Give your modular kitchen an upscale avatar with these clever, easy-on-the-pocket decor tips and tricks.
If you’ve always dreamt of owning a Michelin-star-worthy cooking oasis, consider your wish granted. With these modular kitchen ideas, employ clever decorative sleight of hand techniques to turn your cooking area into a high-end harbour of culinary dreams.
Update your pulls and knobs
Your hardware can instantly elevate your room, taking it from spartan to swish in moments. Consider updating your cabinets and kitchen furniture with decorative knobs pulls and handles (these are available aplenty online and in home decor stores). Go for muted minimalism with monochrome designs, or introduce pops of colour with vivid hardware that straddles the spectrum. Either way, watch your kitchen interior design come alive with whimsical charm.
Go for a neutral palette
The most expensive looking homes all have one thing in common – their palette. Light colours on the walls, ceiling and furniture can inject luminosity and lustre into your kitchen, and introduce a ritzy sheen. Also, light colours can do well in masking blemishes and imperfections on your walls, and marks, stains and scratches on your furniture.
Facelift your cabinets
Replace time-worn cabinet doors with newer, contemporary ones. Alternatively, call in a carpenter and find out whether your existing doors could profit from a solid sanding down and refinishing, to achieve a swish new look. Outfit your doors in glass or high-gloss finishes to introduce sleek sophistication, and use open shelving to create a darling display unit that spells effortless allure.
Install statement lighting
Oh, the magic of luminaires. There’s not enough to be said about these wondrous decor pieces. Glam up your kitchen with sparkling chandeliers and pendants to create a tony, hotel-esque ambience. A single statement fixture can add sculptural appeal to a characterless kitchen, so it’s a good idea to select a piece rooted in artistic style.
Artwork in your kitchen can be the perfect way to channel your inner art aficionado and give your cooking area the air of an upscale restaurant. Experiment with bigger, bolder frames to breathe artistic vibes into your space. This is a great option for renters with limited decor choices.
Dress up your windows
Add charming kitchen sashes and custom drapes to your kitchen windows, to align your aesthetic with the rest of your home. Gauzy sheers can be dreamy options during the winter, while more substantial materials like cotton and linen can make for more practical options during the warmer months. Scour home decor stores and online marketplaces for kitchen curtain designs that sing to you. Designs featuring sugar pots and coffee jars, croissants and cupcakes, for instance, can make lovely accompaniments to your existing decor pieces.
Craft a kitchen vignette
Fresh flowers, whimsical vases and glass jars can take your kitchen style up several notches. Replace your traditional storage devices with glass and ceramic holders to give your storage a stylistic spin. Place your little wares in an aesthetic arrangement to add heart to your kitchen decor.
Combine form and function
Kitchens are one of the most hardworking and hard-wearing spaces of a home, so naturally, they’re tailored for function. However, that doesn’t mean you need to overlook the aesthetic aspects of your kitchen. Build form into function by employing elements that look good and serve your purpose. Replace your metal vegetable rack with a gilded alternative, invest in pretty fruit bowls and swap out your steel tins for luminous glass jars. You’ll be amazed at the difference your little upgrades make!
Cluttering your counters with appliances can be a surefire way to pull your kitchen down. Designate storage spots for your toaster, mixer, sandwich maker, coffee maker and other appliances. Pull them out when you want to use them and slide them in when you’re done. And in turn, give your kitchen an airy and clutter-free look. Voila, it’s that simple!
If you’re yearning to breathe high-end vibes into your cooking area, there’s no better time than now. With a little illusion, you can make your kitchen look like a million dollars without squandering your savings. Get started with these ideas.
