World's Largest Selection of Decorative Switch Plates

Make your kitchen fun and livable with light and color

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. It's where food is prepared and sometimes enjoyed, and with mealtimes often being  some of the few times during the week when busy families sit down, it should be a place that the chef of the house enjoys spending time in. 

Add more than a splash of color 
Color is essential to any room in the house. Whether it's bright or subdued, it sets the mood and can make a powerful statement if executed with flair. Houzz suggested mixing it up by having bright colors that are offset by white. Paint the sides of the island in your kitchen something adventurous like turquoise or pink - whatever your favorite is! This will create a look that boasts a beautiful color scheme that immediately grabs the eye of guests without overwhelming their senses. 

Another fun way to add color to your cooking space is to install a backsplash behind the sink, or, as Better Homes and Gardens magazine suggested, behind a shelving unit. A unit that has the back cut out is ideal for this because the colors of the backsplash will shine through. By aligning the shelf with a window, you can ensure even brighter tones. To accent your brightened and improved kitchen, accent the look with something from Switch Hits' collection of Funky Ceramic decorative switch plates. This series has vibrant colors that can not only complement the room's colors, but be one of the standout pieces in the kitchen.

Find simple solutions that pop
Put your windows to work by hanging curtains that will shed whatever kind of light you want into the kitchen. This can be a fun do-it-yourself project. Simply go to your local sewing or craft store and pick a bolt of cloth that stands out to you and fits into the color scheme in your kitchen. Measure the window before purchasing the cloth so you know exactly how much you need. The material should be light enough to let the sunlight filter through and turn the room the shade of the curtain hanging in the window.

Orange is perfect for this project as it makes the light softer without taking away from the lovely color. Another great option is blue if you'd prefer something subtler, or keep it completely natural with white lace curtains that will let pure sunlight in. Try the Colors in Motion outlet covers collection to make a bold statement.
