Traits of a Well-Designed Kitchen and Bath

Lewis Floor and Home: Traits of a Well-Designed Kitchen and Bath

More and more people feel comfortable designing with their own personal style in mind. Instead of just the basics, you will see lots of hand painted cement tiles (or porcelain that mimics the hand painted look), wide distressed wood planks, and decorative 3D (dimensional) tile used as accent walls. Marble and cement looks in quartz countertops are replacing granite slabs, and chrome and pewter plumbing fixtures are now in black and brass finishes. There’s been a strong shift from traditional design to a mix of industrial, mid-century modern, or rustic trends.

Smart technologies and functionality are taking center stage for both kitchen and bath design. Smart devices are becoming more and more mainstream — from Hunter Douglas motorized window treatments controlled from your phone to heated tile floors in bathrooms, touchless faucets, and toilets with low water consumption.

Functionality is included in every well-designed kitchen — plenty of pantry storage, an island or peninsula with seating, countertop space for food prep with a big sink, and enough walk around space so more than one person can easily work in the space comfortably are in high demand. For the bathroom, it’s important to include lots of storage and great lighting.

Lewis Floor and Home: white cabinets

When it comes to countertop trends, in first place is quartz for kitchen and baths. White still remains the cabinet color of choice, but it’s paired with warmer items like wood counters, backsplash tile in bold patterns, and island cabinets in shades of blue, gray, and taupe to complement the white perimeter cabinets.

Lewis Floor and Home is not your typical showroom. They bring in the best quality merchandise in every product category and at every price point. Each room of a home dictates a different quality of product and can be subject to varying levels of use and traffic. For example, a master bath requires a more luxurious feel and look compared to a kids playroom that needs flooring to be durable and hold up to heavy use. LFH can do it all!
