Update Your Kitchen With On-Trend Custom Work
Originally, a larder was a cold room used for storing perishable food. The modern larder is a standalone pantry where you can organize dry goods, condiments, preserves, and other frequently used items. You can build a standing cabinet to match your existing cabinetry, or shop auctions and antique stores to find the perfect restoration project.
The painted ceiling trend has been around for a while, but it’s taking off in kitchens in a big way. For a soothing wash of colour, look for a light or haint blue. For a modern contrast to an all-white kitchen, try charcoal grey. For a warm glow, consider Benjamin Moore’s Colour of the Year, First Light.
No-hardware cabinets are on the rise for 2020. If you’re looking to have custom cabinets made for your kitchen, consider going with touch closures or cutout handles. The clean, modern line of your cabinets brings your kitchen into the future.
One of the biggest trends we’re seeing is vintage plate racks. You can mount your plate racks on the wall for additional space, and make a fun and interesting way to display your dinnerware. Castello Custom can build custom plate racks to match your existing cabinetry; contact us and we’ll be happy to make you a quote.
Don’t worry–you can keep your painted cabinets if you love them! But consider accenting your kitchen with a large natural wood item, such as a dining table or work island. If you have the item custom made, ask your craftsperson to bevel the edges of a leftover square piece, then use it as a matching cutting board.
Make an impact with large tile pieces for your backsplash. Your contractor can cut pieces of quartz or marble for oversized tiles, giving you a dramatic yet minimalist look. Plus, the custom tilework gives your kitchen a unique personality.
Mix your finishes for an updated, trendy look. Think nickel for cabinet hardware, brass for your faucet, and vintage silver salt cellar. The intentionally mixed look gives a quirky, individual spin on your kitchenware.
Black and white styling will always be timeless, but for a modern spin on contrast, consider using Sherwin-Williams’ Colour of the Year, Naval, to paint your cabinets. The deep, rich colour makes a dramatic impact in your kitchen.
