If you are looking for something to make your kitchen better and get out of like the all-white kitchen trend that has dominated for a decade. Looking for something more layered, inviting, and personal then we have a few things to let you know about.

Butcher Block Countertops

If you need some durable, then replace whatever you have with a warm wood. Butcher block wood is a good option, it doesn’t really need much doing to it, you’ll just need to occasional coat it with mineral oil. The naturalness of this is a great neutral break from an all-white.

Design from the Ground Up

You can’t really use a rug in a kitchen, even if it would be a great durable solution. It just wouldn’t work in a heavy-use kitchen. Add tiling to make a statement, having good flooring will help you design the rest of your kitchen.

Colourful Accents

Stainless steel is going out of fashion, quite quickly, so colour is coming back with a big bang. So, look into getting colourful stuff within your kitchen like utensils, fridge, freezer and counter top appliances.

Darker Floors

Select a darker floor to cosy the room, if you have light paint on you walls or cabinets.

Two-Tone Cabinets

Mix it up, don’t be afraid. Having matching cabinetry is way in the past. Get different colour cabinets if that’s what you’d like to do, mixing white and grey together is the perfect contrast with a rustic kitchen.

Open Shelving

By having open shelves, it allows you to show off your kitchen wares. Also, you can show anything you like, such as; cooking books, baking books, heirloom and anything precious to you that you think would fit right into your kitchen. Open shelving helps you find what you want easier as well.

Concealed Range Hoods

Do you feel more need to give more attention to your accessories and appliances? Then you should get and concealed range hood this will allow your other kitchen elements to be seen.

Now you can start decorating. Just remember your kitchen is the main thing in your house, make sure you express yourself through your kitchen. However, you should make it catch people’s eyes and look nice.
