Choosing a theme for your new kitchen can be a tough decision to make. Themed kitchens have become a major trend over the last few years- they are practical, uniform and show a large amount of personality.
How to Choose the Perfect Theme for Your Kitchen
Why have a standard kitchen when you can choose an amazing theme that shows the best side of your kitchen and your family? From traditional farmhouse to beach house, the options are endless. Here are 5 tips to help you choose the perfect theme for your kitchen:
Determine Your Budget
The first thing to do when choosing a theme for your new kitchen is to determine what your budget is. By doing this, you are able to predict what you can buy and what you can possibly do yourself for a more cost-effective price. If you do not have a budget, then feel free to go wild. If you are on a budget, feel free to get creative in order to remain within the decided budget.
Make it Personal
Nothing is worse than choosing a kitchen theme that is trendy, but you hate! Ensure that the chosen theme is something that appeals to you, and only you. Also, whilst you are planning your kitchen, ensure you leave room for some personal touches to give your kitchen a more ‘homely’ feel.
Choose a Focal Point
If you were to dress-up your whole kitchen according to the theme, it may end up looking cluttered and disorganized. If your kitchen has an island or a free wall space, you may want to decorate this section up, as opposed to your whole kitchen. Focusing on one area of your kitchen is a great idea, as it saves you money by not doing your whole kitchen, as well as giving your kitchen a tastefully aesthetic look.
Analyse Your Kitchen
If you live in an old, stone farmhouse, it would be a complex and expensive renovation to transform your kitchen into a ‘beach house’ theme. You may want to stick with a ‘farmhouse’ theme, or simply ‘earth tones’. It is important to look around your house and examine what you already have, then work from there.
Do it Over a Period of Time
Rushing into decorating a themed kitchen often results in a shabby, over-decorated final look. Once you have decided on the theme for your kitchen, take your time decorating it. Find pieces for your kitchen at different department stores, instead of buying everything at once, simply because it is all there. You may pick up the most gorgeous items from places you would never have thought, therefore, don’t set a time limit on decorating.
