Feeling the need for a little boost? Everyone is. Nowa��s the time of year when we could all use some uplifting energya��a refresh!a��and the kitchen, believe it or not, is the perfect place to start. Spending a weekend (or less) revamping the most-used, least-loved room in the house is worth it in so many ways: Youa��ll be able toA�put a personal stamp on a spaceA�that often feels the least a�?you,a�? and the results will encourage you to cook, eat, and entertain at home more often. Here are a few achievable ideas forA�kitchen upgrades you can take on today.
For some reason, people oftenA�shy away from adding artwork to kitchens and bathrooms, even when they hang it elsewhere in their homes. Dona��t fall into this patterna��just do it, and do it in a big way! It can be retro-style foodie art, posters from avant-garde art galleries, or blown-up vintage family photos: Whatever makes you happy is going to make your kitchen happy. The key is adding artwork at aA�scale that packs a punch. This meansA�generously sized single pieces or multiples arranged gallery stylea��what you dona��t want is one tiny picture looking lonely on the wall.
Wallpaper can completely transform the look of a kitchen, even in relatively small dosesa��ita��s a powerful design tool that adds unifying energy and much-needed color and texture to what is often a prettyA�utilitarian space. Think about it: Appliances and cabinets are usually big expanses of solid, neutral color, so offsetting them with a boldA�pattern naturally looks fantastic. The current crop of temporary wallpapers are simpleA�to install, easy toA�wipe clean (even close to cooking areas), and removable when youa��re ready to move out (a key qualification for renters). If you dona��t want to commit to papering the whole room, consider covering onlyA�the backsplash area, the space above the cabinets, a single wall, or even the ceiling.
The kitchen is such a fun room to make over because there are so many opportunities to add accessories that are both personalA�and practical. Why use a plain old tea towel when you could hang one thatA�shows off your love of cheeky typography or geometric motifs? As for salt and pepper shakers, vintage mayA�be your thing, or perhaps aA�simple, Scandi-inspired set. Be it storage canisters, serving trays, mugs, orA�table linens, file awayA�the boring basics and bring in pieces that will make you happy to spend time cooking, sipping, and snacking in your space.
I get it: Kitchens can be messy places. However, kitchen floors, especially in rentals, often have bland, worn, or outdated tiles. So, why not cover (most of) it up with a bright rug? Even small kitchens can accommodate a narrow runner or a series ofA�smaller rugs. The trick here is not to aim for a traditional, a�?kitchen-ya�? looka��think of this as an opportunity to add real color and interest to your space. And if youa��re reallyA�concerned about clean-up, look into indoor-outdoor styles, which are especiallyA�durable and designed to be hosed down as needed.
Is there any room in the home that doesna��t get a lift from the presence ofA�living, green things? Plants work everywhere, and in the kitchen they can be useful as well as decorative: A windowsill herb garden is the best! Aim for a mix of plants ofA�varying sizes, from small succulents to big leafy tropicalsA�(just be sure to select species that suit the level of light in your spacea��and the level of attention youa��re willing to give them). The plants are only half the story, though; the vessels you display them in can also help coordinate your overall kitchen design. If you do nothing else from this list, get started by treating yourself to a new plant and a pretty container to hold it. Your kitchen counter will thank you!
Now that youa��re ready to make your kitchen shiny and new, do you want to win an Etsy kitchen makeover? (Of course you do.) Share a photo of yourA�favorite mug on Instagram with the hashtag #DifferenceMakesUs, and you could be one of three winners to receive a $ 500 Etsy gift card towardA�the kitchen items of your dreams.A�EndsA�February 10, 2017.
