My Kitchen is Missing The Wow – Design Questions
The Design Dilemma – This beautiful new kitchen is very well done. The cabinets are great quality, and a classic profile. There just seems to be something missing. The touch that makes it feel like a comforting home, a nice welcoming kitchen, and not just a model home’s kitchen.
I would love to see the island painted a contrasting color. A dark grey or brown (depending on the furnishings in your house) such as Benjamin Moore’s Willow would be great. The back splash needs more of a wow factor, I used a simple marble mosaic here. For the hood fan you could paint it the same color as the island, or replace it with a stainless steel fan. Lastly, to add some visual texture and added glitz with an interesting light fixture. This one is from Restoration Hardware.
I would love to hear opinions on this. Do you have a room that needs some love? Send me your pictures!
