Neutral and Elegant
If you want the elegant touch when renovating your kitchen, keep the color scheme neutral. For flooring, you can use the marble and same for the shelves. If you don’t want the expensive marble flooring and kitchen shelves, then you can go with the subway tiles. Use light or even white color for kitchen cabinets. It will give your kitchen a spacious, brighter and neutrally elegant look.

You can put a rustic wooden table in the middle. You can place bowls and even decorative items on it. You can put natural or even plastic fruit basket to give it a luxurious look. Leave some space on the table so that you can use it while cooking something. But yes you can’t use it as kitchen dining table, nor it was meant to be for that purpose.
For lighting up your kitchen, you can use stylish lighting hanging from the roof. You can rely on single one which is not actually preferable. The better idea is to use multiple hanging lights from the ceiling so that you may control the light as per your need.
To add the natural and green touch, you can use the table you placed in the center of the kitchen. Place a big vase in the middle and plant some natural plant with branches or you can go with the idea of the plastic version as well. Well, the aim is to give your kitchen a green touch.

Give it Bright Airy and Spacious Look

The kitchen cabinets give your kitchen a bulky and shadowy look which must be avoided. The kitchen should be a place where you should feel like you are in some brighter and spacious place.
Use proper light panels to keep it bright. Don’t use the dark colours for the walls instead you can choose some amazingly designed kitchen wallpapers. There’s an online store where you can check out this kitchen wallpaper which may suit your needs. Choose the light colours with eye-catching patterns.

Painting your wall is not a good idea because it may require a right amount of work. You will have to cover up everything. You will have to tape and wrap the portions where you don’t want to paint, and after paintwork, a lot of cleaning work will be required. So, kitchen wallpapers are the better idea for you because installation is easy and you don’t need to take the hassle of covering and wrapping everything to keep paint stains away.
Remove the extra cabinets and go with the idea of open shelves. Put everything on the shelf that you can put. Leave cabinets just for the things which you can’t keep in the open. It will give your kitchen a spacious look, and you will feel better in the kitchen. You can put a couple of kitchen stools at on the side of the table just in case you are tired of standing while cooking so that you may take a little rest for a while.
Add a Charming Touch
