My dream of a kitchen…
The style of my current kitchen is what I lovingly call “working with what I have.” It works for me for now, until I create the kitchen of my dreams of course. One of my biggest complaints about my kitchen it the state of my appliances. The stove and dishwasher were purchased by the previous owners before we bought the house. The are new, but not great. Add to that the fact that they are white. I’m more of a stainless style type of person. My refrigerator is stainless steel as is the microwave which I had installed once we moved in.
The kitchen of my dreams looks quite a bit different, starting with appliances that actually go together. The concept of a “suite” of appliances which complement each other help create a beautiful, functional kitchen. Electrolux’s “Suite Design” is a great example of this.
The clean lines and sleek design are a compliment to any kitchen. The counter depth refrigerator enhances the built in look. Matching appliances become the jumping off point for the rest of your kitchen design. A “suite” approach to your kitchen appliances can work in any style kitchen. Modern, minimalist, industrial, loft, country, eclectic, traditional or contemporary. The kitchens shown above have differing styles while the appliances are similar. The focus of renovating a kitchen can then be on how you want to incorporate what you like and what your family needs.
For now I feel the focal point of my current kitchen is the fact that the appliances don’t match! As I said, it will do for now. One day I hope to recreate the kitchens I see in my head. A island, a wall of pantry cabinets, a large sink, lots of light, some open shelving and matching appliances!
