What do you think about white kitchens? White flooring; white countertops; white, white, white! As a home decorator, I’ve got a pretty much white kitchen to re-design with very little budget! How would you work with this delemma?
The cabinets, countertops and floor are all in pretty good condition, and since we don’t have a lot in the home decorating budget for re-doing it all, I have to find some ways to make it more interesting.
These photos make the cabinets look a little darker than they are. They are actually an “antiqued” white. The flooring is a very light tan but mostly white. It needs just a little color somewhere to give it more personality. So we step in with some practical home deocrating options.
Since home decorating is all about making your space a place that you like and want to come home to, different things appeal to different home owners.
Some home decorating things we could do to perk it up:
- Stain the existing cabinets a richer color
- Replace the countertop with a darker one
- Bring in splashes of color with lots of accessories
- Paint the backsplash a richer color
- Or add a tile backsplash in some texture-rich darker color.
Any one of these home decorating ideas would help to give this very nice kitchen a little more character. Which one we do will be up to the home-owner and their budget. Short of replacing the cabinets, countertop and flooring, there’s still much we can do to upgrade this kitchen. Give me your thoughts on what home decorating changes you’d make in this lovely kitchen.
