Claire Boivin. Kitchen. January 16th , 2018.
Sadly, one of my client's kitchens looked the same as it did ten years ago when her and her husband bought the house. Everything was outdated, including the paint on the walls, and to be honest, she actually hate inviting her friends over to visit. She told me that she would really love to be able to renovate her kitchen, but since her full-time job has become a part-time job, money is an issue for her. What she really needed were some great kitchen design ideas that are to put it bluntly, not inexpensive but cheap, cheap, cheap! After breezing through a few magazines and watching the Home Improvement channel, she had uncovered a collection of easy on the pocket, kitchen design ideas that even Jack Benny would love.
How does one design with a country theme kitchen? One of the most important factors is the colors used in the kitchen. Those that bring in warmth and a fresh and clean look and feel are often recommended. Softer hues of green, yellow and brown may be preferred as well as other earthly colors. To help achieve this effect, kitchen owners will often flower and plant details into the area through wallpapers, frames or the real thins in vases and pots.
The first of my kitchen design ideas is to work on the color scheme of your kitchen. If you are fortunate enough to have real wood cabinets, strip the finish off them and redo it with a lightly tinted stain. If your cabinets are not wood, you can go ahead and paint them in any color you wish. Paint the walls as well, in a color that best highlights the cabinets.
Express Yourself Artistically and Inexpensively. Nothing makes a room feel completely renovated more than a fresh coat of paint. Repaint your kitchen walls in a shade that is completely different from your existing color. Either choose a paint that goes along with your cupboards or redecorate them to compliment the walls. Your paint and supplies should be purchased at Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart offers an extensive paint collection which easily rivals the size of most paint stores. The best part of shopping at Wal-Mart though is the great value. You know your budget, as slim as it is, and Wal-Mart has quality paints at prices you can easily afford.
When you are making the calculations for space in your professional kitchen design ideas, do not forget to calculate the height of all of the counters and workspaces. If the height is too low or too high, it will make working in the kitchen unpleasant and tiring. Whether you are going to use gas or electric to cook, it should also be incorporated in your professional kitchen design ideas. Many cooks prefer to use both gas and electric. What size will your ovens be? Keep in mind that you need bigger ovens for the large trays and baking sheets. Do you want grills, griddles and barbecue access? Do you want that barbecue to be charcoal? In order to keep the kitchen cool, dry and comfortable, do not forget to incorporate kitchen hood heat extractors.
