Everyone loves to visit friends’ homes and see how they’ve decorated their kitchens. They’re always so clean and organized. But there’s always one person who has a kitchen that looks attractive, which makes you envious. Don’t settle for having an average-looking kitchen when you can easily design your kitchen in a way that will impress everyone! Here is a list of kitchen design ideas that will make your friends JEALOUS, or at least jealous enough to swallow their pride and give you a call for a free house-design-advice meeting. Enjoy!
- Farmhouse Sink
A farmhouse sink is a classic option that never goes out of style. It’s large enough to accommodate pots, pans, and other items but not so large that it takes up too much space. The wood-look countertop adds an authentic touch to this room, while the white cabinets give it an airy feel. Add in some artwork on the wall, along with some decorative pieces like flower vases or candles, and you have yourself a perfect space for cooking!
- Coffee Bar
If you love coffee as much as we do, then a coffee bar might be just the thing for your kitchen! This is a beautiful example of how to create a custom bar that flows seamlessly into the rest of your kitchen. The island top has plenty of space for stowing mugs and cups, plus it makes it easy to serve guests from there as well. (And who doesn’t want to start their morning with an espresso?)
- Butcher Block Top
A butcher block countertop is another great way to add some character to your kitchen without spending too much money. Butcher block can be sanded down over time, so it gets softer and more worn-in looking, which adds even more charm! You can also stain it any color you want — here, they’ve gone with redwood, but walnut or cherry would work beautifully too.
- Undercabinet Lighting
Undercabinet lighting is a great way to add extra light, especially if you’re short on overhead lighting. It’s also a great way to highlight architectural details, such as crown molding, that might otherwise be lost in a dark kitchen.
- Recycled Glass Countertops
For a more natural look, consider using recycled glass countertops. They come in many different colors and textures, so you can easily find something that matches your personal style. If you want something even more unique, consider using recycled glass tiles as an accent on your countertops!
- Open Shelving
Open shelving can be used as a decorative element in any kitchen design — but it looks especially great in modern farmhouse kitchens! Try placing some baskets or boxes on top of your open shelves for extra storage without taking up valuable countertop space…and don’t forget about those beautiful plants!
- Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl flooring is a great choice if you want to add some color to your kitchen without going overboard or spending too much money. Vinyl tiles are also easy to install and replace if they get damaged over time. They’re also great because they’re waterproof so they won’t stain easily or absorb moisture like wood floors can do. This makes them ideal for kitchens where spills and messes are common occurrences!
- Very Shaker-Style Cabinets
Very Shaker-style cabinets are characterized by their simple, clean lines and their use of simple materials. They can be made from wood or metal and either painted or stained. These are often used in industrial kitchens because they are cheap and easy to clean. They also work well for small spaces because they don’t take up much room on the wall.
- Seating Area
A seating area is a great way to make your kitchen more inviting and comfortable to spend time in. It’s also a great place for kids to do homework, especially if you have an island with barstools or bar chairs around it. If you don’t have enough space for a seating area, consider adding an island with barstools or chairs around it instead of having a table in the middle of the room that takes up space but doesn’t serve any function other than eating at (which is what it was designed for).
- Highlight Kitchen Stove
If you have a fancy stove (or even just one that looks nice), consider painting it a bright color so that it stands out against the rest of the room. This will help draw attention away from other less-attractive elements in the room, like cabinets or appliances. If there’s not enough space for two colors, try using one bold shade on top and another more subtle color below (like white).
In total, there are plenty of kitchen design ideas that you can use to start transforming your kitchen into your dream space. Whether you’re adding a major renovation project or just looking to make a few changes, you have plenty of options to choose from. Start with one or two small ideas and keep adding as you go along. It may be hard to decide on just one thing, but the result will be worth the effort.
