Your kitchen is, arguably, one of the most expensive rooms to redecorate. The fancy ones tend to include the newest appliances and stainless steel fridges that you can fit a small family into – so how are we supposed to get the kind of kitchen we want?
Luckily, there are a few ways to ensure a beautiful and functional kitchen without having to break the bank on expensive appliances. Here are a couple of elements you should try to fit in while saving up for that enormous fridge so that you can start to enjoy it a bit more.
It makes it a bit easier to reach your decorating goals as well, by the way, now that you won’t have to wait with fixing up that kitchen.
First: Change up the backsplash
The backsplash seems to be the one area of the kitchen where showing off is not only acceptable but even necessary. Because the space is so small, you can treat yourself to tiles that are a bit fancier without having to spend too much money and you can even consider getting a bit creative with the space.
Start by having a look at this site, for example, to get your imagination going and dream about the enormous lift the backsplash can give your kitchen.
Next: Get natural stone flooring
Sure, this one is a bit of a bigger project than simply changing out the backsplash but natural stone flooring is perfect for a modern kitchen. If you want it to look even more elegant, you should go for a natural stone floor in grey and choose stainless steel for the rest of your appliances in order to make it work together.
Keep in mind that natural stone needs to be treated right, though, and you should learn how to clean it so that it stays beautiful for a bit longer – or you can just hire a hard floor cleaning company to take care of it for you.
Just remember to clean up any spills immediately so that it doesn’t absorb into the floor and focus on keeping it as dry as possible.
Bring in a few plants
While the tip above may be a bit expensive, the next one is really affordable. Plants will lift your space and make it look both a bit more luxurious and modern. Think about how much sun your kitchen receives, though, and choose plants according to this; dying plants will definitely work against the kind of look you’re going for.
Herbs are also a great addition to your kitchen, by the way, and certainly a perfect addition to your food. Most herbs prefer sunny conditions, though, so hang or place them by the window so that they stay fresh and available to be used in cooking.
While both a new floor and a new backsplash can do a lot for your kitchen, there is no easier way to take things to the next level than putting your plants and herbs on display. Just make sure to keep them alive and healthy-looking and they will do the same for your kitchen.
