It is not necessary to have a lot of knowledge in design to decorate kitchens with good taste. With ingenuity, we can make kitchens look nice and cozy, and above all, make it practical. We will show you some cheap and easy tips.
The kitchen, together with the bathroom, is one of the places that get the dirtiest on a daily basis, so it is recommended that they be well organized and everything kept in its place. One of the ways to have the kitchen always well organized is to divide it into two spaces: cold zone and a hot zone.
This makes our kitchen always tidy because the different things in it will not be mixed. If, for example, we are going to cook a salad, only the cold area will get dirty while the hot one will remain clean. Believe me that if you separate the room well, you will be surprised to see your kitchen clean for longer.
In one of the spaces things that are hot or that require fire will be placed. That is the oven, the microwave, the stove or ceramic hob, and everything for cooking.
Dishes, dishwashers, refrigerators, cutters, and everything that does not require hot things will be placed in the cold area. Normally, the cold zone is already established by the sink, so where the sink is located will be this zone.
White kitchens never go out of style. White tiles, open shelving, and perhaps cabinets with glass doors make a kitchen look more spacious.
White kitchens with some pop of color look fabulous.
That means everything must be super organized, so closed doors could make a better option.
Dark cabinets can look ultra-stylish in the lower half of the kitchen, under the counter. They can be dark gray or in some shade of teal.
But of course, you can give color to all the cabinets, as we see in the kitchen below. Shades of sage green are being used a lot today.
Lighting is key to making a kitchen comfortable and beautiful, so invest in a light bulb or smartly placed pendant lighting.
If you have cabinets above the counter, it might also be worth putting LED lights under and even inside them to light up the space.
