Ugly sweater parties, cookie-baking sessions, eggnog soirees – it’s no secret December is one of the busiest months for the kitchen. However, counter clutter or blah colors could dampen the holiday spirit. Looking for ideas on how to wow your family and friends with your impressive interior design skills? Get your kitchen looking fa-la-la-abulous with the following tips!
Bold color accents stand out against white or neutral-colored walls and/or counters. A brightly-colored tile backsplash livens up an otherwise traditional-styled kitchen. A red faucet accentuates a modern-styled kitchen. The trick to adding color is a) less is more and b) think of it as the focal point of your kitchen.
Keep your kitchen clutter-free by making the most of your space. For drawers, dividers, trays, and built-in spice racks give you more room to store smaller items. Cabinets can be maximized by installing lazy susans, roll-out trays, and over-the-door racks. Storage accessories are especially important for kitchens with limited counter space.
Impress your friends and save on your water bills with a touchless faucet. If you worry about leaving the faucet running, a touchless faucet may be for you. This type of faucet is activated by waving your hands in front of a sensing zone, making it handy for messy baking projects. Many touchless faucets come with options to turn on or off the motion-activated feature.
Sometimes, changing the smallest features can make a big difference. If your cabinet hardware is worn out or mismatched, consider replacing it. U-shaped pulls work well with modern kitchen cabinets, while intricate knobs add elegance to traditional kitchen cabinets. The right cabinet hardware adds that “perfect touch.”
Does your kitchen lack proper storage space? Maintain an airy, clutter-free appearance by installing floating shelves on your kitchen walls. Decorative items and kitchen accessories can be stored on your shelves, adding beauty and function to your kitchen.
Food preparation becomes easier with a kitchen island. If you have cooking or baking parties, a kitchen island allows for more work space. You can also place a bar sink in the island to make entertaining guests more convenient.
Eliminate foul smells by installing a wastebasket drawer for your cabinet. This is a rollout drawer you’ll easily be able to pull out to throw your trash away or remove the wastebasket for emptying.
