The kitchen is the heart of any home. It’s where we spend our time cooking, eating, and relaxing with friends and family. That doesn’t mean it has to be a place that looks like you’re in a hospital waiting room. There are three important design secrets that can make your kitchen look amazing without breaking the bank:
Utilize Natural Light
When designing your new layout, keep windows in mind. A large window allows for an abundance of natural light to pour into the space which will give off a warm glow throughout the day and evening hours.
Think About the Layout
One of the biggest mistakes people make when designing their kitchen is not thinking about the traffic flow. Make sure there is enough space for people to move around comfortably and that all of your appliances are easily accessible.
Don’t forget about storage! You’ll need plenty of cabinets and drawers to store all your pots, pans, spices, and utensils. Roll-out trays are a great option for storage and organization.
Mix it Up
The best way to keep your kitchen looking fresh is by mixing different styles. This can be accomplished in various ways, for example:
• Mixing cabinet types
• Adding metallic finishes or backsplashes
• Inserting a vintage twist using metal pieces that are covered with patina finishings.
