If you have a flexible budget, then you can go with a theme kitchen like Italian, Tuscan, or French country. If you are looking for a calm look, go with more whites and off-whites. For a cheerful look in the kitchen sunshine yellow walls are a good idea. If you want your kitchen to look stunning then pick colors like lavender, black, mint blue, light cherry, or pale green. Make sure you have enough cabinets and shelves to accommodate all the utensils to maintain the kitchen space uncluttered, this will also help in kitchen cleaning. For easier maintenance of the kitchen, go with a semi-gloss finish, as this finish makes the wall more durable and can be scrubbed.
No kitchen remodeling is complete until you replace your old kitchen countertop with new ones. Choose inexpensive countertop material like laminate and tile instead of costly countertop materials like solid stone slab and quartz surfacing countertop. You can also choose ceramic tile countertop as they are inexpensive and comes in a variety of styles and designs. However, they are very time-consuming to install. Laminate countertops are one of the cheapest option and they are durable and available in a wide range of patterns and textures.
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.
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.
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.
One good idea is that you must have 75% of the kitchen painted in the main color and 25% of it in a shade used to neutralize the effect, while you want to have a lively effect. For example, in case of schemes where you have black, it must cover at least 75% of the kitchen. This is essential to get the perfect feel. In case you are creating a calming effect, you can have the two shades in equal percentage. This way you can use same combination to create different effects. Like a combo of magenta and off white, violet spanning 75% of the kitchen and off-white spanning the rest will give a flashy look to the area. Same colors used in an equal ratio will give you a considerably cool effect. While you work on this, you should also consider the aforementioned elements like the cabinets, dining table, and wall tiles to have the desired effect.
