While your kitchen could look fabulous as-is, what would it look like without that bothersome wall? If you’re unsure if this is possible – consult a structural engineer or architect to see what possibilities there are for your kitchen. From updating finishes and materials to bringing in color, illumination, and space – the options abound for your outdated kitchen. While you may not use all 10 of these ideas, see which ones are perfect for your lifestyle, budget, and family.
The compartmentalized and boxed-in feeling of outdated kitchens built generations ago is very common. If you’re looking to open up your kitchen and share the view with an adjacent dining room or living room – consider knocking down some partitions! This method works well for non load-bearing walls that don’t carry any structural value. Your kitchen can grow in size or it can just get opened up to other areas of your home.
In a modern style kitchen, furniture should be laminate or lacquered, smooth color or combination of two contrasting colors. For a rustic kitchen, nothing better than the dark woods or the maple. An industrial kitchen should feature stainless steel furniture combining with a light wood countertop. For a traditionally Indian kitchen: choose bright colours and ethnically inspired tiles. Lastly, for a minimalist kitchen: it must have white or black lacquered or textured modules.
