Having a great kitchen doesn’t have to be hard.
The best decorating tips are ones which can be done by any skill level. Finding the right “look” is the first step. After that, you are only limited by your imagination!
Get The MessageUse blackboard paint for the area in between your cabinets and counters. Plenty of room to jot down needed grocery items and leave notes for the family.
Paint Your Cabinets Painting old cabinets can make a world of difference - make sure you use paints that can be cleaned easily since cabinets get a lot of use and tend to get dirty. To give your cabinets some added pizzaz, paint in a fake molding by painting on even lines about 2\" in from the edge and highlighting the top and left side in a lighter color and the bottom and right in a darker color - this will create a light and shadow effect.
Say It With Slipcovers Slipcovers can provide a way to change your kitchen look quickly and easily. Many decorators have used white or cream slipcovers to good effect, although you may consider a stripe or other pattern to disguise everyday wear.Try to stay away from delicate materials like silks or velvets which stain easily and are difficult to clean.
Make Your Kitchen Warm and Cozy If you like the feel of a warm and cozy room then you\'ll want to start with a beige tone on the walls. Bring in some accessories in earthtones and match the curtains and throw rugs to those. Add in some silk or real plants for a bit of greenery and softness.
Cabinet Fixes Hate your old cabinets, but can\'t afford new ones? Try having the old ones resurfaced. Can\'t afford that? Paint them yourself or jazz them up with stencilling.
