Creating a kitchen like the pros should be a snap.
Here’s some tips on decorating which are easy on the hammer and the budget You’ll be surprised at how a few simple changes can make a huge difference in the look of your kitchen.
Afraid Of Changing Your Drab White Kitchen Walls? Instead of choosing rich, deep colors for your first project, you will likely feel more comfortable with a neutral such as beige or gray which will not date the room or create a jarring palate that you will easily tire of.
New Faucets You look at your faucet every day, but do you really see it? Take a good look, is it scratched and rusty? Maybe it\'s time for a new faucet? When buying faucets, think about the other metal in your kitchen and buy one that matches - if you have brass cabinet knobs and light fixtures then go for a brass faucet.
Get Creative Your backsplash area is an opportunity for creativity. You can make a mosaic backsplash out of tiles or even pieces of chipped plates. Use plates in a matching pattern to your dinnerware and smash them into little pieces. At your crats store, get any product or book on mosaics and apply the techninque to your backsplash - unique!
Cabinets Redoing your kitchen cabinet design can make a huge change in your kitchen. If you can afford to have new cabinets put in, consider changing the configuration for maximum efficiency and effect. If you can\'t, you can change the look of your cabinets with simple and inexpensive methods, or you can have them entirely resurfaced and they will be like new.
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.
