Spooky Season

BOO!!! Ghouls and goblins are on your walls and windows getting ready for trick-or-treaters. Loading up on candy and Halloween decorations to put around the house has been the fun for the last couple weeks. Some may not have done it yet and that’s okay, we still have another two weeks before the fun filled day. Do you have any plans? Pumpkin patches, hayrides, or maybe even the warm cider and a corn maze. Some may just be spending the day at home with family watching Halloween movies and carving pumpkins. Some may have a tradition they like doing every year. My wife and I get the pumpkin pizza from Papa Murphy’s and watch scary movies, our own little cute tradition. With Halloween comes the end of the year. Fall and winter keep us indoors. With being inside you’ll want to be happy with your space, so maybe that kitchen remodel is calling your name. To make those yummy Halloween themed meals for the kids, Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas, you’ll need more space in the kitchen to accommodate everybody. We can help give you a whole new kitchen, all you have to do is call or email us so we can discuss scheduling that first consultation to go over the scope. If you have ideas, lets talk.  We are one call away at 425-224-2004.

Blueish green hue to this island really makes it pop in this white kitchen

Classic Remodeling NW Inc. had a new guy join our team. He is such a sweet and humble kid who is excited to learn new things in this industry. He works hard and we look forward to watching him grow and learn with us. With the end of the year in sight, next year’s schedule for projects are starting to fill up so now would be the time to start the process of planning and meeting with contractors. Holiday season homeowners normally want to hold off on construction as they don’t want people in their homes, which we totally understand. But we can always start the process now and hold off until you are ready once you sign, to start.  Just take that first step and pick up the phone. We offer complimentary consultations, so give us a call at 425-224-2004. We would love to hear about your remodeling ideas.

The 6 Hottest Colors To Use in Your Kitchen This Fall and Winter 

Holiday Season 

[realtor.com: Ana Durrani]

Adding color to a space can be transformative-especially if it’s somewhere you spend a lot of time, like the kitchen. As you get ready for another season of dinner parties and holiday celebrations, we thought it the perfect time to revamp the color scheme in your cook space.

So after scouting out the newest color trends (and getting the insider info from top designers), we’re here to bring you, hands-down, the six hottest colors for kitchens right now-plus all the info you need to incorporate these amazing hues into your home.

Cedar Mill by Prat & Lambert

Cedar Mill evokes images of a crisp, cool forest-and while it’s perfect for autumn, it’s also an ideal muted green to enhance the natural light and beauty of your kitchen year-round.

“This is one of my favorite choices among trending colors,” says designer Marco Bizzley, of House Grail. “Basically, it’s an olive green color with a muted gray tone.”

Pelt by Farrow & Ball

Looking to get a little darker in your home’s hub this season? Then you’re going to love the idea of adding some plum accents-on the walls, cabinets, or even the ceiling-for a more dramatic look.

“This warm purple shade is homely yet sophisticated and feels perfect for the fall season,” says Anton Giuroiu, CEO of Architecture Lab. “Whether your kitchen fixtures are white or natural wood, they will look stunning against a backdrop of freshly painted plum walls.”

Copper Pot by Sherwin Williams

If your pumpkin spice lattes are just barely scratching the surface of your needs this fall, then you might want to check out Copper Pot, which evokes a mouthwatering dessert for your kitchen walls.

“It’s one of my favorite accent colors that we’ve seen in fall-inspired kitchens,” says Shannon Serpette, editor of The Design Home. “While this rusty orange makes for a great focal point, it’s best paired with quieter colors, such as Sherwin Williams’ Malabar.”

Duck Green by Farrow & Ball

This deep hue evokes that feeling of a wild forest after rainfall-and is the perfect relaxed dark shade for a modern kitchen. 

“Hunter green complements creamy, neutral tones to perfection,” says Bizzley. “Even better, you won’t need to replace your neutral cabinets-just change the color of the walls.

“And if you want your kitchen to look super trendy, you can also mix this color with a pink,” he adds. “Because of the popularity of these two hues, they’ve become something of a fad in the field of interior design.”

Texas Rose by Benjamin Moore

The idea of painting your kitchen pink may seem preposterous, but just wait until you check out this elegantly soft shade of blush.

“Texas Rose is a deep, muted salmon-red color with a brick undertone,” says Bizzley. “For people wanting to bring amazing, pure color into their world, it’s the ideal choice. It can be used for walls, which can be perfectly accompanied by the cabinets in Happy Trail color.”

Stunning Saphier by Glidden

This trending fairy-tale blue is perfect for those looking to make a bold statement in their kitchens-one that will last long after the leaves fall.

“This trend toward using sapphire has come because of the desire for cooler, less crowded areas,” says Serpette. “Blue is known to be a calming color, and the depth of sapphire blue marries the concepts of open space, with a cozy and comfortable one. And blue is a contrasting color to orange, whish also makes them a very good pair.”
