Byron Guibord Interior, December 10th , 2017. Less is truly more when it comes to modern spaces. In this school of design, rather than thinking of negative space as something empty that needs to be filled, it‘s seen as an active detail in creating a minimalist aesthetic. The key to pulling off this look is making every design element count.

Delit Desaulniers Kitchen, December 10th , 2017. As with other countertop materials, stainless steel offers some options for edge finishes. The most common is a 1.5-inch wrap that mimics the depth of a standard countertop, using an eased square edge. Other choices are a beveled edge, bullnosed or rounded edge, or no metal on the edge at all.

Roger Barjavel Interior, December 10th , 2017. If a monochromatic look seems a little too intense for your home, there’s an easy way to brighten up the space while adding more visual interest: Just add natural materials such as wood, stone or metal. Choose one or incorporate a variety.
Guillaume Goguen Kitchen, December 10th , 2017. Ideally, a kitchen should have lots of natural light and that usually means that sacrifices have to be made in order to accommodate large windows or that you have to find a way to design your kitchen with an open and bright decor.

It’s both a window and a backsplash and it’s exactly what a kitchen needs to look bright, spacious and inviting. Lots of architects and designers agree.
Durandana Patenaude Kitchen, December 10th , 2017. The most common type is made from boards placed on their sides and glued so that the narrower edge forms the surface. De Vos Woodworking says the strips can be “continuous lengths with no joints, or random- length pieces that are finger-jointed.“ These types of countertops work best in for large countertops, like long kitchen counters or island tops. Because wood only moves in one direction, across its width, edge grain butcher block is more stable than other wood countertops. It can also be less pricey.
Lorraine Duplanty Kitchen, December 10th , 2017. Like other wood countertops, live edge counters look better with age as long as they are cared for. When choosing a live edge piece, look for wood from a builder or craftsman who air dries the wood for a number of years and kiln dries it to lower its moisture levels.
Brigitte Dupuis Interior, December 10th , 2017. While these two options are not necessarily mutually exclusive, it does take some know-how to combine them cohesively. Trendy can be too bold, and traditional can be too boring. However, finding a balance of both trendy and traditional means you’ll love the space now, and continue to enjoy it years down the road.
