Incorporating 2021 Color(s) of the Year into your Decor & Design

The Pantone Colors of the Year 2021 have been announced as PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating.

These two independent colors highlight how different elements come together to support each other. This plays very well into design by incorporating complementing colors within your living space to instill a sense of balance. 

The combination of these two colors gives us hope and inspiration. This seems very fitting after the past year we have endured. The Illuminating color is a bright, cheerful yellow that brings hope to overcome the continuing uncertainty within us. The Ultimate Grey color brings solid, dependable elements which provide a firm foundation and helps us feel steady and composed. 

“The union of an enduring Ultimate Gray with the vibrant yellow Illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted; this is essential to the human spirit.” - Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

When working with our team of designers to bring your space to life, bringing in your favorite shades can be something to consider. However, when choosing finishes like cabinet color an tile, it’s important to think long term. If you’re looking to incorporate popular colors, consider bold artwork, accent pillows, paint and other decor that can be more easily changed. 

Need more ideas on how to incorporate the 2021 colors of the year or your other favorite shades into your home design? Contact Signature Kitchens of Vero Beach and we would love to help you out.

Things we learned about organizing from watching The Home Edit

Our kitchens are some of the highest traffic, high-use spaces in our homes. Because of this, they can also easily become the most disorganized. Like many during quarantine, we watched Get Organized with The Home Edit as it made its Netflix debut and immediately wanted to get to work on organizing our own spaces. Here are some tips we learned from the ladies of The Home Edit: 

 

The pantry:

While The Home Edit girls don’t have a one-size-fits-all system, they always recommend breaking things into categories vs. their traditional rainbow system. Look at your items and break them into groups like snacks, dinner, baking, kids, or health foods. Another tip? The smaller the space, the more meticulous you need to be with your organizing strategy. 

 

The fridge: 

Just like with other areas of the home, The Home Edit suggests starting with taking EVERYTHING out to take inventory. While everything is out, deep clean the inside of the fridge while you’re at it. While everything is out, group like items together and divide your fridge into sections so you can visualize where everything will go when you put it back. The final step? Contain and label! Keeping items in containers within the fridge ensures that keeping your fridge and freezer clean and organized will be easier to maintain. The bottom line? It takes effort to make sure you put everything back in the right place. Plus, don’t buy groceries you don’t need or don’t use to avoid throwing away food. 

 

Drawers:

Once again, take everything out of your drawers so you can see just how much you have. It may surprise you! Chances are, there are plenty of utensils that you can consign or donate. Less is more when it comes to kitchen items and appliances. Focus on quality and not quantity. Invest in drawer dividers that fit the size of your drawers to keep your hard work in place when you start to put things back. While you have everything out, maybe now is a good time to evaluate if you liked where things were located around your kitchen too!

 

Special stations: 

Consider creating special stations for your favorite things! Do you love a gourmet morning coffee? Create a specific counter space, coffee cabinet, or coffee cart for everything you need, all in one place. Bringing in fun decor can bring personality and function together too!

Roles Our Kitchens Play

A kitchen is now much more than just a place to cook. It’s also used for entertaining guests, doing homework, sharing meals with the family, working from home, and e-learning. The layout of your kitchen should serve all of these needs. Contact Signature Kitchens to help with all of your remodel or new construction projects. 

In the past, a kitchen’s sole purpose was to make meals, therefore they used to be closed off from the rest of the house. However, as time went on, kitchens have become a main living space of the house. People are yearning for a layout that can better accommodate entertaining guests. When it is safe to get together again, make sure the host is still involved in conversations when they are cooking by creating an open concept kitchen that allows views to the family room. An island with bar seating is also a great addition that promotes conversation while the host is preparing food in the kitchen. Working with Signature Kitchens of Vero Beach will bring your custom kitchen ideas to life by creating an open-concept kitchen to suit your needs, specific lifestyle, and entertaining style.

Because COVID-19 has banished us to our homes to stay safe, people need to find new spaces around the house to set up their remote work areas. Many don’t have home offices and resort to the kitchen table all while kids are also using the kitchen table or island as their desk for e-learning. Organization and functionality are more important than ever. We can adjust your kitchen space to add storage for school supplies and work files in a convenient location so all paperwork has a home. Say goodbye to cluttered kitchen tables with stacks of papers. Signature Kitchens can help create beautiful cabinetry to hide all of the clutter.

Let Signature Kitchens transform your kitchen to meet your family’s needs today. Please
