How Kitchen Colors Can Affect your Mood and Appetite!

If Instagram has proven anything, it’s that eating is as much about visual appetite as anything else! In fact, even the colors you use in your kitchen can have an impact on your mood and appetite and can influence eating habits. Here are some insights from our team, the leaders in kitchen countertop edges.

  • Blue – an appetite suppressant: Whether it’s because of its naturally calming effect or the fact that there just aren’t that many blue foods in nature, this range of colors is noted for decreasing the appetite and helping people avoid mindless snacking.
  • Yellow and orange – the happy place: These colors have an interesting effect on the body, causing increases in serotonin (the feel-good hormone) in people exposed to it. Kitchens in these colors feel welcoming and energetic and tends to make people feel refreshed.
  • Green – nature, naturally: Green is associated with health, plant life and the outdoors, so it can be a great influence on people looking to improve their diets and lifestyle. This encouraging color can help people stay motivated to pick an apple over an apple pie!
  • Red – an appetite for passion: Red kitchens are very popular and it’s not difficult to see why. This is the color of love, passion, warmth and vitality, and it can encourage us to indulge ourselves by exploring our creativity in the kitchen… or the fridge itself.
  • Black and brown – tones to stay away from: Unless you’re using these colors as part of a neutral color palette, the general rule is to stay away from them. Wood or black countertops/cabinets look beautiful and stylish, but too much of these tones can dominate a kitchen and transform it into an unwelcoming and unappetizing space.

How to Create a His and Hers Bathroom that Works

His and hers bathrooms are a big home trend in 2018, and can be a wonderfully functional and attractive space if designed with care. Here are some insights from our team, the specialists in laminate countertop edging options.

Bathroom Vanities 

The vanity is one of the most important features of any bathroom, and a his and hers space needs the right vanity in order to make this space enjoyable to share and use. If you have the space, it’s best to either install a double vanity with separate basins, faucets and storage along a single wall, or install two separate single vanities opposite one another in the space. It’s also a good idea to double up on mirrors, toothbrush holders and other items of daily use. If you have the space and budget, a double shower is a wonderful feature to add as well!

Clear Space and Open Views 

Workable his and hers bathrooms require some doubling up on different items and features, which can make even a bigger bathroom space look crowded, so it’s important to add features that help keep the space open and uncluttered. Glass-enclosed showers with a curbless entry, windows and furnishings with uniform, simple lines help keep great flow in the bathroom.

Colors and Detail 

Again, because these bathrooms tend to have more features than regular bathrooms, it’s going to take smart design choices to keep it looking like a peaceful, relaxing and functional space. Light colors and white reflect light make a space feel larger, so think about light vanity countertops, wall paint and floor tiles.

Lighting 

If you are changing your regular bathroom to a his and hers bathroom, don’t forget to change your lighting system too. Each bathroom vanity station will need good lighting in order to be functional, and lighting can be positioned in such a way to help create good flow in the space and highlight the areas of dual-use. For example, vanity lighting for each side of the space help keeps your bathroom balanced and functional for both of you.

What Are The Best Kitchen Flooring Options Out There?

Remodeling a kitchen is one of the biggest and most critical home improvement projects you can take on, not just because of the different practical elements that have to fit into the space, but because our kitchens have become so much more than just areas where meals are made. These spaces are the true heart of the home – it’s where we explore our cooking talents, where our kids do their homework, and where friends and family gather for an evening together. This makes choosing the right design and materials – from kitchen countertop edges to furniture – for these spaces a challenge, and finding the right floor is one of the most important decisions homeowners need to make. Here are some of the best options, recommended by our team.

  • Stone and tile: Your floors will need to stand up to heavy traffic, mess and spills – and still look good. Stone and tile options are one of the best ways to achieve this, and there’s an option for almost any price range, although it can become expensive especially when labor is considered. Be sure to choose an option that is slip-resistant and non-porous to avoid dangerous falls and unsightly stains. It can also be a very cold floor in the winter, so be sure that you have adequate heating.
  • Cork flooring: This is quite a New Age flooring concept, offering an eco-friendly choice for homeowners who want a more environmentally friendly home. It’s made from bark that is carefully harvested every 8-10 years from specially cultivated forests, so no trees are felled for this product. It’s waterproof, slip-proof and compressible, making it a comfortable floor to walk on without the coldness of stone or tiles. It will need resealing every 4 years or so, but is very affordable to buy and install.
  • Hardwood: This is a classic look that will never make your kitchen look dated. It’s warm, elegant and never goes out of style, as well as being durable, low-maintenance and water resistant. Using an engineered hardwood is often the better choice for kitchens, as it is constructed to create less movement, swelling and cracking than traditional hardwood. It’s a more expensive flooring option, but often worth it simply for adding value to your home.

Hide the lines on your laminate countertops 

Standard countertop edging has always had one significant drawback – those dark lines where the work surface meets the edging. With new design technology, specialists are able to edge your laminate countertops seamlessly, making that edge part of the surface itself and eliminating unattractive lines.

Added durability to make your countertops last 

Thanks to advancements in manufacturing technology, edging not only looks good, but adds functional durability too. Made with better materials to exact standards, these edge options and profiles are stronger than ever before and can withstand moisture, bumps and scratches far more effectively than standardized edging.

Attractive options to make your countertops your own 

Having a wide range of single and double beveled edges to match or compliment your laminate countertops means that you get to further customize your kitchen countertops and bathroom surfaces. This can really upgrade your look from a simple squared off edge to something really special!

4 qualities of the perfect modern kitchen countertop

The kitchen is definitely the heart of the home. No longer just for cooking, these spaces form the foundation of family life – from entertaining friends and loved ones, to gathering together for meals and conversation. Perfecting this balance means designing a space that is functional as well as attractive, and that means investing in the best countertops and kitchen countertop edges.

  1. They must be hygienic: Regardless of how you want to use your space, countertops need to be hygienic and easily cleaned in order to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria. The best countertops are seamless, smooth and un-textured to prevent dirt and food particles from becoming trapped in the surface. They shouldn’t require the use of specialists or heavy duty cleaning products either.
  2. They must enhance your design: Whether you’re going for a retro 80s look or a modern, sleek and natural look, your countertops should be a main focus for your design. High-impact and highly visible, the different materials, designs and colors of different countertops can dramatically influence the outcome of your remodel.
  3. They must be durable: Kitchen remodels are a big project, and they’re certainly not inexpensive either. The countertops you choose must be able to withstand many years of regular use without chipping, staining or wearing. Kitchen countertop edging is important here, as it provides a strong protective barrier that supports the countertop.
  4. They must fit into your budget: Carrera marble may be a beautiful countertop option, but it’s simply not one that fits into most of our budgets. While countertops can be expensive, you don’t want to choose an option that will dramatically affect your budget for other key items like appliances and cabinets, as this will affect the look of your kitchen as well as how practical and enjoyable it is to use.

Are you ready for bold colored kitchen countertops and edges?

This New Year is all about making a statement, and the kitchen design trends for 2017 are no exception!

Find out more about what’s in store from kitchen countertop edges specialists at Kuehn Bevel.

Blocks of color: Laminate countertops with attitude 

Blocks of solid color add vibrancy and impact in any space, whether you’re redecorating your bathroom, kitchen or work surfaces. Available in every color, from blazing reds and juicy pinks to fresh yellows and rich blues, these expertly manufactured high-pressure laminate surfaces are durable, hygienic and affordable.

Where to use solid color laminate

Top interior designers say that this laminate is best used as a focal point in your space, as it can be overwhelming if applied to every surface in the room. It makes a great contrast when used on a kitchen island where other countertops are natural stone or wood laminate, or in a smaller bathroom that needs a dose of character.

If you do want to commit to using only solid color laminate surfaces in a large space like a kitchen, restaurant or workspace, try to either keep a neutral color palette for the rest of the space (including cabinets, flooring, etc.) or combine it with a second, subtler solid color countertop (for example, using a pale blue as well as a rich, deep blue for contrast).
