Unleash that artistic side of yours! Because this is your one opportunity to display it.

Get creative when it comes to shelves that store plates and glasses, by adding more interesting objects such as colorful cookbooks or decorative objects. 

2. Bay Window 

There’s nothing wrong with adding more natural light, in fact, it’s actually better! Since it brightens up the room and creates the illusion of a bigger space.

You can even spice it up by adding a floating countertop which can act as your work area with a beautiful view.

Make your work less stressful and more relaxing! 

3. Paintings

Hanging paintings is another form of expressing your artistic side. Don’t just limit them to the living room, expand it to the kitchen!

This lifts the kitchen up and gives it a vibrant touch.

However, do cover the paintings with glass coverage in case of splatters.  

4. Greenery

Giving your kitchen a touch of nature is a brilliant idea! Hanging plants or wall-mounted planters filled with herbs.

Not only do they give life to your kitchen, they can also be useful to you during cooking! With fresh herbs ready to be picked.

Even small plants with tiny vegetables are a good idea! You can improve the taste of your cooking this way, because what’s better than fresh vegetables in reach. 

5. Accent wall

What other way to lift up a boring kitchen? An accent wall!

Just one can of paint is able to make a huge difference. Paint one wall a bold color and it’ll transform your bland kitchen into something more vibrant and colorful. 

6. Showcase Pots And Pans

Pots and pans aren’t just for cooking, they can also be used for display especially if they’re a collection of copper/silver cookware.

By hanging them on the wall, you create a traditional-styled look which is perfect for when you’re looking to make your kitchen cozier and home-like.  

7. Display Plates

Don’t just keep those fancy dishes for the guests!

Put them to good use by hanging them on the wall using plate hangers, instead of letting them fill the cupboards. You free up more storage this way and make your empty wall look less awkward at the same time.

See? Helpful and decorative!
