In some houses, the kitchen is also used for dining purposes. So, it is essential that this part of the house should be given equal importance and decorated as efficiently and beautifully as possible.
Add a personal touch to your kitchen using these decorating ideas and get those appreciative glances from guests and visitors.
Kitchen Decorating Ideas
Choose A Good Color Scheme
The first thing to do when you decide to decorate your kitchen is to decide on a good color scheme. Choose the right paint color for the kitchen walls. A black and white color scheme is most simple and gives a modern vibe. You can get the walls painted in stark white. Kitchen flooring can be done with chequered black and white patterned tiles. Get kitchen cabinets in glossy black colors. You can similarly choose another color scheme of your preference.
Add A Touch Of Class
Different styles can be mixed to add charm and a sense of wonder to your kitchen. Start with a traditional style of pale blue walls and dark wood ceiling beams. Then, add some interesting modern touches, such as a beautiful chandelier hanging over the dining table, and floating touches. Hang a modern, contemporary painting on the main wall.
Attractive Cooking Zone
Do you know what the focal point of your kitchen happens to be? Well, it’s the cooking zone and good care should be taken to see that it is well decorated and maintained. The best decoration possible for the cooking zone is a modern cooking range in an attractive color. Add a splash to your kitchen with a blue or even red range cooker. An electrical chimney, in a matching or contrasting shade, hanging over it, will add that ultra modern look to your kitchen. A splashback like a light green glass will add a pop of color.
Light It Up
A kitchen requires good lighting as you need to see how your cooking is turning out to be! Hang bright lights over the cooking area for this purpose. The other walls can have those shaded lamps in colors which will enhance the color scheme of your kitchen. This is especially useful in the kitchen which also serves as a dining room. The dining area feels cosy and comfortable with muted lighting.
Attractive Shelving Units
Shelving units in all sizes, shapes and colors are available in home style stores. Get the ones suitable to your kitchen size and color scheme. You can add a decorative touch to these shelves by lining the backs with beautiful wallpaper in prints or a plain one that coordinates with the color scheme and design of your kitchen.
Add Decorative Accessories
If you have a large and spacious kitchen which is also used as a dining area, you can create drama with a lot of accessories. Place potted plants at the corners to bring freshness and get the feel of outdoors. Decorate the walls with family picture frames, or some interesting art work. Place an interestingly shaped lamp at a corner. Hanging a chandelier is a possibility in large kitchens. This will give it a really opulent look for sure!
