Kitchens are one of the essential parts of a house. They are a place to nourish, to entertain, and to form deep bonds. And that’s why making a little effort to make these spaces attractive is worthwhile. The blog discusses some simple ways to make your kitchen brighter and more beautiful. Read on.
A kitchen is not only a cooking space but space where you can call over your closest friends for a heartwarming conversation. You bake a delicious cake where you can let your inner Masterchef experiment to their heart’s desire. An area where you turn to whenever you need that soothing cup of ginger tea on a gloomy day or to rustle up a quick pasta to quell your evening hunger pangs.
Space as intimate and essential to your house as the kitchen, thus, demands an attractive presence, a personalized statement, and a comfortable-yet-efficient environment. Here are five ways you can reclaim your kitchen.
Get Classic Stainless Steel Canisters
Are plastic containers spread everywhere in your kitchen shelves? Though one might argue that it is easier to locate stuff through their transparent material, it is also true that plastics are challenging to wash. If they are not hidden behind a cupboard, they don’t make a very appealing appearance displaying all kinds of colors and uneven quantities. Steel canisters, on the other hand, have a subtle shine that makes them look elegant. Moreover, they are effortless to clean and will last a lifetime. To counter the transparency issue, you can label them with a marker.
Paint Your Kitchen A Warm Hue
A kitchen is a symbol of warmth. Paint it with any pastel shade close to your heart. Warm shades also reflect more light, making your kitchen look bigger and brighter.
Open It Up
Try to have at least one window in your kitchen. If you have one that faces the sun and allows the sunlight to flood inside, nothing better! The warmth of the sun not only brightens up the mood, but it will also discourage microbial growth and insects that love to thrive in damp, dark spaces.
Add A Little Greenery
Don’t have a kitchen garden? No need to worry. Cut open a few plastic bottles, fill them up with soil halfway and plant herbs in them. Place them on the window sill or near the sink so that you can water them regularly. You have your tiny piece of the garden from where you can pick herbs to season your food! You can find a lot of ideas for bottle gardening online.
Install A New Appliance
Often, we get bored with the same technique of cooking. A simple way to change that is to get a new appliance or replace an old one with a new one with more features. The new appliance will also pique your curiosity and make your cooking time more comfortable to look forward to. And you can show it off to your friends the next time they come around!
These were a few simple ways of making your kitchen more attractive. However, if you want a dramatic change, the best approach is to get a remodel done.
