Is your kitchen in need of a little spicing up? There a settle things you can do to transform your kitchen without completely remodeling it. Such as personalizing the space above the cabinets, adding wall decor, curtains and pops of color. Just like any room in the house the kitchen should have a theme as well. There are a few important things that help define the kitchens theme such as decorating, linens, dinnerware, and your own personal taste.
Decorating above your cabinets:
Decorating above your cabinets can transform your kitchens look. This is the place to best show your kitchens theme. Find a focal piece, something that’s large and makes a statement, such as a large decorative plate or clock. Keep the arrangement symmetrical by starting on the outside and working your way in. By doing this it will help keep the design balanced and flow nicely. Next add other decor pieces that show your personality such as candles, vases, and bottles. Try to keep the same color family or colors that complement each other. For example if your using orange vases, then a few pieces of red pottery would be a beautiful together. And Finally fill in the empty spaces with foliage or flowers.
Linens and Towels:
Find the right colors that go with your other decor. If you used red, yellow, and green in your decor above the cabinets then try to incorporate these colors in your linens and towels as well. Keeping the colors the same will help the kitchen look pulled together and unified. If you used busy, elaborate decor above the cabinets then look for linens and towels in solid colors or with minimal design. If the decor above you cabinets was all one color family or had minimal design then make a statement with your linens and towels. For example if the big plate you chose as your focal point was just a beautiful bronze color with no details on it and all the other accents where basic yellows and reds then you could do something more elaborate with your linens.
Dinnerware and Flatware:
You have two options with it comes to dinnerware, buy to go with ANY theme or buy to go with your theme. When it comes to dinnerware and flatware you may want to invest in something that could go with any theme, such as basic white. You can find basic white dinnerware that still has personality and unique traits. If you choose to change your kitchens theme after a few years then you may not want to have to buy all new dinnerware again so buying a basic white now will help save you money down the road. However, you may be confident in your kitchen theme and never want to change it or you may choose to buy new dinnerware every time you change your kitchen up and that’s ok too. Dinnerware can be fun, show your style and complete the kitchens look.
Adding your personality:
Add your own style and personality to your kitchen with other kitchen accessories and tools. It is important to add fun, cute things to your kitchen. For example no one enjoys doing the dishes but if they had a flower dish scrubber then it maybe a little less painless and besides it adds a playful touch to your kitchen. The best secret to adding color to your kitchen though is to use natural colors such as your red apples, green avocado and bright yellow bananas. Now if put all your fruit and veggies in a beautiful basket or bowl then it automatically brightens up your kitchen and gives it some color.
