Wow Factor for the Heart of Your Home

The kitchen has become the most popular gathering place in the home. It’s where everyone comes together to enjoy a meal, share stories and hang out. Because it is the heart of the home, it deserve careful consideration as it has the potential to provide the most “wow” factor in your main space.

Get the Biggest Bang for Your Buck


There are so many ways to impress in the kitchen. In particular, cabinets are prime real estate for adding a zap of personality. Choosing distinctive cabinet lines combined with show-stopping architectural features like stacked cabinetry, glass fronts or even range base cabinets add a designer edge.

Plus, the options are endless when it comes to color palettes and combinations. Go for classic white, traditional tones or even mix the colors found in your island and surrounding cabinets.

We also offer a variety of cabinetry enhancements…think trim for additional impact, crown molding for a grand presentation, and under-cabinet lighting to illuminate the space.

Put on the Polish


The cabinetry doesn’t always have to be your biggest showpiece. Think of the lighting, faucet and drawer pulls as the final polish or shall we say “jewelry” for the space. Selecting pendent lights with personality can create a memory point.

You can even consider mixing it up and playing with finishes and textures. For example, two stand out hardware combinations include brushed golds with bronze and matte blacks with chrome. If that’s too bold for you, try staying in the silver family, and playing with brushed nickels and polished chrome.

Play with Pattern

Attract admirers with statement granite or quartz countertops. Granite is a natural product that is mined from the earth. Mother Earth puts her own personal stamp on each piece, which means the pattern can be unpredictable. It’s durable, and when used on countertops, creates a focal point of interest.

On the other hand, quartz is man-made. It’s a nonporous material that is super durable for any lifestyle. New patterns and marble-like looks make quartz another popular choice.
