Accessories for your cabinets: Door pulls; crown molding and wine racks can be added to your cabinets for a finished style. For homes that prefer simplicity, long slender door pulls should be considered. To save money, have your cabinets installed by a professional, and do the door pulls yourself. Home improvement stores have a wide selection, as well as custom hardware can be ordered online and installed by you for a fraction of a professional installer. Accessories can take your cabinets from ordinary to one-of-a-kind!
Lack of Counter Space, You’ve reclaimed some counter space, but do you still feel like it’s not enough? That’s a common issue. We have ideas for maximizing (and even adding) more counter space to your small kitchen, including a trick for turning your sink into a cutting board (pictured above).
We’ve put together some small-kitchen decorating ideas that tackle the following issues with good design solutions. The three most common small-kitchen complaints are clutter, lack of counter space and a dark kitchen.
When spending a lot of money on a remodel you’ll want to create a space you love, but if you’re planning on selling at some point you’ll also want to secure a return on your investment (you’ll also want to like the room yourself 20 years from now as your tastes change).
Open Shelving Using open shelving instead of upper cabinets can be a great way to add a dual-tone look to your kitchen. This also makes it easy to change up the color, as you can simply repaint the wall behind the shelves instead of the cabinets. It’s also a great way to showcase your favorite tableware.
Add LED strip lights to shelves and under your cabinets to illuminate your counter space; simply peel, stick and plug in. Replace incandescent light bulbs with the latest energy-efficient versions. Choose pendant lights that can be clipped onto existing track-lighting systems to layer your room’s lighting. Replace outdated light fixtures. Add a mirror to a kitchen wall or consider adding a mirrored backsplash to reflect light.
