Home Help: 4 kitchen updates that stand the test of time

Whether you’re undergoing a full-scale kitchen renovation or a simple refresh, design decisions can oftentimes feel overwhelming. Here are 4 tips for making design decisions that last: Forever finishes. When it comes to finishes, keep things classic. The best options are always the ones that have been around for decades — if they’ve been popular since the 1920s, there’s a good chance they’ll remain a staple for years to come. Think white subway tile, marble countertops, brass pulls and classic painted cabinetry. Maximize counter and island space. Your countertops are used for much more than preparing food — homework, art projects, family gatherings, late night get togethers — it all happens in your kitchen. You want to maximize counter space, and make sure your island is hardworking. Store your small appliances, like toasters and blenders, in your cabinets to free up counter space for all the other things you need it for. Brighten your space. Lighting is crucial in the kitchen and most people underestimate how many they need. You want a mix of overhead lighting, pendant lights and counter-top lighting.
