Storage Keeps Getting Smarter

In this new economy, where more of us are staying home and eating in, efficient storage is a must for the kitchen. “There are amazing systems that have such smart, condensed storage. One drawer can fit everything you can possibly think of,” notes Sassaman.

Style Meets Function

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and today’s kitchens are more styled than ever, with unique features that seamlessly integrate function and style. Innovative storage solutions are allowing homeowners to customize their kitchens in new ways while keeping favorite ingredients at their fingertips.

It’s All About Integrated Appliances

Fully integrated refrigerators and dishwashers are all part of the new luxury in kitchen storage. “At GE Monogram we have a built-in refrigerator that is truly flush with the surrounding cabinetry. You don’t even realize that it’s a refrigerator. The top compartment is a fridge, the middle is a freezer and the bottom can be a freezer, fridge or wine drawer depending on your needs that day,” says Paula Cecere from GE Monogram.

Dress It Up With Molding

“Molding and trims always add to the look and make kitchen storage feel custom and specialized.” Kelly Morisseau suggests custom shelving that can be easily adjusted and shallow-depth pantries to make room for an island and additional prep space.

Pantries Sport High-End Finishes

This pantry sports a modular pullout cabinet and stainless steel shelving. “Homeowners are savvier about design and are taking time to think about the types of hardware and finishes they want in the kitchen. People want pantries that have a cleaner look,” says Sassaman.

Sunny Day Umbrellas 
Provide sun protection with style. Upgrade your patio or deck with an umbrella that sports a fun color or pattern.
Unify furnishings in a spectrum of colors with the accessories you choose. An assortment of furniture pulls together as a seating area when they share stripe pillows. An outdoor rug unifies the arrangement.
Easy Solution 
Colorful containers are a simple way to brighten an outdoor space. Choose pots in various colors, sizes, and textures.
Coordinate Color 
Look to the flowers and plants in your yard for color inspiration. Use the hues you find to accessorize your outdoor spaces. Purple pillows on this patio match the flowers blooming in the nearby containers.
Use patterns alongside color to enliven your outdoor spaces. Implement patterns in your outdoor decor the same as you do indoors.
Paint dining chairs in bright colors and arrange them around a neutral tabletop. Distressed finishes and bold accessories give this open-air dining space even more personality.
Color Upfront While outdoor living spaces in the backyard are prime for color infusions, don’t forget your front stoop or porch. Use colorful pots for plants, or even add a piece of furniture or two.
Cut a Rug 
Explore outdoor rug options to make outdoor living spaces feel more like rooms. Available in a myriad of colors, patterns, and sizes, these outdoor rugs often closely resemble their indoor counterparts in looks but are fabricated to brave moisture, sunlight, and the other weather elements.
Pretty Fabrics 
Create an outdoor room with fabric. This deck’s setup is similar to an indoor living room arrangement: Outdoor fabrics in pretty patterns cover the plush seat cushions, the arbor serves as a wall and ceiling, and panels hang from the arbor to mimic window treatments. Accents such as lanterns and throw pillows complete the look.
Quaint Details 
Hand painted stencils, such as the botanical motif on the surface of this pillow, are an easy way to punch up outdoor fabric.
Metal furniture is generally affordable and it gives a cool color vibe to your garden or patio. A bar cart is always ready for a party, offering up a handy serving surface.
Colorful Starting Point 
The home’s exterior creates the perfect starting point for this patio’s color scheme. Orange accents, such as throw pillows, hanging fabric, and an oversize letter “B,” stand out against the green exterior. Wood candle holders and potted plants bring the natural elements of the yard onto the patio. With plenty of seating and multiple tables, this patio is just right for enjoying bright summer days and warm summer nights.
