Practical Kitchen Decorating Ideas on a Budget
The kitchen is probably the most used room in your home besides the bathroom, and is therefore a great place to start if you are considering renovating or redecorating your home. Since this is the heart of your home, adding some new home décor to your kitchen is a great way to give your home a fresh new feel. Don’t worry, redecorating your kitchen does not have to be expensive. While it certainly could be if you were to replace appliances, flooring, cabinets and other large ticket items; however, there are plenty of ways that you can give your kitchen a facelift without blowing your budget. Check out the ideas below to help you spice up your kitchen and breathe new life into the heart of your home.
- Add Textiles with Flair – If you want to make a big impact in a small kitchen without it being too overwhelming, a great way to do this is to introduce bold textiles into the space that feature eye catching colors such as reds, yellows and oranges. Add rugs, pictures, curtains and other accessories in the same color family and you will quickly add some visual interest to your small kitchen space. Not only this, you can be sure that this inexpensive idea is sure to give you a lot of impact for the cost.
- Lighting – Lighting is very important in setting the mood and creating the ambiance in your home. If your kitchen currently has inadequate or incorrect lighting, adding new light fixtures is a great choice. Choose recess lighting to provide direct light to areas where food is prepared and cooked while keeping the lighting in the entertaining and eating area a little more toned down to set the right mood and create a welcoming ambiance that you are sure to enjoy whether eating dinner with the family or entertaining your friends or coworkers.
- Cabinet Hardware – This is an area that you may not give much thought; however, with the right hardware you can transform your cabinets and make them pop. Your local hardware store as well as many online retailers offers plenty of styles of cabinet handles and drawer pulls to choose from. Consider choosing handles in the same finish as your appliances or for visual interest, add colored handles and drawer pulls in the accent color you have chosen to use in your kitchen to help create a cohesive pulled together look.
