Ways to improve the style of your kitchen

Ways to enhance the style of your kitchen

Is your kitchen old? Do you feel tired and look a little run down? Then you may be thinking of changing certain areas of it, you may have all the furniture and appliances you already need, so you don’t need to redesign your kitchen, but what you and your kitchen need is a little “redesign”.

One of the first things you might want to consider when remodeling your kitchen is to look at the paint, chances are paint is what covers the vast majority of your kitchen and if it’s feeling a little dated or getting a little dirty then that’s the perfect place to start!

If you have a smaller kitchen, you will surely agree with me when I say that light colors are the best to remedy that. Some of the most popular colors for smaller kitchens tend to be light blues, yellows, oranges, and pastel shades.

In the ancient forms of Feng Shui, yellows and oranges were based on Yang. Yellow, for example, is a color that transmits warmth, joy and kindness, emotions that are very particular to the kitchen, since it is generally considered the heart of the home.

Orange works similarly with feelings of purpose and creativity, Orange strengthens your concentration and is used in Feng Shui to give you a sense of purpose, useful feelings within a kitchen. You can certainly see now why they are popular choices for a kitchen.

Once the walls have been painted, you can look to the tiling, another area that could quite possibly take up a large part of your kitchen. Just like painting a room, changing the tiles can have a profound effect on the style of your kitchen, but it can be a big and expensive job. You really only need to replace your tiles if the ones you already have are worn out and really need changing. Another similarity that mosaics have with painting is that you have to take into account what type of mosaic you choose, materials, colors, size, etc. play an important role here.

There are plenty of accessories you can use to kickstart your new kitchen style, from display dinnerware to cutlery to drapes, smaller kitchen appliances like juicers and coffee makers can play a role in your new kitchen. Mainly because all of these things have individual styles of their own, if you have a traditional style kitchen why deck it out with a contemporary looking toaster and kettle? Things like curtains can look great when done correctly, but are you willing to remove and wash them regularly? Like all the steam, moisture, and grease blowing through the bowels of your kitchen can make them look not-so-new pretty quickly.

You can hang pictures on the walls that have influences from food and fruit, cooking, recipes, and the like.

You can also influence the kitchen on a daily basis, do you feel like spending a romantic evening with your better half? So why not put candles around the kitchen/dining room, petals, etc., at a children’s party? So balloons and streamers are also good.

There are so many things you can use to influence your kitchen that there really is no limit to what an imaginative mind can do these days!
