Is European Kitchen Design Right for Your Home?

Todays Designer Kitchens Euroline-Ultra-2000x1200 Is European Kitchen Design Right for Your Home?

European kitchen design is on trend and features beautiful minimalism, but is it the right choice for your home?

Less is more in a European kitchen. They are designed to be sleek in design. Homes in Europe are smaller and so are kitchens, therefore the focus is on functionality and efficiency. Kitchen cabinets are no exception. In order to maximize space, European kitchen cabinets are often simple. They feature flat surfaces, flush doors, little to no hardware and do not have many decorations or “frills”.

European kitchens have frame-less construction – or full overlay. This means, cabinets are constructed without a face frame attached to the front of the cabinet box. All that is visible are flat door and drawer fronts. This frame-less construction offers a seamless look while maximizing space as there is no divider in between the cabinets. Because of this frame-less construction, hinges and hardware are often hidden – adding to the seamless, streamlined aesthetic.


North American cabinets tend to be larger and more ornate, with a focus on aesthetics and style.

Todays Designer Kitchens euroline-basix-shaker-1024x576 Is European Kitchen Design Right for Your Home?

European cabinets are usually crafted from premium materials like solid wood or MDF. * They are intended to be highly practical. They have little decorative features, with a focus on practicality and functionality. European cabinets are designed to maximize space and provide ample storage without taking up too much room.

*Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming it into panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is generally denser than plywood. It is made up of separated fibres but can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood.

Materials Used

Materials used for European cabinets are tough, sturdy, and can endure regular use without getting damaged easily. Many European cabinets are also designed to be eco-friendly, focusing on using sustainable materials and minimizing waste.


One of the key features of European cabinets is their functionality. These items are created to make the most of available space and offer sufficient storage without occupying too much area. Many European cabinets are also designed to be highly customizable, with various storage options and configurations available.


To choose your home cabinets, it’s important to know the distinction between European and American cabinets. European cabinets are typically more functional and practical, while American cabinets are often more ornate and decorative. In the end, deciding between these two styles is based on what you personally prefer and what your home requires. By exploring the differences between these two styles, you can create a kitchen space that truly reflects your style and taste.

Todays Designer Kitchens undermount-sink UNDERMOUNT SINKS - Pros and Cons
Todays Designer Kitchens undermount-sink UNDERMOUNT SINKS - Pros and Cons

If you are remodeling the kitchen you will need to choose a sink and an undermount style is a popular choice so today we will examine its pros and cons.

Traditional kitchen sinks drop in and rest on top of the counter. However, undermount sinks — a growing trend in the last few years — sit under the countertop’s surface, creating a continuous flow from countertop to sink.

Pro: Undermount Sinks Are Clean

Seamless looks are in and look sleek and modern. Undermount sinks attach to the underside of the countertop. Because of this, there’s no raised edge or lip on the top of the counter, where food and debris might collect so they are easier to clean and keep clean.

Con: Undermount Sinks Can Fail if Installed Incorrectly

Professional installation is vital in an undermount sink. That means clips or straps need to be part of the process not just silicone.

The proper way to install an undermount sink involves screwing it into the countertop to properly secure the sink. Failure to mount the kitchen sink properly could result in it dropping. An effect that can happen gradually over time.

Pro: Undermount Sinks are Desirable for Resale

The undermount style has surged in popularity and are often seen as a premium to homebuyers . If you are thinking about selling your home in the near future, an undermount sink is a good investment for resale.

Con: Undermount Price

Undermount sinks can be more expensive than drop ins. That being said there are a wide variety of price options that are available.

Pro: Undermount Faucet Placement

Faucets can be conveniently placed in any location with undermount sinks. Many don’t come with pre-drilled holes like overmount sinks usually do, which allows you to place the faucet in the most convenient location.

Wrap Up

Undermount sinks are all the rage right now, but they also are very practical for a kitchen no matter what your budget.

If you are in need of a kitchen makeover and need some expert advice our team at Today’s Designer Kitchens would be pleased to give you a free in-home estimate.

We specialize in kitchen solutions from floor to ceiling for every homeowner and every budget with a fast turnaround.

If your kitchen isn’t working for you consider these 8 factors that may be reason for you to consider a redo in this important space once and for all.


Maybe you’ve tried repainting cabinets, replacing hardware, or switching up appliances. Or, you could have tried smaller jobs like painting the walls or buying new window treatments. If whatever you have tried isn’t doing the trick, considering putting an end to spending on the little things and instead making an investment that will cost more but in the long run give you so much more back.

GOOD WORKFLOW – A Step Charcoal Grey Galley Kitchen – Today’s Designer Kitchens

Tripping over yourself or others in the kitchen space? Not able to easily access what you need while cooking or entertaining? Your kitchen may not be set up ideally for you — time to consider a refresh when the layout is not working for your needs.


At some point a kitchen not only looks dated, but because of its age it does not function optimally. Think cupboards that don’t open and close effectively, appliances that have issues, lighting that is dim and dated in appearance. All these aspects may indicate that a renovation would be a wise choice aesthetically and functionally.


A well-done kitchen renovation will add value to your home if you sell AND add value to your everyday life as long as you live there. Think about it, you are in your kitchen every day, that alone means there’s a lot of value to you personally in investing in a renovation.

Even if you’re keeping the same square footage, a renovation can add more space! Through improved cabinetry, better appliances, and careful planning, you will find you have much more room.


Kids leaving home? Parent moving in? If you’re experiencing a life change your house may need to change too, and that includes your kitchen.


There have been countless improvements and innovations in kitchen technology from appliances to lighting to cabinetry.

LED lights mean no more replacing lightbulbs plus energy efficiency.

5 Star Energy Rated Appliances also mean more energy efficiency.

Taps with water flow technology mean less water can be used.

Cupboards with soft close hinges and durable HDF materials will look amazing and last for longer than ever in a kitchen.


Kitchen Cabinetry which was once extremely cost prohibitive is now mass manufactured and made of a variety of materials that brings the cost down significantly while maintaining a high end look and functionality.

When you work with an experienced kitchen renovation company your costs will be further minimized because they are able to buy in bulk, know how to customize stock cabinetry for any space and have access to surplus materials on hand which will save time and money on a renovation project.

Overall there are lots of reasons why remodeling a kitchen is something to consider. If you need assistance our team at Today’s Designer Kitchens would be happy to answer your questions or even come to your home for a free in home consultation and quote.

Hardwood Floors in the Kitchen – The Right Choice for You?

Todays Designer Kitchens fog_grey_view_2-1024x638 Hardwood Floors in the Kitchen - The Right Choice for You?
A Fog Grey Kitchen with Hardwood Floors/Today’s Designer Kitchens

If you are renovating a kitchen, you may be considering the popular choice of hardwood floors, but are they right for you?

Hardwood flooring has become increasingly a popular choice in a kitchen remodel and creates a gorgeous look but there are some key considerations before choosing it over other flooring products so let’s explore.

The Pros of Hardwood:

-looks great

-can be refinished

-increases home value

-softer, warmer than tile

-can be reasonably priced

-can usually be installed quicker than traditional flooring like tiles

The Cons of Hardwood:

-susceptible to water damage, scratches, dents

-higher maintenance

-hard for DIYers to install

-can be expensive

Not all Hardwoods are Created Equal

If you have decided to install hardwood, note that oak, maple, and cherry, are the most durable. Softwoods, such as pine, will dent—even if treated with a penetrating finish.

Also, lighter colours will often be more forgiving than darker colours when it comes to dirt. Patterns in the wood also help naturally camoflauge daily use.

Tough Enough?

When treated right, hardwood floors last a lifetime. But beware of pets’ claws and high heels, never leave standing water, and consider window treatments to limit sunlight.

How to Clean:

Wipe up spills immediately. Sweep, dust, or vacuum regularly and occasionally wipe the surface with a damp mop or cloth. Avoid oil-based sprays, waxes, and polishes, as well as abrasive cleansers.

Good Alternatives

Luxury Vinyl Planks are one of our top products that we sell to our customers that want the look of a hardwood floor but need something that is water-moisture-mold-and mildew resistant, as well as impervious to stains and more cost effective.

Final Thoughts

Hardwood flooring is a good choice for your kitchen if you can afford it, are willing to be diligent about caring for it, and want the appeal of a natural flooring material.

It will be a less successful choice if you have a busy, messy family and are on a tight budget in which case an alternative like luxury vinyl may be worth considering.

Removing a wall is sometime the best solution in cases like these when there are no other options in the current layout to increase kitchen functionality.

You Want to Combine the Dining/Kitchen Space

Depending on your home’s layout, the dining and kitchen areas may naturally flow better with an open space and make day to day activities easier and more enjoyable.

You are OK with a More Involved Renovation Process

Removing a wall an be very gratifying in your kitchen renovation outcome , but keep in mind it will take more time to complete the job .  Issues like whether or not it is load bearing and also if it contains wiring, plumbing etc., in the wall you want to remove means professionals need to take time to ensure the perfect result.

You Would Love a Kitchen Island

An Off White Kitchen from Today’s Designer Kitchens

An island has become a wonderful family gathering place for eating and sharing time in the modern kitchen layout.  Sometimes the only way to gain enough space for this is to remove a wall.

You Have Considered How it May Affect Resale of Your Home

Open kitchens usually sell homes hands down.  However, every market is different.  If selling your home in the not too distant future is something you have thought about, make sure an open kitchen plan is something that is desirable in your neighbourhood.

A local realtor can definitely steer you in the right direction if you ask them!

Final Thoughts – A kitchen wall removal can be a great way to renovate your kitchen and give you lots of added features, but it is not necessary or desirable for every project.
