What Houzz contributors are saying:

Anne Ellard Design added this to How to Choose the Right Finish for New Kitchen Cabinets
Disadvantages of mattA surface with a matt finish absorbs light as opposed to reflecting it. This results in a more muted look. You should also note that, because matt-finish cabinet fronts don’t reflect any light, they won’t help to make your space feel any bigger, if that’s what you are trying to achieve. Matt finish cabinet fronts are not quite as easy to clean as gloss cabinets are, because the matt surface isn’t as smooth. Even so, they are not difficult to clean. Again, use a microfibre cloth, which won’t ever scratch your cabinets. If you are choosing a laminate material for your cabinet fronts, ensure that you check out samples carefully and that the material preferably has a smooth flat finish. Some matt-finish laminates have a texture to them, and this makes them slightly more difficult to clean as a textured finish will give dirt and dust more surface to stick to – but it shouldn’t stop you buying textured laminates as they can look spectacular in the kitchen. Ideally, choose a sparely textured surface with a low profile.What to consider when choosing cabinet handles
Bagnato Architecture & Interiors added this to Timber, Veneer or Laminate: What's Best for Your Kitchen Joinery?
How to mix veneer and solid timberA kitchen is an area of a house where families congregate and many tasks are undertaken. This modern kitchen is more than a food preparation area – it’s also a dining space, an area to accommodate the laptop for work (or homework), and somewhere to read the newspaper. The design called for a selection of materials that would accommodate all these uses. Solid American oak timber is the perfect choice for a breakfast bench getting regular use, while a contrasting natural oak veneer for the underside of the island bench and the overhead cupboards is a perfect complement – it provides a different colour in its grain. A durable water-resistant stone has been used for the benchtops and a hard wearing paint finish has been applied to the rear cabinets.
Adam Hobill : Design added this to Hidden Costs to Consider in a Kitchen Renovation
Changes to flooringOne of the more common traps for blowing a kitchen renovation budget is the unforeseen need to redo the flooring. The problem occurs when walls and cabinetry are removed, and gaps are created in the flooring. However, even if you have budgeted for the replacement of the kitchen floor, you may also need to consider where that new flooring starts and finishes, especially when we consider that a lot of kitchen renovations also involve the opening up of areas to create an open-plan space. In those situations, the lovely new timber floor for the kitchen may also need to be extended out into the adjoining dining and family areas, otherwise the clashing floor finishes may undermine the whole renovation. The tip is to consider the wider space involved, especially when you are creating new open-plan rooms.

4. Plan for safe designRather than waiting for problems with advancing age to kick in, think ahead before age makes the change necessary. Think of kitchen safety by ensuring that your kitchen is not a thoroughfare, as congestion only creates opportunities for collisions and accidents. Allow an aisle of at least 1 metre between built-ins for a single user, 1.2 metres for two users and for wheelchair access, 1.5 metres.See how acccessible design makes wheelchair living easier
Lunchbox Architect added this to Houzz Tour: High Street House Shows What's Possible in the 'Burbs
Dramatic charcoal kitchen cabinetry gives the illusion of receding, helping the show-stopping island bench to pop. Made from a combination of timber and crisp white reconstituted stone, the island is another sculptural feature in the home. It’s easily big enough for all the family and friends to gather around, so cooking in this home is a truly communal activity. This is a nice gesture that helps to highlight a lifestyle that includes casual dining to be shared with family and friends. American oak timber floor: Bunnings; ‘Pure White’ benchtop: Caesarstone
Kerryn Ramsey added this to Cook up a Quirky Kitchen With an Unconventional Island
10. Diverse seatingFor many cooks, it’s easy to feel left out when slaving in the kitchen. This dilemma is solved by adding plenty of functional – and super-stylish – seating around a central island. Here, versatility is the operative word. Two backless stools at the extended timber end create a small, informal eating area – ideal for a quick snack any time of the day. Meanwhile, the addition of more formal stools along the side of the island make this space a central hub, ensuring family and friends can relax and dine together with the cook.See more social kitchen islands
Jenny Drew added this to 14 Design Ideas From the Most Popular Kitchen Photos of 2016
1. Contrasting benchtop materialsSometimes one benchtop material just isn’t enough, and following the trend in mismatched kitchen cupboard doors came contrasting benchtop materials. In this kitchen – the most popular kitchen for Australian Houzzers in 2016 – a solid American oak timber cantilevered breakfast bench contrasts perfectly with a durable, water-resistant stone benchtop to create a super-hardworking island designed for cooking and entertaining.
