Adding art to your space helps you personalize it. This can make cooking and being in the kitchen a very special experience. Let artworks, illustrations and photographs impart freshness around your kitchen and keep reminding you of what a therapeutic joy the world of food really is.
Here are some super inventive and refreshing ways to spruce up your kitchen :
Change up the colour –
Colour is one of the fastest and most inexpensive ways to update a room. But great, colourful kitchens don’t happen by accident. The secret is in the three-colour palette:
- Colour 1: An existing kitchen colour that can’t be changed. This may be the colour of the countertop or cabinets.
- Colour 2: A neutral of your choice. Use it for the new wall colour that complements colour 1. It’ll serve as the kitchen backdrop.
- Colour 3: The colour that makes your kitchen unique. It’s often a bold and unexpected colour that works with your palette. Colour 3 adds pop to your kitchen. Use it as a statement piece for your accessories like bar stools, vases or cookware.
Tile isn’t just for the kitchen floor or the backsplash. Cover a wall with a graphic pattern or a tile mural for a vibrant display that’s practically a work of art. Bonus: It’s easy to clean.
Keep your schedule and grocery list organized and in sight by painting an accent wall with chalkboard paint. The family-friendly surface can be done in basic black or in other colours to match an existing design scheme.
Open Shelves –
If you’ve updated your kitchen with fresh, fashion-forward colours and a focal wall, it’s time to add layers. The latest trend in kitchen design is open shelf, upper-cabinet-free kitchens. The look lightens a kitchen up by creating visual space but requires you to hide all the Tupperware and mismatched glasses in fewer cabinets.
