Pet Stations for your Furry Children
“I love the idea of incorporating pet stations in or around the kitchen. It allows everyone, including our fur babies, to enjoy meals together but also have a beautiful kitchen. Consider a food station with a pullout drawer to house the food and water bowls and can disappear when not in use. A potato bin section of the island can store multiple pounds of dog food easily and is accessible for refilling.”—Jillian Johnson, Decorating Den Interiors

Live on Island Time
“The increasingly popular island makes a great feature for any kitchen due to its design flexibility that encourages an open space. Choose from granite, quartz, marble, porcelain or quartzite to top it off. Granite is the most popular choice because you won’t have to worry about burns or scratches, and it also can be used outdoors.”—Melissa Turpin, Unique Tile

Update your Appliances with Color
“Planning to renovate the heart of your home? When redoing your kitchen, don’t forget to factor-in appliance colors. For 2018, there are great new colors to choose from. Consider Miele’s new truffle brown, Whirlpool’s sunset bronze, and KitchenAid’s black stainless. These options add a cozy ambiance and subtle sophistication, while retaining the easy-maintenance and clean-look of stainless steel.”—Metro Appliances & More
