#1: Add A Chalkboard
Chalkboard paint has remained popular for a little while now and painting a particular wall with chalkboard paint can not only look fantastic, but it can also be functional too. Create the week’s menu, keep track of your shopping list, devise a calendar so the entire family can keep up to date with what’s happening. Keep in mind that the chalkboard paint doesn’t need to be black! Chalkboard paints come in a whole spectrum of colours.
#2: Add Hanging Plants
A massive trend over the past year, plants add life to the room. In the kitchen, you may want to contemplate planting up fresh herbs making cooking from scratch much more enjoyable.
#3: Add Something Surprising
Vintage finds are pleasing, add some personality to space. A vintage mirror is so unexpected in the kitchen but catches the light from the opposite window to brighten up space beautifully. Repurposing vintage objects in a new surrounding can be just what’s required to liven up your kitchen.
#4: Wallpaper Or Patterned Tiles
Make a statement with a bold design using either wallpaper or tiles. If this is a little too brazen for you, consider a singular feature wall to give your kitchen a touch of interest.
#5: Adding Art
Why not contribute a gallery wall to your kitchen, adding interest and character. Surrounding yourself with art that you enjoy is more important than making sure everything matches.
#6: Add A Rug
The kitchen may not be the most obvious place you might think about adding a rug, consider the design, colour and comfort It can bring to the kitchen. You may not want to put down a valuable antique rug, a simple, smart rug that can be easily washed could be just what your kitchen needs to introduce some colour and pattern.
