Does your kitchen look boring? Here are 4 great ideas that will add luster to it!
When you head home from work after a long day, what you look forward to would probably be your bath, and then dinner. Sometimes the dinner comes before the shower. And your day could get better or worse depending on a few things.
I know some folks that will grab anything they could gnaw and gobble on their way home from work to avoid cooking dinner just because it gets all clumsy in the kitchen.
But have you heard of the saying that goes “as you make your kitchen so shall you cook in it?”
Part of the reason why you feel less enthused about cooking is probably, the insipidity of your kitchen.
It could take a lot of time and brainstorming to give your kitchen a facelift, but if you’re tired of junk food and all the harm it does to your body, here are five simple ways to add shine to your cooking room.
Tidy up your Kitchen
How many countertop kitchenware do you have, five or six? There are many appliances you stuff your kitchen with. Hide those coffee pots, blenders and mixers, and let go of that old microwave oven that’s giving your kitchen a medieval feel!
Try removing kitchen appliances that take up a lot of space and replace them with less bulky ones. By getting rid of all the stuff that makes you feel clumsy in the kitchen, you’ll be amazed at how inspiring your kitchen could look without spending a cent.
Update Lighting and Paint Walls
Josh, a friend who moved down south last summer often yammered about how he lacked ideas to giving his kitchen a facelift.
Then he sends a picture and I noticed the walls are painted beige and brown. With such boring colors, your kitchen may turn into a room you’re always in a hurry to escape from.
Paint your kitchen walls with brighter colors and update the ceiling with a chandelier. This trick automatically changes the ambiance of your kitchen, making it look larger and more sophisticated.
Cabinets and drawers are two of the most used hardware in our kitchen. Drawer pulls and cabinet doors get worn out faster than other fittings in the kitchen.
Update your cabinet and drawers with glassware. Lose some cabinet doors to create an open shelf. This adds a feel of luxury to your cooking room. And if you’re on a tight budget, revamp the worn out cabinets doors by sanding them and applying a new finish.
Add Decorative Elements
Nothing automatically adds life to a space more than a new artwork. Do not be afraid to explore your creative side. Using artwork is quite cost-efficient, especially if it’s a rented property or in houses where you can’t get to change the décor to your personal taste.
And maybe that flower vase is getting too old. So, it needs to be changed to an interesting fruit bowl or any other accessories that will make a big and bold statement.
Perhaps it takes several hours to prepare food. So, we understand why your kitchen may not be your most favorite room. You can blame part of it on your fast-paced lifestyle.
But there are many busy people who make breakfast before hitting the road every morning. You don’t have to cook hard; cook smart!
There is a wide array of household appliances that offer the convenience of fast, efficient cooking. All you have to do is to take a look.
