Mixed Materials

To mix or not to mix, that is the question. Mixing different fabrics and metals and incorporating different patterns can be absolutely stunning if it is done correctly. Mixing materials and using contrasting tones is a great way to add individual style to your home. For some inspiration, check out this article from Better Homes & Gardens.

Under-Cabinet Lighting

Adding under-cabinet lighting will brighten up your kitchen and it will bring many benefits to the heart of your home. This subtle lighting can really showcase your countertop, so choose wisely as it could become a focal point. Be more energy efficient and use the under-cabinet lighting to use as a night-light instead of having to have the overhead lights on. This simple lighting can also make it easier to read your recipe, so that you don’t mix up sugar with salt! Check out these 10 ‘shining’ examples from Bob Villa, you are sure to find a configuration that you like.

All White Kitchens

A white kitchen is truly timeless and will never go out of style. You have the ability to play with different accent colours, depending on your mood, the season or even holiday occasion. As well when it comes to the countertop or flooring you can’t go wrong with the colour that you choose, as essentially the white décor is a blank canvas.
