I learned at the 2014 International Builders Show (IBS) that De Young’s current standard offerings already include many of the important design trends of today. We are a kitchen-centric society so kitchens are more important than ever. This is why you will find in every De Young home a quality, gourmet kitchen designed with great attention to detail.
In fact, the cabinet details alone that you find in a De Young kitchen and throughout a De Young home are amazing. Design features to add richness to the cabinet finish like extra-large crown molding, extended 36” height upper cabinets for extra shelf storage, 5-piece drawer fronts with knobs, decorative refrigerator accent, varied heights and depths to add visual interest, and angled corner cabinets for sheer beauty. All of this, plus over 60 selections of cabinet finishes and styles available in the De Young Design Studio so customers can select what fits their unique taste and lifestyle.
At IBS, it was stressed that multi-zone areas are great ways to fully utilize the space in your kitchen. And of course, De Young kitchens are designed to include multi-zones, such as a baking center, built-in recycle center, storage pantry plus prep and clean-up zones.
The size of kitchens is growing in America. The kitchen size is becoming one of the key decision elements when selecting a new home. More space that is better integrated with other entertaining areas is in high demand. People want extra-large kitchen islands because cooking is a party today! You will always find expansive kitchen islands at De Young for you and your friends to enjoy, after all, you can never have too much counter space. In addition, you’ll find De Young includes innovative and dependable General Electric stainless steel appliances for the serious chef in your family to enjoy.
Besides meeting Michael Jackson and the Blues Brothers impersonators, I witnessed much more at IBS in Las Vegas. I will definitely share additional insightful ideas with you in the future so stay tuned! And in the meanwhile, visit a De Young Welcome Center to be amazed by the display of today’s important design trends to help you personalize a home that will fit your unique lifestyle!
