Kitchen design quotes

A kitchen has to be pretty. That’s important to me, but even more important is that is has to be functional, well thought out, and carefully designed. ~ Fernanda Bourlot, designer

Think twice before incorporating a trend concept or material into the kitchen. In fact, the more rewarding road to a truly lasting kitchen design is to define you very own personal style. ~ Susan Serra, kitchen designer

Repaint the back wall and/or side walls of glass door cabinets. Adding a fresh colour of raspberry, coral or an elegant charcoal colour against white dishes will dramatically change the look. ~ Susan Serra

Open shelving is great for easy access, but it’s also nice to view my pottery. ~ Amy Neunsinger, photographer

Friends relax in my kitchen to enjoy a drink and appetizers while I cook. Comfortable seating and an island to prepare food so that they can watch while I’m cooking were essential. ~ Fernanda Bourlot

The best kitchens are those that combine function, personality and good design. Spaces where you want to linger, even after you’ve finished cooking. ~ Alexis Solomon, designer
