Steps to decorate kitchen
Prior to decoration choosing an appropriate location for the kitchen is necessary. A kitchen is a place where a lot of time is spent starting from morning coffee till preparing meals. Consult your architect for selecting the ideal corner of the home for the kitchen so that is at an ideal distance from the living room and close to the dining area at the same time at a safe distance from toddlers and pets.
Generally the kitchen requires a considerable amount of area for storing basic amenities like fridge, microwave. But if you are planning to use the kitchen also as a dining space then it might require more space. Use the available space intelligently to save space.
Your kitchen should not look individual and separate from the rest of the ambience of the home. Keep the color of the kitchen coordinated. Obviously, it is avoidable to use overly dramatic dark shades like brown or bold red and lights shades like white or lime-yellow as they are not ideal. But choose a color that complements the tone and overall feel. Opt for vibrant patterns, tiles or motifs to create a unique vibe. Hues of red, blues will look marvelous.
