We have some kitchen redesign tips that will make yours look just as good as the other rooms in your house!
1. Removable Wallpaper Inside Cabinets
If you’d like to jazz up your kitchen, add some removable wallpaper to the interior walls of your cabinets.
Choose any pattern you like. It’s your apartment, so you can use whatever wallpaper your little heart desires!
Wallpaper behind salad bowls and pitchers will really make your kitchen accessories pop.
Imagine seeing a peppy background every time you open up your cabinet door.
It’ll no doubt put a smile on your face and make you eager to prepare your meal!
2. Coffee Bar
This kitchen redesign tip is for the coffee lovers.
Carve out a small area in your kitchen for a coffee bar.
Or, get a kitchen island or cart where you can set up a coffee station.
A designated coffee spot can help you keep all your supplies in one place.
And one where you can make one of these eye-opening coffees every morning.
That way, you won’t have to search for the sugar while you’re still wiping crust out of your eyes in the morning.
You’ll already know where everything is!
Plus, you can impress your guests with your cool coffee bar when they come to visit.
3. New Light Fixtures and Bulbs
If you want to make your kitchen more inviting, bring in some light.
It will highlight the details in your decor, and can even make your kitchen look more spacious.
For the best kitchen lighting, consider adding a modern pendant fixture.
It will hang from the ceiling and disperse light evenly throughout the room.
You want your pendant light to blend in with the rest of your kitchen.
So, make sure it matches the metal of your cabinet knobs and faucet.
Lighting can make a room feel homier by adding warmth and positive energy to it.
And that’s what you’re trying to achieve, not only in your kitchen but in every room!
These simple changes can help you create a cozy and relaxing environment where it’s fun to cook.
Plus, with perfect lighting, you’ll have no problem reading the recipes in your favorite cookbook!
4. Drawer Dividers
Nothing makes a kitchen look more organized than drawer dividers.
Like most of us, you probably have a lot of kitchen utensils.
They’re helpful when you have a dinner party, but the rest of the time, they’re kind of a pain.
I mean, who wants to dig through a pile of utensils to find the one you’re looking for?
Thankfully, we have drawer dividers to keep them in order.
All you have to do is place them into your drawer, and you’re good to go.
No more disorganized piles of forks, spoons, and salad tongs!
5. Fun Outlet Plates
Outlet covers are a fun way to add some personality to your kitchen.
There are all sorts of wall plates that come in fun patterns, so it’s not hard to find one that suits your style.
Whether you’re looking for something bold or something soft and simple, you’re sure to find one you love.
(Check out these steampunk light switch plates that resemble machine gears. Pretty cool!)
In many ways, decorative outlet covers are kind of like functional artworks.
They serve an important purpose, but they also look great.
Seeing your new wall plate will make you happy every time you walk into the room!
