New Renovation Trends and Ideas to Add into Your Kitchen

The kitchen is known as the heart of the home. Families and friends spend lots of time eating, talking, laughing, cooking, playing games, and more! Since you spend a lot of time in this room, it makes sense that you want this room looking its best. From the cabinets to the oven, your kitchen should reflect your personal tastes and needs.

At Luxury Home Solutions, we design and renovate kitchens. From minor updates to complicated renovations, we do it all. Our team can help you design a kitchen that is beautiful and functional – this new kitchen will become an added investment to your home. In fact, kitchens are the most popular room for homeowners to renovate.

If you’re looking for new ideas for your kitchen, we can help you out! New ideas and trends are popping up all the time for kitchens, so we wanted to share with you some of the latest and newest ideas.

Colored cabinets – Colored cabinets, as opposed to neutral colors, are popular now. Blue, green, and black cabinets are hot right now.  If you’re afraid of too much color, you can choose to have your cabinets neutral (white/beige/gray) and make your island a different, bold color.

Marbled Quartz – Quartz is showing up more in people’s kitchens. These days, there’s a lot of patterns with quartz because of its increased popularity.

Open shelves – You don’t just need to have cabinets in the kitchen. You can mix it up with open shelves. Open shelving helps your kitchen look spacious and taller. These types of shelves have a minimalist look to them. These shelves are great for contemporary or farmhouse-style kitchens. Natural wood open shelves are a popular look right now.

Shaker cabinets – Shaker cabinets have flat-center door panels with a square frame. This is the most popular cabinet style because they can look both traditional and modern. They have clean lines.

Hidden tech – More people are designing ways to plug in their mobile devices into their kitchens. Hidden power outlets and USB ports in drawers are a great way to charge and store your devices without the unsightly cords hogging up space on your counters

Gray – Gray is in right now – it’s a color that’s been popular for a couple of years now. Gray is the new neutral. Gray is the number one wall color. Gray is also popular for accent walls and kitchen islands.

White – All white everything is popular and it’s a trend that’s been in style for many years. When going all white, it’s a good idea to choose a different color for the backsplash or accent in the room so there is more contrast.

Designing the Right Bathroom Vanity for You

A bathroom is a place to freshen up; it’s a place to relax; it’s a place to escape just a little bit; it’s a place to get ready for the day or night ahead. You probably spend a lot more time in the bathroom than you realize. The average person spends around two years of their life in the bathroom! Since you spend a lot of time in your bathroom, you should make this room as comfortable and inviting as possible. From the counter tops to the floor, the bathroom should be your own personal oasis and spa.

At Luxury Home Solutions (LHS), we offer an array of designs and layouts for a bathroom remodeling; we can maximize space, maintain flow, and help you create an environment that reflects your style, wants, and needs.

For this article, we wanted to focus on one aspect of the bathroom: the vanity. The vanity is one of the main focal points in the bathroom. The vanity is where you get ready and freshen up, so it’s an important part of the bathroom. Whether you’re applying makeup, shaving, putting on facial creams, or doing your hair, you have your daily and night.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of some different vanity ideas you may want to consider in your luxurious bathroom renovations.

  • Washstand: This is a traditional, elegant look. There is no drawers or cabinets (no storage space) but it makes a small bathroom look bigger.
  • Single: A single vanity can be enough for your bathroom. A cabinet underneath can hold a lot of your belongings and keep the room clutter free.
  • Freestanding: A freestanding vanity looks like a piece of furniture in the room than an actual sink. It comes with storage space. These are usually ornate pieces and can add character to the room.
  • Perch on a plinth: If you have enough storage, putting your sinks on a wall-hung plinth is aesthetically pleasing. The room is more open, and it brings a creative design element to the room. You can store towels underneath.
  • Lots of storage: Big storage vanities are a good idea if you have a big family and lots of belongings. Big vanities have deep drawers beneath and are very wide.
  • Small: Small vanities are great for guest bathrooms. Pick a vanity that is ornate or has a special style, so it is the focal point of the room.
  • Wall mounted: This is a “floating” vanity, which is great for a tiny bathroom. It makes a room look like it has more space
  • Custom: Create a custom vanity that fits your needs, tastes, and size of the room.

There are endless ways to design the vanity in your bathroom. From a small Victorian-style stand to a big wide counter for all your makeup needs, the possibilities are endless.

There are so many ways you can bring your bathroom to the next level. At LHS, our designers and team know how to create a custom luxurious bathroom and vanity space.

Add A Custom In-Law Suite to Your Home

Thinking about adding an in-law suite to your home? You’re not alone. More and more people are building these into their homes or adding them as an addition. Whether you have a lot of guests or live in family members, this is a great space addition for your home. You can make it look like the rest of your home or you can make it have a completely different look.

Where should the in-law suite be in your home?

  • You could put it in the basement, if you have one or are able to have a basement. Basements give you a lot of space to work with. Basements are also very private.
  • You could put it on top of the garage. This is a spacious area for a studio/suite. They even have their own private entrance.  This is good for independent living space.
  • You could covert your garage, which is a big space. It’s all on a low level, so whoever lives there doesn’t have to climb stairs. The people staying in this space will be connected to you but still have their own privacy.
  • You could convert a part of your home. You could take some spare bedrooms or office and turn it into an in-law suite.
  • You could build an addition, if you have the space and budget. With an addition, the possibilities are endless.

Things to think about and/or include in an in-law suite:

  • Giving the suite a private bath
  • Giving the suite a living/sitting area separate from the bedroom
  • Giving the suite hookups for internet and cable
  • Giving the suite a full kitchen or kitchenette

There are a lot of ways to design an in-law suite into your home. Our design professionals at Luxury Home Solutions (LHS) will work with your space and budget to create a space that reflects the needs of those who will be staying in the space.

Beautiful Baseboards for Your Home

Cabinets. Wallpaper. Tile. Flooring. Countertops. Doorknobs. Molding. All these parts add to the design of your home. Whether its their color, texture, or material, these items can reflect your style and taste. When you’re designing and building a custom home or renovating a room, you must think about the design from ceiling to floor. One element or part that you may overlook is the baseboards. Believe it or not, baseboards don’t have to be boring. They can add a lot of character and charm to your room.

At Luxury Home Solutions (LHS), our team of designers will work with you to design baseboards that reflect the space of the room, as well as the vibe/theme of the room. Below, we’ve put together some different baseboard ideas you may want to consider adding into your new home or room. Whether subtle or loud, a baseboard can add a lot to a room!

Flat baseboards – Flat baseboards look modern and are simple. If you want timeless and elegant, this is a good choice. This type of baseboards are good for taller baseboards that are at least 6 inches. Flat baseboards work great with patterned wallpaper

Rectangular baseboards – This baseboard is basically a flat baseboard with no rounded edges, and it is not completely flat. They are modern looking and great for contemporary rooms and homes. They also look great with textures.

Built-up baseboards –  Built-up baseboards are taller baseboards (12 inches and higher) that have a base strip and a top strip and have a section of wall in between that is painted to look like part of the baseboard.

Metal baseboards– A stainless steel (or other metal) baseboard can brighten up a room and add a lot or character.

Painted-out baseboards– Paint your wall and baseboard the same color, which can either bring attention to a bold wall color or attention to your furnishings.

The color or style of a baseboard can completely transform the look of a room. At LHS, our designers can help you decide on the type of baseboards you should install in each room to reflect your style for the room.
