The kitchen is most certainly the heart of any home and who doesn’t love a hearty experience! Whether you’re on a late night snacking spree or having breakfast with family, the kitchen holds a strong space in the home. Who doesn’t want their kitchen to be the most welcoming, beautiful space in the abode? Let’s have a look at how you can take your kitchen from everyday ordinary to designer dreams, with just a few subtle tweaks.
Upgrade the light fixtures
Lighting tends to not be the first thing you’d switch up in a kitchen. Generally, people lean towards repainting walls or mixing it up with new flooring – not saying those aren’t aspects to consider – but a lovely light fixture can really re-imagine the space! Start by considering suspended lights. They bring focus to an area by creating a focal point in the room, opening and encouraging movement around the area.
Elias Deukmajian from the Kitchen Emporium says: “The importance of good lighting in a kitchen is something that should not be overlooked when it comes to designing your home. In fact, proper consideration should be given to not only what type of lighting is installed but where it is placed.”
Introduce open shelving
Some people may be hesitant about exposing them-shelves, but we’re not talking about your feelings here, we’re talking about your kitchen cupboards. The aim behind open shelving is to make guests in your home feel more welcome. To make them feel a part of the space. They can grab a cup or plate without having to ask you where it is. “They don’t have to ask where things are or go rummaging through cabinets because it’s all in plain view.” Jamie Scott from Caught in Grace told Good housekeeping.
Just keep it clean
Overthinking your future kitchen choices can put pressure on you to fill the space with expensive designer items. Quite honestly, as cliche as it sounds, all you have to do is ‘keep it simple’ or in better terms, keep the aesthetic clean. Don’t over clutter or over style the space. White is a great neutral colour for counter tops, walls, and even fixtures. It makes the space look and feel more open. Keep your containers neatly labeled, and stick to black and white kitchen decor. These small details will serve your foodie space that ‘clean’ aesthetic for the whole family to enjoy.
