Spice Up Your Kitchen With These 5 Design Tips

The kitchen is where you and your family spend the majority of time in the home. Why not spice up your kitchen with these five design tips in order to make the most of your kitchen space?

1. Build an Herb Garden in Your Kitchen Windows

With a built in herb garden in your kitchen, you will always have quick and easy access to fresh herbs to use in your everyday cooking. Herbs like basil, sage and rosemary are all hearty and easy to grow, even for those who don’t have a green thumb. To do, just install several shelves in your kitchen windows. Purchase mini pots of herbs from your local nursery.

2. Use Towel Racks to Hang Implements

During the course of cooking any meal, you’ll use a variety of implements. Make cooking a pleasure by hanging spoons, spatulas and ladles where you can easily reach them. Install towel racks along the backsplash and use S-hooks to hang the tools you use most often.

3. Use Ceiling Space

The kitchen ceiling is one of the most underutilized storage areas. Instead of storing pots and pans in cupboards, install a beautiful hanging pot rack over your kitchen island. Pots and pans will be easily accessible and you’ll be able to show off your copper-bottomed cookery.

4. Display Cookbooks With Built-In Shelving

Cookbooks belong in the kitchen where they are used – not in the living room or study. Have built-shelving installed on the ends of cabinets to hold your favorite tomes of recipes.

5. Install Under-Cabinet Lighting

Under-cabinet lighting helps illuminate the tasks you perform most often in the kitchen, including cutting, mixing, stirring and blending. At night, under-cabinet lighting pulls double-duty as a night light for those seeking a midnight snack.

These five kitchen design tips will help to make your kitchen more functional as well as more inviting for you and your family and friends.

Alternatively, another way to spice up your kitchen is to remodel and give it a beautiful update. If you want custom kitchen remodeling services, contact a kitchen design contractor at Holland Kitchens & Baths today,
