How to work your Personality into your Kitchen Design

Incorporate your personality into your kitchen.

The kitchen is often the social hub of the home. People gather here to watch homeowners cook and sample all the tasty morsels that are created. It can be a challenge to incorporate your personal design aesthetic into the room because there are so many functional components like appliances, cabinetry, utensils and more. However, with a bit of creativity you can put your own special stamp on your vintage kitchen design.

    Using color

Homeowners and interior designers love to bring color into the kitchen. It helps brighten up the room while letting your personal style shine. If you are a risk-taker, paint your cabinets a bright hue like yellow, green or blue. Or you can opt to throw a fresh coat of paint on your floors. For an industrial look, install a cement floor and paint it the shade of your choice.

    Updating fixtures

If you want your kitchen to look polished and refined, choose faucets to match that aesthetic. You can pick up sleek pot fillers, water filtration faucets or other models that have the features and look of your choice.

    Utilizing art in creating fashion

Artwork is one of the best ways to show off your personality. However, with cabinets taking up lots of room, there are often only a few places to hang framed paintings or prints. Look for creative places to put your artwork to show your style and ability to think outside the box. For example, there is often space between your ceiling and the top of your cabinets. Turn that surface into a mini art gallery. Just hang your artwork or lean the frames against the wall, which is a trendy look.

    Making it homely

To incorporate your personality, you may need to make your space look more homely. You can achieve this result by bringing in untraditional pieces of furniture like a table and chairs. For instance, a large antique dresser could serve as your center island. Chances are it has lots of style and is distressed to fit in with your vintage aesthetic.

    Adding in botanicals

You can instantly show off your personality in your kitchen with plants. Choose containers that display your favorite colors and patterns, or you can go for a rustic look and seek out terra cotta options. If you are known for your eco-friendly lifestyle you can install a living wall full of herbs. It’s a system of containers that allows you to plant your favorite botanicals or other plants to help brighten up your space.
