Do you have a kitchen that is wedged into the middle of your house and only has one small window? Maybe the cupboards and flooring are really dark and it makes the whole room look drab? A dark kitchen can be uninspiring and even frustrating, especially when you're trying to cook a big meal. With the wrong colors, designs, and lighting it can be hard to see what you're doing and it can put you in the wrong mood for cooking. If you're considering kitchen remodeling in the near future, you might want to take a look at these five ways that you can brighten up the space.
Can't decide between marble countertops or quartz countertops? It can be a tough choice, considering how beautiful they both look. Either way that you go, you want to pick a lighter color to brighten up your kitchen. Black or gray counters can make the room look darker than it is, especially if they are paired with dark shades of wood or tile. Choosing white, light brown, or even a pale pink can help to bring some light into the space. Quartz countertops also offer an extra bit of sparkle if that's something you are looking for.
A nice way to add some extra color or vibrancy to a room is with the right accessories. Light-colored flowers, white or pale toned towels, and vibrant wall art can make a big difference. This is a great option for those who can't afford a total overhaul of their kitchen, but still want to brighten it up. Picking a color scheme that matches throughout the room helps as well by drawing more attention to the colors you choose.
A relatively easy change that you can do all on your own is giving your cupboards and walls a paint job. If you have an older home with dark cabinets and a less-than-desirable wall color, change it up. Pick something vibrant that will bring life to the whole kitchen. Once again, pale shades are a nice option for this because you can add color while keeping things light. They also tend to look subtle and classic when paired with a quartz countertop.
Many older homes come with dim yellow lighting that can make any room look dark and unpleasant. Changing up the lighting in your kitchen can make a huge difference in how it looks, as well as make it easier for you to see what you're doing when you're chopping vegetables. LED lights tend to be brighter and give off a whiter light.
There's nothing wrong with tile or linoleum, but there's something about a light wood floor that really makes a kitchen pop. It brightens up the whole space and gives it a clean look. They do take a little extra care, but they're worth it.
