Freshening up your kitchen is no easy feat and there are plenty of things to keep in mind before you attempt it.
Whether you’re looking to revamp your kitchen or you’re simply looking for inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s everything you need to know if you want to give your kitchen a glorious face-lift like a pro! Follow these tips and tricks and take your kitchen to the next level in a few simple steps.
Think about your surfaces
Whether or not you plan on cooking in your kitchen, you need to make sure your surfaces look neat and pristine. Your countertops make up a large part of your kitchen, so making them look good will elevate the rest of the room. Start by selecting the right countertops and matching them to your desired style and feel. Your countertops need to be sturdy to accommodate any appliances, pots, pans, and cooking. They also need to look elegant and not too distracting to tie the whole room together. Make your countertops the perfect blend of style and function and your kitchen is sure to wow!
Think about lighting
Lighting plays a key role in how you experience and enjoy a room. Without the right lighting, your kitchen can look dull, uninspired, and downright spooky. To make things look better and more glamorous, ditch the single harsh overhead lighting and go for something more ambient. Get creative and have different types of lighting for different stylistic and functional purposes. The lighting in your kitchen serves two functions; to help you see what you’re cooking and to look good! With a few well-placed lights, you can take your kitchen from dreary and drab to fab in no time!
Add a fun feature
Sometimes, the most effective way to make your kitchen seem more luxurious is to add a fun feature to it. Your kitchen is a space for cooking as well as gathering and entertainment. To take your kitchen to the next level, you’ll need to add something extra to accommodate these functions. A bar station, an island, or a snack bar. Add some artwork to brighten up the area, or a small indoor garden if you’ve got the space. Don’t go overboard and add a bowling alley to your kitchen just for fun! Make sure that what you add, adds function and fun while elevating the space.
Store things the right way
An often underrated part of kitchen decor is your storage. If you want to elevate your kitchen to “luxury” status, you’ll need to find a clever and creative way to store your items. For starters, try to minimize the number of items you store and display out in the open. If you want to display your items, make sure to keep them in neat, uniform containers that look nice together. Get rid of any unsightly original packaging, loose bags, and mismatched containers. Show a unified front with the same uniform containers to elevate your space and make it look neat.
Keep things neat and tidy
Finally, if you want your kitchen to be the talk of the town, you need to make sure it’s kept neat and tidy. You could have the best marble, gadgets, and fixtures in the world, it won’t matter if your kitchen’s a mess. Make sure to always wipe down the surfaces and get rid of any loose crumbs or debris. Make sure all your metallic surfaces are shiny and stain-free, and always keep a clean floor. Regularly throw out the trash and make sure to get rid of any rotten food from your fridge and countertops. Cleanliness in the kitchen looks great and will keep you safe while you cook!
So there you have it! With this guide in mind, you’re ready to redecorate your kitchen into the glamorous dream kitchen you’ve always wanted! When it comes to making a luxurious kitchen, you first have to think about your countertops and surfaces. Think about the lighting you have and use it to set the mood and create atmosphere as well as provide light. Don’t be afraid to experiment and add a fun feature to your kitchen for entertainment and style.
Think long and hard about how you store things and make sure to keep things hidden or pleasing to the eye. Last but not least, never underestimate the glamorous power of a clean kitchen! Be sure to keep things neat and tidy and you’re good to go! Keep these points in mind and your kitchen is sure to be the talk of the town!
