Invest in Light Fixtures
Does your kitchen have a ceiling mount light or a hanging light all this time? If so, you may want to swap it out with modern pieces. Even if you add some lights you never had before can alter the kitchen’s entire mood. Adding pendant lights over the kitchen island or placing a hanging pot light above the sink can make a difference in how your kitchen will look. Ensure you use LED light bulbs to brighten up the room in an efficient way.
Install a Backsplash
For a simple and affordable backsplash, choose subway tiles or bold tiles with interesting colours and shapes. You can choose from a variety of sizes, colours, and styles for subway tiles. You can make an excellent focal point with affordable tiles.
As you think about the kind of backsplash to install, consider the look of your countertops. If the countertops are quite simple and plain, have the backsplash as the focal point. To make it noticeable and attractive, play with its colour, shape, or texture. If you have bold countertops with plenty of designs and interests, keep the backsplash simple.
Update the Kitchen Island
Consider having an overhanging island but ensure the new overhang does not impede the walkways. You do not need to replace the rest of the kitchen countertops. If you cannot find the same countertops, just opt for complementary countertops.
Display Your Collectibles
Do you have beautiful bowls, sophisticated china, or fine stemware? If so, show them off as part of your décor. For this to happen, add a glass front to your upper cabinets or install floating shelves. Also, you can get rid of the cabinet door completely and display the collectibles there. To make the kitchen more interesting than before, paint the cabinet’s back wall in a fun colour.
