The Unlikely Social Hub
For many years, the kitchen has been considered the social hub of the home. From friendly chats to family disputes, thousands of conversations have taken place over the kitchen table.
Your kitchen, just like the rest of the home, says a lot more about you than you might think, and so it’s important to consider the impression your kitchen is making. For those mundane conversations, the friendly visits which go on well into the night, and the life-altering discussions to carry on taking place over the kitchen table, it’s very important that the kitchen gives out the right message.
With that in mind, it’s essential that, when decorating or finishing the most important room in your home, you finish it in a style that is inviting, comforting and welcoming.
Decorating your kitchen
Whatever the size of your kitchen, consider that it’s often the first place you visit in the morning. Whether you dart in on a busy morning to switch the kettle on or settle down for a long family breakfast, the room is often the one where you wake up and welcome the new day.
For this reason, many people choose bright and vivacious tones when choosing the colour of their kitchen. Bright sunny yellows are a particular favourite, because even in the face of a long harsh winter, the sun reinvigorates us.
It’s all very well and good choosing a nice strong colour for the hub of your home, but if the rest of the kitchen is letting you down, then you may be sending out mixed messages.
Take the time to look at the other fixtures in your kitchen and ensure that they’re working just as hard as your colour is. From a good clean to a complete replacement, one of the fastest ways to give your kitchen a lift is with the cupboards.
Once the furniture is looking its best, it’s time to turn to the finishes. Although pictures and signs can add a welcoming feel to your kitchen, if you’re looking for something a little different, why not consider the use of wall art stickers? Giving you the benefits of a piece of original art but with the ease of immediate application and removability, giant wall stickers could give your kitchen the welcoming feel you’ve always wanted at a fraction of the cost of an original mural. What’s more, with custom wall stickers designed specifically for you and your kitchen, you could add a unique feel to your essential room.
