Just like you get tired of staring at the same look every day that prompts you to change things up, facing the same space every day also has the same effect for the most part. Now and then, it really helps to shake things up and add a little pizzazz to your home, even if it means changing it up one space at a time. Re-decorating is not exactly an easy nor cheap task (depending on what you are looking for), and certainly not something the busy 21st century man/woman has time for. However, you can make use of these easy tips for an interesting and revamped kitchen, which often tends to be one of the most ignored areas in the house.
ADD SOME COLOUR
People are often afraid to experiment with kitchen spaces, because it is one of the more public areas like the living room for instance. It is often engrained in our minds that it should be neutral and kept that way however, you can break this rule to stand out. Add colour to your kitchen. Well, within reason of course. You cannot really add neon shades and hope to get away with it. Use one or two uncommon colours to create depth and dimension; you need not even paint up the entire kitchen. Just the kitchen bar stools or cabinets will do.
CHANGE THE DÉCOR
Kitchens are not spaces that are often known for décor, however if done right you can include it tactfully and beautifully, automatically uplifting your kitchen space. A carpet or rug under the table, a vase of flowers on the pantry and other little ornaments and knick-knacks carefully placed around can add some character. It can get boring to stare at plain old tiles and pantry cupboards all the time so it pays to look at décor changes. If your kitchen is mostly monochrome themed, then your décor can be bright and colourful.
GET NEW FURNITURE
Though this is obviously what you should do if your furniture is old and in need of being thrown out, you can also add new furniture just because. Unless your kitchen is very cramped, you can look at including a few well-placed counter stools. You will be surprised at what a difference furniture can make in a kitchen, provided you have thought it through well. You need to make sure that a kitchen always has ample space for everyone especially seeing as how there is plenty of room for accidents. Remember never over-clutter, even in the name of re-decorating.
ATTEND TO LIGHTING
The effect that proper lighting can have on a space is mind-boggling. You can really uplift and transform an area simply by paying attention to the lighting. There are so many different types of lighting today that you can look at for your kitchen revamping. Suspended lights for instance, are quite popular and look beautiful when suspended above kitchen islands. Plus, it always helps to have as much light as possible in a place where lots of activity is going on. Get a professional on board to help if you need to.
