Thinking about updating the look of your kitchen? Maybe you’re interested in remodeling your kitchen or building a brand new home on that perfect corner lot in New Orleans or Metairie. DMG constantly researches all the newest improvements in kitchen design, and has done all the hard work for you already. Our custom built homes and kitchen renovations are made to improve your morning routine and dinner prep after a long day at work. Take a look at some of our favorite recent kitchen renovations below.
Marble Kitchen Countertops
The elements of this Metairie kitchen renovation are surprisingly traditional, despite the high gloss finish of the cabinets and integrated LED under cabinet lighting (a must have for any gourmet kitchen renovation). The marble countertops with beveled edge and farmhouse sink are a nod to traditional design, but the design maintains a bright and modern feel.
Color Blocked Kitchens
There is an interesting mix of contrasting materials and surfaces in this custom built kitchen in Metairie. The lack of hanging kitchen cabinets allows for a clean fresh look that accentuates the modern vibe. Dark ebony and white, a top kitchen color palette for 2017, are the predominant colors in this design, and the on-trend light wood flooring helps keep the design light and airy.
Tonal White Kitchens
White is a classic color choice that makes this Metairie kitchen renovation feel fresh, clean, and welcoming. It’s also one of the top kitchen color trends for 2017. Balancing a white palette with creamy off-whites and natural hues in stone countertops can create a breathtaking look, rich with character and warmth. See the before and after photos here.
Transitional kitchens incorporate both traditional and contemporary elements. Over the past few years, transitional kitchens have become a popular style for kitchens in New Orleans, with many homeowners remodeling their kitchens to reflect this style. This kitchen features on-trend transitional cabinets with bold natural stone countertops, and a trendy shaped tile backsplash. As a result, the space is bright and inviting.
This traditional Metairie kitchen has warm rich cabinets with milled accents, a mosaic backsplash and blue walls. Blue is a classic kitchen color choice, and top picks include tones with grey or purple (think slate, denim, periwinkle, and indigo). Consider using blues in your kitchen renovation – either on the walls, or in your kitchen island barstools and china cabinet.
Tile Backsplash is Fresh and on Trend
More designers are opting to forego solid stone backsplashes in favor of a tiled backsplash with clean lines. This breaks up the counter and wall space and creates more visual interest. Subway tiles are particularly on trend for New Orleans kitchen renovations.
Sculptural Kitchen Lighting Shines in this Metairie Kitchen Renovation
Kitchen lighting has made the shift from utilitarian to remarkable. The eye-catching light fixtures in this kitchen give you an elevated level of design while maintaining the relaxed feel of the space. Don’t be afraid to go bold! Chandeliers are showing up in unexpected places, like closets and bathrooms, as well as the kitchen.
