Are you considering making a change to your kitchen design in 2019? If so, the choices are massive and so actually deciding what you want to do and sticking to said idea can be a challenge in of itself. Here is what you should consider when it comes to redecorating your kitchen this year.
1 – Use Colour Wisely
Colour can do magical things to a space, making it feel either like an enormous cavern or a tiny box. Understanding and utilising the mind-bending powers of colour, then, can make you somewhat of a decorating wizard. You just have to work out how best to achieve this first. And don’t forget there is the whole psychological factor behind colour choice. For example, people find blue very calming and tend to see yellow as a happy colour, while white often appears quite stark and uninviting.
Use white to open up space and give a better feeling of more room. You can then use a colour wheel to find similarly light colours in order to expand this feeling. Don’t forget to use mirrors as they can help to double the appearance of your space.
2 – Open Shelving
Put all of your pans, pots and spatulas on display shelves and suddenly you will have a very modern kitchen. Plus, everything will suddenly be much easier to find whenever you’re cooking. And everyone loves the appearance of a spice rack that is open on the kitchen wall.
3 – Create a Focal Point
If your kitchen has a definitive focal point it can really impact the feeling of your kitchen. A whole wall with cool design, an interesting clock or even just a very vibrant art piece can be the difference to bring life to your kitchen. Don’t feel obligated to make your focal point a feature wall, as that isn’t the be-all and end-all.
4 – Chalkboard Paint
Jazzing up your walls with a personal touch is always fun, but not so much if you’re not terribly artistic when it comes to painting and the like. This is where a nice section of chalkboard paint can come in handy, as this is where you can place family messages, meals for the weak and even try your hand at something a little more artistic. Whatever makes you and your family happy.
5 – Buy Stuff…
Okay, so it’s super simple but one of the easiest ways to help rejuvenate your kitchen’s look is to actually buy a few more pieces to populate it. Adding a few more pieces of contemporary furniture (such as crushed velvet furniture) can really make the ideal difference.
Redecorating can be quite a stressful thing to do, especially if you’re not very confident or altogether very good at DIY. But, it can also be incredibly rewarding to see the fruits of your hard work in a fully-functional and beautiful kitchen space. The fact of the matter is that if you gain the right skillset, you can develop a kitchen which is perfect for you and your family for many years to come.
