Darling Homes in Dallas and Houston are built with quality, comfort and innovative design in mind. A signature feature of Darling Homes is the incredible workspace in the gourmet kitchens, set up to be the ideal space for cooking at home.
Starting with a distinctively designed work triangle, with the fridge, sink and cooktop set up so that everything is within reach from preparation, to cooking and cleaning.
This work triangle is the basis of every Darling Homes kitchen space. Kitchen designs also include islands and an abundant amount of cabinets and counter space for storage, cooking and living. Sizeable pantries, located near the essential work triangle, offer ample storage space for food and essential kitchen supplies.
When it comes to creating the perfect kitchen, Darling Homes starts with functionality and adds incredible products and finishes, from the faucets to the backsplashes and lighting that create timeless and sophisticated spaces.
Lee Crowder, Design Gallery and Model Home Branding Manager for Darling Homes, shared some insight into how the homebuilder chooses materials that make a kitchen simultaneously timeless and trendy. When it comes to the cabinets, counters and backsplash, Crowder noted there are a few color combinations that always work well together.
“Pairing a stained cabinet with a light granite and offsetting dark cabinets with lighter countertops and backsplashes always works well,” Crowder said. Stained cabinets and painted cabinets in white or grey tones are popular and create classic kitchen designs.
Quartz countertops are beautiful and easy to clean and pair well with a lot of cabinets and backsplashes, according to Crowder. Making the island a statement piece by changing up the color can be a great way to personalize your kitchen area.
“The kitchen is a place where you can diverge in design from the rest of the house by mixing up metals in things like light fixtures and faucets,” Crowder said.
For a backsplash, which can bring out personality in design, Crowder recommends tiles in large rectangular, herringbone or even patterned designs.
The kitchen is at the heart of every Darling home, open to living areas and transitional spaces. Finding the right design elements for your Darling Homes kitchen can make a big difference when personalizing your dream home.
