“Archway recently finished up the remodeling on my kitchen and it was a wonderful experience. I will definitely be recommending Archway to friends and family!”
"It was such a pleasure working with Archway to remodel my kitchen. I had a small area to work with and the designer I worked with really helped utilize the space. My main concern was having a prep area for cooking and I didn’t believe that an island would fit, but we found a small enough island that can double as my kitchen table. It turned out better than I could imagine!! This company is efficient and knowledgeable to a tee!"
"I fall in love with my kitchen all over again when I come home each day. Archway’s customer service was impeccable and we were very happy with the entire process."
Many functional and comfortable kitchens have a layered lighting approach. A series of recessed fixtures provide ambient light, while chandeliers and pendants are popular products for task lighting over an island or seating area. Accent lighting above and below cabinets highlight special areas of the kitchen.
While stark white kitchens remain popular with many homeowners, neutral, soothing tones like grey, tan, and off-white are also emerging as color trends. Today’s kitchen designs must consider lifestyles, as the kitchen tends to flow into other rooms of the home and serves as a gathering place for everyone. A neutral color palette can be easier for homeowners to agree upon.
Glass Front Kitchen Cabinets and Open Shelving
Glass cabinet inserts represent an ideal compromise between solid cabinetry and open shelving. They visually help open up a kitchen and showcase dishware and decorative items.
Kitchen Cabinet Trends
Cabinet style drives the look of the rest of the kitchen design, and whether your style is ultra-contemporary or more quietly traditional, there is a cabinet style, color, and finish to suit your budget and taste. Some current trends in modern cabinet design include clean lines, lacquered whites and greys, and for a more traditional look – furniture-style cabinets.
There are so many creative options for backsplash tile today that can complement your overall kitchen design. Subway, glass, textured, marble, and stone are just a few of the popular styles to choose from. Or consider a unique pattern like herringbone or chevron for a truly customized look.
A contemporary kitchen is clean and uncluttered, and incorporates modern elements along with a seamless design to create a sleek and beautiful space for your kitchen.
Transitional kitchens blend the old with the new and break away from traditional design rules. Think classic elements mixed with modern convenience for a timeless look.
A traditional kitchen is warm and classic and incorporates soft, neutral colors. Traditional designs are open to interpretation, but they usually have more detail and ornamentation than modern designs.
