Spice Up Your Kitchen with Color

February 14, 2020

New homes in Gulfport MS offer the perfect backdrop for adding creative touches of color. This is especially true in the kitchen. A brand new kitchen is in pristine condition with brand new, stylish appliances and cabinetry. All it needs is your personal touch to make it truly your own.

Try these fun ways to personalize your new home’s kitchen with color.

Easy, Quick Touches of Color

  • Place a colorful vase of flowers or bowl of fruit on the island or table as a centerpiece.
  • Choose tea towels, placemats and scatter rugs in your favorite colors. Don’t be afraid of bright colors or bold patterns with these; you can easily swap them out if it turns out you don’t like the look.
  • Put some artwork on the walls. This can be anything from a traditional painting to a framed poster, a group of photographs or even an arrangement of decorative plates. Just remember to keep fine pieces of art away from cooking areas.

 Small Projects with Big Impact

  • Reupholster your kitchen chairs or bar stools to make them stand out as décor pieces. For non-upholstered chairs, you can paint them or add seat cushions or chair covers.
  • Add fabric window treatments, either off-the-shelf or custom made.
  • Swap out cabinet knobs and drawer pulls for more colorful ones. You may be surprised at the variety and affordability of unique hardware available.

If you’re ready for a bigger project, consider pumping up your paint colors. You may want to start by painting the island base in a new color before moving on to the walls or cabinets.

With any of these changes, just remember to take the design of adjoining areas into consideration, especially if your kitchen is open-concept. A great tip is to carry a bit of the new color into the family room or dining room to create a cohesive design in your home.
