The kitchen is the heart of any home, where people spend a lot of time. But what is one supposed to do when the environment around them starts to get boring or when their soul asks for changes but starting a renovation is scary and expensive? It’s time to freshen up the main room in the house (in a way that uses the least amount of money and time).
We at Enlighten looked around the internet and learned about some designer tricks that only a few people actually use. It’s with their help that this room that is present in almost every home can be turned into a fresh and individual space.
1. Buying kitchenware in one style
You can have expensive and sophisticated kitchen furniture and modern built-in equipment and appliances, but the impression of all this luxury can be ruined by having mismatched old dishes or pieces that don’t go well with each other. It’s known that table settings are an important part of your kitchen decor, that’s why it is important that the dishes are chosen in the same style.
2. Use neutral-colored towels

Kitchen towels are essential to anyone who spends time in the kitchen. We use them often and barely notice it. That’s the reason why we should keep in mind that this item is an important part of the interior. When choosing kitchen textiles, it’s better to opt for neutral and natural shades. You will be able to give your room a stylish and attractive look with the help of this decor, not to mention the fact that it will make the kitchen look more expensive.
3. Changing the faucet

Not only is the faucet a thing that supplies water but it is also an important part of the interior ensemble. It can easily add a unique feature to the design of the room. For example, today it’s contactless, duo-colored, and colorful models that are trendy. By opting for an unusual color (white, black, or bronze), you can make your kitchen look unique.
4. Storing dishwashing agents in special dispensers
It is important that all necessary things are at hand in the kitchen. Still, having the area around the sink crowded with cleaning detergents doesn’t look nice. Try pouring these detergents into special dispensers that you can buy in any home-goods store. These functional accessories will decorate the space, while the work surface will instantly start to look much more organized. The main thing to keep in mind is that the dispensers you choose need to harmonize with and match the overall interior and any other accessories.
5. Decorating glass doors with curtains

It’s actually quite easy to freshen up the interior without spending a lot of money. Add curtains to the glass doors of the upper kitchen cabinets. This decor will give a certain charm and coziness to the room and hide your kitchenware from other people’s eyes. It’s best if the curtains are made from the same fabric as the curtains on the windows.
6. Installing sockets that match the color of the interior
Sockets that don’t match the interior by way of style and color (and that are oftentimes installed crookedly) look like a leaning photo frame on the wall that cannot be straightened. They can ruin the overall impression of the kitchen with their look. That’s why you should opt for sockets that match the color of the kitchen tiles in order not to make them stand out of the overall interior. Installing hidden sockets might be an even better solution.
7. Storing things in boxes
If there is some space between the upper kitchen cabinets and the ceiling, you will probably always be trying to put something up there. This is actually not a bad thing, because any space should be used to the fullest. But if you place a basket or a box on this shelf, this space won’t look as messy and it will be easier for you to keep the room organized. Moreover, it will protect any kitchen utensils from getting dirty.
8. Decorating the kitchen with flowers
Flowers can become the final part of refreshing your kitchen. They will liven up the room, make it look festive, and boost your mood. There is no need to wait for a special occasion to treat yourself.
