These days the first decision that you will have to make when planning New Jersey kitchen remodeling is whether you want to go for the modern or country home look. These are two of the most popular kitchen designs today and are often described as being polar opposites. While both have their advantages and disadvantages, it really comes down to a matter of personal taste and the general overall décor of your home. Look through our portfolio, design magazines and the Internet and get a feel for each style to see which resonates more with you. If, however, you cannot decide between the two styles, mixing them is significantly less challenging than imagined. And, has gained popularity in recent years. If this sounds like something you want to try, here are a few guidelines.
- Contrast appliances and furniture. For example, combining modern, stainless steel appliances with more traditional country kitchen cabinets of New Jersey can be an effective way to bring together the two design styles.
- Combine country and modern lighting techniques. Modern track lighting can be wonderfully combined with country-style lamps.
- Choose colors wisely. Design your kitchen so that the wall colors are neutral (modern) and are accented with bold reds and golds (country).
- Combine modern and country fixtures and sinks. Farmhouse sinks are hallmarks of country style design and can work well with modern countertops and stainless steel appliances.
By following these tips, you can have the best of both worlds.
