Your kitchen makes a wry face, is a bit shabby or sorely lacks pep. You would like to change it, but engaging yourself in a large-scale remodeling venture  is not appropriate for your situation.. Give your kitchen a second youth with these 10 decorative tips and you will see it in a different light.

1. A healthy glow

It’s a classic: change the color of the walls! And don’t hesitate to use a bold color to awaken your kitchen walls. No need to repaint everything, at the risk of stifling it visually, but rather it’s better to do  a single wall. To give it a real “presence,” choose a strong color such as crimson, lime yellow or purple.

2. A second life for closets

Tired of your cupboards’ fronts ? Without replacing them, you can use adhesive paper to liven them up. A simple and inexpensive solution is to dress them up by cutting an adhesive sheet to size and apply it directly on the facade. As long as you don’t have any mouldings on your cabinets, it’s perfect for a quick and new contemporary style.

3.Start sorting

Now that you have nice closets, a large storage room is required. Start by sorting out your stuff and discarding anything that is odd. Do the sorting in your pantry and cabinets. You will save space!

4.Rethink your organization

Good plain advice: everything that you use the most often has to be in front of the closet. You shouldn’t have to move everything every time you want to use it. Salt, pepper, and spices should be close and right at hand.. Amazon.com offers small round boxes with lids that are clear in order to see the contents and which magnetize right onto the refrigerator or onto a metal credenza. We brought a nice selection of spice racks here as well. selection of spice racks here.

5.Focus on key accessories

A decorative detail that makes all the difference immediately: the handles of cupboards. You can assign a different style just by changing them. To produce a metallic adhesive effect, get some long zinc handles with a contemporary style. For the opposite, choose cerused wooden buttons for a country house style.

6.Use colorful appliances

After painting your wall, continue to use color, but onto your work surface this time. For example, invest in a blender, a toaster or an espresso machine in the same color. Manufacturers have understood this and nowadays each robot, fridge and toaster comes in various colo

7.Take care of your lighting

You can change the atmosphere of a room through lighting. These small LED lights are easy to use. Just stick them under your cabinets and they light up by a touch. Place them under cabinets to chase away the shadows and open up the space visually. Some are even adjustable and can be placed inside cupboards to illuminate when you open it

8.Let your walls speak

Decorate your walls with different frames! Use large industrial-style letters and create words like “Yum Yum”, “Bon appetite” or “Glacier”. And complete your expression box by painting on a wall a wide band that goes from floor to ceiling, with blackboard paint. Two coats are necessary for a clear result. Then it only remains to write the recipe for your last chocolate cake, your shopping list or the daily menu.

9.Warm the floor up

Cold tiles are out! Cover your floor with a long mat and place it preferably close to the sink. Another solution is to invest in PVC flooring. The new models are very decorative. Stones, limestone floor, weed imitation… They all  set the scene alone and are inexpensive.

10.Make your kitchen breathe

It’s always good to keep your kitchen tidy. But cooking sometimes leave  persistent odors, so remember to ventilate for 5 minutes every day, even on cold days, to renew the air.
