What are some examples of a DIY kitchen design

One example of a DIY kitchen design is removing the overhead cabinets in a small kitchen to make the room look more spacious. Instead of cabinets, opt for open shelves, pot racks and magnetic knife holders. A smaller kitchen can also be used to extend the living area by using the extra wall space provided by the removal of the upper cabinets to display paintings, photographs and other decorations.

Another example of a DIY kitchen design is to incorporate more glass into the kitchen to make the room feel more spacious. This includes adding touches such as glass tables or counters, glass cabinet doors or reflective glass tiles. Mirrors can also be placed strategically around the room to give the illusion of more space. Placing an arched window or a counter pass-through in the kitchen will also give the room a more open feeling.
Add more lighting to the design of the kitchen to change the room's atmosphere. Counteract the blue tinge that florescent lighting adds to the room by installing incandescent lighting instead. For instance, incandescent spot lighting can be used to increase the shadowing of the space when directed at cabinetry. The contrast between the light and dark areas created in the room will give the space more visual movement.

How do you decorate a kitchen

How do you decorate a kitchen - To decorate or renovate a kitchen, try a change of paint on the cabinets and walls. Other ideas include changing the backsplash tiles, installing shelves, highlighting one or two dramatic pieces, adding pops of color and having a unified color scheme if the main colors are bright and bold.

Change old, chipped or faded backsplash tiles to new ones that feature a dramatic or unusual pattern or color. For small spaces, try all-white tiles with a black zigzag pattern running through the backsplash.
For kitchens with a neutral color scheme, add cushions, linens and accessories in different shades of the main color to add warmth and texture. Alternatively, add pops of vibrant color in the form of vases, painted metal chairs, rugs, container sets and so on. Keep to one or two bright color choices to create this effect.
Avoid countertop clutter by installing shelving (either open or closed) in all the available wall spaces. The wall behind open shelves can be lined with wallpaper to match the rest of the kitchen.
To decorate an open kitchen, add a big table to connect the living space and kitchen, and hang a dramatic light fixture over it. If a wall connects the two spaces, install a book shelf for the family's favorite tomes, a decorative mirror or a piece of art.
