Inexpensive Kitchen Decorating

Inexpensive Kitchen Decorating

Kitchens are a popular area to decorate and remodel. Whether you are looking to increase the value of you home to put it on the market or are just looking to add some life to this area where you spend so much of your time there are some inexpensive kitchen decorating ideas that will help you achieve the results you desire without emptying your purse or wallet.

Try using a new color of paint. Sometimes a simple coat of paint can transform the entire look and feel of a room. You can paint the walls and, depending on your cabinets, you may want to paint them as well. Try some bright colors to make the area come alive. Yellow tones are making a come-back and reds are a popular choice. Do not be afraid to try something different with paint.

Lighting has an amazing affect of the feel of a room. Dull lighting dampens the area and can make it feel drab. Even using brighter bulbs can help open up the area. Brighter lights combined with a bright paint can take your kitchen from dull to lively. Don’t forget to throw some accent lighting in key areas. Light strips under cabinets are a popular choice.

Turning a cabinet into a showcase for a collection you own can work for some kitchens. Replace opaque cabinet doors with glass doors allow people to see inside. You can also, completely, remove the doors. Use this area to display your pottery or china that might be a family heirloom. Throw a few pictures or fake fruit on the shelves to break any monotony.

Changing the hardware on cabinets and drawers is often over-looked during inexpensive kitchen decorating. You can get new handles and hinges at a hardware store and change the whole look of your cabinetry. Combining this with a new paint job creates the look of new cabinets with only a fraction of the cost associated with new cabinets.

Adding some plants or flowers in the kitchen area can bring nature into the house. This will add a lively feel to any room and just may grow into a new hobby.

These are some basic ideas that can change the entire look and feel of any kitchen. Use your imagination and you can transform your kitchen into an inviting bistro on any budget. Decorating a kitchen does not need to be an expensive undertaking.
