Add a Little Winter Spice to Your Kitchen this New Year!
As the festive day approaches and the New Year isn’t too far behind, now is the time to start planning some home projects to begin once 2016 finally arrives. Many of us set ourselves goals or ‘resolutions’ if you wish, for the New Year to try and accomplish before the year is up. However, instead of setting yourself typical goals that many of us go for, why not focus on your home?
Add a little spice to your kitchen with our array of tips on how to spruce up the space you already have. Once the New Year arrives our bank accounts are feeling defeated, therefore a complete renovation is the last thing we want; it’s costly, time consuming, but also unnecessary the majority of the time.
If you’re fortunate to have a kitchen big enough to hold an island, here are a few tips to give it a little tender loving care: Add a splash of colour to bring it to life. You can even add accents of colour by purchasing brightly coloured bar stools or fruit bowls to place with the island.
Going along the lines of adding accents of colour or patterns to help spruce up your space, another idea we can provide is to add a feature wall. This can be done in tiles, wood panelling, wallpaper or anything else you can think of. The idea behind a feature wall is for it to stand out and bring a bit of character to the room. You can have a photographic backsplash area that has an easy to clean finish, or you could add a striking marble effect to your kitchen too.
It is also good to mix things up in the kitchen. Not everything has to match; colour, materials and even chairs. Everything can seem a little pristine when it is all one colour, equally laid out and matching, which can often make it not feel like a home to some. Mix it up by having marble worktops or accessories, but wooden flooring or panelling elsewhere. The contrast works beautifully together, but adds personality too.
Get rid of clutter. No one likes a messy house, especially when you have guests coming round. Although a bit of clutter is standard and expected, do not overcrowd worktops or tables. These are your most functional areas in a kitchen that are also exposed at all times. Stick to the essential appliances and small decorative objects and leave the rest for elsewhere.
