Today, we’re looking at what you can do to turn your kitchen into a place that looks fresh and inviting.
1. Rugs Can and Chandeliers can Work in the Kitchen
Many people use area rugs in their homes but when it comes to the kitchen, they neglect to add a rug. Consider using an eclectic textured rug to add a bit of playfulness and character to your kitchen. Rugs are good at making a space feel more welcoming and warm. Look for a rug that’s durable and easy to clean because it will likely get spilled on quite a bit. Another idea is to place a rug beneath your kitchen or dining room table. Make sure it complements your cabinets and flooring.
Chandeliers are often found in dining rooms, but they also can work well in the kitchen. It’s best to look at chandeliers that are made of glass or some other type of material that’s easy to clean because the kitchen will give off odors and smoke that could fade or leave marks on the wrong material.
Choosing the right chandelier is critical–there is such as thing as too big. You don’t want it to overwhelm the room. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that your chandelier “floats” well above people’s heads to giving walking space and to have at least four feet of distance from the walls so guests don’t feel closed in.
2. Add a Bit of Vintage
Adding some throwback touches to a modern kitchen can create a mood that brings new energy into the space. For instance, using a vintage stove in the midst of more contemporary kitchen furnishings and decor creates a nice juxtaposition. The stove makes the kitchen more interesting and memorable. As an experienced kitchen remodeler, we can help you by suggesting small touches like this to make your remodel even better.
3. Try a Contrasting Backsplash
Sometimes simplicity is the best way to make a space more beautiful. That’s why clean lines and colors are visually pleasing. However, adding a small dynamic element can make a simple design look even better. Using a contrasting backsplash is one of the best ways to do this; it can create a focal point in your kitchen.
4. Consider Using Colorful Cabinets
Cabinets with bright hues are a sure way to grab attention. Painted cabinets have become very popular but sometimes having the whole kitchen painted is a little too much. Consider using color on only half of the kitchen cabinets. The color scheme you choose should complement the walls and flooring of the kitchen.
