On the contrary to what people believe, you don’t necessarily spend a fortune when doing the kitchen transformation work. Transforming your kitchen doesn’t always mean that you should remodel it. Sometimes, replacing the old items with a new one or changing the layout will make your kitchen look different. Adding something new will also create a different atmosphere and flair to the kitchen. In this way, you don’t have to spend a fortune just to make your kitchen look better – without compromising the functionality.
Open Shelves Design
In the event that you have finally decided to create a focal point in your kitchen, the overall management doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. In most cases, homeowners may choose to hang a big piece of artistic wall decor, like a painting. But what if you don’t have such a big artistic item, anyway? No need to worry, you can always add layers to the focal point wall. And layers can be achieved by having the open shelves.
Open shelves are getting popular these days – mostly because they are flexible, trendy, and they make the kitchen look bigger. Not to mention that they are super functional. They can provide storage space by making use of the available space on the wall, and you can definitely free up the space on the countertop. You can also create layers by installing the floating shelves. You can have two or three stacks of layered shelves where the most upper shelf can be used for keeping cookware that is rarely used. Creating layers by having the open floating shelves is one thing to do for the kitchen transformation project.
Chalkboard Creative Design
Do you realize that you can do a lot of things with the chalkboard paint? You can create a personalized design on your wall – you can create a space for your grocery list, the daily menu, and even the space for the kids to scribble. You only need to buy a can of the paint – whether it is small or big. Choose a focal point in your kitchen and paint the wall with the chalkboard paint. The design or pattern is up to you – you can paint the whole wall or only a part of it. If you don’t have enough space on your wall, you can apply it on your cabinet (you can choose one of the cabinet) or on your door.
Some homeowners are pretty creative in this kitchen transformation work. They paint the entire kitchen island (except for the countertop surface) so you can have the entire kitchen island that can be written on. Quite unique, eh?
Gallery Wall Design
No matter how good or artistic your kitchen is, it won’t matter if you don’t include any of your personality to the decor. One way to achieve the promising result is to design your own gallery wall. Your gallery wall can be incorporated through various things. You can include your favorite painting or any artistic pieces. You can also include the family photos. The decision is yours. As you can see, managing your own personal kitchen transformation work isn’t too hard, is it?
