FarmhouseFarmhouse kitchens are incredibly popular. Think about how a warm and homey kitchen can meet functional and practical design ideas, like an eat-in area. They use open shelving, apron front sinks (otherwise known as farmhouse sinks) and classic flooring, and they will sometimes feature a big kitchen table. Great for big families or families who entertain quite often, this is a classic kitchen design style. If this is what you have in mind for your kitchen renovation, we can definitely help!
ModernModern kitchens are sleek and minimalist. The hardware on the cabinetry is generally sleek and simple, and these types of kitchens do not usually have a ton of decorations and knickknacks laying around. This type of kitchen renovation is great for those who prefer a kitchen that is beautiful but uncomplicated.
TraditionalTraditional kitchens are usually the most popular type of kitchen renovation we do. This is probably what you picture when you think of a kitchen. It is warm, welcoming and is a classic style for anyone’s kitchen renovation project.
ContemporaryNot to be confused with modern, although they are quite similar. Contemporary kitchens are as sleek as a modern kitchen, but these kitchens incorporate some more playful elements. They are usually pretty unique and a great reflection of the homeowner’s personality. This type of kitchen renovation is great for families of all sizes!

TransitionalIf you love traditional kitchens and contemporary kitchens, you should consider the transitional kitchen design style for your kitchen renovation. They incorporate the warmth of a traditional kitchen with the simple and clean lines of a contemporary kitchen.
ParisianIf your tastes go more European than American, you can get the look and feel of a Parisian bistro with this type of kitchen renovation. Go for warm kitchen lighting, get tile floors put in, hang up some pretty cookware, use colors like blue and yellow for your walls and accents. We'll also help you make a well-informed choice for the best kitchen counter-top material to use.
Fun Ideas for Adding Color When Planning your Remodel* Add color when finishing your kitchen cabinets.
- Often we use a mix of enamel and stain. For example: try two complimenting enamels like grey and green where perhaps an island is a different color or uppers are different.
- Sometimes we will accent one specific area like a buffet or bar area within the cabinets.
- Sometimes we will use a light enamel, like white, with all the perimeter cabinets than bring focus to the island with a deep rich stain. We'll also consider what blends well with your kitchen appliances.
