On average, homeowners spend $19,100 on their kitchen renovation. Yet it’s not always necessary or possible to do a complete renovation.
In fact, more often than not, a redecoration project is all your kitchen needs. Here are the top three tips on redecorating your kitchen in a quick, affordable way.
1. Pick a Focal Point
The first thing to think about when redecorating your kitchen is what you want the focal point to be.
Imagine walking into the kitchen for the first time. Where do your eyes go first? Make that spot and the closest adjoining wall your new focal point.
Focal points are meant to be bold and eye-catching. You want a focal point to draw the eye to a pleasant spot each time anyone enters your space.
There are various ways to make a focal point.
You could paint your focal wall a bold shade that is different from the rest of the kitchen. Hot pink, neon blue, there’s no way to do this wrong. Or you can also use wallpaper to achieve the same boldness.
You might also want to hang a large piece of art on your focal wall.
Another possibility is to make the stove hood the focal point. Is your hood is hanging on carved corbels (also known as supporting brackets) over a backsplash and stove?
Well, that is an easy and obvious choice as your focal point.
2. Paint it Up
A couple of coats of paints can totally transform a room. This is especially true in the kitchen.
Here are some fun and unexpected ways you can play with color.
Painted floors are trending right now. When redecorating your kitchen on a budget, this is an easy choice. All you need is some pretty colors and some painter’s tape.
Goodbye, boring floors, and hello refreshed new space.
You can take redecorating your kitchen to the next level by including your ceilings. People often forget about ceilings. But they can be an incredible canvas to add flair and elegance to your space.
When you paint your ceilings, be sure to keep some white walls in the space to keep your room color balanced.
Pop of Color
If you aren’t quite ready to be uber bold on a wall, you can still make a statement. Paint the inside of your cabinets a fun hue.
It’ll make you smile each time you reach in for a glass.
3. Finishing Touches
A little known secret about how to redecorate your kitchen is to focus on the little details. You don’t have to do a major overhaul to make an impact.
Small things like updating your hardware, spice, or knife rack can make a difference. If you have clutter on the counter, make it look pretty by putting it in coordinating jars or woven baskets. Adding in wooden wine racks to an empty corner also works.
When finalizing your redecorating plan, be sure to use a variety of materials. Different shades of wood and matte and glossy surfaces work together to make a cohesive look that isn’t matchy-matchy.
