This blog features Schlage employees who are passionate about the products and services they support.


As your life changes and your personal style evolves, so should the functionality and look of your home. Maybe your family has grown since you moved in. Or you cook and entertain more than you used to. Before you start demolishing your current kitchen, consider the needs it must meet and start building a list of features your dream kitchen would have. Here are five of our favorites to help you get started.

1. Rustic Elegance

Does your style err more towards traditional? We're loving this farmhouse inspired kitchen that's built to withstand the high traffic of a busy family while inviting you to prepare a gourmet meal. Our favorite touch is the cozy trim around the stove area giving it the look of a grand old fireplace or brick oven.

2. Contemporary Organization

Wall to wall storage is an organizers dream come true! By keeping the cabinets and walls all white, this design ensures that this open kitchen feels wide and spacious. If you love color, play with pops of color on just a few cabinets and accessories.

3. Eclectic Creativity

This gorgeous kitchen is the stuff industrial rustic dreams are made of! We love how the designers chose to keep the original hardwood but opted for a more practical option by placing tile where traffic is the highest and moisture from the refrigerator and sink are most likely to occur. Get creative with your new kitchen by replacing the traditional island with something unexpected and unique. Satin brass hardware provides a modern alternative to bright brass finishes.

4. Bold and Trendy

It's no secret that prints and patterns are big this year. Bring this trend in to your kitchen remodel to add more interest. We love how this designer got extra creative by using a chevron pattern for the backsplash above the stove. This bold pattern works in this space as it is broken up by two large windows on either side, preventing the print from taking over the whole kitchen.

5. Modern and Sophisticated

If your personal taste is drawn more towards clean and modern designs, then this kitchen is your perfect oasis. We love how traffic throughout the home can easily flow around the island. Its openness to the living and dining areas make it the perfect space to entertain.  We also love how this designer brought in a bit of natural texture with exposed beams for extra support.
