Simple Decorating Ideas 3: Kitchen Decorating Tips
Do you want to revamp your kitchen but have limited time and funds for a project? You have come to the right place; here you will find a few interior design ideas and tips that can make your next kitchen redo much easier, cheaper and time effective.
Brighten the Room: You do not have to completely repaint your kitchen or knock out a wall to brighten the room. Strategically placing mirrors in the room can make the room feel much bigger while at the same time picking up much needed light and brightening everything in the process. Place the mirror across from open windows or in a corner wall across from windows to optimise the light. Spring
Changes: Can you change up the furniture options in your kitchen to give it a more spring or summer feel? A summer arrangement can give the room a light and airy feel without sinking a fortune into redecorating. Once you have the room re-arranged, open the curtains and windows to let your spring and summer sun and air flow through.
Rugs: Perhaps one of the cheapest and quickest ways to decorate your kitchen is with the use of area rugs. These can be large full area kitchen rugs, which you can centre in the room or a collection of smaller rugs with the same basic design patterns or colours scheme. Rugs can add a splash of colour to an otherwise drab room, and they seldom cost very much money at all. If you decide to use a full area rug, say under the table, make sure you measure carefully, the rug should be able to accommodate the chairs when they are pulled out.
Cabinets: Pulling out your cabinets and replacing them is a fantastic way to revamp your kitchen, however it is also a very expensive prospect and definitely not a one day job! Instead of replacing all the cabinets in your kitchen, you could give them a fresh coat of paint and new hardware. Cabinet door handles and drawer pulls are simple to change and can create an entirely new look for your kitchen.
Conclusion: Decorating your kitchen does not have to mean a complete remodel. With a little, know how, a few tools and tips you can completely re-vamp the look of your kitchen in an afternoon. Other little things you can do to freshen up one of the most important rooms in the house is to repaint the trim. Window sills, door frames and wall trim can become exceeding dingy in the kitchen and a fresh coat of paint will make a world of difference! Whilst you have your window treatments down while painting don't put the same old ones back up again – replace them with kitchen blinds or new café styled curtains.
