Kitchen decorating is easier than you think!
The best decorating tips are ones which are easy on the hammer and the budget With a little imagination and some elbow grease, you can create a unique kitchen that will be the envy of most everyone.
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.
Dual Purpose Task Lighting Install lighting under the cabinets to illuminate when you work in the kitchen and also act as a night light.
Add A Border wallpaper borders are easy to put up and can add color and interest. You can use them at the top of the wall or go with a less traditional use underneath the cabinets. Use them at chair rail height to break up long walls. An even less expensive (but more labor intensive) alternative is to use stencils and paint.
Bakers Racks and Bookcases Bookcases and bakers racks or other shelving are often too cluttered and full of small knickknacks. Clear out some of the clutter and display your stuff to it\'s fullest.
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.
