The heart and soul of your home can often be traced back to the kitchen. All the magic happens in that room. From family dinners, to therapeutic baking, to middle-of-the-night snacks, it’s no doubt that the kitchen is an important aspect of any house.
If your kitchen isn’t making you as happy as it once did, this blog is for you! We know how expensive and time-consuming it can be to completely remodel your space. Starting from scratch isn’t always practical or affordable, especially if you’ve got a list of other priorities. Thankfully, we know how you can step up your interior decoration.
We’ve put together a list of low-budget ways that you can give your kitchen the décor and revamp that it deserves without tearing it down.
Change up your Cabinets
An inexpensive way to completely change the look of your kitchen without remodeling is to apply a fresh coat of paint to your cabinets. We recommend following a monochromatic palette for this task. Sticking to neutral colours for your cabinets and countertops will allow you the freedom to decorate with a splash of colour. Having a loud colour for your cabinet doors will take away from the beauty of your entire kitchen and can sometimes be overwhelming.
Spice up your Island
Your kitchen island is the centre of focus in your cooking space. While having a clean and clutter-free island is ideal, it’s important to add décor that gives you and your family “homey” vibes. There are a few ways you can do this:
Invest in quality/unique bar stools:
Not everyone uses their bar stools to actually sit on, some are just for décor purposes. Either way, switching out your old stools can help re-establish style in your kitchen. If your current stools are still in good condition, consider selling them online or at a garage sale to make some extra cash.
Add a detailed vase with flowers as a centrepiece:
Whether they’re fresh or fake, flowers will add a personalized touch into your kitchen. Having an empty island often looks too plain. By showcasing a decorative vase, you will be adding life onto your counters. If you’re not a fan of flowers, consider instead using elegant candleholders or a fruit bowl.
Change or Add Lighting
The tone of light in your kitchen can make a huge impact on the way it looks overall. If you find that your space is too dim, it’s time to change it up! Light fixtures and under-cabinet lighting installations are a great way to improve lighting without compromising on style.
Get Decorative Towels
When planning out your ideas, we recommend following a consistent colour scheme to redecorate your kitchen. Small details such as hand-towels can complement the look of your space. These can be hung on the handle of your oven or the edge of your sink.
A task as simple as replacing cabinet knobs can go a long way. If you’re not too fond of completely painting every door and drawer, check out your local hardware store for knob options. Adding something more decorative or modern can completely transform the look of your cabinets.
Replace your Faucet
Let’s face it, washing dishes isn’t exactly everyone’s favourite chore. Due to this, the sink is sometimes avoided and neglected. For a noticeable upgrade, try changing your faucet to give it a new look. Whether you go for an arched faucet or a single-handed one, adjusting the appearance of your sink is a worthwhile investment.
Get Rid of Mismatching Dinner Plates
Say goodbye to the days of having mismatched cutlery and dishes! We also advise tossing out your plastic bowls if you no longer have young children. In fact, switch to stainless steel. Finally, if you’re in need of something a bit fancier, pick out a set of decorative plates that will match the theme of the rest of your kitchen.
Take Advantage of your Windows
Decorating your windows can make a dramatic difference, especially in your kitchen. Having natural light flowing into your home throughout the day is wonderful, but it’s not practical to leave your windows bare. Using curtains can add a decorative colour touch to the space while also giving you the advantage of controlling the amount of sunlight that comes in.
