Bright, multicolored bar stools in the kitchenLet’s step up the color in the kitchen. Using color in the kitchen is a fun way to break up the normal neutral tones you normally see in the space. Usually there’s a good amount of white or some variation of stereotypical granite, so why not break it up?

Get a couple colors that pop out and say, “Hey! Look at me!” Bring that life and fun back to the space. Sometimes it’s as easy as throwing a quick coat of paint on the cabinets or grabbing a few eye-catching appliances. There’s no need to deck the entire kitchen out in color – unless you want to and we support you 100%! Check out some of these kitchens that are using color and get inspired!

Coastal kitchen with bistro style chair bar stoolsBecause a bar just isn’t complete without a bar stool. It’s like the classic PB&J. It doesn’t happen without the J. We can’t live in a world without complete and happy endings – it just isn’t right. Basically that’s why bar stools were invented. Okay, we can’t confirm that, but it’s the story we’re going with and we’re sticking to it.

Bar stools offer a lot to the look of a well designed kitchen and they actually serve a purpose. They give you place to plant your butt while you use that bar you had to have built into your kitchen island.

Another great advantage of the good ol’ bar stool is its ability to easily change the style or look of the kitchen. No remodeling or expensive projects involved, simply pick out your new stools and take out the old ones. Done and done.

Get inspired to bring new ideas into your kitchen with these lovely pictures featuring some beautifully designed and decorated kitchens complete with bar stools as well as plenty of envious design details.

Open kitchen storageWe’ve been seeing a lot open shelf/open storage kitchens lately and we love it! It’s another fun way like coastal kitchen hardware to bring style and character to your kitchen. It’s a pretty simple idea; stop hiding everything and show off what you’ve got!

Let people see all your plates, cups, spices, utensils, cooking supplies, pots, pans and small appliances. We love it because it opens the kitchen right up. It gets rid of the closed off look and invites everyone right in. When people display their spices and baking essentials in mason jars or other glass jars it gives the kitchen a cute, homey look. Plus when they’re out, they’re begging to be used and make you want to cook and bake!

With everything out for your family and guests to see there will be no more wondering where the mugs or a spatchula are. Also when you have no where to hide your dishes it will finally give you a good reason to go get that cute set you’ve been eyeing for awhile now! Stop hiding and open up your kitchen!
