Decorating the kitchen can be an expensive proposition, but if you are on a budget, look around you to see what you may have in your home, that you can use to brighten up your kitchen. Do you have some nice dishes tucked away in cabinets that you could display on a counter top? Plate racks are inexpensive and plates look good standing in strategic places on the counter. You can even look in second hand stores for some cheap plates with a design that may go with your kitchen colors or decor, and all it will cost you is a couple of dollars. How about decorating the kitchen with some woven baskets you may have around your home. These look great if you are trying to create a rustic type of atmosphere in your kitchen. Having them placed along the top of your cabinets and perhaps a couple on your counter tops holding some fruit can add that rustic charm. I have even seen baskets used as a window valance and they looked really effective.
Solar Power: While many people think that solar energy only comes in the form of a whole-house system that includes panels that cover the roof of your home, there are other options that can provide solar power for efficient applications that are much less complicated. Rather than taking on the large scale solar conversion for all your electric needs, you could consider a small solar system that runs your water heater to take care of all your hot water needs which can help add to your eco friendly kitchen design. These systems are compact, and designed to work exclusively on your electric hot water heater system. This type of system costs only a fraction of what a whole-house solar system costs, and can save you hundreds of dollars per year off your electric bill.
