Renovate your kitchen with these design hacks and get that luxe look in seconds.
Undoubtedly kitchens have become the focal point of every house – a space where you can flaunt your taste, lifestyle and class. No longer are kitchens spaces of pure functionality but aesthetics have found their way here too. Therefore paying attention design, layout and colour is quite critical.
Your kitchen must have every element from fun to functional and from conventional to contemporary. And most importantly, it must have a luxe touch to it.
Renovating a kitchen to look expensive can be pretty daunting. But with the right tips and tricks you can achieve your goal without sweating. Here are seven ideas to renovate your kitchen and give it a rich touch!
Neutral Shades Scream Luxury
You can give your kitchen an instant transformation with a fresh coat of colour. Lighter shades such as champagne, beige and pastel hues are the choice of the wealthy. If you own a modular kitchen with lots of cabinets and storage options consider darker colours such as charcoal and teal that blend well with the overall aesthetics and make your kitchen look lavish. On the other hand, if you are tight on space then consider a white colour scheme. White reflects light and will make your kitchen look spacious. If you don’t wish to paint your entire kitchen, you can paint the cabinets for a noticeable change. A background wall can add more value to your kitchen while wallpaper is a budget friendly option.
Gift Your Cabinet A New Knob
If you are content with your existing cabinets and shelves upgrade your kitchen with modern fixtures. Bring in new handles, door pulls and hinges with decorative pieces in startling hues. Just ensure to pick pieces that fit your cabinets right. And don’t be afraid to mix metals, and unlacquered brass or shiny nickel. Simple and easy on the pocket too!
Give Your Backsplash A Makeover
Backsplashes make quite the statement to kitchens. After cabinets, this is where you should put your money if you want to upgrade your kitchen. It’s a great tool to boast of your style and taste as well. Go crazy and play with colours or textures like herringbone, concrete or penny tiles.
Lavish Lighting Spells Luxury Like No Other
Lights are often the most neglected element while designing a kitchen. You won’t be able to get a completely luxurious look with tardy light fixtures. Low hanging lights create an illusion of a higher ceiling, especially above kitchen counters, islands, and adjoining dining areas. Pendant lights too are a great option and you can use a pair or a cluster. Dimmers are another way to make your kitchen look expensive. Dim lights at dinner time bring in a warm, moody glow for an intimate atmosphere.
Let Marble Do Its Magic
Who doesn’t fancy marble in their kitchen? It adds elegance and gives the place a splash of luxury. If you do not have marble countertops, do not worry! A few hacks can help you use this material for its inherent purpose – luxury! All you need to do is add small hints of it to your current kitchen. A pre-cut piece of marble can give you a tiny baking space in your kitchen. You can use marble tiles to make a chic backsplash or use them to remodel a portion of the kitchen floor. Moreover, marble goes well with almost every colour palette and adding a little of it can make your kitchen look way more expensive.
Add Modular Cabinets
If you are a proud owner of dull wooden cabinets, shelves made of stones, it’s time to shift to modular kitchen units. They are multifunctional, come with plenty of storage options, adds a statement to your kitchen and makes your kitchen look expensive. Investing in a modular kitchen unit is something to consider if you want to make a grand statement.
Include A Kitchen Island Cum Breakfast Bar!
If you follow reality cooking shows, you would have noticed that every modern or expensive-looking kitchen has an island or breakfast bar that makes it stand out. Put your dead floor space to use and introduce one in your kitchen and notice an instant change. And don’t forget to consider a marble countertop for that magically luxurious look.
