The Best Ways to Improve Your Kitchen

You spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It is the one room where everyone gathers together to cook, eat, do homework, and a million other things. It only makes sense that you can become bored with it. It can start to look dull and dreary, it may feel like it isn't functioning properly, and there may not be enough room for everyone to be together.

Balancing Custom Features and Standard Features

Remodeling or updating a kitchen can increase its functionality and enhance its appearance. There’s nearly an endless number of kitchen designs that can serve as inspiration for you. When it comes down to the final design choices, it’s important to create a balance between custom and standard features.

The right granite countertop for your kitchen

If you aren't a visual person, it can be difficult to imagine just what a space will look like when you have finished renovations. Sure, you can hire someone to help you make a mock-up of your kitchen or bathroom, but that can be a big expense that doesn't really work for most people. Instead, an interior designer can paint you a picture with words that lays out exactly what the finished room will look like.

Glass philosophy

Anna Torfs began designing her own glass collections in 2002, and through the years developed two beautiful lines, Anna Torfs Basics and Anna Torfs Edition. Her approach: to create contemporary design using traditional glass techniques. Color is crucial, evoking emotions, but transparency and translucency are not always identical, that is Anna's central theme.

Bird, flowers and special pottery

Whitney Smith fell in love with throwing clay on the wheel when taking a class at Cabrillo College in Santa Cruz, in 1994. She had a great teacher (how important is to have an intelligent mentor!), Dan Martinez, who trained her, and taught her handmade  pottery basics. Then, she continued working for Sandi Dihl, a Santa Cruz artist, while taking anthropology classes. At that time she totally fell in love with this peace of art and decided to transform it in a full-time job. Whitney worked as an assistant for Bob Pool, while continuing to develop her own work, and began working as a full-time potter in 2000.
