If you’re creating the kitchen of your dreams, designer Nate Berkus has some key advice for you: “Choose what feels timeless. Think in terms of what you’ll love forever, not just in this moment.” As artistic advisor to LG Studio, Berkus inspired a new line of LG Studio appliances with pro-style features like hefty metal knobs and flat doors—for a suite that’s both well designed and hardworking. Below, four design ideas to elevate your next renovation.
1. APPROACH YOUR REMODEL WITH A LESS-IS-MORE AESTHETIC
Nate suggests matching the clean lines of your appliances with classic touches, like white subway tile and black lacquer cabinets. “Simple and elegant is always best in this space,” he says.
2. PAY ATTENTION TO THE DETAIL ON APPLIANCES
Every detail matters, that’s why we wrapped the water dispenser in the same stainless steel as the rest of the fridge for seamless pro-style. “Details make every space feel important,” Berkus says. “That goes for the kitchen, too.”
3. IMBUE A SENSE OF HISTORY
To give your kitchen classic style, Berkus suggests vintage wood flooring or an island that features antique brass details. “Both are forever choices that you’ll never tire of,” he says.
4. FILL THE SPACE WITH A FOREVER GLOW
“Lighting is especially important in the kitchen,” he says. Consider a mix of under-cabinet and hanging pendants to offset the elegance of your finished design.
