Designed By Hand?!

Kitchens are one of my favorite areas of the home! Mainly because I love to cook but also because a nice kitchen is bliss! Like this one featured below, it is gorgeous!! The lantern style hanging lights, the granite counter tops, the detailed white cabinets and the beams in the ceiling(you can see them in the upper right hand corner). I’m a huge fan of homes that flaunt their beams! πŸ™‚ It adds character and shows craftsmanship… But on to the good stuff! What really draws my attention in this room is the custom range hood and back splash. These are truly the center pieces of this kitchen!! Handcrafted and stunning, they bring dexterity and exceptional taste together, that can only be created by someone who is truly passionate about their work and your home. I am a huge fan of his work and actually lucky enough to have met the incredibly talented designer, Ara Mironyuk(www.artbyara.com), who created these pieces(and many, many more!) and they are spectacular!

Black Sparkles!

20120504-090009.jpg

Isn’t this kitchen amazing?! I cannot begin to tell you how much I love and appreciate the arched entry, wood work, beams and everything else about this kitchen! Beautiful! What really caught my eye about this kitchen and I want you to see, is the black sparkle back splash. (I love me some sparkle!!) What is great about it is that sparkle is subtle but the dark ‘large box area’ tells your eyes where to focus. Even better, it may help you disguise your dirty black pans you don’t want to clean after dinner ( like me, lol!) or, maybe you cook with colorful Le Creuset pots and pans! Even better because the colors will pop and make everyone curious of what’s in them! πŸ™‚

Whether you’re searching for a subtle and classic back splash or a new way to camouflage your dinner dishes you’re putting off, consider a dark sparkle back splash. πŸ™‚

Todays Topic: Kitchen Tile Back Splashes!

Good Morning Everyone!

Happy Saturday! πŸ™‚ I love weekends! Especially when I wake up and there is sun shining. It’s motivational and makes me want to get the day goin’! Regardless of what I have to do on any given day, my day usually starts in the kitchen. Making coffee, breakfast, lunch, ect. Beyond that, a kitchen can be a focal point of your home – so why not make it beautiful and inviting?!

Tile back splashes are great way to add a decorative, eye catching, “Pop!”, to your kitchen! I absolutely love tile. There are so many shapes, sizes and designs to choose from to make a fun and rewarding change to your kitchen! Even though this is a simple change, it may be an attention hog, so search around and find what you like. After all, your new tile back splash will change the mood of your kitchen. (For the better of course!) You may acquire some more house guests, too! πŸ™‚

The internet is a great tool to research colors, designs and sizes that will go well with your kitchen. I also like visiting the Home Depot or other home stores and warehouses to see things in real life, before making any decisions or purchases. (I always say that if you have the opportunity to see it before your buy it – do it!) There are also the DIY (Do It Yourself), sites and guides online – opt for a reputable source such as Home Depot or DIY Network, or if you know of any?? Be sure to do your research if you are going to do this yourself. The right process is key. Either way, if you do this yourself, or hire help, don’t hesitate to obtain quotes. Remember, the cost of tiles can vary, which gives you options and wiggle room. Another thing to consider, is that this tiled area does not need to be the back splash for your whole kitchen. Maybe you just want to add a tile back splash behind your stove? There are different options and ways to add this decor into your kitchen. You don’t have to brake the bank to implement this change. You get to choose!

Another point to consider is that doing this remodel right, can add value! (Uh, heck yes!) My goodness! So many options! What are you visualizing? What is going to look best in your kitchen? I want to know!! So let me hear about it πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading ladies and gents! Talk to you soon! πŸ™‚

White, Black and Wood

20120404-085820.jpg

I love this kitchen!! I want to set foot in there and cook up a storm! It’s cozy and modern. I really love the white walls and cabinets! Especially the white brick behind the stove!! I love it when kitchens have some sort of textured or decorative back splashes such as tile, brick, ect. Another great thing about this kitchen is its black counter tops and wood butcher block island. I love it all!!! What do think?
