You may implement your own ideas considering the dimensions of your own kitchen and the size and number of kitchen appliances. No matter which layout you choose, the arrangement should be such that minimum time is wasted in walking around for fetching things.
One of the best way to update the look of a plain and boring kitchen is to change the wall colors. Pick a paint color that is lively and fresh instead of a muted or pastel color. A bit of color in the kitchen can give the kitchen a completely new look. Choose paint colors like tangerine, sunny yellow and citrus greens to give the kitchen a warm look. Painting a kitchen is one of the most cost-effective way of renovating a kitchen. Alternatively, you can even install a wallpaper on one or two walls of the kitchen. A modern wallpaper pattern can enhance the kitchen decor and make it look stylish and contemporary. And the best thing about using wallpaper is that there are many inexpensive and discount wallpapers available in home improvement stores.
There are certain colors which can stand out and make the cabinets look less prominent. These are mostly bright colors. These colors need to be selected wisely, otherwise they can look too loud. The best is to go with medium or medium-light shades of such color. Some of the colors which will make the wall look more prominent than the kitchen are sunshine yellow, bright green, orange, red, and turquoise blue.
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.
You could get the walls textured. Faux finishing techniques are the best options to highlight the focal wall of your kitchen or dining area. Use it to beautify the wall behind the dining table or enhance a large or small wall that is least cluttered. You can opt for a sponge finish, ragging, or combining any of the best techniques for walls. With these you have the liberty of using some unique shades like golden, silver, or silvery green.
If the flooring of your kitchen is badly scratched or stained, then you need to replace the flooring. Replacing the flooring can be an expensive project, but there are many cheap flooring options available that can cut down your costs. Vinyl flooring and linoleum flooring are cheaper options and these type of flooring can be easily installed by you, thus helping you save on labor cost. You can also install laminate flooring which is not only cheap but also comes in a variety of patterns and designs to match your kitchen decor. If you budget does not permit a new flooring to be installed, then you can install a seagrass rug or sisal rug instead.
