Lifestyle Driven Design…Furnishings for Every Room in Your Home

Lifestyle Driven Design…Furnishings for Every Room in Your Home



Transforming Your Kitchen into a Welcoming Gathering Space

Today’s trend in new housing construction or when renovating is to have an open floor plan. Many layouts place the kitchen in the middle of the house, allowing it to become the heart of the home. It has been my observation that it does not matter whether the home is large or small, kitchens are always the gathering spot for family and friends.

Creating a Functional and Inviting Kitchen Space

Because of this, we want to ensure that the kitchen is foremost functional and inviting. The best way to achieve this is to ensure that your accessories and wall art are embellishments to the space and consistent with those used throughout the house. Remember, there is no reason not to hang a gallery piece of art on a kitchen wall when it is the focal point of the room that everyone gathers in.

Fostering an Environment for Enjoyment

While we always strive to make a great first impression when someone visits your home, we know that veryone comes together in the kitchen to enjoy good food, fine wine, and conversation. So, you want to create an environment that best suits these gatherings. This space can be casual and cozy or more formal and upscale. A beautiful mirror is an option when it doesn’t reflect the sink or appliances; it will create an illusion of more space when used in a smaller one.

Personalizing Your Space with Open Shelving

Blank walls provide the perfect backdrop for open shelving and are an excellent way to bring personal character to your room. There are many options in selecting this shelving. I like using those that float to hold unique art objects, and they can be made of wood or glass, depending on your design style. Floating shelves allow you flexibility in placement.

Incorporating Stylish Storage Solutions

When space permits, another idea for that blank wall is an open wine rack or cabinet. Many beautiful pieces of new and antique furniture fall under this category and are sure to be functional while making a significant design statement.

Choosing the Right Seating for Comfort and Style

Let’s talk about kitchen seating. Be sure that your choice of chairs, bar, and counter stools complements your kitchen design. These are often the most sat-in chairs in the house, so make sure they are comfortable.

Lighting: Setting the Ambiance

Lighting is pivotal in creating the right atmosphere. Chandeliers, pendants, recessed cans, or spotlights can bring drama and ambiance to the space. Consider installing dimmer switches to adjust the lighting according to the mood and occasion for added versatility.

These are just a few thoughtful additions to make your kitchen the ideal space for entertaining friends and family, brought to you by Tuscany Fine Furnishings in Roswell, GA.
