Bamboo is a sustainable material that can work wonderfully in the kitchen. You can choose from various grains and colors. A lighter shade of bamboo works well to make the kitchen appear light and bright. Volatile Organic Compounds (or VOCs) are toxic gases that are released from wall paint, so a good green move is to choose paints that are low or completely free of VOCs. Also choose building materials such as VOC-free glues and adhesives to ensure a healthier kitchen. Using what you already have to update your kitchen can be a simple way to jump on the eco-friendly bandwagon. Mismatched chairs look trendy and fun, while breathing new life into items of furniture that you did not want.
Take your organizing skills to the next level by adding some hidden compartments! The outgoing mail, cookbooks, recipe cards, shopping lists and everything in between can fit right inside and stay off the counters, making for a cleaned and revived kitchen! We love mixing compartments too. A vase, bread basket and even a serving tray can all come together to create a perfect place to organize your spices and most used ingredients, as well as utensils! Use whatever you like to organize, but keep within a monochromatic theme. This will enhacen the clean and fresh vibe but also give your kitchen a contemporary, fashion-forward air about it as well.
You can have the traditional set of dining room chairs, but give them an updated look. Plaid is a pattern that is back in fashion, and it looks lovely without losing its classic appeal when used in dining room chairs. Choose dining room chairs that are of a different shape to suit your room better. Round or oval shapes work wonderfully with round tables, plus these can be matched with other shapes in the room to create balance. Make the head of table chairs match each other, leaving the rest of the chairs in a different design. This is highly effective as an update to your chair set, plus it can help to evoke a certain mood you wish to achieve.
Even though you can now basically find anything you need on the internet, an old-fashioned cookbook can still be very helpful. Store your collection somewhere convenient like on a shelf in the kitchen island or somewhere handy where they don’t clutter the room. Having a wine rack in the kitchen is very practical. Of course, you’ll want it off the counter. A great idea is to have wine storage compartments in the island but you could also find some space for them in the cabinets or even inside a wall. It’s very useful to have dedicated drawers for things like knives, utensils, dishes, spices and other things which come in packs and sets. It makes it easier to be organized and the kitchen also looks more clean and professional this way.
