Thinking Outside The Box

We’ve been very eager to show you this newly-completed basement kitchenette by the Hawthorne team. It’s a perfect example of using a subtle space in your home effectively to suit your lifestyle and distinct tastes. In fact, we love customizing unique spaces to make you feel completely happy in your home. The simplicity of the beautiful quartz countertop combined with the sleek black cabinetry and the effective use of lighting brings unity and function to this contemporary kitchenette design. This client is a wine enthusiast, and the logistics of this custom wine rack was a fun challenge for our team to take on.

Add Greenery

This is a simple but powerful piece of advice for any living space. It may seem obvious, but we often underestimate the positive impact that plant life can have in our daily routine.  It’s a trend that never goes out of style and creates a fresh feeling conducive to growth and renewal. This can be anything from a kitchen herb garden, small potted plants on your windowsill, hanging baskets or even a living wall. 

Seasonal Decor

A fun habit to adopt is sourcing seasonal decor that fits the unique essence of your beautiful kitchen and rotating those items from season to season. Here are some lovely suggestions for decor you can add to your kitchen and keep it chic! 

Calming Colours

Spring colours or soothing colours for a comforting space… Why choose? You can have it all and style keep your kitchen on-trend, inspired and welcoming for friends, family and even potential buyers. The key is: think about how to bring the beauty of nature inside, and you’ll have an eternal spring within the walls of your home. Check out this great selection of spring-inspired paint colours from Benjamin Moore that will never go out of style.

Health-Conscious Cooking

Many have adopted the notion of eating seasonally due to the immense health and financial benefits. In Ontario, the warmer months are the prime time that we choose lighter options and fresh, often locally-sourced products to fuel our days. Here are five healthy (and delicious) recipes to satisfy your cravings and give you energy!

Homeowners, we’re here for you. The Kingston-based kitchen experts at Hawthorne Kitchens cannot wait to help bring your vision to life, while igniting a sense of energy and excitement back into the hub of your home! Please contact our team for any questions or to book a consultation. Happy spring!
