“The choice of materials and layout design sets the stage, considering all the elements is vital to bathroom design,” said Julie Holzman, Principal Interior Designer for Holzman Interiors.

The furniture includes vanities raised off the floor, which makes it easier to clean and install. Matching storage cabinets, which can have glass or mirrored doors, offer plenty of room for towels, toiletries and more.

Different styles are available – whether you prefer a more modern floating sink with open shelving, or a more traditional look with wood-mirrors and porcelain sinks, there are options to please everyone.

An Island Oasis In Your Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the main areas in the home where people gather or entertain. A kitchen island can become a centerpiece for social activity.

Many of our kitchen designs include an island, and you may not realize how many options there are available for kitchen islands.

Some things to think about are what you want to use the island for, whether it will be a prep space, an eating area, provide additional storage and if you want a sink or appliances included.

An island needs to go with the flow of the kitchen. In this Connecticut home, this large island has curves to offer more space around it and different levels that allow stools to be tucked in under the counter. It also has an extra sink, which can be used to wash vegetables, fill pots or drain pasta closer to the stove.

This large island has an extra sink, a steamer, plenty of prep space and seating.

You don’t have to have a large kitchen to have an island, for example in this Fifth Avenue apartment, a smaller square island provides an eating and prep area. The stools can provide additional seating, a great space to sit for breakfast or a quick snack.

Islands also reflect the style of the kitchen. This modern kitchen island has a waterfall counter, that flows down one side for a dramatic look. It has two pendant lamps to provide light and stools that tuck under the counter.

This waterfall counter island makes a statement in a modern kitchen.

Think about lighting, whether you want a larger pendant lamp, multiple smaller lamps, or a few medium-size lamps. With multiple smaller lamps, they can hang at different levels, creating an interesting look. Another option is a longer, hanging tray with candles. The style of the lighting is part of your overall look, whether you prefer a more modern or traditional style. The size of the island will impact how many lights you want as well.

This kitchen island has one larger lamp above. Consider lighting options as part of your overall kitchen design plan.

Another consideration is if you want seating at the island, and the height you prefer. The basic choices are table, counter or bar height. This square island has chairs, which may be preferred for younger children or if you use the counter for work and are sitting for longer periods.

Kitchen islands provide storage, with cabinets and drawers, and can include a wine fridge or wine storage area or dishwasher. When designing the island, consider if you want to include these types of items that may need plumbing or electrical connections as part of the design. It is important to work with a designer to make sure this is taken into consideration as part of the planning for contractors.

Showroom Highlights Many Design Options

When designing a new kitchen or bathroom, it can be hard to visualize what types of cabinets or finishes would work best in your home. Holzman Interiors welcomes clients to their new showroom in Stamford, Conn., to see many options in Dura Supreme cabinetry.

Visitors to the showroom can see different styles of cabinets for kitchens, or vanities for bathrooms, as well as a wide selection of faucets, tiles, sinks and countertops. The showroom, located at 63 Harbor View Ave., in Stamford, features Tile America backsplash options and tiles.

To help keep your kitchen organized, Dura Supreme offers different drawers, such as ones with dividers for silverware or kitchen tools, or knife blocks within a drawer. A new option is a toe-kick drawer, designed for installation in the toe space of any straight cabinet, adding additional storage space. A touch-latch mechanism is included, so a simple touch of the toe will open the drawer.

The wide drawer can be used to store cutting boards, baking sheets or table linens for example. This type of solution can add more storage space without adding more square footage.

Dura Supreme Cabinetry offers many different colors and finishes for their cabinets, which can be used in kitchen, bathroom or living room designs.

Weathered collection

Reminiscent of softly weathered wood, Dura Supreme’s Weathered collection of finishes looks as if it has been exposed to years of sun, wind and rain. Like an old drift fence, tumbled driftwood, or seasoned barn planks, each of the Weathered finishes portrays wood that has been exposed to the elements. The Weathered Finish collection includes an array of colors that evoke images of sun-bleached driftwood, charred campfires or time-worn dock planks.

Glass cabinets trends

Dura Supreme also has recently updated its cabinetry glass to target trends in kitchen and bath cabinetry. New updates include white and black back-painted glass options, leaded glass doors, and a new collection of mirror options for both framed and mullion cabinet doors.

The largest update to Dura Supreme’s glass program is the new mirror section. Choices now range from beveled mirror, antique mirror, gray mirror, bronze mirror and standard mirror.  Mirrors have been used as a decorative accent in home interiors for a long time, however, incorporating the reflective and airy look of mirror within cabinetry as an emerging trend.  Mirror used within cabinetry doors (behind mullions or simply in place of a glass door) is another wonderful way to add light within a kitchen.
