8 Decorating Ideas to Spruce Up Your Kitchen
Here are eight ways to spruce up an old or tired kitchen.
1. Change the sink
A kitchen sink and faucet contribute to the room’s overall look and feel. If you want to create a retro, bohemian or contemporary style in your kitchen, try changing the sink, the faucet or both.
2. Replace the lights
To change the look of your kitchen, add some new and interesting lighting options, such as a corner lamp, wall sconces, spotlights or simple hanging bulbs.
3. Choose expressive flooring
Bring excitement and vitality to your kitchen by changing its flooring. Try playing with contrasting elements, such as bold patterns in a white space or a matte texture in a bright room.
4. Reuse vintage items
Make an ingredients list on a black chalkboard, stack dishes on a ladder or place some plants on a swing. These items fit perfectly into almost any kitchen decor, whether it’s modern, country or bohemian.
5. Install a glass wall or partition
Glass allows a room to maintain its brightness, while dividing space as needed. With its industrial look, glass is reminiscent of an old workshop and adds an original, eye-catching look in any kitchen.
6. Replace your backsplash
Why not refresh your kitchen’s style with a new backsplash? Have some fun with an original design, or with an interesting pattern, texture or material. A backsplash provides a unique addition to any kitchen.
7. Replace cupboard doors and handles
When it comes to your kitchen cupboards, you can paint them, apply an adhesive cover to them, or completely replace them. For a less radical change, you can simply change old knobs for a more modern option in glass, stainless steel or even leather.
8. Put out plants
You can place some potted plants on the floor or you can go for a completely different look by hanging them on the wall. Plants in a kitchen help to keep the air clean and add a cheerful note.
By making some simple yet innovative changes, you can essentially create a brand new kitchen!
