Are you getting tired of looking at your old kitchen appliances and dated kitchen cabinets?
Then it is probably time to consider changing your kitchen and making it new again. But before you dive right in, consider looking at the latest trends in kitchen designs to determine what you need to do to spruce up your space and make it look more modern and chic rather than boring and average.
To really make your kitchen stand out, consider adding some of these new design elements and kitchen appliances and features.
Colors for Your Walls
Painting your walls should be a consideration you make whenever you are attempting to make your kitchen better than ever. Because there is usually only a limited amount of wall space in a kitchen, it is the perfect room to experiment with bright, bold colors that you normally would not dare to put on the walls in other rooms where they would be too overpowering.
Whether you go with a bright color like a golden yellow or you go for a burnt orange or a clay color, you can really make the walls stand out from the rest of the cabinets, especially if they are dark, as well as from your appliances, which are usually stainless steel or black.
Make Your Countertops Safer
Earth-friendly design elements are more popular than ever. When it comes to countertops and tabletops where you prepare your food and eat it, you want them to be as safe for your health as possible.
Bamboo products are not only sustainable, they also look great and they are formaldehyde-free, meaning you will not be exposing yourself or your family to any toxins as you prepare your favorite meals.
Incorporate Eco-Friendly Appliances
From eco-friendly dishwashers to faucets, you can go even further with your earth-friendly kitchen than ever before. Energy Star appliances are a great way to go, as they will save you money on your energy bill by using up less electricity.
And today’s eco-friendly solutions work just as well, if not better, than conventional models, so there is no reason to not make the switch if you are revamping your kitchen.
If you have ever hated the fact that you needed to use your dirty hands to turn on the faucet to wash them, then the latest touch-sensitive faucets are the answer to your problems. All you need to do is tap the faucet to turn it on and then tap it again to turn it off. It is so simple, it is more hygienic, and the modern styles make it the perfect addition to a kitchen that has been redone to be an example of 21st century innovation and design.
Updating any room in your house can be a lot of fun, but it does take time. When it comes to kitchens, interior designers consider everything from the walls to the appliances in order to breathe new life into the space, rather than merely focusing on updating kitchen cabinets like most people do.
