10 Kitchen Design Ideas From Popular Kitchens - Proline Range Hoods

When it comes to kitchen design, there are many new and innovative ideas that are getting people talking. Here we will share 10 kitchen design ideas from popular kitchens to give you inspiration for your own kitchen projects.

1. Work With Mixed Materials

Working with mixed materials is a great way to add interest to your kitchen space. The key is to create balance with mixed materials throughout the kitchen. You can create balance by making sure that different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.

Whether you love the look of exposed brick and wooden beams to create a more modern, industrial vibe, or prefer contemporary environments, the rugged feel of mixed elements can be balanced with soft accents to create your dream kitchen design.

2. Create Strong Contrast

In kitchen design creating strong contrast is very important. Designing with contrast in mind creates visual interest and incites excitement and drama.

You can create contrast in your kitchen design by arranging opposite elements. For example, light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc. Complementary colors also work great, such as blue and orange, red and green, and yellow and violet.

3. Build Nifty Storage Nooks

Choosing custom appliances that look beautiful, align with the hottest design trends, and come equipped with the latest technology features might be well worth your investment.

Flooring in kitchen design serves as a base foundation for your space and can ultimately impact its overall appeal. So make sure you choose designs and materials that you truly love.

The centerpiece of the kitchen is the range hood. Its most important design complement is the kitchen backsplash. Pair your range hood with a beautiful custom backsplash material that will show it at its best.

Make sure that your custom backsplash sticks to one color palette to go along with your kitchen countertops. This will give each element a nice cohesiveness, so they don't clash with each other.

10. Make the Ceiling Stand Out
