Kitchens are yearning for a sip of excitement and edge which is why interesting and colorful splashbacks will be popular in 2014. Grand Designs magazine has placed this as the number 1 Kitchen trend for 2014 and we at Freshome believe it’ll be a winner too. Look for tiles with interesting patterns, in colors (blue), colorful splashes of the rainbow or exotic designs. Keep the rest of the kitchen minimalistic.

Remove the doors: For many kitchens, especially in older homes, a swinging door to a pantry can be the culprit of unusable space. Especially doors that are inward swinging, getting behind the door with full hands may be a hassle and storage becomes cumbersome. Consider removing the doors, or if pocket doors or accordion doors are an option, install these. If you are a person who keeps a tidy pantry, a well organized pantry, can be beautiful décor in a kitchen!

If you’re looking to open up your kitchen and share the view with an adjacent dining room or living room – consider knocking down some partitions! This method works well for non load-bearing walls that don’t carry any structural value. Your kitchen can grow in size or it can just get opened up to other areas of your home.

Dishwasher: Similarly to your refrigerator, your family’s lifestyle will largely dictate what type of dishwasher will be ideal for your home. Lower end models tend to have simplified controls, while more elaborate ones will have energy efficiency qualities, hidden controls, and noise reduction qualities – especially helpful in small homes or open floor plans. Dishwasher drawers are also available for smaller amounts of dishware and can save water usage when you don’t have large loads to clean.

While kitchen lighting can sometimes be an afterthought, it is essential for safety, ambiance, and versatility of your kitchen. If your kitchen solely contains one overhead ambient lighting fixture, look into recessed lighting for a modern illumination source.

Consider adding more insulation if you live in a home that heat or cools quickly depending on the temperature outside. This could be a sign that you need additional insulation. When buying a furnace, ensure you buy the correct unit for your home. The square footage, orientation to the sun, and quantity of windows and doors can be evaluated by a professional home energy analyst. The right energy efficient furnace can bring your home years of lower energy bills and saving of the Earth’s resources.
