Do you ever wonder if the owner of the "Perfect" Kitchen loves it? Is this a masterpiece because it has all of the necessary elements, ie: elegant and high end Stainless Steel appliances, perfect balance materials, colours and textures? According to Alex at the Blog, "Rethink the Sink", you should think otherwise. They provide vivid examples to help convey the sentiments and reach the same conclusion.
In the post, Rejecting the perfect kitchen, Yes You Can!, the author brilliantly points out that settling for the perfect kitchen can be dull and boring. Break the Mold!. Include an element of surprise in your kitchen design using things in non traditional ways, such as a certain material, an unusual color or an appliance or fixture.
