The Perfect Kitchen: How Does Yours Compare?
There is such thing as the perfect kitchen and it could be yours if you follow our example. Read our post and get to work!
We’re not excessively picky, but if we had to choose a room that we wanted to shine out in sheer perfection, it’d definitely be the kitchen. We spend a lot of time there preparing meals to nourish our family, cooking, cleaning and having stove-side heart-to-hearts. But if the kitchen’s a disaster, chaos is bound to break loose. So, how about achieving the perfect kitchen?
Creating a perfect kitchen step-by-step
While everyone has a personal preference for kitchen decor styles, there are certain elements worth considering to create a perfect kitchen no matter your style. In our post today, we’ll fill you in on those keys.
Space-saving counters and cabinets
Unless you’re one of the lucky ones that have a big kitchen (in which case you probably wouldn’t be reading this), you likely dream about a having one when storing away all of your kitchen items and appliances.
Small electric appliances, pots, pans, dishware, glasses, food… there are simply too many things for one space. This is exactly why counters and cabinets with good storage options are so important. Whether you have a mini-kitchen or one that includes creative storage and organization solutions, the right kitchen counters and cabinets are a key to success.
In addition to these, you can use the walls to your advantage and set up rails to hang cooking items or pots with herbs that decorate and liven up your kitchen.
Ideally, sunlight would flood into your kitchen. But we know that it’s not always possible, so instead make sure to create the best lighting possible. You need a well-lit workspace without shadows that can help you avoid accidents. Warm lighting works better as it will create a cozier setting.
While the materials will ultimately depend on your personal preference, create a plan first and make sure your kitchen decor is harmonious. If you want a wooden kitchen, make sure your accessories match accordingly and plan out the main and complementary colors.
If you have a micro-cement kitchen, stay focused on the decor style that you want to create. Micro-cement offers plenty of possibilities like rustic or industrial decor.
Keep your home appliances out-of-sight
The perfect kitchen will never be cluttered with cooking gadgets or other items that could break the decor harmony. We suggest building your appliances into paneled counters or cabinets to create a more spacious setting.
Break down walls
Opening up your kitchen is a wonderful idea. You could completely tear down dividing walls or use a window, with or without glass, to connect it with your dining room. Besides being a hot home trend, it’ll also allow you to decorate with more personal detail, especially if you’re short on space.
Create a small bar area for breakfast or to engage in conversation with your guests as you prepare a delicious dinner. Don’t worry about the smells of food wafting throughout your home; you can find great smoke hoods on the market. Check out everything you need to know about opening up your kitchen.
Invest in decor
Instead of buying random kitchen towels, choose ones that match the decor. Look for porcelain pieces and, depending on your preferences, natural fiber or metal baskets that are cute and match your kitchen colors and decor.
Voila, the perfect kitchen: beautiful, practical, organized and well-lit. Keep these pointers in mind and you can achieve perfection, too.
