As you read in our previous blog, one of the first steps to designing your Kitchen Remodel is selecting the style you would like for your fixtures and décor. Kitchens no longer just serve as a functional room; they have become the central gathering places for families and friends.
At Agape, our Interior Designers love opportunities to experiment with more modern styles than the traditional ones you see everywhere. Here we will cover some of the most common (and trendy) kitchen styles, including the elements each include.
It is very important to keep in mind the type of layout and workflow that fit best with each of these styles as you assess which is best for you and your family’s dream kitchen.
