Kitchen Decorating Ideas
It’s a Sunday morning and you’re sitting in the kitchen waiting for your coffee machine to finish its cycle, so you can have that vital early morning cup of coffee. Idly, you look around your kitchen and notice a spot of paint missing from the corner of the door. It had happened years ago, but you never really took any notice of it until now.
Your gaze continues to wander and your eye spots a patch of mildew seeping in just under the sink, then you notice the ugly brown colour that your ceiling has turned just above where the cooker stands.
The paint is slightly off colour, and the only papered wall is beginning to look old-fashioned and faded. You take a fortifying sip of your now-ready coffee and decide that some kitchen decorating is called for.
How do you go about it though? And how soon can you get into it? Now that you’ve finally noticed all the little bits and pieces of decay that you were quite successfully ignoring up until that moment, you can’t wait to begin your little kitchen decorating project.
That however is where the crunch comes. Just how modest do you want to keep your kitchen decorating project? Can you get away with sloshing a fresh coat of paint on everything or will you need to go to the lengths of stripping the wallpaper off the wall, and finding out where that mildew stain might be coming from.
Naturally enough, it all depends on you and your budget, but if you can spare the time, energy and money, you’d probably do better, in the long run. to solve all your kitchen decorating problems in one go. That would include stripping off the wallpaper, replacing any carpeting or rugs, and maybe even sanding down your wooden floors if you have those. If you’re going to do a complete job of kitchen decorating however then you’ll also need that all important final coat of fresh paint to smarten up your kitchen.
You may also want to think about replacing those old lace curtains as they’re also probably looking distinctly ratty by now. So go ahead and splash out on your kitchen decorating project and replace the curtains and while you’re at it you might want to think of investing in a new set of tea towels as well. It doesn’t hurt to go all out when you can.
And when you’re finally done, you can sit back and enjoy your new kitchen and remember that weekend morning that started it all off. You’ll have no regrets whatsoever, since your kitchen decorating project has landed you with a better kitchen than you ever expected.
A feeling of content engulfs you as you raise your new coffee mug to your lips. Life just doesn’t get any better than when you’re enjoying the fruits of your effort.
