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.
Concrete is a great idea for use as a countertop material. Not only is concrete durable but it comes in a variety of colors that can liven up the kitchen. It is versatile to work with different styles and design options, so there’s no worry about it not lasting for many years.
Ensuring that you have proper lighting in the kitchen is not just practical, but it can be a style element, too. Place light fixtures over the center of the room where you will have your kitchen counter. Make sure that the lights hang at a length that provides you with enough lighting. If you require extra lights, consider spotlights on the ceiling that do their job without getting in the way of the light fixtures. Now for the décor bit: choose light fixtures or chandeliers that have a striking design. Kitchen windows are an important part of the room because they add a charming element to it. Of course, bringing in extra light is also vital to prevent a dull kitchen. The windows are the perfect place for a bit of a style injection. A window covering or valance adds some décor delight to your kitchen while still letting the light shine in.
Mobile or portable kitchen islands are very great to have in homes with an open floor plan where the kitchen shares the same zone with the living space and maybe even some other areas. This means that the kitchen island can become part of any of the other spaces’ design as well. You can also use the kitchen island as a bar or an extension to the dining table. A kitchen island on wheels increases the versatility of the piece and gives you more freedom when using it. This island has a very intriguing design. It has a sleek metal frame with tall and thin legs with wheels and this simple design makes it lightweight and easy to relocate. Take out in the living room, in the dining room and even on the terrace.
