7 Steps To A Pretty And Practical Kitchen

Having a pretty and practical kitchen can help to give your home the ‘wow’ factor. The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home. Just think of the many ways you use it! Maybe you use it to cook, eat, entertain friends, and take care of work at home. That makes this room one of the most important and multitasking throughout the whole house. Having both a pretty and practical kitchen is essential to get the most out of it. Here are 7 steps you can take to create your own!

Figure Out How You Use Your Kitchen Most

Write a list of the ways you use your kitchen currently, or the way in which you’d like to use your kitchen. If you want to use it to entertain friends, but you just don’t have the space, is there a way you could add more space? Perhaps you could go open plan, or get rid of cabinets that don’t get a lot of use. When you figure out what’s important to you, you’ll be able to create the most beautiful kitchen that you love spending time in.

Come Up With Your Favorite Theme

Coming up with your favorite theme can be tough, especially with so many out there. However, there are all kinds of places you can go for inspiration. Pinterest is a great place to start, or you could just ask a reputable company like Cane Brothers Kitchen Company for advice on the space you have now. When you have a theme you know you won’t get bored of, you’ll love the look of your kitchen.

Look At Your Kitchen Like A Clean Slate

Try to look past what your kitchen looks like now and look at it like a blank canvas; a clean slate. Start all over again. How could it look if you were to gut it out and start all over again? You’d be surprised at what you can create when you look at it like this! 


Make Sure Your Lighting Is On Point

Lighting in the kitchen is crucial. You need task lighting to prepare food, and you may even need it if you like to work in the kitchen. Make sure you have the right bulbs, and that they are placed in the right areas too. If they’re in the wrong place, they could start casting shadows that will hinder your cooking!

Add A Focal Point

Having a few focal points in the home is a great way to create interest and add personality. In the kitchen, it’s a good idea to do this with your backsplash. You can easily create a great display of pretty tiles without having to spend too much money or time.

 Make Sure You Have Plenty Of Space For Prepping Food

You're going to need lots of space for prepping food, so make sure you have that. This is the reason kitchen islands have become so popular!

Ensure You Are Using The Space Optimally

Are you really using your kitchen space optimally? Is there a better lay out, or something you could get rid of to create a better space? There are apps you can use online to help you.

Have fun creating a pretty and practical kitchen!
