While picking the kitchen themes, there are many aspects you need to consider. If you have a small kitchen then for kitchen decorating, use monochromatic colors like white, blue, light gray or yellow. You can also consider installing additional windows and light fixtures to increase the amount of light in the kitchen. Make sure you maintain the least amount of clutter. If you have a large-sized kitchen then go for darker colors like purple, maroon, brown, etc. Also, the kitchen cabinets should be fitted according to the kitchen design to create harmony. For a squarish kitchen, go with a round or square dining table, for a large kitchen you can go with an oval or rectangular dining table. If you are on a tight budget, then go with contemporary theme, and look for cheap kitchen furniture, and add few lights and a flower vase to decorate your kitchen.
One of the best ways to save money on kitchen remodeling is to opt for projects that you can do yourself over weekends. This ensures that you save money on labor and only pay for the material cost. If you are happy with the existing kitchen layout, then there is no need to spend money on designing and planning a new layout for the kitchen.
The number and size of appliances have increased manifold since 1950. Thus, the classic triangle design may not work for the modern kitchens of today, that flaunt sophisticated appliances. Hence, the idea of zone centered design came into practice. The concept of this layout design is based on division of kitchen into several zones, based on the activity. Meaning, the appliances are arranged in the order of their utility. Any modern kitchen can be primarily divided into main zones such as cooking, cleaning, baking, eating, storing, etc. This way, you can find whatever you need for a single activity at one place only. Not only this will reduce the time taken for fetching things and making trips within the kitchen, it will also keep your kitchen more organized and clutter free.
One of the best ideas for inexpensive kitchen remodeling is to update your existing kitchen cabinets by using paint, molding and new hardware instead of installing new ones. The cost of installing brand new kitchen cabinets is exorbitant, and when you are on a budget it is best to make the best of what you have got. Painting the kitchen cabinets in a color that complements the wall color of the kitchen is a great idea to jazz them up. You can even consider staining or pickling the wooden kitchen cabinets for a fresh look. Install new hardware like kitchen cabinet pulls and knobs. These types of installation do not cost much and you can do it yourself over the weekend.
Apart from these ideas, you can also consider Italian, farmhouse, oriental, and wine themes. Make sure you pick a theme which goes with the decor of the rest of the rooms, so that the transition between other rooms to kitchen is smooth.
French country kitchen colors are very popular, and this theme gives a cozy and warm look to the kitchen. Pick color for walls which are a butter shade of yellow and off-white and stucco texture for the ceiling. Add weathered and stained cabinets, and display copper cookware, and use terracotta tiles. Pick an earthy granite material for kitchen countertops. Then add few wrought iron chairs and chandelier to complete the look.
