4 Elements Every Well-Designed Kitchen Needs

Fall has just begun, but before you know it, we’ll be heading into the holiday season. Is your kitchen ready for all the festive dinner parties and holiday get-togethers you’ll throw?

No matter how well you furnish your dining or living room, guests still tend to gather in the kitchen. Get a jump on designing your perfect kitchen with a little help from the Dallas Design District.


Sometimes the smallest changes make a huge difference. You may not need a different color scheme or all-new cabinetry to give your kitchen a makeover. Simply replacing outdated drawer pulls and cabinet knobs might be all you need to get an updated look. Try it — you’d be surprised at the impact these tiny details make! The showroom at the German Kitchen Center is a great place to see how fine details contribute to the look of a room.


The right lighting is important in any room of your home, but in your kitchen, it’s crucial. It’s hard to cook in a kitchen that’s too dark — not to mention you risk missing crumbs and spills, which can make this space unsanitary. But you also don’t want harsh, overhead fluorescents straining your and your guests’ eyes.

Instead, consider installing soft overhead lighting in addition to more direct lighting in food-prep areas like the kitchen island. Swing by the showroom at Expressions Home Gallery for some lighting inspiration.


A good backsplash does more than just protect your walls from spills and splatters. A knockout backsplash can transform the look of the entire room. There’s a huge variety of different backsplash materials and design ideas to choose from, from tile to glass and even metal or stone. Check out the collection from Waterworks to get some fresh ideas for your new backsplash.


If you’re still working with the decades-old dishwasher and fridge you brought with you when you moved into your home, it’s time to start fresh. Aside from the money you’ll save by upgrading to more energy-efficient models, you'll feel like you're walking into a new room once you’ve got an attractive, modern set of matching appliances. You’ll also have peace of mind knowing there’s enough space for all that holiday party food. When you’re ready, the team at The Kitchen Source can help you pick exactly what you need.

Creating a well-designed kitchen doesn’t have to be a huge ordeal. From changing a few small touches to upgrading your appliances, you can find exactly what you need at the shops and showrooms at the Dallas Design District.
