Bamboo is a sustainable material that can work wonderfully in the kitchen. You can choose from various grains and colors. A lighter shade of bamboo works well to make the kitchen appear light and bright. Volatile Organic Compounds (or VOCs) are toxic gases that are released from wall paint, so a good green move is to choose paints that are low or completely free of VOCs. Also choose building materials such as VOC-free glues and adhesives to ensure a healthier kitchen. Using what you already have to update your kitchen can be a simple way to jump on the eco-friendly bandwagon. Mismatched chairs look trendy and fun, while breathing new life into items of furniture that you did not want.
Mobile or portable kitchen islands are very great to have in homes with an open floor plan where the kitchen shares the same zone with the living space and maybe even some other areas. This means that the kitchen island can become part of any of the other spaces’ design as well. You can also use the kitchen island as a bar or an extension to the dining table. A kitchen island on wheels increases the versatility of the piece and gives you more freedom when using it. This island has a very intriguing design. It has a sleek metal frame with tall and thin legs with wheels and this simple design makes it lightweight and easy to relocate. Take out in the living room, in the dining room and even on the terrace.
It can be very easy to fall into the trap of a dull and generic kitchen design. We often tend to stick to a colour palette of white and grey because it makes life a lot easier. However, your kitchen is supposed to be a place that inspires creativity. You are going to be cooking meals in this room every day. Don’t you want it to be somewhere that looks innovative and stylish? If you really want to give your kitchen a show-stopping edge you should opt for bright shades. A lot of people are scared to go down this route because they believe it will be overpowering. But if you opt for bright pops of colour like this kitchen you’ll be just fine. Play towards the fun factor with some pop art and contemporary accessories.
The kitchen lets you add tons of storage. You can fit lots of different compartments for things like plates, cups, wine bottles, glasses, etc. It’s very practical, especially if you also plan to use the island as a bar or breakfast table. Open shelving is very practical in the kitchen because it lets you easily grab the things you need without having to open and close drawers or cabinet doors. They’re also great for display. In addition, shelves make the kitchen seem more open and airy than closed cabinets. Keep all kitchen essentials handy and store them off the counter. For example, hang your utensils on the backsplash and have small shelves on which to store all the tiny spice jars. This way they’re always within reach.
