The kitchen is one of the most important rooms of the house, as it brings families together. Whether you have a shared kitchen dining room or a smaller kitchen where the food is prepared, you’ll always find people gravitating towards the kitchen when you are entertaining! This means that a lot of care, attention and love needs to go into your kitchen design, so here are some décor ideas to inspire you.
A beautiful rustic kitchen is the dream of many homeowners. The look can easily be created, even if you don’t have rustic features, with cream cabinets and walls set off with wooden worktops and door knobs. You can also try and incorporate the distressed wood look with shelves and tables, and don’t forget some colourful crockery.
For a kitchen with country charm, stick to pastel colours. You can also use exposed brick and wooden panels on the walls for a rural feel. The country kitchen style incorporates lots of open storage – forget closed cupboards, it’s all about racks for your plates and welsh dressers with everything on display. Old furniture such as a shabby chic dining table would also look just right in this type of kitchen.
Bright and modern
If the rest of your home has a modern feel then you may want to let that creep into your kitchen too. Use colours to brighten up the space, making a statement with cupboards, kitchen islands or accessories. Modern kitchens need lots of natural light and you may want to think about replacing a full dining table with a breakfast bar.
If you’re looking for something ultra-chic and contemporary, then white is the way go to. Choose closed storage and lots of it, so there are no appliances or other bits and pieces on the shiny worktops. Low hanging, industrial style lights are also a great addition as this type of kitchen has little in the way of decoration.
Don’t forget that you don’t need to pull out your entire kitchen and have new worktops and cupboards fitted to have a revamp. A different wallpaper or colour on the walls can make a huge difference – contact us to find out how we can help.
