Whether you are getting your house ready to sell, moving into a new home, or just looking for a way to spruce up your kitchen, don't underestimate the power these design elements from Houzz.com.
1. Add a range backsplash.
The space between the stovetop and the vent hood presents a design opportunity — a chance to incorporate a ceramic work of art or a mosaic that stands out from the rest of the backsplash.
2. Don’t get stuck in the expected kitchen furniture rut.
Opt for something that you wouldn't normally see in a kitchen.
3. Create an accent wall.
Mosaic tiles, wallpaper, and paint can be great ways to achieve this.
4. Take chances with large-scale elements.
Large vintage letters or a light fixture can work very well.
5. Consider two-tone cabinets.
You might think a smaller kitchen needs the cohesiveness of one color on the cabinetry, but a different color on the lower cabinets can add interest and some much-needed color to a room.
6. Grow some fresh ingredients indoors.
The shelves across a window provide plenty of sunlight for herbs. It’s a design moment that allows for fresh snippings for cooking within a few feet of the range.
7. Re-purpose something unique into a kitchen island.
8. Consider color for your appliances.
Colorful ranges were once something that could run you more than a luxury car, but thanks to their rising popularity, many more reasonable options are available these days.
9. Find a good way to display your collections.
A recessed cabinet with glass doors is an update on a classic china cabinet, and can display a collection of traditional objects beautifully.
10. Think beyond typical kitchen light fixtures.
Recessed lights and pendants are great, but an ornate brass chandelier can really make a kitchen.
