When it comes to breathing new life into an old space, you need to think a little outside the box, with more than a little creativity thrown in for good measure. Thankfully, there are many tricks and tips you can look into in order to save cash whilst doing your kitchen remodeling task to the best of your decorating ability.
If you need a little inspiration to help you on your way, check out these ideas.
Cut out the clutter, stick to sleek, modern lines
You might like the old fashioned feel to a space, but in terms of kitchen remodeling in this day and age, you need to think clutter-free, modernistic, clean lines. Have a good clear out, throw away anything which hasn’t been used in the last month or two, and look at your cupboard space – do you have enough, or are you lacking? If you need more space, consider working upwards, rather than across – this will give you more working space, and will look pretty impressive too!
You can do a modern take on vintage style quite easily nowadays. You only have to look at the retro black, red, and white appliances that are on the market to see how you can work this into your décor when undertaking your kitchen remodeling. There are also some classic designs you can work towards, such as the farmhouse look, which is immortalized in the kitchen design world, so perhaps this is a design you would like to incorporate into your space.
White is the way to go?
If you want a design which always looks clean and shiny, although will need quite a bit of cleaning upkeep behind the scenes, then white as a complete colour scheme is a new trend on the block. This also gives the appearance of a bigger room, because it reflects the light.
Think outside the box
You don’t have to follow rules or designs, you can make your own. How about wallpapering the ceiling for a totally different look? Think about fancy lighting, such as chandelier-effect designs, or uplighting in different places around the room. You don’t have to follow the rules.
Breakfast bars are iconic
Breakfast bars and stools in the middle of the space, provided your room is big enough, is a great way to incorporate a more social side to your kitchen, and is also a great idea if you don’t have a dedicated dining room. This is a very modern style to a room also; think black glitter effect surfaces and funky swivel bar stools.
When working up to a kitchen remodeling project, it’s certainly worthwhile doing your planning well ahead of time, but these ideas could certainly grab your imagination.
