Goodbye summer, Hello fall. Well technically not yet but the cool air is slowly setting in. In the world of construction this means that we are still open for business and taking in clients. Even though the entertainment season is coming to an end, there is still time between now and Christmas. This will give you a chance to work on renovation projects prior to the holiday season.  Kitchens have become a space that are not only functional for making meals but a place where the family gathers, and where you host, but also have morphed into a creative space for designers and homeowners.

From Brass finishes to waterfall islands, black hardware and intricate millwork,  kitchen brands all over the world continue to innovate. There has been no shortage of design ideas and they are not showing any signs of slowing down.  We have gathered up our favourite 10 dreamy kitchens that have inspired us and hopefully make you rethink renovation this fall.


Brass hardware is still going strong. It Is as popular as it was a decade ago. In the present kitchen we are seeing the evolution of its use. Brass hardware is durable, consistent and durable. It is easy to clean and is a great accent to most cabinetry. There is something classic and warm about brass that transforms traditional and transitional spaces.


Range Hoods are a focal point in the kitchen. They anchor the space and add character. They were built to be functional but far from aesthetically pleasing. So why not make it a try focal point in your kitchen. Make it the statement maker in your kitchen.


Water fall islands are popping up in homes all over the world. Ever since this trend hit the scene, we have seen it incorporated into kitchen design in various ways. They are widely used in contemporary spaces, because of its sleek clean lines. However, we are now seeing them used in transitional spaces as well. They come in quartz, marble, wood, glass and concrete.They are durable, frame your cabinets, and are another great way to add appeal in your kitchen.

Kitchen coloured cabinets are not a new trend. However, this year we are seeing a diverse range of colours for kitchen cabinetry. We are moving away from neutrals to more vibrant, rich hues including two two tone colours. They add warmth and character to a space. Expect to see the kitchen cabinetry in bold, dynamic and exotic shades.


Lighting is a great way to make a difference in your kitchen. With this in mind, if you are looking to transform your space without having to spend so much money, consider changing your lighting. From chandeliers, lanterns pendants,  be daring and bold with your choices.
