Kitchen Delights - Kitchen Design


By Lori Wawczak



Our kitchens have long been the center of our homes! Many of us have happy memories of the wonderful aromas we remember when our mother’s were baking. And, since so much of our time is spent in our kitchens, it’s natural that when considering remodeling or redecorating this space, you would want your décor to be comforting and satisfying – just like a great meal! It’s also very important to be sure that your new redecorated kitchen reflects your likes and your personality!

Above all else, I suggest you consider making your decorating scheme reflect your personality. Are you a gourmet cook? Then, why not consider incorporating some unique utensils and gadgets in your new décor – wooden spoons, spice graters, whisks, copper molds, etc., are all great kitchen accessories. And, because many of these accessories can be hung on the walls, your new kitchen makeover will actually provide you with a two fold purpose – redecorating your space, and making these vital items more accessible as you cook!

Picking a great color plan is also important. Often, color choices are dictated by the “given’s in your room – flooring, appliances, cabinets, countertops – so let your good judgment prevail. If you really want a drastic change and your color choices don’t blend with your “givens” consider changing what you can now, and replace other items over time. What’s most important is that your colors be of the same intensity and tone.

Window treatments for the kitchen are wide and varied in style. In fact, more and more homeowners are opting for uniquely designed fabric top treatments, usually placed over a privacy treatment like wood blinds, cellular shades or pleated shades. Kitchen window treatments don’t have to be 100% utilitarian. Swags and jabot treatments do have their place in the kitchen. Sometimes a simple scalloped valance in a patterned fabric, edged in a contrasting cording is just enough to add pizzazz to a ho-hum room. Stagecoach valances, mock throw swags, tabbed valances; all displayed on unique decorative rods can really fit the bill to!

And don’t forget those little special accents that give any room a total decorative look. You’ll need to consider repeating your fabric selection in other areas of your kitchen for a truly coordinated look. How about adding some upholstered seat cushions, pillows on chairs, lining on the insides of cabinets, shelves and hutches. Tablecloths, placemats, table runners and coordinating napkins are also a must!

So have fun with your kitchen! Just remember, be sure to let your cooking personality and color preferences shine through.
