Even though it isn’t the place where all your house members or guests would spend the whole day, having a well-designed and beautiful kitchen is still among the most important part of any house. Having a beautiful kitchen can be expensive or affordable, depending on how you go about it. Creating a beautiful kitchen isn’t just about the paints- it’s the little things which count and make it the beautiful place that you’d like it to be. Read on to know which of the seemingly simple elements can make the most difference as you set out to redecorate and design your kitchen.
Lighting in the kitchen
Often overlooked, having the right kind of lighting in the kitchen, or any room for that matter, is among the most important design elements. Avoid cluttered and dark cupboards by adding lights which turn on when its doors are opened. Along with this lighting, get glass shelves so light can spread down all the way in order to light up the cupboard throughout. Add lights to the bottoms of your wall mounted cupboards or behind the work space to light it up, and on the island and dining areas, you can use decorative lighting as well as pendants.
Choosing the right cabinets
You are going to end up spending a lot of time trying to find stuff if you do not have well designed and maintained cabinets. The first thing to decide before buying them is if you want to go in for custom or stock cabinets. If you go in for custom cabinets, then you may end up spending a little more than usual, but with stock cabinets, not only will everything be in your budget, but you’ll also get them earlier than custom made ones. But if greater design flexibility is what you are looking for, then custom cabinets may be what you need.
Add some color
If you’re kitchen has a black and white foundation, then it’s time to infuse it with some color. The right mix and complement of colors will not only make it look better, but also helps the room look bigger than it is. Mix and match different colors on your tiles and cabinets to give your kitchen a lively feel and mix up with the right lighting for a surprise twist!
This is just the starting in making your ‘dream kitchen’. While your living room may be where the social activities take place, it is often said that the best parties take place in the kitchen- and when you have a truly beautiful one, why shouldn’t they?
