5 Tweaks That Will Revolutionize Your Kitchen

We all love our kitchens to be as functional and beautiful as possible. There's a good reason why, too. Most people spend a great deal of time in their kitchens, and it tends to be a busy place that serves multiple functions. Since we expect so much of our kitchens, it's wise to make the most of them, and even the little tweaks can make a big difference. Here are five of those adjustments that will make a huge difference to the functionality and beauty of your kitchen.

 

Custom Cabinetry

If you are in the market for cabinets, but you're not sure if you should go with standard cabinetry or custom, seriously consider custom cabinets. With standard cabinets, small spaces are often not utilized to their full potential. When a space in your kitchen is in between two sizes of standard cabinets, the smaller cabinet is installed with a filler piece so that the cabinet looks finished off. The only problem is that the filler piece is wasted space. When someone custom designs your cabinets, they can find the best ways to use all of your space.

 

Brighter Lighting

If you feel cramped and claustrophobic in your kitchen, a fairly simple and inexpensive fix is to change the lighting so that it is brighter. It will make your kitchen feel bigger and more cheerful. It also makes finding the wine bottle opener easier to find. Update your interior paint job to brighten up the room even more.

 

Knobs and Drawer Pulls

If you feel like your kitchen is looking outdated, changing out the hardware on your cabinets is a fairly inexpensive way to drastically change the way that your kitchen looks.

 

Staging

It's the details that matter the most, and sometimes those details are pretty simple fixes. For instance, a small rug or some flowers can make the room so much more inviting. Feel free to look at the magazines for ideas.

One of the easiest ways to create a more enjoyable, functional, and beautiful kitchen is to get rid of things that you no longer need. Many people tend to keep things that aren't serving a purpose anymore. Sometimes, we do this because there's nothing wrong with the item. For instance, if you have forty mugs, it's very unlikely that you'll use them all. Go through and keep the ones that you love. The rest, you can either have a garage sale, give to a friend, or donate to charity.

 

There are numerous small upgrades or even minor changes that will drastically improve the beauty and functionality of your kitchen. You will feel more comfortable and confident that your kitchen is serving your needs in the best possible ways.

Feeling like your home décor is falling flat?



If you’ve carefully picked out furniture, poured over paint swatches, but still feel like something is missing, you could be forgetting one key piece of the decorating puzzle: texture. Oftentimes, it’s is an afterthought when we’re making our decorating plans, but designers know that it’s key to bringing a room to life.

If your home is in some serious need of texture, don’t panic! There are plenty of easy ways to add life to any room. Rugs are a great way to do this with a single piece. Whether it’s patterned or Persian, made of wool or faux fur, large or small, any rug will instantly make a room more dynamic. Plants also give a room texture, and they’ve got a bunch of other benefits as well, including purifying the air, sharpening focus, and improving health. Make sure to get plants that are suited to a room’s lighting, otherwise, you might run into problems keeping them alive! A mirror can also add some variety and character to a room, while also adding dimension at the same time.

Those are just three out of the many ways to add texture to any room. If these techniques don’t fit with your home’s style, check out Better Homes & Gardens’ guide on how to weave texture into any décor style. Though it may seem like an intimidating design challenge, adding texture is actually one of the simplest ways to improve the look and feel of any room in your house.
