The Four Staples of Kitchen Design

If you want your kitchen to look as cohesive and gorgeous as the ones in the magazines, Discount Kitchens can help! We’ve put together a list of the 4 staples of kitchen design. When you’re ready to do your kitchen renovation, these 4 things will be what determines the overall potential your kitchen has for looking amazing. So, let’s check out those really important elements and why they matter.


The cabinetry in your kitchen is, without a doubt, one of the most important parts of its design. They make up most of what fills it and their color and style will dominate the entire room. Choosing your kitchen cabinet design is tantamount to choosing your kitchen design as a whole.

If you’re looking to have a somewhat country design, white, shaker cabinets might be the way to go. These are also a great choice for minimalism. Black, glossy cabinets would go well in a kitchen meant to be contemporary and sleek. No matter what you go with, remember that it will effect the entire look of the kitchen. While white shakers are flexible and can work with different styles, based on the other staples, some other styles are less flexible.

When picking out your cabinet style, remember that the hardware you pair with it will also have an effect on how they influence the room’s style.


The next most important element is the type of appliances in your kitchen. Think for a moment how vastly different a kitchen can look with white, black, or stainless steel appliances. When choosing the design for your kitchen, you’ll want to decide which appliance type will suit that design best.

Remember, there are up-to-date appliances of all colors. If you decide that white appliances are what you need, don’t settle for outdated ones. You can get top-of-the-line appliances in white as well, even if black and stainless steel are what they’re advertised in most often.


The countertops you choose are another important staple to your kitchen design. Different stones mean different colors. A lot of stones will only look good in contemporary or sleek kitchens. Sealed, wooden countertops look fantastic in country kitchens. If you’re going for a more retro look, tile countertops might even be a good choice. It all depends on the style you’re after. Just remember, the countertop you choose will not go under the radar; it will affect your kitchen design.

Backsplash or Paint

Last, but not least, is the paint color you choose or the style of your backsplash. As a matter of fact, having a backsplash at all is a design statement. When you’re in the process of designing your kitchen, choose whether you have a backsplash, what style you go for, and what color it is wisely.

If you go for paint instead, go for something that will add a touch of flavor to your design – a flavor that compliments it. Contemporary kitchens may look good with a dim blue on the walls. A sleek kitchen with black appliances may look nice with a slate gray. A country kitchen might just need some rusty red paint instead.
