Stuck with a generic kitchen?
Perhaps you are renting an apartment and your contract limits you in terms of what and how much work you can do to revamp the look of your kitchen. Or maybe you have recently purchased a home and you do not have enough money to start a kitchen makeover.
Whatever the reason may be, you do not have to be stuck with a generic, boring-looking kitchen.
Here are four key ways to personalise a generic kitchen.
Play with the colours
Changing the colours of your kitchen is one of the easiest way to transform its look. Use bright colours that can remind you of the vibrancy of fresh produce while stimulating your senses. Opt for bright hues like yellow, red and purple. If you wish to use neutral colours, you can add life and energy by using bright colours for accessories, decor and appliances.
Generate interest with a kitchen island or cart
Kitchen islands or carts can double as a focal visual point and as extra storage. It can also help you show off your personal taste. Choose a faux marble top to match your white kitchen cabinet or an island or cart with a rustic finish to match the wood beams in the kitchen. Or you can go bold and choose an island or cart with a different style or finish. Just remember to find an element that connects it with the other pieces in the kitchen.
Stock the kitchen with personal favourites
Use your own personal interest and style to guide you in choosing which elements to add to your kitchen. It can be as simple as adding one accessory at a time, especially if your budget is limited.
Display your favourite dishware prominently or stock your wine rack with your favourite wines or sodas.
Bring plants into the kitchen
Another way to add colour, energy and vibrancy in the kitchen is to strategically place potted plants around. As an added bonus, you can improve the air quality in the kitchen. Consider using herbs that do well indoors or consult your local plant nursery about which indoor plants you can use in your kitchen.
