Open-plan living is the lifestyle that most of us embrace, with the kitchen acting as the central hub where we spend most of our leisure time. With this in mind, it is crucial to give your kitchen a personal touch, just in the same way you would with any other room in the home. But how can you achieve this without going over the top?
Here are a few of our ideas to kickstart your imagination.
A feature wall:
Having blank walls in the kitchen hardly gives off the personal vibe you’re striving for, but if you introduce a feature wall it can really say a lot about you and your kitchen! What you decide to do with this wall is entirely up to you, whether you decide to tile it, paint it, or add wallpaper, personalising a feature wall will give your kitchen the personal touch you want to achieve.
Regardless of your kitchen’s theme, adding colour and interest from a range of accessories personalise your kitchen giving it a quirky and unique feel. The common rule is to use a palette of three colours to create the perfect kitchen feel, but don’t forget that these are just guidelines and you can do as you wish, it is your room after all!
Using different materials:
Kitchens are traditionally known to be made of the same materials throughout, but this doesn’t always have to be the case. A potential option is to have wall kitchen cabinets that are made of a different material to the cabinets closer to the ground.
This allows you to mix classic with contemporary and warmth with contrasting dark colours. The possibilities truly are endless, so be sure to think hard and experiment.
Add some wow extras:
Why not add LED lighting to the underside of your units or worktop, giving your kitchen depth and colour. This can really help to alter the ambience of the room whilst colour changing lights can easily suit the mood or occasion. Your kitchen is a place you should be proud of, so why not show it off with the right lighting in the right place.
If you’re looking to impress with your kitchen and also keep yourself inspired, you need to know what you can do to make it unique. Try the ideas from from the points above, as these are the little details that will make your kitchen stand out and ensure it looks great going forward.
Have a great weekend.
