This week we are pinning to our group board Kitchens. Let us know if you’d like to be added to this board!

Our KBtribechat Questions: 

1.) Is aesthetic beauty the main reason for your design crush on a kitchen?: Explain!

2.) Sometimes the whole is more than the sum of the parts. Please share images of kitchens you LOVE and tell us why you find them exciting!

3.) How does appliance choice affect our reaction to a kitchen?

4.) How do you go about choosing color for the kitchen? Do “colors of the year” affect your choices? What colors do you find spectacular for kitchens?

5.) Mixing metal details is a fun way to add excitement to a space. Do you like this concept? Why? Share images of kitchens that do a good job including mixed metals!

6.) Can designing for health and sustainability also be a trophy kitchen? Explain!

7.) Sometimes we find ourselves crushing on the details. What kitchen organizers, storage solutions, decorative hardware, lighting or tech have delighted you?
