Between the kids, the groceries, the bills and everything else in between, out kitchen counter tops seem to always be cluttered and chaotic. Not to mention, they’re never stylish enough to act as a decor-worthy aspect of the room. Well, let’s nix the attitude that kitchen counters are made for piling and get inspired. Take a peek at some of our finds and ideas on how to take those tops and turn them into organized and styled piece of your kitchen! We love this idea for the pantry but it works just as well for the counter tops too! Use different containers and different labels for an organized, yet funky, youthful look!
Cork flooring in the kitchen can be a lovely rustic aesthetic to your home, plus with its sustainability factor, cork is a lovely choice instead of wood. Cork trees regrow every nine years, while trees such as maple take up to 30 years or more to replenish, thus using them are kinder to the environment. In the kitchen, cork works well when set against modern colors, such as lime green. They provide the perfect background for a bit of color saturation. Although it might not be considered eco-friendly at first glance, mounting your kitchen faucet to the wall can make a huge difference in the layout of the room. It allows for more space, which is especially advantageous in smaller kitchens. This maximizes your efficiency, allowing for more people to work at the sink simultaneously, which can also save you water.
You can have the traditional set of dining room chairs, but give them an updated look. Plaid is a pattern that is back in fashion, and it looks lovely without losing its classic appeal when used in dining room chairs. Choose dining room chairs that are of a different shape to suit your room better. Round or oval shapes work wonderfully with round tables, plus these can be matched with other shapes in the room to create balance. Make the head of table chairs match each other, leaving the rest of the chairs in a different design. This is highly effective as an update to your chair set, plus it can help to evoke a certain mood you wish to achieve.
Even if the bar stool is the only color in the entire neutral space, it can be enough to add fresh life and personality. You’ll want to measure your counter height and make sure there is enough space between the bar stool seat and the bottom of the counter. A 10”-12” difference is recommended for optimum comfort and functionality. Metal has many benefits as a bar stool medium. It is durable, easy to clean, and stylishly versatile. Metal bar stools also tend to be visually lighter-weight than other types of stools, which is definitely something to keep in mind. By their very nature of being wood, wooden frame bar stools tend to carry more visual punch than other materials, which are able to be manipulated for weight-bearing capacities. Wooden frames can be quite versatile, as they look fantastic in a cottage setting as well as provide a lovely earthy contrast in a more contemporary one.
