100+ Inspiring Kitchen Design Ideas

Hardworking Kitchen Island

An abundance of moody gray cabinetry, limestone countertops, and stainless steel appliances add luxe elements to the rough-hewn kitchen of country superstar Ronnie Dunn’s Tennessee barn home. To maximize storage, one half of the kitchen island contains a series of baskets and bins; the other half has an additional work surface mounted with coasters to roll away when not in use.

Nostalgic Accents

Singer-songwriter Holly Williams outfitted the kitchen in her 1908 Nashville cottage with classic white subway tiles, polished marble, and copper accents reminiscent of French bistros. A pine ceiling gives the kitchen a country vibe, while its inky black paint job ups the space’s cool factor. Soda shop stools from the 1940s, found at an antiques mall, create a nostalgic spot to gather.

Farmhouse Style

1 56 Collection by Adele-C. presented by CDI Furniture

Propped up on four miniature steel Thonet chairs, Ron Gilad ’s day bed and storage unit for Italy s Adele-C are delightfully whimsical furnishings. The walnut cupboard contains a contrasting lacquered blue interior while the upholstered bed comes in fabric or leather in a variety of shades.

This bulbous tub, made of finely ground volcanic limestone, is more energy- and water-efficient than its cast-iron or acrylic counterparts. The material acts like a thermos, maintaining the water s heat.

3 Meccanica by Demode/Valcucine. presented by Dom Interiors

This pared-down freestanding kitchen by Demode and engineered by Valcucine is made of recycled materials and is itself completely recyclable, making it exceptionally eco-friendly.

This modular outdoor collection, customized to suit any backyard or terrace, is now available in white. Also keep an eye out for the outdoor furniture company s new Cruise collection, which includes a lounge chair, a club chair and a loveseat, finished in a smokey Solartex weave, reminiscent of a tiger print mix in multiple greys, black and white.

5 Wine Refrigerator by GE Monogram

Storing over 100 bottles on seven stainless steel and beechwood racks, this fridge is equipped with independent controls in each compartment to optimize the serving temperature of individual wines. It also boasts an electronic icemaker and removable bin and is HFC-free, minimizing its carbon footprint and energy consumption.

Each piece is unique in this collection of hand-blown tiles that each measure two by 12 inches. Almost 50 stocked colours are available, and customized shades and sizes can be specified.

7 Axor Bouroullec by Axor/Hansgrohe. presented by Masco Canada

This space-saving faucet integrated into a floating shelf is part of an expansive line of modular fittings and fixtures that French brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec designed for Axor, Hansgrohe s designer arm. Masco will also unveil Brizo’s Odin, a Scandinavian-inspired suite, and Hansgrohe’s ComfortZone Metris, a range of customizable wash basin mixers.

This Brazilian line of glazed porcelain tiles has expanded to include two new shades: Ibirapuera Mix and Ibirapuera Patina. Its rustic-looking eight-by-48-inch format measures up to traditional hardwood planks.

The Interior Design Show runs from January 24 to 27 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 255 Front St.

This is the stage of the creation of the interior design. Even before making architectural plans with precise dimensions it is advisable to meet with one of our specialists in interior design, who is more affordable than an architect, and who will meet you to team up with you.

The budget: The interior designer must often be original and have a creative mindset to find ways to create a pleasant but affordable atmosphere. The materials are sometimes expensive or the interior design requires to give shape to materials that involve high costs and complications in practice.

Quality: Quality here means to care for a job well done by a close monitoring of the materials that are installed. A nice interior design is based on a contractor and workers who care about the details.


Little is said about the relational function of the interior designer. It is important that the interior designer is a very good communicator. His talent for interior design is of course important, but as he is the person who speaks on your behalf and is constantly in touch with all the professionals such as contractors, architects, manufacturers, suppliers. that person becomes an ambassador for your project. The interior design expresses itself through this communicator with design talent who knows how to transmit and have his ideas accepted in addition to being able to balance your budget and the contingencies of the construction site. Somehow the designer is like a creative negotiator of ideas, the budget and the quality.

#interior design ideas for small homes


Interior design ideas for small homes

The advancement of modern life is surely pleasing or else it wouldn t have happened. However, advancement in home designing usually takes place in small homes in order to match the increasing population and the economical situation. Small home owners, just like all home owners, should have the ability to chill out inside their home without feeling imprisoned inside. The best way to reach this goal is to make use of practical interior design ideas for small homes.

Interior design ideas for small homes consist of several factors including the design of the walls and the flooring; colors of each wall; and the furniture placed in different rooms of the small home. You can begin with wall design ideas like installing big windows where it would be applicable. The window option is probably not acceptable in rented homes. Hence, you can place a wall mural with natural scenery on one wall of the living room or the bedroom to imitate window scenery and so help broaden the interior design of small homes.

In order to make each room of a small home a unique sanctuary, you can use different interior design ideas, including different paint colors. You may also unify the interior design of the rooms if you like a particular style and like to stick to it. Whatever direction you want to take the interior design ideas for small homes, it is best to use light colors through the wall paint and the furniture pieces since dark colors tend to narrow up a space in a visual manner.

Furnishing and accessorizing take major parts in the interior design for small homes. Furniture ideas for small kitchens include making a modular kitchen with nifty solutions for organization. You can change the interior design of a small bathroom by placing a corner bathtub to make use of corner space efficiently. The furniture ideas for small homes generally must stay away from bulky pieces even if they were catchy. The best furniture ideas in case of small interior designing include convertible pieces such as futons, and fixing a cupboard inside a wall.

Accessories in small home interior designs should be as simple as possible but yet attractive. Small flower vases are very simple and cute. Placing mirrors on different room walls can also serve both aesthetically and practically by virtually increasing the home s size. Last but not least, it is vital to consider lighting ideas for interior design for small homes. You may have a look at the following photos for further inspiration.
