How to Make Your Kitchen Unique

In New York City, the pressure to be different transcends the bounds of one singular category of human life. The core want to be uniquely expressive can be found within the most personal and impersonal of spaces. With New Yorkers, the way one dresses, accessories, decorates, speaks and renovates all have an impact on their perceived personality. What a New Yorker expresses in street style should match what they express in home decor. This being said, New Yorkers are always following similar trends in their search for individuality, leading to large groups of people seeking uniqueness actually ending up being exactly the same.

While it may seem like conformity is inevitable for New Yorkers, it does not have to be. There are many ways in which New Yorkers can find their unique style while still being on trend and one of those ways is through home renovation. By creating a personalized at home space catered to the individuality of the person inhabiting it, New Yorkers can truly find what helps them stand out. 

Take your basic kitchen for example. According to a 2011 study recorded by Forbes, Americans spend an average of 2 hours and 8 minutes a day in the kitchen. That means Americans spend approximately 64 hours in their kitchen per month. By renovating the space and personalizing it to better fit a New Yorkers “personal brand”, the opportunity to find individuality is increased. 

New Yorkers can find their unique sense of kitchen style in many different ways! By adding colorful cabinets or dramatic lighting, a boring kitchen can be transformed into a beautiful and personal piece of individualistic art. Statement chairs, minimalist structures and bold tiling can easily turn a blasé kitchen into a reflection of bold ambition from a New Yorker who knows exactly who they are.

With Golden I Construction, every New Yorker has the opportunity to create the kitchen that says,“this is me!” Offering hundreds of unique appliances to choose from, Golden I Construction will make your boring, old kitchen one you truly deserve. Call us at 212-837-8117 for more information.
