Is your kitchen in need of a make over but you don’t want to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars renovating the whole thing. Then use this simple guide to make your kitchen go from drab to fab without having to break the bank.
Make it a bit more personal
As they say the kitchen is the heart of the home so bring it to life by adding in pictures of the family. This adds such a nice homely touch without having to spend a fortune on decorating. Find some nice stylish photo frames and then pick your favourite family portraits to add in. Hang them on the walls and voila you have instantly added some more spark. Wholesaleposterframes.com have great printing options, so you’ll be able to totally customize your kitchen exactly how you want it.
Sticking to just white or neutrals can make an older kitchen look very dull and dated. By adding in just a bit of colour, it will brighten the whole thing up. It doesn’t need to be bright colours everywhere just a splash here and there does the trick. Perhaps add in a coloured feature wall, a piece of bright furniture or some bright art.
Add flowers or herbs to make it feel fresh
Speaking of colour nothing makes a kitchen feel more fresh then bringing a bit of the garden inside. Bring beautiful colours into the room by adding fresh cut flowers to your kitchen table or create a little herb garden for your window frame. Having fresh potted herbs not only looks great but can add great flavours to your cooking too.
Make your fridge stand out with some funky magnets
This is such a small thing you can do that can make a big difference to the overall room and is a great way to show your personality. Perhaps add all your travel magnets you have collected over the years or pick a particular theme that represents you and your family.
There are so many cool things out there you can use to accesorise your kitchen. You can find accessories that also serve a purpose so aren’t just for decoration. You could add some old vintage cake tins that serve as food storage containers or perhaps some beautiful textured linens for your tea towels. My personal favourite is adding in a bookshelf with all my beautiful cookbooks that are used on a regular basis.
