Is Online Inspiration Realistic?

Finding inspiration for your new kitchen or bathroom isn’t what it used to be. In the days before the Internet, finding inspiration meant flipping through piles of bulky interior decorating magazines and dog-earring pages for future reference. Today, many potential clients come to us with Smartphones and bookmarked web pages to describe their ideal space.
But just because it is easier to find inspiration, doesn’t always mean it is possible or easy to recreate. Websites like Houzz and Pinterest are filled with photos of over-the-top kitchens featuring soaring ceilings and grand islands. In reality, ceiling heights and room sizes are typically much smaller.
The designers at Milestone Millwork are big fans of digital inspiration but advise homeowners to consider the space they are working with before dreaming big.
And design elements aren’t the only thing to consider. There are tons of cool technology available for kitchens and bathrooms. Drawers with built-in USB chargers and pull-out hair straighteners are great ideas but may go against Ontario’s electrical code.
Speaking of inspiration, our showroom in Niagara Falls is the perfect place to gather ideas. We have several full kitchen displays filled with countertop, cabinetry, hardware and style choices to help you plan your project. And our designers are always available to answer any of your questions.
If you’re too busy to stop in, you can take a fully immersive 3D tour of our showroom from the comfort of home. Grab a cup of your favourite coffee and click here to take the tour.
