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.
Between the kids, the groceries, the bills and everything else in between, out kitchen counter tops seem to always be cluttered and chaotic. Not to mention, they’re never stylish enough to act as a decor-worthy aspect of the room. Well, let’s nix the attitude that kitchen counters are made for piling and get inspired. Take a peek at some of our finds and ideas on how to take those tops and turn them into organized and styled piece of your kitchen! We love this idea for the pantry but it works just as well for the counter tops too! Use different containers and different labels for an organized, yet funky, youthful look!
The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.
Because bar stools are a taller seating piece, they tend to be noticeable. A glossy modern stool or three can go a long way toward making an entire area feel more contemporary, if that is your aim. Metal, wood, even leather – the combination of the primary materials for industrial style are perfect for a variety of bar stools. If the style of your space happens to be leaning toward industrial already, enjoy the many bar stool options that complement that design. You might be best served by simply gravitating toward the type of bar stool that you love…just as you gravitate toward the variety of treasures you’ve already incorporated into your space. The bar stools will feel right at home. Fabric is definitely one of the easiest ways to bring in color and pattern into a space with bar stools. (Spaces that, typically, may be short on both of those design aspects.) Fabric bar stools tend to be comfortable and pretty, although probably the hardest to clean.
