As we progress further into 2022, let’s strive to make it our year. It has been the norm to set resolutions at the beginning of every year. But sadly that is how they always stay, as resolutions. We do not put in the necessary time and effort to realize them.
This year should be different, you should start a plan as early as now that will help you to fulfill your resolutions.
Many of us had a home makeover as one of our resolutions for 2022. Due to financial setbacks, the total renovation of the house may be an absurd idea at this time. So we are going to guide you on how you can remodel the focal point of your home, the kitchen.
A fresh coat of paint always has a way of totally transforming a place into something more beautiful. The first step of remodeling your kitchen is by painting it. There are many places to start from; the kitchen cabinets, kitchen countertops, and finally the walls. You can undertake this part by yourself, set one of the weekends, buy a couple of paint gallons and paintbrushes and you are good to go.
This is a good opportunity for family bonding too. Choose color themes that you desire but ensure that they will blend in with the rest of the kitchen decor. Choose preferably warm colors to set the relaxing ambiance you desire.
Upgrade The Kitchen Appliances
For any change or transformation to happen, we need to do away with the old. Rustic homeowners and interior designers would probably prefer to keep everything in their kitchen old and rustic. Technological advancements occur every day, these advancements affect each and every aspect of our lives.
From using smoke to preserve foods we now use sleek refrigerators, so sooner or later you would have to try and keep up with the times or get left behind.
Kitchen appliances are being developed at an amazing pace. Just the other day magnetic cookers and pans that could prepare food in under two minutes were designed. Apart from the improved efficiency, modern appliances also have a cool sleek design that will make your kitchen more stylish.
Introduce A Kitchen Island
A kitchen island is arguably the best kitchen fixture. Their cool design enhances the aesthetics of your kitchen. Your kitchen should not be a place for cooking only, it should be a place where you can relax and just sit reminiscing. Furthermore, cooking is an art and thus it has to be done in a tasteful place.
Apart from just sitting there and being beautiful, a kitchen island could also work as both a kitchen countertop and a storage space. This will increase the open space in your kitchen, you would not have to stack up more cabinets against the world. The airy and open space will make your kitchen look more attractive.
Decorate Your Kitchen
The kitchen like any other part of your home deserves to be decorated. Introduce flowers and house plants as they always bring a calm atmosphere. The flowers or plants should be grown ornately designed vases to complement the beautiful look. There are also cheaper DIY vases or pots that could house the flowers and plants.
Decorate the jars and other things that you use to store spices and other stuff that you need around the kitchen. Use kitchen utensils also, buy beautiful sets of china and creatively designed plates. Display these in open shelved cabinets for all and sundry to see, place a welcoming rug at the kitchen door to complete the perfect look.
Open Up Your Kitchen
There are some people who prefer to have their kitchen space all to themselves. They do not want people all up in their business when they are trying to follow a cookbook and coming up with a delicious meal. This should not be the case, open up your kitchen, involve your children in the meal preparation. Assign them roles like chopping onions or kneading the dough.
Introduce comfortable seats at the kitchen countertop or island where the whole family can enjoy meals together. Light up the kitchen better by using skylights, overhead island lights, led lights, and even natural light. Turn your kitchen into one of the favorite hangouts of your home.
These are the ways that you could go about remodeling your kitchen. But this is only the tip of the iceberg, check out kitchen ideas for 2022 to get more innovative ideas.
