Narrowing Down Your Style

Kitchen design vancouver

by Stephanie Kantonen

Want to renovate but have no idea what you want? Do you see pictures you like in magazines but don’t feel ready to commit? You’re not alone!

So often these days, our customers are having a difficult time narrowing down their design style. Many people come into our showroom like a deer in the headlights, just trying to decipher between a contemporary slab door and a traditional raised panel door. Should I go white or wood? Light or dark? They’re all beautiful… so which one is “me”?

With so many styles to choose from, it can be challenging to decide which style – or combination of styles – best suits your personality and lifestyle. Customers often think they know what they are looking for, but can’t seem to commit to it once they see it in front of them. What they once thought would be their perfect kitchen, is now leaving them with lukewarm feelings of discontent.

If you fall into this category of confused and wide-eyed homeowners, fear not. Luckily for you, there are so many design tools at your disposal that can help you narrow down your design style. Websites like Houzz are interior design specific search engines that allow you to search specific colours, accents, or styles in any room of your house. This allows you to pick and choose which styles you are most drawn to and can help you commit to a decision.

Our extensive showroom is also a great tool for you to visually experiment. With countless door samples showing different profiles, colours, and applications, we’re sure to have something that will make you tick. Our in house designers also bring with them a vast level of experience and knowledge in creativity and problem solving. We are trained to read between the lines of what you think you want and what you actually want. At the end of the day, our ultimate goal is to provide you with a space that you are proud to show off – a space that highlights your unique style, and we’re here to help you find it!
