If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen and want it to reflect your personality, these ideas to help perk up the space will help you. Some people like really clean, modern looking kitchens, but other people like to incorporate a bit of interest and personality into the design. Here are some ideas that will help you to perk up your kitchen:
Create A Fun Backsplash
A backsplash in the kitchen is the perfect excuse to have some fun and play with color and pattern. This is the bit behind the oven that stops you from having to clean up too much after cooking something a little messy. It’s usually pretty simple to do, and you can find so many videos and tutorials online to help you create one yourself. Use your imagination and have fun with something like this.
Include Cool Accessories
Don’t be afraid to include some fun and different accessories in your kitchen. Even if your kitchen is all white/neutral, adding some fun accessories can be a great way to perk things up without making too much of a commitment to a new color scheme. You could have quirky salt and pepper shakers, a colorful knife set, and anything else you can find that will complement your kitchen.
Make A Statement
Don’t be afraid to make a statement in your kitchen. You could add a standout art piece, a quote, wall sticker, or something else to help you make a statement. You could even add a lightbox, or something similarly cool and quirky.
Update Your Sides/Cabinets
It’s pretty easy to update your sides and cabinets without putting too much effort in. You can buy laminate and other tools to help you refinish your cabinets, and you’ll get a realistic look too.
Replace Your Hardware
Replacing your hardware is another really simple way to perk up your kitchen. How about swapping your handles, taps, and light fittings? This can completely change the look of your kitchen to something you’re really happy with.
Use Playful Prints
Playful prints are the perfect way to perk things up and give your kitchen character. Some people like to do this on their blinds, for instance, but you can even include playful prints on your furniture, tea towels, and other accessories.
Mix Up Your Furniture
Don’t be boring and buy one entire furniture set. Mix up your furniture instead! For example, you can mix up the chairs around your kitchen table. Have two that match of each type if you like, to avoid anything looking too out of place.
Life in the kitchen is crucial if you want to avoid making it look drab. You can add flowers, plants, and fruit, to help you. You can even use fake plants and fruit for minimal effort and no need to replace them all the time. Just make sure they look realistic!
