Yet Another Kitchen Re-design Idea
So, I’ve been thinking for a while now…and quite frankly has been bothering me. The kitchen, for some reason, is still missing something. I just think it could be better than it is. Dont get me wrong, its come a long way and I love it! I’ve just been obsessing over how much nicer it would look if I only had stainless steel appliances! That’s what I originally intended on having when I visualized this beautiful white kitchen with wood countertops and floors, but right now we can’t afford $2,000 appliances. I just feel now that the kitchen is too white, and am trying to come up with creative ways to add some color and pizzaz to the place, without forking out a ton of money.
I’ll share what I’m thinking so far:
The current “fad” is chalkboard paint. It’s everywhere! On doors, walls, dressers, even refridgerators! So I thought how cool would it be to add it up above the cupboards and write in different fonts and languages “to eat.” This would add some color, texture, and a little bit of a “wordly” feel to the kitchen. I think I will give it a try in the next few days and let you know how it turns out. The worst thing that can happen is it doesn’t quite work out, and I paint over it with another color.
Some other thoughts: take off the cabinet doors on either side of the oven, and have open shelves with some beautiful colored decor.
Any other tips are definitely welcome!
