Five Ways to Add Character to Your Kitchen Interior
Your kitchen is one of the most important spaces in your home. So why not season your kitchen with a little bit of love and add a dash of your personality to the place where meals and memories are made.
Textures & Patterns
Elevate your kitchen by adding movement and dimension to it, by incorporating fun textures and patterns which will help to level up your kitchen and take it from drab to fab. Choose a bold, interesting backsplash or define the character of your kitchen with distinctive flooring. With a choice of patterned, textured tiles or terracotta tiles, the kitchen floor can go from being the focal point of your kitchen interior or play the perfect supporting role and bring the other aspects of the kitchen to centre stage.
Contrast soothing neutral shades of wall paint with a pop of colour with your backsplash, counter top or kitchen island.
Colour Me Happy
Shades like white, grey, soft yellow or blue are usually found in kitchen interiors, but choosing to add a splash of colour with bold hues or patterned prints will help to up the ante on your interior design goals. Contrast soothing neutral shades of wall paint with a pop of colour with your backsplash, counter top or kitchen island. An open display of vibrant crockery also adds a layer to your kitchen’s personality.
All You Need Is a Little Bit of You
Claim your kitchen space and make it a reflection of you, by making it more than just a utilitarian room to the catalyst of conversations and memorable anecdotes.
Spruce it up some wall art, photos from your travel or even memorabilia that you picked up on a holiday. This will add an element of sweet nostalgia; of the adventures had, memories made and the food savoured on your travels.
Focus on the Floor
Showcase the character of your kitchen by choosing an interesting floor surface. Patterned tiles are a good option, as they are available in a range of styles and colours which will give you plenty of options to suit your design.
Calming visual stimulus can add charm to your kitchen interiors. You can choose to add air purifying indoor plants in stylish planters, succulents for table tops or even a mini kitchen window garden with herbs that add value not just visually but also functionally. Needless to say, the choice of the kind of plants would be governed by the amount of natural light available in your kitchen.
Don’t be surprised if next time you hear the words, ‘what’s cooking, good looking?’ at your home, it may just be addressed to your gorgeous kitchen.
