Kitchen Design Ideas

If you’re looking for a way to spruce up your home without spending a ton of money, then two of the best things you can do for your kitchen are new window treatments and re-facing your old kitchen cabinets. Cabinets are the focal point of any kitchen, as they are what you see as soon as you enter. If you are tired of your kitchen looking drab an unappealing, then your cabinets could be the cause of this. Re-facing your old kitchen cabinets does not cost as much as completely replacing them, but it does provide you with a new updated look, which you can enjoy for several years to come.

Even just lightening or darkening the wood finish on your cabinets can mean the difference between a welcoming kitchen, and a dark kitchen. The project can be done over the course of a weekend and with proper instruction, you can do it yourself, without having to hire

someone else to do the work for you and possibly spending more than you feel comfortable with.

Another great way to breathe new life into your kitchen is by creating your own custom kitchen window treatments. Your window treatments should be a statement about your home and your tastes, so picking treatments, which are an expression of your personality, will reflect well on your home. Window treatments, such as kitchen tier curtains are not hard to make, especially if you have some sewing experience. You can choose fabrics, which reflect your tastes, without spending hundreds of dollars on retail treatments.

Aside from making your own custom kitchen window treatments, you should also consider the rods you will be using to hang them, as there are many different styles, which go well with certain overall styles. If you are trying to piece together a certain look, which you enjoy, being sure you have the proper rods, which accentuate the look instead of taking away, and distracting the eye from the look you are trying to achieve.

Regardless of which method you choose to pursue to bring some life back to your kitchen, you will find that once you are finished, your new look will last for years to come. With the knowledge of re-facing your kitchen cabinets and creating custom window treatments, if you ever tire of your new look, you can repeat the process in order to gain a new and fresh look all over again.
