To a home owner, every single part of the house is very important. However, if we cut through the sentimental attachment to every room and look at things more objectively, a realisation that the kitchen is the most important room of a home will come. Come to think of it, the kitchen is where we do a lot of stuff aside from its obvious purpose of being where we cook our food and eat.
The kitchen has also become a very popular spot for entertaining guests, believe it or not. We share lots of precious moments with friends and family at the kitchen and talk about stuff, often with a steaming cup of coffee or tea in hand.
Since the kitchen is the most important room of a home, we owe it to ourselves to make it look the best that it can. If you are planning to do some kitchen renovation, here are 6 tips that could help you make your kitchen look more fabulous.
A fresh paint job
Anything old will always look like new with a fresh paint job. In fact, a fresh paint job may just be all the kitchen renovation you need. Paint the walls, the cupboards and an old island and it will certainly make your kitchen look more fabulous.
Install quality appliances
Few things make a kitchen look better than good appliances, which you should be spending a bit more money on in the first place. While cheaper models can function just as well in the beginning, they typically don’t last long. When that happens, that means you have to buy new appliances all over again. This is a cycle that will be repeated often if you keep on furnishing your kitchen with low-end microwave ovens, refrigerators and gas stoves, among other things. But if you buy good quality appliances, they will not just make your kitchen look more fabulous, but will also last you for a long time and save you money in the long run.
Transform your tiles with tile decals
Are you sick and tired of your kitchen tiles but don’t have the budget for a full kitchen renovation? You can transform your tiles without having to replace or remove anything. Just buy tile decals from the nearest home improvement store and stick them to your tiles to give them a new, fresh look. These decals come in various sizes and designs, so choose the ones that you most agree with, and make your kitchen look more fabulous without much expense.
Accessorize your kitchen
Any part of the house can look so much better with the just the right accessories. If you actually have good artistic taste, then find artworks, seats, appliances and kitchenware that will complement each other and make your kitchen look more fabulous. If you don’t have confidence in your artistic taste, then find someone else who does.
Light your kitchen better
A well-lighted room is always preferable over a dark or dimly-lit room. Whether it’s natural or electric lighting, there is no denying that your kitchen will look bigger and feel warmer, making it an even better place to spend a lot of time friends and family in. If possible, however, use natural light as much as you can, but if the kitchen doesn’t get much sunlight, you can always install lighting fixtures that will enhance the way your kitchen looks.
Complete kitchen renovation
Now a full-blown kitchen renovation may sound like it’s going to cost a lot of money, and the truth is, it probably will. However, a complete kitchen renovation will save you money in the long run. Patching an old kitchen up in stages can be costly. A quality kitchen renovation not only will still look great in 15+ years, but viewed an an “investment”, it also has the potential to add considerable dollar value to your property, more so than any other room.
There is no doubt that the kitchen is the centre piece for many homes and one worth investing in to get it right.
