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.
Create an Ever-Evolving Accent Wall. This is the first idea we ever had after discovering the joys of chalkboard paint. Simply create your chalkboard between a pair of windows, on a small wall, or even make a border near the ceiling. The options are limitless - the placement does not even have to be convenient, as long as you do not plan to make constant changes. Use chalk markers instead of regular pieces of chalk to create a stunning graphic mural right on your kitchen wall. Did we mention that we love chalkboard paint? It is a simple, effective way to give your kitchen some quirky character. Just make sure to invest in dust-free chalk (teachers swear by it) to keep the dust off your food and dishes - after all, the kitchen chalkboard is all about functionality and convenience.
