Functional and fantastic – that’s what your kitchen should be. To achieve this, here are some must-have décor items that are beautiful while being useful. You might have shelves and cabinets in their usual spots, but a bit of shelving above the stove can come in really handy. You could place items that you need in easy reach, such as your favorite cookbook. This area is also the perfect place for a bit of décor. Colorful crockery or a vase of flowers on the shelves, for instance, can be a great idea. The best part is that you can add or remove items as you wish, depending on what kind of style you wish to have in your kitchen.
Pastel colours have been running riot over the past year or so. From mint green, to candy pink, to luscious lemon; these shades are enough to make your mouth water. I don’t know about you, but I can just picture a doting mother and her daughter baking cupcakes in a kitchen like this. Black and white may seem like a safe option to go for, but when you bring gloss into the equation you not only maximise the shine but the style as well. Monochrome is bold, striking and contemporary, plus it’s relatively easy to use as well.
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.
Cork flooring in the kitchen can be a lovely rustic aesthetic to your home, plus with its sustainability factor, cork is a lovely choice instead of wood. Cork trees regrow every nine years, while trees such as maple take up to 30 years or more to replenish, thus using them are kinder to the environment. In the kitchen, cork works well when set against modern colors, such as lime green. They provide the perfect background for a bit of color saturation. Although it might not be considered eco-friendly at first glance, mounting your kitchen faucet to the wall can make a huge difference in the layout of the room. It allows for more space, which is especially advantageous in smaller kitchens. This maximizes your efficiency, allowing for more people to work at the sink simultaneously, which can also save you water.
