The kitchen in your home can be a place of community, family, and memories. Although, many people hate even going to their fridge for a snack, let alone cooking a meal and enjoying it with friends. We understand.
But your negative feelings don’t have to continue, and you don’t necessarily have to crank out $20k to go from boring to something you love. Small changes can turn your kitchen into a room that makes you say…Wow!
To help on your journey to a better cookery we’ve come up with three things you should consider to make the space pop.
1. Make A Statement
Your kitchen wasn’t made for fashion, it was made for cooking and storing food. That’s a necessary part of your life, but not exactly glamorous. You’ll have to help the space along in order to enjoy it. Here are a couple of ways to make a statement:
Feature Wall: They’re not just for your living room anymore. You can paint one wall a wild, but elegant color and leave the rest with just a fresh coat of normal. This step alone could make a huge difference in your mood when walking into the room.
Back splash: Adding a colorful or patterned back to your stove or under your cabinets could create a stylish new look that improves the entire look of your kitchen. Try a unique, yet cool pattern (like chevron) or a unique spin on a favorite like subway tiles with a strong color.
2. Lose the Hardware
One of the most stylish statements in the modern era can be created by using clean smooth lines. Traditional kitchen hardware and cabinets are bulky at best and tacky at worst.
By using invisible hinges on cabinets, you can create a seamless line of beauty. Not only will it be sleek and “wow” worthy, it will be durable too. Our SOSS invisible hinges last for decades due to their quality construction.
3. Change It from Top to Bottom
No. We’re not suggesting to rip your kitchen down to the studs and start over. We are literally suggesting changing your ceiling and floors (aka the top and bottom).
The ceilings are usually just a white or textured space that is begging for some color. You can paint it to make it match the rest of the room, or go the extra mile and use fashionable ceiling tiles to make a very wow statement.
With your floors, it can be tricky. They may be beautiful, but if you are looking for a room that has loads of color you can make some inexpensive (yet drastic changes). Painting wood floors in bright accent colors with a different design will make people take notice. Try something really fun like a zig zag or square patterns to really show off.
Now, it’s time for you to take an honest look at your kitchen and load up the charm and style until you say WOW!
