Highlight Story

Kitchens can easily get monotonous, especially for women who spend more time there than in any other part of the house. Choosing the right colour and theme for this space is an easy and pocket friendly way to keep them fresh and lively.

Liven up

The theme you choose must be in consonance with your personality and the area available. The kitchen must also remain functional. By painting the cabinets and replacing the modern handles with the vintage glass knobs one can get a retro look to your kitchen.

The linen can also be turned vintage. Use of decorative tiles, rich hues and wrought iron can give the kitchen a Mexican feel. Some interesting pictures on the unoccupied wall can give cheerfulness to the otherwise boring kitchen.

Brighten up

Use colours creatively in the kitchen and not just the other rooms of your house.

Go for the plain neutrals and metallics to even textured walls. A monochromatic colour scheme can be created with matching cabinets, countertop and wall colours.

Another way of adding colour would be to hang multi-coloured and printed but easily washable curtains. Accessories such as flower vases, jars, light shades, stools and cutlery stands also help.
