Kitchen fashions come and go. Lime kitchens were a fad in the 1970s, but they are no longer in vogue. However, white is a colour that never goes out of style, which is why it is a good idea to consider decorating your kitchen in white for a timeless look that will remain with you through the years. Beside, the cost for kitchen renovation in Canada is quite reasonable.
Start by painting the kitchen walls white for an instant appearance of a clean, open kitchen. Fortunately, white appliances usually cost less than other finishes such as stainless steel, so opt for a white fridge/ freezer, cooker, and microwave. By spending less on white appliances, you will have money left over to spend on more expensive features such as tile or hardwood floors as well as decorative light fixtures for the kitchen.
Galley kitchens, which are typically smaller in appearance, will look more spacious and inviting if the cabinets are in theme with the white kitchen surroundings. As the sun hits the kitchen, the room will look more open and brighter. A coat of white paint will keep the kitchen looking in tip top condition and does not cost much in comparison to a complete kitchen makeover. There are many shades of white paint to choose from depending on the look you wish to achieve.
Showcase a Collection
White kitchens offer the perfect backdrop to show off your ceramic dishes or crystal collection. Pick and choose what you would like to showcase and rotate your collections if you have more than one, so that you can create a completely different feel to your white kitchen without having to spend a great deal of money on a completely new re-decorating project.
Kitchen cabinet styles will change over time and your personal tastes will also change which is why it is a good idea to only change out small details at a time, such as cabinet hardware. Replace white cabinet and drawer knobs for different textures such as glass or metal that matches a kitchen feature that you want to draw attention to such as the sink.
White kitchens are classic and never go out of style. To accentuate the look of your white kitchen but to keep within your budget, choose matching white kitchen appliances, use white as a dramatic backdrop to showcase a collection. Finally, make affordable changes to cabinet hardware to reflect current trends and a shift in your personal taste.
