I have been on the hunt for unique kitchen decor ideas for awhile because I am in the middle of revamping our current design. Right now it is quite outdated, with those boring oak paneled cabinets and brass knobs that were so popular in the 1990s. We actually have quite a spacious layout but I feel as though the space is not maximized to its full potential. One of the things I really want to experiment with is new and unexpected kitchen themes like the home in these pictures. This designer completed the space in a kind of retro island style that is so fresh and fun. They mixed colors, textures and finishes in an unexpected and unorthodox way that actually works so well together.
All of my friends love my new country wall decor that I got from the local flea market last weekend. I feel like most people these days just don’t appreciate antique shops or local consignment markets enough. In my experience, you can find so many great pieces to use throughout your home for dirt cheap. Plus it really gets my creative juices flowing to go hunting for treasures amongst all of the other junk. I was able to find all of this kitchen wall decor for under $20, and I think that it all coordinates perfectly to give me than eclectic country look I was hoping for. Perhaps my favorite piece of all is the tin ceiling tile hanging above our range.
My favorite kitchen decor themes lately are those that mix traditional design elements with edgy industrial touches. This may sound like a very odd combination, but I find that the two contrasting styles actually work very well together. This is a home that we recently completed an entire first floor remodel. The homeowners wanted to add some contemporary flare to the traditional “bones” of their interior design. In our mind, this meant incorporating some very modern kitchen ideas to reinvent their traditional style cabinets. Rather than gutting the kitchen we actually decided to refinish the cabinetry in these gorgeous white and ebony colors.
A really cool trend I have been seeing this year is companies releasing kitchen decor sets that help you develop your design without a lot of thought. You can purchase coordinating dining tables and bar area stools that also have matching light fixtures, decorative accents and linens. This beautiful kitchen design features a very contemporary decor set but you can also find them in more traditional or neutral styles. My suggestion is to check out the items the blend well with your existing interior style and house decoration, so that your kitchen blends seamlessly with the rest of your home. Also keep an eye on scale when you are selecting your furniture pieces.
Utilizing cool kitchen wall decor ideas is a great way to update the look of your space without undertaking a complete remodel or spending a ton of money. Cabinetry, countertops and flooring create the base of the design but it does not have to determine the entire style of the space. Playing around with wall paint, fixtures, knobs and decor can have a huge impact on the overall style of the space. We took on this small kitchen redesign project but were told that the cabinets, floors, and countertops should all remain the same to save money. They liked aspects of country kitchen decor, but did not want the entire to space to scream rustic chic.
I just love French country kitchen decor especially when it is paired with white cabinetry. It is such a classic and timeless look that remains popular year after year no matter what new trends come about. I think that the key to the longevity of the design is that it brings together so many traditional elements that can be combined with a variety of interior decor styles, even some contemporary things. Panelled cabinets, butcher block, and multifunctional elements are something that can coordinate with a lot of different themes, it doesn’t have to be all rooster kitchen decor. This beautiful home is a great example of how you can combine the country style with contemporary or industrial elements to make the look more current.
