If you’ve seen those kitchen improvement shows and wished you can do the same for your kitchen, what are you waiting for? With so many do-it-yourself tools and tips you can use these days, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to come up with kitchen decorating ideas that are easy to do. Here are some you can try:
1. Change your kitchen walls
Decorating your kitchen is as easy as changing the way your walls look, either by using new paint or wallpaper. Paint and wallpaper create a whole new ambience easily, allowing you a great start on your kitchen decorating plans. A newly painted or ‘papered wall can provide you with a great backdrop and inspiration. Use borders for accents or added interest to break the monotony.
2. Use a kitchen island
If your kitchen space allows it, add a kitchen island. You can use the added working area for food preparation or for small gatherings. A kitchen island can also help loosen up the traffic in your kitchen, allowing you to work on your braised pork while someone washes the dishes behind you on the sink.
If your kitchen area is smaller, you can remedy the limited space by using a kitchen cart. This usually comes with wheels so it’s easy to move around. It also has the necessary hooks, shelves and drawers that are perfect for your storage needs.
3. Add curtains
A well-treated kitchen window will do a lot in changing the way your kitchen looks. By simply adding a curtain or replacing an old one, you can update your kitchen with minimal effort. Choose lively prints or lines that work well with your new paint or choose a repetitive pattern prevalent in the room, such as fruits or vegetables, and use those for the curtains. This will help coordinate your design.
4. Use kitchen organizers
Kitchen organizers are a great way of decorating your kitchen while at the same time, providing you with more space for storage. Use movable storage to maximize space and still allow you to keep your silverware and plates safe and out of the way or install hooks and overhead racks from which to hang towels, utensils and pots from.
Choose organizers in colors and styles that reflect the kind of personality your kitchen has. Go for clean, laminated wood organizers to blend well with your kitchen’s varnished wood or pick stainless steel racks to work well with the modern look you want to achieve.
