A kitchen is undoubtedly one of the most important spaces in every home. It is also the place that has the most amount of visual impact. If you look at it, a kitchen contains many ordinary everyday equipment such as cabinets and shelves. The onus is on you to bring these mundane things to life! And with the following list of tips and tricks, you can make your kitchen look expensive in a few hours! Read on to learn how to choose the best designs for your kitchen interior if you’re on a tight budget!
1. Choose the perfect layout!
There are many types of interiors available for the kitchen. Interior design reflects one’s personality and character. Also, the interiors can give a really positive look on the whole kitchen. A kitchen must have enough space inside to allow a lot of air, and the lighting must be done so that the whole setup is brightly lit. Color temperature also determines the type of colors you see since colors tend to change shade when viewed under different color temperatures.
2. Splurge on the good stuff!
Knowing when and what to splurge on is the mark of a true designer. Consider investing in backsplashes and cabinets because this is what will count in the long run! Backsplashes and cabinets allow you to show your personality and style in the truest sense of the words. So, splurge on the things that will make a difference!
3. Choose height over aesthetics!
When choosing a layout for your kitchen, do not, I repeat, do not go for cupboard stocks that are short. When thinking long term, choose cupboards that are tall enough. For example, 42 inches will be more useful and can store more products. The choice of height again adds another layer of visual styling to your kitchen. Reduced cupboards also give a cramped feeling to the whole kitchen.
4. The devil is in the details!
When designing your kitchen, the one thing you absolutely cannot ignore is the hardware. Whoever said that the devil is in the details was a genius! Kitchen hardware is a sure way to add elegance and warmth to your kitchen and give it a luxurious look. You can pick up authentic and traditional hardware pieces at flea markets if you have a budget. Good quality and expensive are not exactly synonymous. So, try to spend some time considering the minute details as this is what makes all the difference!
5. Keep your thoughts on “long term”!
One of the disadvantages of going full on current trends is that trends change. When that happens, your contemporary graphics look lackluster. The best way to be in style without having to rearrange now and then is to add a few elements that remain classic no matter the year. Strong lines and classic curves are all timeless designs that are bound to make your interior look its best!
6. Light up your kitchen!
When you first enter the kitchen, the first thing that strikes you is the light. It is equally true that people usually check the limits for the types of lights installed in the kitchens. Investing in a few cheap but luxurious light fixtures can sometimes be all the design you need in your kitchen. Go for stunning lighting fixtures in the most important places such as on the islands and the sink. Add a hanging light over the breakfast nook to give your kitchen an expensive look!
Food for thought
Investing in a few small things and making smart decisions is key to designing your kitchen if you’re on a budget. Plus, you can make it look super expensive with just a few touches without burning a hole in your pocket! Ironic, huh?
