If you want to decorate your kitchen but are afraid of doing something too drastic, you can still do a few things to help bring your old kitchen back to life.
Many people often find that doing some basic things to revive their old kitchen is better than doing something drastic because of how quickly you can finish the decor, but also because of how cheap it can be done.
The first thing you can do to help brighten up that gloomy kitchen is to use mirrors throughout the kitchen. The mirror will capture sunlight, and if placed correctly, the mirror will reflect sunlight around the room making it brighter without worrying about adding light. The best place to place a mirror is on the wall directly opposite the window.
If you are bored with plain white walls, but don’t want to do anything drastic, you can try painting the walls gray or beige, avoiding whites and muted whites as they will give you the same boring look.
Using lower tones, more neutral colors will also help prevent you from getting bored with more drastic choices as you can add items or pick up items without worrying about the decor clashing with the walls.
You can also redecorate your kitchen every season. This can include putting out Christmas or winter decorations during those long winter months, but it can also mean moving your furniture around to create a certain atmosphere. For example, opening the curtains and removing a few clutter can make your kitchen feel spacious and cool, reminiscent of summer.
The covers or cushions you use on kitchen chairs can also create a different look, depending on what you’re using. You can buy chair covers and cushions for each of your chairs or you can make your own. No matter which method you use, you’ll want to get some variety so you can update your look with the seasons or holidays.
To help add to your kitchen you can use your cookbook to make some great displays. If you are using cookbooks to add to your kitchen décor you want to make sure that you don’t put the smallest books before the tallest books, you want to align them from tallest to shortest.
You can also hang plants in your kitchen to add an outside feel; they can also create a lot of interest. The best part is that you can use real plants or silk, it doesn’t matter.
