It can be very easy to fall into the trap of a dull and generic kitchen design. We often tend to stick to a colour palette of white and grey because it makes life a lot easier. However, your kitchen is supposed to be a place that inspires creativity. You are going to be cooking meals in this room every day. Don’t you want it to be somewhere that looks innovative and stylish? If you really want to give your kitchen a show-stopping edge you should opt for bright shades. A lot of people are scared to go down this route because they believe it will be overpowering. But if you opt for bright pops of colour like this kitchen you’ll be just fine. Play towards the fun factor with some pop art and contemporary accessories.
The kitchen lets you add tons of storage. You can fit lots of different compartments for things like plates, cups, wine bottles, glasses, etc. It’s very practical, especially if you also plan to use the island as a bar or breakfast table. Open shelving is very practical in the kitchen because it lets you easily grab the things you need without having to open and close drawers or cabinet doors. They’re also great for display. In addition, shelves make the kitchen seem more open and airy than closed cabinets. Keep all kitchen essentials handy and store them off the counter. For example, hang your utensils on the backsplash and have small shelves on which to store all the tiny spice jars. This way they’re always within reach.
Install a metal bar directly under your cabinets and throw on some S-hooks – viola! You’ve just freed up a couple of “miscellaneous” drawers. You know the ones – the ones that are so full with oddly shaped items that they’re hard to open and, once open, it takes a while to find the item you actually need. I love how this idea can integrate easily into any style of kitchen. Taking two minutes to install a tension curtain rod in a kitchen cupboard (think: under the kitchen sink) will reap major rewards when you find you now have an organized, sanitary place for your kitchen cleaner spray bottles. You could even use the rod to drape cleaning cloths so you have everything in the same place for some quick cleanup.
