• 3-For-1 Design Advice: How To Create A Welcoming Kitchen

    The kitchen is the heart of the home. So even if you’re not up for investing in a major overhaul, it’s still a key place to keep warm, inviting, and fun to be in. And yes! That’s possible on a budget.


    We asked Nate, Sasha, and Lauren to share their best budget-friendly tips for updating your kitchen. No renovation required.


    NATE SAYS: Think outside the kitchen aisle
    “Consider what you’re storing your things in. Can you put your coffee maker and accessories together on a tray? Your cooking utensils in wood vases? Or bring in some beautiful lighting that plays off the design of your kitchen. We just put a pair of black marble lamps on our black marble countertops and it looks incredible. Just make sure any lamps are kept away from water sources!”

  • "I definitely do not like a lot of extra stuff on my kitchen countertops, but fresh herbs, plants, or flowers go a long way towards making a kitchen feel warm and inviting." –Sasha
  • "Nothing is more welcoming than a kitchen that smells like your favorite meal! Cooking a delicious dinner while my husband and daughter play in the kitchen is the most cherished part of the day for me." –Lauren
