If you are in the midst of redecorating your kitchen, chances are you’re looking for new ideas to make your kitchen more unique and visually appealing. You’ve probably looked around your kitchen already, and maybe even put some thought into what sort of things you’d like to add or change. But the whole point is not to go wild with your imagination right away. It’s best to plan your design first, so that you can be sure that you’re getting your money’s worth. The next step will depend on how you plan to implement your ideas:
One great way to make your kitchen more interesting and distinctive is to add a countertop with no visible shelves. Many kitchens these days have open shelves running along the wall. If you’re not sure about the aesthetic appeal of this idea, take a look at some of the more open kitchens of recent years. If you have an open shelf running along the wall, but no visible interior cabinet space underneath, it can really stand out, especially if your kitchen appliances are on display or if your countertops are colored like white or stainless steel.
Another great idea for kitchen decor that’s both simple and charming is a rustic looking bar with wooden tables and chairs. There’s something almost primal and earthy about wood, and it lends itself nicely to being incorporated into a country kitchen style, since wood tends to lend itself rather neatly to country settings. A small country kitchen with a rustic bar and wooden tables and chairs, however, may be a bit too informal and simplistic for a kitchen that’s designed to be more formal.
