Your new Kitchen can be Unique
Because not every kitchen works the way you need it to, Van Metre Design+Build will help you create one that stands out from any other. A successful design should allow all activity to flow seamlessly without compromise. If thoughtfully designed, the prep and cooking functions should be made easy and sensible without any challenges. For gatherings and entertaining, your kitchen should be welcoming, beautifully appointed, and comfortable for all your guests. Whether you are an amateur cook or professional chef, your new layout should be smart and provide easy access to key appliances and stored items you use most frequently.
When considering the style of your new finishes, there are countless options to consider. Your preferred style could be quite different from current trends or may follow today’s most popular kitchen design themes. With our Northern Virginia clients, most often we encounter the following styles:
- Traditional – These design intensive kitchens are usually defined by more intricate details, which can include arches, decorative moldings and corbels, raised-panel cabinets, a mix of antique finishes and furniture-elements — even a more formal chandelier could highlight the new space.
- Contemporary – Sometimes referred to as ‘less is more’ designed spaces, these kitchens typically incorporate pure, sleek forms in order to provide a streamlined visual composition. Often materials and finishes utilized are bold, contrasting yet playful in form, creating a one of a kind look.
- Transitional – Here you’ll find certain elements from both traditional and contemporary styles, carefully combined to create an aesthetic quality ideal for the end user and their home.
