21 Oct Ways to brighten up a tired kitchen
You’ll often hear people say that the kitchen is the hub of a home. It’s the place where everyone congregates at parties, where your kids sit and do their homework while you prepare the evening meal, and maybe even where you all sit down as a family to eat. As such, you should pay the most attention to the décor.
After all, if you’re going to be spending that much time in there, you’ll want to make sure it’s to your liking. So if your kitchen is looking a bit old and worn, here are some ways to brighten it up, and transform it into the kitchen of your dreams.
Hang pots and pans
Do you often find that when it comes to needing a specific pan, you have to reach right into the back of your kitchen cupboard? Well, thanks to this nifty solution from housebeautiful.com, all of your pots and pans will be within easy reach and you can even use them as a decorative feature – what’s not to love?
Sort out your lighting
If nothing else, you should always ensure that the lighting in your kitchen is good. Invest in spotlights around your cooking and preparation area to aid with optimum visibility. If you have an open kitchen, you should consider down lighting over the dining area – this will cast a soft warm glow that is more relaxing in the evenings. We love this kitchen from channel4.com – the multiple lights really help to brighten up the dark worktops.
Chalk board the wall
You’ll never have to worry about misplacing your shopping list again with a chalkboard kitchen wall. There will be no need for a calendar as you can simply wipe away tasks and add new ones daily. What’s more, it’ll even provide a creative outlet for your children. Easyliving.co.uk has completely nailed it with this kitchen idea.
Custom-write your kitchen splashback
We think this customisable kitchen splashback seen on housetohome.co.uk is the ideal way to personalise any kitchen. It’s easy to fit as it just sticks to the wall, so there’s no need to worry about tiles and grouting. What’s more, you can choose up to 100 words, allowing you to customise it to your exact wishes. How about having one made with a list of your favourite dishes from around the world?
