Add sufficient lighting
One very simple, yet easily overlooked kitchen remodel idea is to improve the lighting. However, endeavor to choose stylish lighting fixtures. A well lit kitchen will make using the kitchen easier, whether it is to throw a meal together early in the morning or treat your friends to a group dinner.
Paint your kitchen in bright colors
The kitchen serves many purposes in the home. Asides the obvious fact that it is where you cook your meals, it is also the site of many contemplations, like in the morning when you are having your first cup of coffee, and social interactions, like when you are having dinner with family and friends.
For this reason, your kitchen should have a bright and cheery feel to it – and there is no better way to do this than to paint it in bright colors.
However, that is not to say there should be no dark colors. Contrast is important; however, you should aim to have more bright spots in your kitchen than dark ones.
Install a chalkboard wall
A good project idea for remodeling your kitchen is to add a chalkboard wall. If you cannot afford this, you can simply paint the wall section you intend to use in white color and then lay a coat of chalkboard paint on it.
A chalkboard wall serves many purposes; the most important is that it elevates the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen. As a result, it will turn your kitchen into a space you and members of your family love to be in.
Furthermore, you can use the wall to post reminders, keep inventory of your grocery, and leave notes for your family members.
