Revitalise an existing piece of furniture by painting it yourself.This is a great way to revamp old or mismatched wooden kitchen chairs or tired looking side tables and chests.Simply wipe down the piece and sand until smooth.Remove all the dust with a damp cloth and then use a wood primer to prepare the surface,before painting in your chosen color.
Opt for a bold color to make your furniture stand out.Why not choose bedside cabinets in a vivid green_they’ll look beautiful .
- Rationalise Appliances
Minimize the amount you keep in the kitchen .Appliances can be placed in a caller or another room;cleaning products can be stored under the stairs;and crockery and glassware may be stacked away in living room cupboard.
- Avoid eye-level units
Although wall mounted cupboards will give you extra storage space,they will also make the room seem cramped.Without them ,the perimeter of the room will be visible and the kitchen will seem more spacious.
- Wall of glass
Use glass for a kitchen wall or ceiling.Having a see-through rather than a solid barrier-even on just one side-will make a small kitchen seem bigger.
