I have been going through a home renewal process – well, still going through actually. And with all the ideas out there, my home renovation journey was easier to navigate. That is why I have decided to share my experience to other like-minded individuals as a way of giving back to the people whose ideas were truly helpful with my home renovation. Here, I will share a list of seven essential ideas I found over my journey to achieve a cozy kitchen that suits every type of home.
Trendy Countertops, Essential Kitchen Feature
Other than their organic and rustic feel, wood countertops give off the warm feeling you need in a cozy kitchen. They are warm to the touch, gentle to your knives and are the perfect surface for processing or tenderizing your meat. Wood is also a sustainable resource which makes your countertop choice eco-friendly.
Match your backsplash with your countertops to give that feeling of harmony in your kitchen. Moreover, what’s important is that matching backsplash gives your kitchen a relaxed ambience.
Kitchen Cabinets up to the Ceiling
Putting your kitchen cabinets up to the ceiling will make your ceiling look taller. Giving a spacious feel to your kitchen while actually giving you more storage space. More than that, cabinets up to the ceiling require less upkeep than cabinets with an open space above. No more worries when it comes to dusting!
Moving on to handles. There is really no right or wrong choice when it comes to your cabinet handles, so long as they complement the other elements of your kitchen. So, when looking to complement the cosy elements in your kitchen, brass handles are a great choice. Whether it’s in dark or bright colours, they just give off a homey feeling instantly.
Essential Kitchen Idea, Laminate Flooring
Laminate floorings are inexpensive alternatives for real wood. Generally, wood surfaces create a warm and soft scenery. Along with wooden countertops, laminate flooring is another wood addition that will give a cozy feeling to your kitchen. Especially water-resistant options will make your life easier.
Since we spend a lot of time in our kitchen, having good lighting is truly essential. Warm up your kitchen with natural or bulb lighting. Put them in positions that will produce the right angle of light. Spotlights in the ceiling or cabinets are also very helpful in giving them a rich feel.
A safe space is a neat space. Keeping your kitchen organized is made possible by cabinet organizers. You can use lower cabinets as drawers and add rail systems for corner cabinets. Unique cabinet organizers will make you more in love with your kitchen.
Not only a practical addition to your kitchen, choosing the right sink will give off a charming feel. Farmhouse sinks let you wash kitchen utensils of even the largest size! They are timeless, spacious, and beautiful. They also add a distinctive look when added to your kitchens.
Bonus for Essential Kitchen Ideas!
Add some green love.
Adding green plants will enrich the scenery of any space. A plant addition to your kitchen gives it a more cozy feeling.
The kitchen is one of our safe spaces in our homes. And if you didn’t notice it yet, we actually spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Whether it’s to cook or to grab a quick snack, we usually end up sitting on our kitchen counter and talk with each other about our plans or what happened during our day. Follow these 7 essential ideas and make your kitchen look more inviting and warm for your family.
