Today we have 3 quicks tips to help in the kitchen! We spend a lot of time in our kitchens so why not love them? Here are 3 ways to help you enjoy your coastal home kitchen!
1. Pop Those Colors
The kitchen gives you a place to really go bold with pops of color. With limited counter space you have to make your accessories count. Don’t forget that you can also bring in different colored lighting pieces as well!
2. Use Natural Textures
With most kitchens having wood cabinets it easy to forget that you can play and design off those textures. There’s no need to just slap a coat of paint on the cabinets and call it a day. If that’s how you planned it, there’s no problem with that, but don’t forget that you can expand on the natural wood grains and textures to bring your kitchen to the next level.
3. Play With Patterns
Kitchens are a great place to have fun with patterns. They can be bright and pop out or they can compliment the color palette. The choices are endless and so are the pattern placements. Explore pattern ideas with kitchen rugs, the back splash and maybe even the tile floor. The pattern possibilities are endless!
People are naturally collectors. Sometimes it’s intentional and other times, well, life gets in the way and we forget to throw things away. When we decide on something to collector it seems like that’s all we want. We’re officially on the hunt! After a healthy amount of rummaging through flea markets, antique stores and garage sale, you finally amass a collection worthy of showing. How are you going to display the collection you worked so hard to find?
We have a suggestion, head to the walls! Walls are a great way to display your collections! They give us plenty of space to show off our finds. Plus they provide extra room for you to add to your collection because let’s be honest, it never stops growing.
Get fancy with the collection and frame it! Frames are a great way to display the collection on the wall and let people know you’re proud of your hard work. Unfortunately, not all of our collections are framable, and that’s fine. Another way is to invest in wall shelves and prop your collection up for all to see. It lets you open up the space for other decor and design elements.
Using the walls helps you make the most of the space in your home and prevents the over cluttering of side consoles or tables. So head to the walls and start displaying your collection today!
