Spending time in your kitchen allows you to cook homemade meals for your family. So, you may use the space every day regardless of how its looks. But you might want to improve the appearance to boost your satisfaction and make the room more appealing to your family.
Hiring professionals to remodel your kitchen is a smart plan, especially when you are determined to add character and beauty to the space.
An easy project to work on to accomplish your goals is adding or changing the backsplash. This feature is where you have a ton of flexibility because you can choose from a variety of colors, designs, materials, and purposes. For instance, you might want to gain some functionality with this project by using a chalkboard, corkboard, or whiteboard as the backsplash material.
Two of these materials give you something to write on, and the corkboard allows you to pin recipes, notes, and photos on the backsplash. The key is to discuss the details with your family to determine which one they like the most and are most likely to use regularly.
Another option is to go with a standard backsplash that looks great but without providing additional functionality. Ceramic, glass, metal, stone, and wood are some of the options you can choose for the backsplash material. You may find it easiest to make a final decision by looking through different examples from each material to better understand how they look.
Painting the trim, ceiling, cabinets, and walls will clearly impact appearance. An excellent plan is to figure out all the other projects you plan to do in the kitchen before you choose paint colors. Waiting to do this step last will ensure you know exactly what colors are going to be in the kitchen, so you can pick ones that mesh well with the newly improved room.
While recessed lights may not add much character to your kitchen, you can invest in other lighting solutions that can help. For instance, chandeliers, pendant lights, and track lights are better options to boost character because they are more noticeable in the room. An important decision is whether you want to prioritize a decorative or functional chandelier.
While all chandeliers will provide lighting, you might want one that does an incredible job of boosting light in the room while also adding beauty to the room.
Invest in these projects with professional help to add character to your kitchen.
