It’s a new year and a new beginning for your home. As we’ve discussed previously, your kitchen is one of the easiest rooms to renovate—and most likely to give you more bang for your buck. Start the year right by planning your own kitchen overhaul, and consider these four ideas to make the space stand out.
1. Change the Aesthetic
Starting out, ask yourself what kind of feeling does your kitchen currently gives you and your guests? Maybe you’ve created a warm, friendly room that encourages relaxation and socializing. Or you could have a kitchen with a more modern edge, featuring sleek, metal appliances. You may even be housing a kitchen that lends a more classical approach to cooking and dining. Regardless of your current design, changing the appearance, and ultimately the ambiance, of your kitchen is easier than you might think.
Clean lines, a cool color scheme, and plenty of space are all hallmarks of the modern look. Depending on your appliances, complimenting them with a light grey or pale blue paint job will make them really pop. You’ll want to open up those windows and let all the light in you can in order to make the space feel larger and more inviting. Aside from brightening your kitchen space, you’ll also use less electricity, keeping your electric bills down.
