Everyone has their "go to" place in a home. For us, we've found that it's usually the one that sends tasty aromas wafting throughout the home a.k.a. the kitchen. Regardless of the demographics, many of our customers agree that the kitchen is the heart of their home. With the fall season now upon us, it's a opportunity to head back indoors and spend even more time gathering together in our kitchens.

The colours of fall also influence kitchen trends and grey is still running well in the pack as are off-white, cream and snow-white colours. These cabinetr colours paired with hints of the autumn colour wheel look stunning, warm and are interestingly familiar. Take for instance the fact that in past decades white and off-white cabinetry has always been in style; that said, it is a wise choice for a kitchen because it will not be dated anytime soon. Trends may come and go, but longevity is what most people are looking to achieve when they decide to renovate. By sticking with a neutral foundation, you can change it up quite easily with some paint and decor while keeping the core colours the same.

Walk-in pantries are also becoming a growing request since having everything handy in one location within the kitchen is best for optimal efficiency. Small appliances, stackables, and easy-view storage makes organizing a cinch. Quartz is still a great choice for countertops, but so is butcher block and the laminates that are on the market today are surprisingly fresh.

Taking the time to research all the choices available to you is never waste of time. Just remember that if you do your homework early on, you will have a great start when you are ready to get the ball rolling.
