Find Your Kitchen’s Focal Point

Considering a remodel? Using a good Designer will help you achieve a kitchen of your dreams. One key detail many homeowners do not consider is your kitchen’s focal point. This area could be behind the cook top, the island, a wall or even an appliance. This is the area of the kitchen where your eye goes first when walking into the space. This area should not be ignored it should be showcased. Your Designer will create something wonderful for the focal point that will make your kitchen remodel pop! Creating a focal point with backsplash behind the cook top with tile adds an exciting layer to the design on your kitchen. Making this area its own with different tiles than the rest of your kitchen creates a focal point.

An unexpected focal point is shown in the below picture. A unique farm sink steals the show in this kitchen. A designer can find beautiful pieces to incorporate into your new kitchen that will have your friends asking “where did you get that?”

One of the best ways to create a focal piece in your kitchen without changing the footprint, paint your island a different color than the rest of your kitchen. This will highlight the island and make it stand out.

Better yet, paint your island and mix the countertop materials. Making the island counter marble and the rest quartz makes the island the center stage.
