Reviving Your Kitchen Space
The kitchen is that place in the home where not only meals are prepared but precious moments are shared over cooking, baking, and exchanging recipes. A kitchen must be an enticing and uplifting place, because this is where all the action takes place. We spend many hours in our kitchens and this is also where we entertain our guests and gather together before and after meals. It’s the true heart of the home. Before redecorating or updating this space, consider your home lifestyle and what best suits your family. Get inspired to transform your kitchen space with these easy-to-follow and practical ideas.
Splash of Color
For an instant update, give your cabinets a fresh coat of paint. If your walls have neutral colors such as white, ivory or grey, choose a zesty color for a livelier look. If your walls are bright, darker hues would work for a quirky but solid style. If you’re looking for a major change, paint your entire kitchen walls with a neutral shade, allowing more options to use exciting accents for the cabinets.
Kitchen clutter is the last thing anyone wants to think about after a hearty meal. However, if you use the right storage, then cleaning up and organizing shouldn’t be so burdensome. Use every inch of space for smart, space-saving storage. If you’re short on cabinet space, consider hanging floating shelves to hold frequently used tools or display your favorite decorations and accessories. If you don’t have much cabinet space, bring in freestanding pieces to hold appliances, dishes, and other kitchen essentials.
Rug and Roll
Give your kitchen a cozy ambiance by accentuating it with rugs. Most people decorate with rugs more for the look and not for comfort so use a rug that’s not too heavy for cleaning purposes and one that can be rolled easily when you need to do a general cleaning.
Game of themes
If you’re not able to repaint or choose your cabinetry for your kitchen, you can work with a simple theme by accessorizing, accentuating, and spotlighting. This doesn’t necessarily need to cost you as you can recycle and reuse old decorations or even buy from thrift shops. You may start by putting up flowers or frames with cuisine photos in them and the rest will follow.
Remember to use colors and accessories that you won’t grow tired of because you will be spending most of your time at home in the kitchen. Your space should bring out your positive energy and encourage you to feel more relaxed yet pumped up to create your signature dishes.
