It can be very easy to fall into the trap of a dull and generic kitchen design. We often tend to stick to a colour palette of white and grey because it makes life a lot easier. However, your kitchen is supposed to be a place that inspires creativity. You are going to be cooking meals in this room every day. Don’t you want it to be somewhere that looks innovative and stylish? If you really want to give your kitchen a show-stopping edge you should opt for bright shades. A lot of people are scared to go down this route because they believe it will be overpowering. But if you opt for bright pops of colour like this kitchen you’ll be just fine. Play towards the fun factor with some pop art and contemporary accessories.
Install a metal bar directly under your cabinets and throw on some S-hooks – viola! You’ve just freed up a couple of “miscellaneous” drawers. You know the ones – the ones that are so full with oddly shaped items that they’re hard to open and, once open, it takes a while to find the item you actually need. I love how this idea can integrate easily into any style of kitchen. Taking two minutes to install a tension curtain rod in a kitchen cupboard (think: under the kitchen sink) will reap major rewards when you find you now have an organized, sanitary place for your kitchen cleaner spray bottles. You could even use the rod to drape cleaning cloths so you have everything in the same place for some quick cleanup.
Make sure everything has its rightful place in a drawer or cabinet. This works especially well when you have enough storage space. Then, style the slick counter tops with a bowl of fresh fruit or two, for contrast and modern, chic design. Get it all off the counters and into the shelves. Hang a basket on the wall for the mail and then organize everything us in the no-door cabinets. It’s a stylish way to design the kitchen, but also a clean, organized way to have space to cook, bake and entertain on the tops of the counters! All you need is a decorative tray that matched your theme and style genre to help organize, de-clutter and personalize! Keep everything in the corners at bay by using little pieces like this to keep it all focused.
The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.
