Kitchens are no longer seen as gloomy spaces where only cooking is done.
Today kitchens serve as an area for family get togethers, talks, and a lively place to congregate at gatherings.
Now the big question is, how do we make our kitchens homely and still keep it fashionable?
Allow in more natural light
The perfect way to brighten up the look of your kitchen is to allow in more light. It’s well known that kitchens should have enough windows and extractor fans to let out heat and smoke while cooking, but windows also act as a natural light source therefore improving the brightness of the kitchen. Cooks also appreciate the natural light. so that they can see how their master piece will look when presented to family and friends.
Add bright colours
The goal is to give your kitchen a colourful look, so don’t be afraid to play around with colours. The vibe of any kitchen can easily be transformed by merely changing the wallpaper or wall colour. Also, you can make use of coloured glass splashbacks to add that splash of colour to behind your sink, cooker or placed on your walls instead of tiles in your kitchen. The choice of bright and strong colours, plus printed designs means you can easily make changes with very little disruption to the kitchen.
Add furniture in the kitchen
Unnecessary? No! If you have enough room in your kitchen, then by adding table and chairs you creat a new space in your home to eat, a communal area to chatch up over a cup of tea and another chance to add colour. Not all table and chairs have to be white or plain wood. Paint the table and chairs bright colours or easier still you can add a bright table cloth and seat cushions. Colour adds character to a kitchen and helps it feel more welcoming.
Modify the design of the kitchen
Many kitchens contain cupboards that have seen better days. Wood or gloss cupboards can look rather worn out over time. The good news is that the majority of these kitchen cupboards and doors can be revamped with little cost using paint or wraping them in vinyl. This can totally transform the look of your kitchen.
Storage is important in kitchens especially when the size of the kitchen is rather small. Making use of lightweight foldable table and chairs are a practical addition when looking to save space. You can then hopefully have more room to store your kitchen items and move around. Great ways to add valuable storage space would be to add a trolly, shelving, and food baskets/containers, as they can fit into areas that a cupboard wont necessarily be able to fit – you can never have enough storage space!
