Most people feel that they need to transform their homes at some point in life. One of the places that most people want to transform is the kitchen. There is a lot that goes into the kitchen and it is that one place in your house that guests will always see and come to especially when you have gatherings and dinners.
It is also important to transform the kitchen so it can always sparkle and be hygienic. Here are 4 simple tips to help you completely transform your kitchen to make it more inviting, give it a bold new look and maintain hygiene.
- Paint or Add Wallpaper
One of the easiest things you can do to have a new look for your kitchen is paint it or add wallpaper. The choice between the two boils down to preference, size of your kitchen and condition of your home. If you have a small kitchen, painting it might be the way to add character to your kitchen. Choose a paint that can resist the conditions in the kitchen and one that can be cleaned with ease.
Wallpaper is ideal for large kitchens. The patterns can be overwhelming for smaller kitchens. Wallpaper can add a lot of character to a kitchen that looks boring and dull. Ensure however that you choose vinyl based other than paper-based wallpaper.
Another very important part of your kitchen is the counters. You can add quartz, granite or marble counters to add sparkle to your kitchen. Quartz is the most durable and is resistant to the conditions in the kitchen. The other two varieties will require sealing annually or semi-annually depending on the use to maintain their look.
Choose marble if you want an elegant high-end look for your kitchen. Granite adds a natural look to the kitchen because it is solid stone. Quartz doesn’t need sealing and costs less to install therefore it has the best savings.
- Add Splashbacks
If you want to really maintain the hygiene of your kitchen and keep it clean then you need to add glass splashbacks. They are available in many different varieties to choose from to match your other kitchen installations like cabinetry. Splashbacks made of glass add a lot of depth and sophistication to the kitchen.
They are seamless because they do not have grout lines so you can be sure of an elegant finish to your kitchen. The glass used in splashbacks is also heat resistant and toughened for safety. It doesn’t shatter when hit so safety is never an issue.
- The Floor
The floor is the other area of the kitchen that really determines the look and cleanliness. You can add a hardwood or tiled floor in your kitchen. With hardwood, you have a timeless look that can really keep your kitchen looking beautiful for many years to come. It will need retouching after some time and can be expensive to install.
Hardwood adds warmth and sophistication to the kitchen. Tiles have that contemporary look and are very easy to clean. Tiles and laminate are extremely durable and cheaper to install than hardwood.
Taking care of these four will give your kitchen a complete transformation.
