Kitchen Remodeler: Three Eye-Catching Ideas for a Kitchen Focal Point

Every room needs a focal point–one item that ties up all the design elements of a room together. This includes rooms like the kitchen, since a focal point help break the monotony of cabinetry and walls that older kitchens have.

Creating a focal point in your kitchen is relatively simple, especially when you work with a trusted kitchen remodeler like Valley Home Improvement Inc. To help you brainstorm a design that you’ll love, here are a few ideas to get you started:

Idea #1: Install an Accent Countertop

There’s no rule that says all your countertops must be made from the same material. Make a statement by using a different material for one large countertop. A good starting point would be to have a large wooden countertop for your kitchen island. To really bring attention to it, you may want to add a few stools. This design idea helps “invite guests” over to your accent countertop, allowing your countertop to be a great conversation starter.

Idea #2: Put Up Textured Walls

If bold colors don’t tickle your fancy, you may want to opt for textured walls instead. Textured walls can easily break up a monotonous space with ease and makes a wall “pop” thanks to the 3-D effect it offers. The “wow” factor of this design element is great if you’ve fallen in-love with a monochrome theme for your kitchen. Consider this option if you love a futuristic look.

Idea #3: Take Advantage of a View

Do you have a beautiful garden that’s the envy of the neighborhood? Perhaps your home has an inspiring view of the lake? In either case, take advantage of it! Sometimes, the focal point of your kitchen doesn’t have to be something that’s added. Try having large glass panels installed instead of a wall to make your view the focal point of a truly breathtaking kitchen.
