Design of the Day- Modernized Kitchen


This Space really captured my attention today.  Mixing and matching colours for your kitchen creates a very modern look. Contrast of the white upper cabinets, dark grey with soft blue island, white countertops finished beautifully.  Adding the glass on the raised bar top contributes to the fresh light look of this space and does not take up a lot of visual weight.  Combining the blue with the orange is very complimentary as they are opposite colours on the colour wheel. The orange however isn’t to overpowering, yet a bold carrot shade that adds a punch of colour to the room.  Kitchens are spaces in a home where a lot of time is spent, cooking and entertaining.  Making it a space that is inviting and people want to be in is important, which this designer has absolutely accomplished.

The numerous mixture of textures formulate the harmony of the room.  Pairing the white lacquered cabinets with grey textured woods, the light panelled wooden floors, the unique round accent carpet and the incredible light fixture.  All of these items were selectively picked to allow your eye to flow freely throughout the room.  Without holding too much visual attention on one particular part.

What are your thoughts on the look? Do you like it? Or would you make some Changes? Comment below and let us know.

A Little Introduction..

Hello Everyone,

We just wanted to take a minute and introduce ourselves as a company. We hope that you can take the time to get to know us a little better.

Over 25 years ago Manuel Ribeiro decided to build his own home in Cambridge.  Many family and friends were impressed with the quality of workmanship that he had put into his home. Knowing that he could build homes with the same quality and workmanship that he had put into his own home, he started the process to start his own building company.

In 1988 he started the company that is now known today as Sunlight Heritage Homes.  He brought with him over 15 years of new home construction experience and believes that constant attention to detail will bring you peace of mind in your new home.  Sunlight Heritage Homes believes that being a family run business enables us to monitor and manage every aspect and process of your new home. Keeping the building of new homes in the family allows us to maintain a low overhead so the homes can be built at the best possible prices, without compromising the quality and building materials we use giving new home owners more quality for their money is important to us.

By having a hands on approach, we are able to insure that every aspect of your home is built as if it were our own, working closely with our staff and trades people. All are hands on both on the building sites and in the office.  We only use highly skilled craftsmen that exceed the highest building standards. We believe by using quality trades people, suppliers and dealing directly with our staff you are going to have a home built the way you want.  We sincerely believe that you as a satisfied home owner will be one of our greatest assets and it will be our privilege to serve you.

Today the company is run by one of Manuel’s sons, Wilson Ribeiro who i can guarantee you will be involved in every step of building your new home.  He takes customer service seriously and doesn’t want anything more than a happy homeowner at the end.  We are here to help you in any way we can through the building process of your new home and look forward to meeting you.
