Whether you are remodeling your kitchen or building a new home, many people struggle with determining their kitchen’s style and how they want to decorate it. Here are a few tips from the design experts at Kitchen Islands and Carts:

Get Inspiration by Looking at and Saving Pictures

A pattern will show itself. You will find that a whole bunch of your kitchen inspiration images may need to be added to a lookbook (like Pinterest) for a future farmhouse or weekend getaway, but don’t skip over them just because they don’t relate to this project, save them for later.

Go Nuts While Finding Inspiration, but then Organize

It’s fine to be unorganized and even a little messy with your photo categorization. If you’d like to organize your photos in your lookbook, then you’re a step ahead of us, but for those who don’t, don’t sweat it. There’s time to go back to your photos and categorize them later.

Determine Your Style

From here, you have a general idea of what you like from categorizing and organizing your inspirational images. Find your common themes and patterns and then decide which you like best. This could be a particular color scheme, pattern, or style. Make it yours!
