One of the most important rooms in the home, the kitchen can often feel like an unwieldy beast that will be stuck how it is forever. However, minor tweaks that you can make to your kitchen aesthetic can breathe new life into your kitchen space no matter how big or small. This article will run you through just some of the things that you can do to make that kitchen beautiful.
One of the simplest ways to brighten up your kitchen and dining area is through kitchen table covers. These humblest of gadgets come in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes meaning that no matter what kind of table you have, they can be hidden away under a chic cover. This can be a great way to provide an eye-catching contrast in the kitchen or to help your eyesore of a table blend into the kitchen without having the trouble of refurbishing it.
Something that can be often missed by even the most astute kitchen decorator is the amount of free space you have on the walls. This can sometimes promote a clean and clear look, but other times can just look sparse. This idea also helps if your walls aren’t the cleanest finish. For example, if you have bought an older home that doesn’t adhere to the strict planning that new builds go through today. Adding bespoke shelving for wine glasses or condiments can bring a kitchen together and can even be made at home.
Changing Kitchen Handles
This is a simple way to renew your cupboards and worktops. Often you can clean and paint your worktops and cupboards to give them a new lease of life where your handles may let you down. Simply replace these with something much fresher and cleaner. You do not need to change the entire door. Currently, brass and copper handles are very popular with darker-colored cupboards whereas leather handles are popular with lighter colors.
You can do all you want to the surrounding appliances and walls but something that will stand out if you leave it to fall into disrepair is the floor. Again, this can sound like a daunting prospect but in modern DIY, flooring can be relatively easy to change. Rather than having to rip up old flooring, you can place new stuff on top of the old. Flooring such as vinyl tiles and laminate wood flooring mostly click into place and can run up to your plinths rather than the wall to save money.
This can be a more costly solution but requires little effort on your part. Picking a statement appliance like a brightly colored fridge or cooker and add that little bit of color into the room. It will catch the eye of your guests and draw attention away from the minor aesthetic marks elsewhere. You just need to pick which appliance and color.
