Dezine Bytes – Interior Design Tips:

Wow where did January go?  Now that it is February, it is a great time, before spring is officially here, to reinvent your kitchen, a favorite gathering place to cook, eat and socialize. If a remodel is not in the forecast for 2018 even a simple change or two will make a lovely difference in your kitchen.

Begin by assessing what you used and did not use in 2017 and what you might consider changing? Reorganizing, tossing and recycling is a good start to make room for a new and fresh look.

One example is to display kitchen utensils in your favorite pitcher, vase, or container for easy access.  Or display faux plant/flower arrangements. Have fun with it!

Not ready to replace the cabinetry yet? A good cleaning and refinishing will do the trick. If you have oak cabinets and would like a different color, add a stain to change the finish.

New hardware enhances the space. Replace old drawer slides, add drawer organizers and dividers. Line drawers with wall covering for an added décor.

Add a new piece of artwork or add a chalkboard to keep track of all those reminders – paint manufacturers recently created a great chalkboard paint for walls–just add a molding to finish it off.

A floor mat to place in front of your sink and stove will add style as well as comfort.

Consider a decorative light fixture over the sink, or island; possibly add under cabinet lighting to provide more ambiance; update the main lighting with more lumens for ease of food preparation.

Remember, Dezine Refined is here to assist at any level of service you require.
