Easy And Affordable Spring Kitchen Design Ideas

By Michael Holland

Do you need kitchen design ideas to help you freshen up the look of your kitchen?

There are different ways you can achieve your interior decorating goal, even if you have a limited bank account. You don’t need to base your kitchen on a specific décor theme. Sometimes the best way to give your kitchen a makeover is to keep certain elements you really like and replace the old with new.

To give you an idea of how you can revamp your kitchen without having to remodel it, the following are some great kitchen design ideas you can put to good use:

Paint – Paint is an inexpensive way to pump vitality back into your walls. If you tend to stick to neutrals because you are afraid of color, it’s time to put your fear of color behind you. Your kitchen should be a happy space full of energy.

Consider brightening up your walls with a nice mild or bold shade of yellow, orange or red. These colors promote warmth, socialization and orange can even boost your appetite.

On the other hand, if you really love the color green, perhaps you should focus your kitchen decorating ideas around this shade. After all, the only person you should be pleasing when you decorate your kitchen is you.

Curtains – If you don’t feel your walls need paint, you don’t want to paint, or even if you decide to, curtains are kitchen design ideas you should also consider. Adding curtains is another way to add color and decoration to your kitchen.

You can choose a solid colored curtain that picks up the accent color in the room, or try something with a simple pattern. Flowers, ivy, fruits, and herbs are popular pattern choices for interior decorating.

Towels – How old are your hand towels, dish towels and cloths? Have you ever considered changing them to match the color and style of your kitchen?

For example, if you are doing a floral theme as part of your kitchen design ideas, there are plenty of towels that feature various floral patterns in a number of colors. Maybe it’s time you turned your current towels into rags and replaced them with a whole new set.

Accessories – We all get tired of looking at the same things day in and day out. That is why one of the most important kitchen design ideas is to change up the items we use on a daily basis every once in a while.

There are a number of accessories in your kitchen that you can change and are not costly to replace. Some of these items include: salt and pepper shakers, bread box, paper towel rack, napkin holder, storage jars, fruit bowl, etc. Many of these items come in a variety of colors to allow you the opportunity to change the look of your kitchen.

Other accessories that may not be as cheap to replace but should be considered for replacement include coffeemaker, teapots, kettle, wall pictures, and floor mat. Using the floral design as an example, if the flowers you are using for a pattern include red roses, consider purchasing a red coffeemaker to match the roses, or a floral teapot. In addition, you can find floor mats and wall pictures that feature flowers.

The more creative you are with your kitchen design ideas, the more money you will save. All you need to do is sit down and really think about the specific elements in your kitchen you would like to change.
