6&amp;canon=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.edesiakbs.com%2F&amp;portal_id=95478&amp;redirect_url=APefjpGZ2RXpgxK4XzYICnHRIYlfCf_hwsiLExSQp7Nq5dYRSX_sx7hPcKdEqMiPZkIPAWnXqeGBDcTXJaA4i3NmI-uIgCH0ZYBuh6chglhavH_OaRVuNOyrkKJPUvJmALuaTPIYiPr2xw4kbnle61jdJ_LHq3MTp5qlHJN-Ve-oUA59ZKEapFo&amp;__hstc=200777585.a6c9eea19fb32ac4f29121521d849df6.1666340823427.1666340823427.1666340823427.1&amp;__hssc=200777585.1.1666340823428&amp;__hsfp=2300924123&amp;contentType=standard-page"> planning guide</a> and <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/cs/c/?cta_guid=7c0d12df-d0a6-42d9-9578-c74f3b831f67&amp;signature=AAH58kGA8PWeIBNz5e_MTfnbLMLvAT5SoA&amp;pageId=27344461691&amp;placement_guid=5cbb49f9-064f-4450-bc86-ae955e36da1e&amp;click=24e87487-3c85-4121-ac22-2925658b5e17&amp;hsutk=a6c9eea19fb32ac4f29121521d849df6&amp;canon=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.edesiakbs.com%2F&amp;portal_id=95478&amp;redirect_url=APefjpE4NY9G8hRrpCOr7soLocXSAG584VyTxHF85F53UcvWHt7fXOgRDPCybMlDnudobxORDZhw9fVtcPiLJgTNLLyU3NBBGRTZSGT1n2NOrQZ8QgnwhQgc-Z8JhUbvOqkoTSRT8eDGLTG2szMbZZC_ev0JIBc9jg&amp;__hstc=200777585.a6c9eea19fb32ac4f29121521d849df6.1666340823427.1666340823427.1666340823427.1&amp;__hssc=200777585.1.1666340823428&amp;__hsfp=2300924123&amp;contentType=standard-page">get started</a> with a remodel.

This post will discuss some of the top considerations when looking for a kitchen island.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Style</h2> <p>Style is the first thing to consider when looking for a kitchen island. You want to ensure it fits in with the rest of your kitchen and that it's something you'll use regularly. If you have a traditional-style kitchen, an island with modern lines probably won't fit in well.</p> <p>Similarly, if most of your furniture is modern and sleek, an old-fashioned wooden island would look out of place. Either way, style should be tailored to your home's existing decor rather than trying to conform all aspects of the room around one aspect of design (even though it might seem like a good idea).</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Do You Have Enough Space For A Kitchen Island?</h2> <p>&gt;Are you looking for a large island? Or do you just have limited space?</p> <p>&gt;What size and shape would work best in your kitchen? A small, round island might be good if your kitchen has a lot of windows or other features that take up valuable countertop space. If you need more storage or prep space, consider an L-shaped island with barstools or breakfast bar seating at one end.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>What Is The Purpose Of Your Kitchen Island?</h2> <p>When looking for a kitchen island, it's important to consider your island's purpose. If you want an extra place for food prep, you might want one with drawers and cabinets. An island with stools or benches is ideal if you want a more casual dining area. And if you need storage space in your kitchen, look for a versatile piece that can double as extra countertop space.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>What Shape Should Your Kitchen Island Be?</h2> <p>The shape of the island can also impact its usefulness. Square and rectangular islands are the most popular shapes, but round islands are good for small kitchens. Oval islands are good for large kitchens, as they provide more room to maneuver around them.</p> <p>Builders can also build custom-designed islands in various sizes and heights to match your kitchen's space and your needs.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>What Type Of Countertop Do You Want On Your Island?</h2> <p>There are so many countertops to choose from it can be hard to know where to start. Here's a short list of some of the most popular options:</p> <ul> <li>Stone (granite, marble, onyx)</li> <li>Concrete</li> <li>Tile</li> <li>Glass</li> </ul> <p>Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to kitchen islands. Some materials are more expensive than others; some are more practical than others; some are more durable than others, and some are more environmentally friendly than others. Some may even be better suited for your design's aesthetic needs!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>What Features And Appliances Do You Need On Your Island?</h2> <p>When you look for a kitchen island, it's important to consider what features and appliances you need on your island. Kitchen islands can be used for more than just extra storage; they can also be used for food preparation, eating, extra seating, and extra storage.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Conclusion</strong></p> <p>Kitchen islands are a great way to add extra storage space and provide additional workspace in your kitchen. But before you purchase one, make sure that there is enough room for it in your home and that it will fit with your current decor.

How do you know which features are essential and which ones don't matter? Here are some tips on choosing new appliances that will suit your needs.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Think about how you use your current ones</h2> <p>The first step when choosing a new appliance is to consider how you use your current ones. What do they do for you? How often do you use them? How much time does it take for them to complete their tasks?</p> <p>Using your appliances will help you choose the most important features when buying new ones.</p> <p>If these questions make sense and give insight into what features are important to you, it's time to consider what kind of appliances will allow those needs. For example, if home cooking is an integral part of your life, but there are not many places where food preparation can happen comfortably at home (e.g., no oven), a microwave could fill this gap in functionality while providing minimal storage space since microwaves operate without leaving any room behind them — no cabinets required!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Identify what features are important to you.</h2> <p>Once you've identified your style and preferences, the next step is to consider what features are important to you. For example, if you're looking for an appliance that can cook large amounts of food quickly, then a range with a large capacity may be good for you. However, if cooking only 1-2 times per week isn't a big deal in terms of time or money spent on groceries, then something small and easy to clean might be more appropriate.</p> <p>It's also essential to consider how often people will be eating at your house when shopping for appliances—you want something with enough space inside so everyone can fit comfortably around it without crowding around their plates!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Consider energy-saving options.</h2> <p>Choosing energy-efficient appliances is one of the most important things you can do to save money. Energy Star ratings provide a rating system for devices and their efficiency, while some models have built-in timers that shut off after set periods. This helps reduce energy costs by leaving lights on longer or turning off appliances when they're not in use.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Don't rush.</h2> <p>When you're shopping for appliances, there are many things to consider. The first one is that it's not always easy to know what kind of appliances you need and how much they'll cost. And if you're looking at a big-ticket item like an oven or microwave, it can be tempting to go with the lowest price on something that seems like it would work fine until tomorrow morning when the first thing your kid will do is throw their cookies all over them. But before making any hasty decisions about what kind of appliance(s) will best serve your needs, take some time to consider these questions:</p> <ul> <li>What type of cooking environment do I have?</li> <li>How much time do I have?</li> <li>Do I want energy efficiency in my kitchen?</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Research the options you're interested in before you commit to a purchase.</h2> <p>It's essential to do some research before committing to a purchase. This will help you find the right appliance for your home and budget, but it also allows you to learn more about how each product works and its pros and cons.</p> <ul> <li>Don't buy anything without doing some research first. You shouldn't just go by what you see in stores—you should ask questions about any appliance that catches your eye!</li> <li>Don't be afraid of walking away from an item if it doesn't seem right for your needs or lifestyle; there are plenty more options out there waiting for someone else who might want them more than you do!</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Pay attention to capacity and size.</h2> <p>Capacity and size are critical factors when choosing a new appliance. Capacity is how much the machine can hold, while the size refers to its overall size.</p> <p>The capacity of your refrigerator will vary depending on what you store in it, but some general guidelines can help you determine how much space your fridge needs:</p> <ul> <li>If you have a lot of groceries, look for one with at least 30 pounds (13 kilograms) of food. The bigger models cost more, but they're worth it if they accommodate everything you want to keep cold or frozen all year round.</li> <li>If space is an issue in other areas of your kitchen (like behind counters), opt for smaller refrigerators with capacities between 25 and 40 pounds (11–18 kilograms). These sizes don't take up much room but still allow for ample storage space—enough for most families' weekly groceries!</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Pick something that won't be outdated in a few years.</h2> <p>You can't go wrong with a product that will still be in style in a few years. If you buy an obsolete appliance in two years, it will be harder to resell or trade-in for one of equal value—the more extended the warranty, the better. Additionally, look for appliances with more features and greater energy efficiency (EPS).</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Don't neglect any included accessories.</h2> <ul> <li>Don't neglect any included accessories.</li> <li>Be sure to check for warranties before purchasing an appliance.</li> <li>Consider energy efficiency, which can be good or bad depending on your needs and habits.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Bottom line</h2> <p><a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com">Edesia Kitchen &amp; Bath</a> Studio is the place to go if you're in the market for new appliances.

Maybe you found a house in your ideal neighborhood within your budget, only to realize that you aren't in love with the bathroom.</p> <p>Or, if you're already a homeowner, you might want to finally <a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/alexa-remodel-my-bathroom-what-you-can-do-with-a-smart-bathroom">upgrade to a smart bathroom</a>&nbsp;to match the rest of your smart home. Regardless, if you've never remodeled your home before, it can seem like an enormous and&nbsp;<a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/length-of-a-bathroom-remodel-how-long-will-your-project-take">lengthy job</a>&nbsp;to take on.&nbsp;</p> <p>Homeowners aren't just choosing to remodel their homes for aesthetic reasons. With interest rates hiking up over 2.5% in 2022 alone, people prefer to renovate their current homes instead of buying a new home. According to a new study by&nbsp;<a href="https://housemethod.com/home-warranty/state-of-remodeling/">House Method</a>, 55% of homeowners reported renovating a part of their home in the past year, with 27% of them focusing on&nbsp;<a href="https://www.edesiakbs.com/blog/bathroom-plumbing-remodeling-ideas-and-trends-for-2022-2023">bathroom renovations</a>. It's no surprise the bathroom is the most popular room in the house to remodel.&nbsp;</p> <p>So, if you're in the market for a full bathroom remodel, you're in the right place. With some preparation, research, and a little bit of patience, you can transform your outdated bathroom into a beautiful space that feels more like <em>you.&nbsp;</em>Here are 11 steps on how to approach a bathroom renovation.</p> <h2>1. Search for some inspiration</h2> <p>What look do you want to achieve ultimately? You more than likely already have ideas of what your dream bathroom would look like, but it can be difficult to match colors and styles without seeing examples. There are many resources for DIYers to gather ideas, such as Pinterest, Instagram, and home design websites. One of our favorite platforms is <a href="https://www.pinterest.com/">Pinterest</a> because you can save inspirational photos in different folders. For example, you can create a folder specifically for bathtub ideas and compare them side-by-side before making your final decision.</p> <p>Looking through images of different bathrooms can indicate details, such as lighting positioning or tile grout color, that you might've not thought of. Knowing what you're looking for will save you time and money in the long run.</p> <h2>2. Decide what you need in a bathroom and finalize the design</h2> <p>Compiling a list of must-haves is essential to carry out a full bathroom remodel. The last thing you want is to reach the end of your renovation and decide you want a bathtub instead of a standing shower. Take time to jot down the items that need updating, adding, or trashing. Things to consider:</p> <ul> <li>Bathtub</li> <li>Standing shower</li> <li>Shower door</li> <li>Mirrors</li> <li>Shelving</li> <li>Medicine cabinet</li> <li>Ventilation</li> <li>Heated bathroom floors</li> <li>Specialty toilets (heated, self-cleaning, etc.)</li> </ul> <p>Once you've chosen what you need in your bathroom, you can start designing it. You'll want to consider where your lighting fixtures go, what color scheme you want, where you'll place any bathroom furniture, etc. If this step is overwhelming, you can always reach out to a contractor to help you sketch a design.</p> <h2>3. Create a budget (and try to stick to it)</h2> <p>You're now ready to create a budget, assuming you've finalized your list of items to update. Don't skip this step! Budgeting allows you to get a sense of how much you're going to spend, and if you're financially stable to afford it. You don't want to realize you're unable to finish a project and stop mid-way. Things to consider:</p> <ul> <li>material costs</li> <li>permit costs</li> <li>inspection costs and fees</li> <li>worker's wages (if you're hiring a contractor or workers)</li> <li>design fees</li> </ul> <h2>4. Manage time expectations</h2> <p>Bathroom renovations often take more time than you'd think. If you're tackling the renovation yourself, you'll want to allow more time for each step, as you're likely to be learning along the way. Furthermore, you'll want to account for delays in materials and products. Chances are, not every step will go as planned, so managing your expectations can ease some frustrations that come with the building.</p> <p>If this is a primary bath, move out of the bedroom!&nbsp; Dust will get into your space, regardless of the dust barriers.&nbsp; You will feel better living in a dust free bedroom while the workers need to get in and out, starting early in the mornings.</p> <h2>5. Get permits</h2> <p>You'll want to comply with your local building codes and obtain the correct permits necessary. Depending on your city, you'll have different renovation permits to acquire. If you've hired a contractor, he or she can advise you on what jobs need permits.</p> <h2>6. Electrical and plumbing work</h2> <p>While there are many YouTube videos on how to run electrical wires and install plumbing lines, if you aren't confident, we highly recommend hiring a professional electrician and plumber to take care of this step for you. It can be confusing and downright dangerous to work with live wires, especially if you aren't the one who installed the electrics in your house. However, here are some things you can consider before speaking to a professional:</p> <ul> <li>determine where you want outlets and light switches</li> <li>consider buying waterproof outlets</li> <li>the size of your lighting fixtures</li> <li>position the ventilation fan</li> <li>choose the location for your shower, bathtub, toilet, and sink</li> </ul> <h2>7. Work on walls and floors</h2> <p>Whew! The tough part of the job is over, so let's get to the fun part where you'll start seeing results. Installing your walls and floors is easy because you've already chosen what you want in step two. You'll want to remember that bathrooms are often moist or wet, so installing waterproof walls, such as tiles, and non-slip floors is the key to building a durable bathroom.</p> <h2>8. Ventilation</h2> <p>A good ventilation system adequately removes moisture in a bathroom. Failing to include a vent can cause problems down the line, such as growing mold and wet ceilings. Choose the right fan for the size of your bathroom, and install it in a centralized spot.</p> <h2>9. Install bathroom fixtures</h2> <p>At this stage, your bathroom should be looking pretty good! Install your bathtub, shower,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.lowes.com/n/how-to/install-vanity-sink">vanity sink</a>, and toilet.</p> <h2>10. Build bathroom furniture</h2> <p>After installing your bathroom fixtures, you're ready to start building and placing your cabinets, shelves, and any other furniture you've purchased. Your bathroom furniture is ideally placed conveniently to maximize the space in your bathroom, without compromising the style.</p> <h2>11. Add the finishing touches</h2> <p>Congratulations on reaching this step, as you're now almost finished with your bathroom remodel. At this point, you're just adding finishing touches to your bathroom to personalize the space. Here's what we recommend adding:</p> <ul> <li>soap dishes</li> <li>trash cans</li> <li>color coordinated towels and bath rugs</li> <li>extra shelving</li> <li>towel bars</li> <li>hooks</li> <li>mirrors</li> <li>wall decorations</li> <li>plants</li> </ul> <h2>Schedule a consultation with Edesia Kitchen &amp; Bath Studio Inc.</h2> <p>Any renovating job can be stressful, and while you can do all the hard work yourself, there's also no shame in reaching out to a professional remodeling company to take the weight off your shoulders.
