Kitchen Styles/Designs – LaGrange, Hinsdale, Western Springs, Carol Stream, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton & MORE

We all have kitchens…but, we don’t all have the same tastes. This is why homes have such different kitchen styles and designs. Your kitchen is an essential part of your home, if not the most important room of the house, actually. You cook and bake great meals and yummy treats for your family in the kitchen. You probably host little get togethers in there as well and I’m sure you have enjoyed a cup of tea, coffee or hot cocoa while conversing with a loved one. Regardless of what you do in your kitchen, it’s important that it’s not only useful but that you enjoy being in the room and with the design of it.

Traditional vs. Modern – typically the main difference in kitchens today. What is your choice?

Traditional kitchens usually have a lot of wood finishes, lots of classic patterns, pale/muted colors, floral (most of the time), and always has a “homey” feeling to it. Traditional kitchens are often referred to as “cute” in design and comfortable, of course!

Modern kitchens are a bit different. They have smart appliances, are usually very geometric in design, lack so many wood finishes, a lot of cabinet space to hide appliances, utensils, glasses, etc., and has a very tidy and sleek look to it. Modern kitchens are often referred to as “stylish” and “sophisticated.”

Now, just because you like one style more than the other does not necessarily mean that you have to only have aspects from one. It’s YOUR kitchen, do what you want with it! The important thing to always remember is regardless of what your tastes are compared to what is “popular” or “trendy,” it’s your kitchen and should be a reflection of what your personality is!

Spring is around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time to start planning your remodel/redesign projects! Let DeSitter help you! Call or Visit one of our showrooms today to start making your dream room a reality!

Tile & Natural Stone – Finishes/Types – LaGrange, Hinsdale, Western Springs, Lisle & MORE

During our New Year Sale & Inventory Clearance Event, we have a ton of tile we are offering at amazing deals, so we thought we would take the time to explain what types of tile finishes there are.

The most common types of finishes for tile and stone are:
• Acid-washed – shiny with small etched marks. marble and limestone are common acid-washed products
• Flamed – rough, unrefined texture. granite is a common type
• Honed – also called flat, matte or satin finished. very soft look
• Polished – has a glossy shine finish

• Saw-cut refined – similar to matte but not completely honed
• Split-face – rough texture but not as rough as flamed. Slate is commonly done this way
• Tumbled – smooth surface with broken or rounded edges
• Brushed – by brushing the tile, you develop a worn-down look to it

Most common types of tile and natural stone are:
• Granite – igneous stone, very hard and dense, scratch resistant, hundreds of varieties
• Limestone – sedimentary stone, formed by calcite and sediment
• Marble – a type of limestone, metamorphic stone that is usually polished, very easily scratched
• Sandstone – sedimentary stone, rough in texture because of the loose grains of sand
• Slate – metamorphic stone that comes in sheets, composed of quartz and clay
• Manufactured Stone – synthetic stone made from natural stone, very strong, not likely to crack or chip
• Travertine – partially metamorphosed and crystallized limestone that can be honed and filled, similar to marble

• Ceramic Tile – made from clay and has been hardened by heating it, often shiny
• Porcelain Tile – type of ceramic tile that has had more heat applied to it making it more dense with less water absorption

**In case you don’t remember, igneous means it has been formed by the cooling and hardening of molten rock. Sedimentary means it’s been formed by the deposition of material over time. Metamorphic means it’s been formed when other rocks break down from heat and pressure.
