A new kitchen should be a thing of beauty that you are incredibly proud of. Once it is fitted and finished you should be organizing dinner parties galore so that all of your friends can come and see what you have had done. You want them to be amazed and, let’s be honest, very jealous. So you need your new kitchen to be perfect in every way. The last thing you need is for your friends to think that they might have done things differently.
The problems arise when the workmen have left and your new kitchen is ready to go. There are always certain things that are not just right. The new kitchen needs a little something extra before it is exactly how you imagined it. Well, don’t despair because there are a few finishing touches that can make your new kitchen even better.
1.The natural light that is allowed into your new kitchen can make all the difference and making the most out of this light is a great way to improve the look of your new favorite room. So it’s time to put up some new curtains and change the curtain rail. Look for light and breezy curtains to give your new kitchen a fresh and happy look. Choose a slim line curtain rail to keep the appearance light and cheery. Replacing the rail is easy to do as most of the bits come in the pack. You just need a drill and a screwdriver and you are ready to go.
2.A kitchen island can be expensive when you are designing your new kitchen so why not consider using a piece of furniture from elsewhere in the house. You might have a sideboard in the dining room which is just gathering dust or a chest of drawers in the spare bedroom that you no longer use. So clean them up and fit a work surface that matches the one in your new kitchen and hey presto you’ve got a lovely new island. If you haven’t got a piece of suitable furniture already you might decide to have a look in some antique fairs or shops to see if there is something for the right price. Work out what an island would have cost when the kitchen was fitted and stay below this amount and everyone’s a winner.
3.Get your message across by placing a chalk board on the wall.
This can make a kitchen look terrifically traditional. Choose a piece of unused wall and put up the chalk board, now you can write out messages to your family safe in the knowledge that they will see them when they enter the kitchen. “Clean up after yourself” or “why are you wearing your dirty shoes in my new kitchen?” are favorites, but you might just want to remind yourself of what groceries need replacing.
These are all really simple and effective ways to improve the look of your new kitchen and just about anybody can apply them. So rather than sit back and enjoy what you have, make the effort and make it better.
