Tips to personalize your kitchen
You repainted the kitchen, installed tile for the backsplash, and even installed a new flooring. But something is missing in the decoration of your kitchen. You look around and realize that none of the accessories match. Your kitchen needs matching accessories to look good, like a new outfit. Try adding some matching accessories to your kitchen and watch the look improve.
The first thing to do is decide what theme or colors you need. Do you want a country house style decoration? A rustic Tuscan style? Or a modern and elegant look? Depending on the theme, you will need different accessories.
Take a look at some kitchen decorating magazines if you can’t decide what you want. The Internet is another good source of inspiration. Just browse around and get an idea of what you would like in your kitchen. Once you’ve decided, you can go to your local kitchen or home improvement store to get what you need. The choice of color should complement the main color of your kitchen.
Sometimes you may not even need to buy anything. Sometimes just rearranging what you have can create a new look for your kitchen. Look for groupings of odd numbers, rather than even. Vary the height and texture of the accessories. Move things around until you get the look you want.
Wall art, decorative baskets, plates, and trays can really add to the look. Just make sure you know how to properly hang the art pieces on the wall. Generally, wall art should be hung so that the center of the piece is at eye level. It also shouldn’t be more than seven to ten inches above the table. Try placing the wall art in groups on the wall. Placing pieces in a rectangle, triangle, or circle helps add more interest.
Bakery shelves and shelves often look too cluttered. Vary the heights of your cookbooks, but avoid placing small cookbooks next to large cookbooks. You can often make your books look more attractive by removing the dust covers. Organize the shelves and decorate them with pictures, baskets, candles and other small decorative elements. Make sure to put them in groups of odd numbers. Groups of 1, 3, or 5 elements seem more natural than an even number. If there’s room, put some plants on the shelves and in the corners to add some color and texture.
Hang copper pans from a wire rack to add warmth and color to your kitchen. While hanging things from the ceiling, add a plant or two to a bare corner of the ceiling, to give your kitchen a feeling of life. You can grow herbs in decorative containers on your windowsill, to add a little interest and provide fresh herbs for cooking. Colored bottles placed on the windowsill can also add a touch of color and interest to your kitchen. Cookware and cookware can spice up your countertops.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to customize your kitchen. You can buy one or two items at a time, add them to the counter or shelves, and then buy more as you can afford them. You can find good deals on kitchen decor items at yard sales and flea markets. Take your time and look around you. Find the right accessories for your kitchen and get creative. After all, it is your kitchen.
