There are so many ways to give your kitchen the makeover you’ve always dreamed of. Whether it be inspiring marble detail for a modern and functional design or all wooden materials for a farmhouse theme, Abbey Design Center will assure that the finished product of your kitchen renovation will leave you breathless.

Things to keep in mind for your next kitchen renovation:


The kitchen is the heart and soul of the house which means it must offer function, utility, and versatility more so than other rooms. There are a lot of factors to consider for your kitchen renovation to increase the utility and function of the room. Technology spaces like TVs and computer areas are popular installations in modern kitchen themes. The green movement has also urged many people to install a recycling space in addition to the trash receptacle. Additionally, enough seating to accommodate a large number of people comfortably is a must.

Lighting and Style

The lights and style of any room set the mood, especially in the kitchen. Do you want a rustic feel? How about modern? Lighting placement plays a huge role in how your kitchen feels. Adding subtle light fixtures under hanging cabinets can give your kitchen a warm feel. Overhead lighting is another sure way to make your kitchen bright, vibrant, and welcoming.

Select A Focal Point

Avoid confusing, busy patterns in your kitchen space by selecting just one or two focal points. Invest in items, materials, and trends that will make the strongest impact. A backsplash, accent countertops, furniture, textured walls, and other fixtures can all act as the foundation of your focal point. By setting aside one or two designated focal points, you are giving your kitchen some fashionable trends without overdoing it.
