Bright Ideas for Your Kitchen
I love to cook, and when I cook, I need plenty of room and the right pots and pans, and all the other tools necessary to prepare what I am planning. I also need a great space in which to work. A great space gives you a good feeling and lets your creative juices flow. It can inspire you to create wonderful meals and try new recipes. If your kitchen feels "old" or drab, give it a new Lake Gaston feel. If you are considering selling your home, a nice kitchen is also a huge selling point. Refresh dark or wood cabinets with a coat of paint. White cabinets are fresh and clean looking, and can give your kitchen a lift. It can change the whole feel of your kitchen. You can even take it a step further and change the hardware. It always helps a space to brighten it up with light. You may want to add under-counter lights to those dark, hard-to-reach corners. If ceiling height allows it, you can bring lights down from the ceiling or use hanging lights. This will help to make your space more attractive and makes your work easier. When thinking about lighting, you can also add some silver, bronze, or copper in your back-splash. This will make light bounce off of the walls and make your kitchen look great. As for the rest of your space, there are several other things you can do to brighten up the area. One idea is that you can change or add a light counter-top to an island. Replacing dark flooring is another idea, and if that is not an option for you, then you can get a nice neutral colored kitchen rug to throw on the floor. I hope I have gotten you to thinking about your kitchen space. Get your creativity to flowing and start cooking up some great dishes.
