Three months have gone by since we welcomed the New Year, but you probably still haven’t found the time to follow up on your resolution to spend more time eating healthy food. If that’s the case, you may find that making your kitchen look brighter and more user-friendly will help unleash the Jamie Oliver inside you! So, here are some easy-on-the-pocket ideas which can give your kitchen a new inviting look.
Bring the light into your kitchen! Ambient lighting plays a major role in the outlook of your kitchen, or any room for that matter. One thing that can help you to achieve this is the so-called task lighting. Task lightings illuminate specific spots of your kitchen, such as countertops, stoves or any other surfaces where the magic happens. Additionally, so-called accent lightings highlight all the food preparation areas. The recessed lightings can shine from the ceiling with both dimming and brightening capabilities. The perfect combination of both your task lighting and accent lighting will create a warm yet user-friendly look to your kitchen.
Another advice we’ve got for you is refreshing your kitchen’s backsplash. Have you ever thought about adding colourful mosaic tiles to your kitchen? These tiles come in various materials including marble, stone and metal. In addition to the materials used, you can choose different shapes as well. Furthermore, you can play around with the mural by arranging small and large tiles to create something very creative. There are companies in Dubai who can design mosaics for you. Just ask the shops selling tiles and they’ll put you in touch with them. Alternatively, try your hand at DIY.
Okay, this is not quite easy-on-the-pocket, but nothing makes a kitchen modern as state-of-the-art kitchen suppliances. A presence of a modern, multi-functional refrigerator, for example, will greatly help your makeover. Most new kitchen appliances are much more sophisticated, so you will have upgrades both aesthetically and practically. Fortunately, Dubai’s tax-free environment allows you to buy appliances like dishwashers and cooking ovens at very affordable prices. Just head out to any mall.
When redesigning your kitchen, you can’t go wrong with classic and ornate cutlery. You can always leave your dishes tucked away behind closed doors. But, if they are colourful and vibrant, why not display them? This will also help free up storage space. All you need to do to make this happen is head out to a shopping mall and buy a place rack. These are very affordable and equally easy to install.
