Dash of Color
The color of your kitchen walls and storage cabinets will be the difference between a dull and monotonous space and a bright and inviting one. The right color palette can allow you to add pizzazz to your kitchen décor and give it an instant facelift.
Take help from the color wheel and choose three complementary or analogous colors. Whether you go bold or minimal will depend on your kitchen decor theme, but make sure that the lightest colors engulf 70% of the surface area, and the boldest color dresses 10% of the space.
Also, remember walls aren’t the only place you can splash colors. Cabinets, countertops, floorings and accessories also count.
Pinch of elegant fixtures
Fixtures demand functionality and personality. The key to getting it right is to think ahead and put function first. It’s not like the most practical fittings, and fixtures aren’t good looking.
Your cooktops, sinks, microwave and dishwasher are the biggest fixtures so choose them according to your kitchen layout and space to ensure that they fit comfortably in the allocated space. Be sure to install appropriate power sources for the appliance as well.
Spoonful of Bright Lighting
Lighting plays an important role when you are renovating or building a new kitchen altogether. To ensure that the entire space is properly illuminated and every design element is highlighted, you will need to get the lighting right.
Surface-mount fixtures that are installed on a grid, attached to the ceiling, work best for the kitchen. It helps disperse more even lighting and creates an overall beautifully lightened space.
Heaps of Storage
Storage is a necessity in every kitchen. Find the perfect cabinets, and you can turn that need into an opportunity to inject style and character to the décor. Try to use every nook and cranny to have enough space for all the utilities and appliances. It will not only make the cooking process much more efficient by enhancing organization but will also create a pleasant looking space.
Now that you’ve got the basics right, it’s time to add the final finishing touches. A piece of kitchen art or some interesting accessories can add drama to the room and be an instant conversation-starter. It will be a reflection of your personal style and make the space much more inviting. You can find plenty of kitchen decor items online or in stores, that are quirky as well as tasteful.
