Sprucing up your kitchen shouldn’t have to break your back or your budget.
Here are some of our favorite tips which can be done by any skill level. Try a few of these tips yourself – your friends will think you paid a designer to redecorate!
Brighten Up The Kitchen Use mirrors to capture the sunlight and bounce it around. Try putting a mirror across from a window or on a wall that corners against the window wall for the most light distribution.
Arranging Wall Art Grouping your wall art together creates a unique and interesting area on the wall. Try to align pictures in different geometric shapes (vertical, circular, triangular or rectangular groupings) in various sizes for a different effect.
Rearrange For The Season If you barbecue you might even switch around the table or dining area with the living area if it will give you a better flow for entertaining and enjoying the evening sun during meals.
Don\'t Forget About The Kids If you make most of the home child-friendly, then it is not outside of reason to create one area specifically for adult entertaining or relaxing. Giving children a small area within the adult room where they can read books or sit at a small table for quiet games will teach them to respect and take care of nice things.
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.
