Is your kitchen outdated and, well, a little ugly? Sometimes, kitsch can be colorful and a little quirky. However, sometimes it can mean just plain old fashioned and weird. Don’t fret. This guide will give you some tips so you can say goodbye to your kitsch kitchen for good!
Pay Attention To The Smaller Features
The smaller features of your kitchen are going to make a big difference to the way it turns out. This means paying attention to your accessories, the colors you use, and even how tidy your kitchen is. All of these things make a huge difference. Don’t clutter your kitchen up with accessories, and stay on top of any mess. Make sure you’ve chosen a color scheme that will work well in your kitchen for the foreseeable future.
Know How To Add Personality The Right Way
Adding personality to your kitchen is great when you do it the right way. You don’t want it to look tacky. You can add personality by creating a cool backsplash from colored tiles for example. You could even choose a theme, e.g. country farmhouse, and try to emulate that as you go along. There’s a line though, between displaying things you like and displaying absolutely everything you like. That’s when the kitchen crosses over into kitsch territory!
Make Sure It Works For Your Family
Your kitchen not only needs to look good, it needs to function well too. What is your kitchen used for? If it’s used for both preparing food and eating, you’re going to need ample counter space. If it’s also used for entertaining friends, you’ll need comfortable seating. Make sure the lay out makes sense too.
Change The Look Entirely With New Countertops and Cabinets
You can completely change the look of your kitchen with new countertops and cabinets. You could look into kitchen remodeling if you have the cash for a renovation. If you’d rather save at the moment, using laminate and similar materials could be a cheap, temporary option. Choose something a little more modern and you can transform your kitchen.
Invest In New Appliances
New appliances will save money as they’ll use less energy than your old appliances. Not only that, they’ll look better! You don’t have to get shiny metallic appliances if that’s not your thing. There are all kinds of amazing, retro looking appliances that work just as well but add a little something quirky to your kitchen.
Change Up Your Hardware
Your hardware is one of the easiest things to change, and can lend a completely new look to your draws, cupboard doors, lighting, and more. It’s a DIY job, so you won’t need to get anybody in to do it for you. Just grab your hardware and a couple of basic tools!
There’s no need to put up with your kitsch kitchen any longer. Whatever your budget may be, whatever your dream kitchen looks like, you can create the perfect room in your home. If you have some ideas you’d like to add, leave a comment.
