Kitchens are about functionality and space efficiency. But decor is also important. You have to like the way your kitchen looks and you have to spend time there. That’s why you need to make changes from time to time to make the décor look new and fresh again. It can be a simple and refreshing change and the results can be very impressive. We have some tips to help you achieve this without spending a lot of money.
Remove the upper cabinet doors.

An easy way to change the decor in your kitchen is to give up some of the features, such as the doors of your upper cupboards. In this way, you open the cupboards and free up their interiors. You get open shelves instead of hidden storage. And you don’t have to spend any money at all. In fact, you can also use the cabinet doors for another project.
Use panel paint

Paint a wall or cupboard with board paint and turn it into a writing surface.
Using panel paint is a very simple and cheap solution if you want to change the atmosphere in a room and update the decor. In the kitchen, board surfaces are very useful as you can write recipes, notes, shopping lists and many other useful things on them.
Paint the floor
The white floor makes the kitchen appear more open and spacious
Another good way to change the decor and atmosphere in the kitchen is to give your floor a new and fresh look. By painting the floor, you open the kitchen when you use a light color to add color or pattern and to create a striking feature for the room. You can use neutral, vibrant colors, combinations of colors or patterns.
Add simple shelves
Simple wooden shelves that contrast with the white wall and are ideal for storage
You can never have too much storage space in the kitchen. So if you want to make a change but don’t want to renovate the entire room, you can simply add a few new features. For example, you can add some shelves. Place them above the sink, next to the window or wherever you have free space. You can use the shelves for storage or display.
Buy fat new dishes
White, open shelves are ideal for storing colourful food as they stand out from the crowd.
If you want to add some colour to your kitchen, you don’t necessarily have to change the furniture or repaint the floor. You can just add a few things that you need anyway. For example, you can replace some of your dishes or you can just buy some new ones that have bright colors. Display them on an open shelf and let them become part of the decor.
