Schedules, appointments and meals-on-the-go are some of the primary reasons why we let our kitchens (or homes in general) go to lame wasteland. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to perk up your home, and more specifically your ktichen, for minimal time, energy and effort.
Colour changes, unique shelving units, DIY projects and special accessories are all some of the ways we've listed below for you to customise your kitchen, not only to add some personality, but also to make it more efficient and interesting. Check out our seven great options below and start feeling inspired. No more entertaining or eating in a lame ktichen after today, we promise.
For a quick update to your kitchen, add some unique exposed shelving. This tiny assembly of shelves over the countertops and sink is a perfect way to display colourful cups, plates and jars.
Do a lot of entertaining or have a large family to feed? A chalkboard wall is a great way to organise menus and remind yourself of what you need from the store. Simply purchase chalkboard paint and get going.
Durable, sustainable and mess-resistant – wooden countertops are great for those looking to keep to a budget and add a rustic/modern look to their otherwise contemporary kitchen.
This tiny, rustic kitchen is what you would imagine a European cottage to come equipped with, and simple DIY projects can shape of the space and make it more fun and modern. DIY wine bottle lights (especially in green) are perfect here!
Sure, marble can be expensive – but what about purchasing faux marble or a marble overlay for the same look?
Changing colours can make a world of difference in any kitchen, no matter what size. For an invigorating and modern kitchen, why not try a monochromatic colour scheme like seen here? White subway tiles and black pendant lights are easy, affordable and add a permanent change!
Simply adding some fresh herbs and plants (even succuluents) is a great way to make your kitchen unique, fresh and lively. Potted plants are best and for smaller kitchens, stick with interesting wall hanging schemes.
