For Taupe Kitchen Cabinets, It Doesn’t Get Better Than White Backsplash Ideas   While white shaker kitchen cabinets can serve to strike a tone of contrast with countless backsplash ideas, taupe cabinets offer an altogether different set of advantages.

In addition to providing an excellent transition piece between disparate color splashes in your kitchen, taupe also functions as a terrific foundation tone. New inspiration can spring forth in every direction from taupe, whether you strive for a traditional or ultramodern cook...

You need to know these before choosing your countertop It’s a trend that’s been developing for years and is currently in full bloom. It seems like nearly every new kitchen is equipped with beautiful granite countertops. And despite all of the look-alike alternatives, Granite remains king. It is a natural stone and it’s available in a wide range of patterns and colors, each slab unique unto itself. What’s not to love? It doesn’t matter if you don’t care for the shininess typically affiliated with granite, you may also get it with a subdued matte finish. And that’s just scratching the surface...

It’s the wood paneling that’s making a splash! In the construction of residences, barns, sheds and other structures, shiplap is often used as exterior siding. It’s a wooden board milled with a halved groove that results in a unique reveal line. And although it is most commonly associated with the outside of a home, it has been achieving great popularity on the inside, as decorative interior paneling. In fact, it’s been put to use in a variety of ways few would have suspected just years ago. Yet there it is, and it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere soon. It’s not something...

Never underestimate the power of accessories Sometimes it’s the most obvious things we don’t consider or give a second thought to. We may regret that it seems difficult to get creative with our bathrooms décor, assuming that interior design in a small space is a great challenge. You’ve already got nice paint and tiles, the restroom vanity looks great, where can you go from there? Simplicity, that’s where. Take a few steps back. You are already using accessories that are essential, simply engage that concept a little further and be artistic with it. The best part of it all is that...

How to bring an exciting new look to your once-bland kitchen There’s no arguing with the classics and having a kitchen painted in a neutral color is one of them. It just works, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be bland. In fact, neutral colors can provide the base for some of the most dynamic modern kitchen ideas (but this doesn't mean that bold kitchens with multiple colors won't do well). Simply make use of everything available to you like textures, fine finishes, and elements that can draw attention without the use of bright colors. Here’s a few ideas to...

Kitchen Remodeling Trends & More at Dwell on Design 2018 in Los Angeles Dwell on Design 2018 just ended, and we’ve had a chance to decompress to share our thoughts on all of the amazing new trends we saw.

We love to see all of the subtle or...
