Taniya Nayak talked to the Boston Globe about restaurant design trends, easy ways to upgrade your kitchen, and her role as the emcee of the upcoming Share Our Strength Taste of The Nation event. We've included an excerpt, but check out the full article on The Boston Globe.
Just like restaurateurs, homeowners are usually working within a budget when designing their kitchens. Nayak’s advice is to choose your battles and spend money strategically. “One area where you can really change the look of a kitchen is just adding a backsplash. You can potentially splurge because it is really minimal square footage,” says the designer. That will make the whole space feel more high-end.
She also recommends personalizing with accessories, like bold barstools on the kitchen island that can act as a focal point, no renovation required. “You can keep it nice and simple and add little pops of color.”
