Kitchen Interior Design Tips

Top 4 Interior Design Tips for Kitchens

Some say kitchens are the heart of the home; however, we say kitchens are the hub of the home.

Life happens in the kitchen, from rushed mornings where there is only time for coffee to lingering dinner parties where guest pore over charcuterie boards.

Senior Interior Designer Traci Cannon laughed when asked to give her top four design tips for kitchens as she does not cook. But do you need to be a chef to design a kitchen? In this case, no!

Here are her top four interior design tips for creating a timeless kitchen.

  • For a seamless, integrated look, install panel-ready appliances to keep the look and feel of your kitchen throughout. ⁠Now, your refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher look like your cabinets.

  • When hosting gatherings, guests tend to linger in the kitchen, so make it inviting by having a large one-level island with comfortable seating. ⁠

  • Create clutter-free countertops by hiding small appliances and cooking items in a butler kitchen or oversized walk-in pantry. Also, incorporate a morning bar in your kitchen to store breakfast essentials such as a toaster and coffeemaker.⁠

  • Continuing your countertop up through the backsplash offers a streamlined aesthetic look. Just be mindful of the materials used in your countertop and backsplash, as some are more porous than others. If you choose a more porous material, such as granite or marble, ensure you know the best way to care for your countertops.⁠

Here are some of our latest and greatest kitchens designed by our team of 20 senior interior designers.
