If you are redecorating your kitchen, you want to make sure the materials you select are top-notch and that the contractors know what they are doing. You want a style that is consistent with the rest of the house that reflects your personality. Once the basic design is completed, you can do a few small things to make it your own.
The right kitchen rug can add to the aesthetic of your home. You should look for a rug that goes with the furniture and the flooring.
A good kitchen rug will complement the colors and texture of the kitchen rather than clashing with it. If you have brightly colored cabinets, it is best to select a neutral rug. If the color of your cabinets is neutral, you should get a bright solid colored rug or even a multi-colored rug that has one or more of the cabinet’s colors.
Finding the correct size of the kitchen rug can be challenging. If you select a rug that is too small, it will take focus away from the rest of the kitchen and look tacky. If a kitchen rug is too large, it will have the same effect, and the only thing people will notice is the rug.
Runners are the best option for small kitchens or those with an island in the middle since the kitchen is narrower than other rooms of the house. There should be no more than six inches between the runner and the island and the cabinets on either side.
A Cup Tree
A cup tree is an easy and inexpensive way to add flair to your kitchen. You can find cup trees made of natural wood if your kitchen has a rustic look. You can also get a plastic holder in a color that goes well with the cups in your kitchen. A metal mug tree looks great, goes well in a modern kitchen, and will last forever.
Cup trees are inexpensive enough that you should be able to invest in high-quality ones. If a cup tree isn’t sturdy, you can end up with a dangerous mess to clean up. Although an asymmetrical cup tree may look cool, it will probably not be stable enough to hold your mugs.
If you have a neutral kitchen, colorful cups will add a nice contrast to the room. Copper and silver also go well with a neutral kitchen.
Custom-designed cups are one of the best ways to personalize your kitchen. There are websites out there that will let you design coffee mugs. You can put a design on a coffee mug or a cute or clever catchphrase on the cup of your choice.
Salt and Pepper Shakers
A salt and pepper shaker collection will liven up your kitchen and let people see your creative and fun side. There are salt and pepper shakers of every type and variety you can imagine out there. You will find everything from woodland creatures, cartoon characters, food, and political heroes represented in salt and pepper shaker form.
Adding your personal style will let people know a little something about you when they come to visit. Adding a few stylish knickknacks will add personality to your kitchen without breaking your budget.
