No one wants to build a kitchen so “of the moment” that it looks dated within a few short years. You want to love your new kitchen for many years to come. Our expert designers offer their insight into kitchen trends to avoid so that you design a kitchen that ages gracefully.
You look around your kitchen, and all you see are needed improvements.

If you’ve got the space, and the stuff to fill it, a walk-in pantry is a nice luxury to include in the remodel of your Portland kitchen. But there are lots of other pantry design ideas that can make your kitchen work smoothly. Here are 14 designs to consider:
We’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about the various elements that go into a kitchen remodel. Below we’ve put together a guide to kitchen remodeling in Portland.
You live in Portland, Oregon, a beautiful city in a beautiful setting. Your home already incorporates features that bring the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest inside, but now you’re thinking about building an outdoor kitchen that would allow you to enjoy the out of doors in Portland year-round.
The perfect design of the dining space in your Portland, Oregon, home depends on your lifestyle. Think about how your family gathers for meals — or doesn’t. Do you usually catch meals on the run, and that’s OK? Or do you feel it’s important to have a time — and a place — set aside for eating together? Do you often have visitors over for meals? These considerations and more should go into your final design of the perfect dining space for your home as you plan a remodel or custom home build.
Sometimes you want a little more space in your home, but you don’t want to go through the cost and complication of a full addition. In this case, a bump out is a great idea, especially in the kitchen. A bump out extends one wall of the home for a specific length, usually just enough for one room. It’s easier because it doesn’t usually require you to rebuild or extend your foundation. Bump outs can be perfect for rooms that typically have limited space, particularly in older homes. These five ideas can help you re-imagine your kitchen in a completely new way.
Sometimes a house needs to be more than it is. In that case, a whole house remodel might be the best choice. The original layout of this Portland home was boxy.
