Wine Logic’s horizontal design preserves wine in the best possible conditions. Corks remain moist and swelled which keeps wine
away from unwanted contact with the air. The shade of cabinet storage also keeps light from effecting your wine. Simply pull out
one of the full-extension, ball-bearing shelves and choose the wine you want.
Style Basics: Transitional, Traditional and Contemporary
Transitional: Transitional styles are currently the most popular when it comes to kitchen design, according to the NKBA Trend Watch report. No surprise, given Transitional styling takes the best of traditional and contemporary styles, blends them up, and gives a clean, timeless appearance that’s neither too feminine nor too masculine. Transitional style tends to focus more on comfort than form, making for a warm, welcoming space. When designing a Transitional kitchen, a simple flat panel door, with or without edge moulding is the way to go. Our simple Shaker, more detailed Transitional (ahem), or wide rail Cascade styles are a perfect choice.
Traditional: Think raised panel cabinet doors, think ornate carvings, think tailored window treatments and large print wall paper. Imagine a tufted divan in plush fabric. That’s traditional design. Again, according to the NKBA, Traditional style has fallen out of favour, with most people choosing to go with the cleaner transitional features. Our Killarney door in maple is a great choice to compliment your Traditional styles.
Contemporary: The most obvious element of contemporary design is line. Lines should be clean and angular – fewer curves, less fuss. Unadorned windows, bare floors and neutral colours punctuate the contemporary home. In contemporary design, less is more. Our slab doors, especially the Urban High Gloss, pair well with your contemporary kitchen plans.
So You Want to Renovate Your Kitchen?
A few things to consider before you start shopping.
1. Motivation: Are you renovating to achieve your dream home? Are you renovating to sell? Are you renovating because of a fire/flood? What’s your motivation and what is the goal you’re wanting to capture? Knowing the answer to those questions will help your designer immensely when they begin working with you.
2. Scope of project: People don’t buy cabinets, they buy kitchens. That often includes new flooring, new windows and/or doors, new sink, faucet, countertop, backsplash tile, appliances. Sometimes the kitchen is attached to a larger renovation, like removing a wall. Keep all that in mind before you start shopping and help your designer use your investment dollars wisely.
3. Know what you want to spend: I often refer to kitchens as an investment, and it’s true. Kitchen and bathroom renovations typically return 75-100% of investment upon home sale. However, none of us have unlimited funds to spend, so know what’s comfortable for you to spend, and please share it with your designer up front. If you don’t know where to start, think of what you would be willing to spend were you car shopping. That’s a good benchmark.
4. Think of your priorities: Would you be willing to forego a few extra storage cabinets in order to afford a quartz countertop? Would you be willing to sacrifice the quartz to afford a commercial range? Your designer will, of course, do their best to get you everything you want for what you can afford, but realistically that isn’t always possible. Let them know what you NEED, what you WANT, and what would be a BONUS to include in their designs for you. You’ll be happier and your designer will be more efficient.
5. Keep a contingency fund: If you plan to spend $45,000, try to keep your purchases and labour to $40,000, and have a $5,000 contingency fund. You never know what your installer might find once he or she starts opening up your walls!
6. Have a plan: Are you staying in your home while the renovation is happening? If so, make sure you have somewhere to cook, somewhere to wash dishes, and somewhere to eat while your renovation is in progress. Better yet, take your family on vacation while the work is being done. Your installer will thank you, and your experience will be much less stressful.
Renovating any room in your home can be stressful, but if you prepare well, it can run smoothly.
