Cork flooring in the kitchen can be a lovely rustic aesthetic to your home, plus with its sustainability factor, cork is a lovely choice instead of wood. Cork trees regrow every nine years, while trees such as maple take up to 30 years or more to replenish, thus using them are kinder to the environment. In the kitchen, cork works well when set against modern colors, such as lime green. They provide the perfect background for a bit of color saturation. Although it might not be considered eco-friendly at first glance, mounting your kitchen faucet to the wall can make a huge difference in the layout of the room. It allows for more space, which is especially advantageous in smaller kitchens. This maximizes your efficiency, allowing for more people to work at the sink simultaneously, which can also save you water.
It can be very easy to fall into the trap of a dull and generic kitchen design. We often tend to stick to a colour palette of white and grey because it makes life a lot easier. However, your kitchen is supposed to be a place that inspires creativity. You are going to be cooking meals in this room every day. Don’t you want it to be somewhere that looks innovative and stylish? If you really want to give your kitchen a show-stopping edge you should opt for bright shades. A lot of people are scared to go down this route because they believe it will be overpowering. But if you opt for bright pops of colour like this kitchen you’ll be just fine. Play towards the fun factor with some pop art and contemporary accessories.
Ensuring that you have proper lighting in the kitchen is not just practical, but it can be a style element, too. Place light fixtures over the center of the room where you will have your kitchen counter. Make sure that the lights hang at a length that provides you with enough lighting. If you require extra lights, consider spotlights on the ceiling that do their job without getting in the way of the light fixtures. Now for the décor bit: choose light fixtures or chandeliers that have a striking design. Kitchen windows are an important part of the room because they add a charming element to it. Of course, bringing in extra light is also vital to prevent a dull kitchen. The windows are the perfect place for a bit of a style injection. A window covering or valance adds some décor delight to your kitchen while still letting the light shine in.
The wheels on a kitchen island don’t necessarily mean that you have to also use it in other rooms as well. They’re just as useful for moving the island around just a few inches, to make it easier for you when prepping or cooking. When you have a small kitchen like this one placed in the corner of the living room, a portable kitchen island can be of great use. Take wherever you need it or push it away if you want to move more freely in the kitchen. Also, it can allow you to extend the kitchen into the living room. The most wonderful thing about mobile kitchen islands on wheels is that they allow to easily reconfigure the space. Your kitchen can get a whole new look in just seconds. Here, for example, the island were intentionally moved closer to the stove for the picture. There’s also another practical detail about kitchen islands on wheels. Although it’s a small thing, it can prove to be very useful: cleaning becomes easier when you can move the furniture around.
