Kitchen #1 from E-Interiors was the winner! Read on to see how we approached this inspiration room and find tips on how to get this look in your home. The trick to decorating using inspiration photos isn't to copy the design exactly. Instead, the key to using inspiration photos is to incorporate some of the details from the inspiration that will complement your home.

Dream Home Kitchen

Kitchens are one of the most expensive room makeovers for a home so if you are going to do one, make sure you do it right and have a plan. If you love this winning kitchen, use it as inspiration when choosing materials and finishes. Below is a mood board with finishes and products that will help achieve this look. Maybe you love everything about this kitchen except the gold finishes...just switch it out! The best part of using inspiration photos is that you don't copy the inspiration, you pick and choose what you love and then see what works for your home.

Once you decide what you want in your home, shop around. Most people are drawn to the most expensive options they find and, luckily, the chances are high of finding a similar option for less money since there are so many shopping resources available these days. So even if you are doing a low budget kitchen makeover, make sure to find inspiration, decide on what you want and have a plan to get the best results!

Dream Home Kitchen Splurge vs Save


Since this design is very bright with clean lines, the stools and accessories play a huge role in the overall feel of the room. Wicker stools are great options to create a beautiful, warm contrast against the other colors and elements in the room. Take a look at some of our favorites:
