So you've just installed some new bespoke cabinet doors in your kitchen along with you're understandably very pleased with them. Having transformed your food preparation area into a space you now look forward to spending time in, you might think you couldn't really ask for more.
It's the small details that make the biggest differences though. Yes, your new cabinet doors really are works of art, but how can you emphasize them? They've given you the kitchen you've always wanted, so, without breaking the bank, how can you give them the surroundings they truly deserve too?
Fortunately, there are a number of inexpensive ways to complement your new cabinet doors. All that's needed is half an eye for design with a little time. If you've already been wondering what small upgrades can be made to your improve your kitchen further, you're most likely already halfway there.
The easiest way to bring some life and vitality to complement your new cabinet doors is to add some pot plants to your kitchen. Nothing brings the feeling of health and calm to a kitchen like living plants, and choosing the right types will mean maximum effect for the least maintenance and care. Using ornate pots that add to the aesthetics of your kitchen brings an extra splash of class, but the plants don't have to be all style over substance.
An oft-neglected part of many kitchens when it comes to decorative installations, bare walls are there to be taken advantage of. In short, the doors of your new cabinets shouldn't be the only things well-hung in the kitchen.Any paintings or family holiday photographs that didn't quite make the grade elsewhere in the house can be used to bring some happy memories to the kitchen.
One of the fiercest debates brought about by recent technological developments is the one of real books vs. electronic readers. Although the convenience of the latter cannot be denied when traveling, the non-electronic nature of the former cannot be beaten when trying to follow a recipe. Depending on the dimensions of the kitchen and space available, a suitably sized bookshelf can be given pride of place and reinforce the feeling of homeliness already brought by the bespoke cabinet doors. As with the plants and the pan rack, a small cookbook library in the kitchen is not merely ornamental. They can help to regularly bring new recipes to the family dinner plate, and nothing else could ever really complement your new bespoke cabinet doors quite like that.
