A Colorful Kitchen
from Better Homes and Gardens
Do you have outdated cabinets and fixtures, but don't have the
budget to have your kitchen completely remodeled? Why not try updating
with a lively and colorful paint.
White cabinets are always a safe base for any accent colors you
wish to add to your colorful kitchen decor. Enhance your cabinets
with new pulls and knobs. They don't cost much, but can make your
cabinets look brand new. Try taking off the doors or cutting out
a space for a glass insert to display your dishes and open up your
space. A fresh coat of periwinkle paint gives this room spunk and
makes it appear brighter and larger.
Your kitchen should be a place you enjoy and bright colors tend
to make people feel happier. Take advantage of colors in your kitchen
decor. Accessories such as towels and oven mitts can add an extra
sense of color and texture to the room.
For a more open feeling, leave your windows uncovered or add a
simple valance topper with coordinating fabric for a splash of color.
Use the same fabric to carry on the theme into your eat-in kitchen
with napkins or tablecloths. A spray of flowers as a centerpiece
will make your table stand out. Have fun in your kitchen and don't
be afraid to use splashes of color to brighten your space.
