Having a new look in the kitchen is often craved by many. But, kitchen design can be a little dull. There are some inventive and unusual ways that you can transform your kitchen from a simple space to cook to an interior design dream. When it comes to matters of interior design, you need to ensure that you are on the right lines. After all, your kitchen should be a cool, funky space to live within.

It’s time to ditch the pastels and vintage looking worktops. Here are unusual kitchen ideas that you can adopt in any home.

Arabian Nights Theme

Many people are keen to have an Arabian night’s theme in their bedrooms. But, why confine this stunning theme to the bedroom? The kitchen can be transformed into an Arabian wonderland. Hang heavy drapes. Opt for onion-domed cooker tops. Add wooden doors to your worktops that have an Arabic pattern within them. The key to making this look work is to opt for dark wood hues in your kitchen. It’s time to ditch the white cupboard doors of yesteryear. You don’t have to stick to pastels with this look. Opt for yellows, oranges and reds. Bring this theme alive for a quirky yet stunning look in your kitchen.

Do the Monochrome with a Lemon Zest

High gloss kitchens have always had a big impact. But, what about adding a zest of lemon with a bright counter top? Black and white is oh-so-chic. But, it can feel a little cold. Add a pop of colour to the countertops or cabinets. Of course, you don’t have to stick with lemon or orange. Reds, turquoises and greens can also look visually stunning. The key is to add one key colour and stick to it.

Get Rid of Radiators

Radiators are ugly. There, we’ve said it. When it comes to creating an inviting space, you need to make sure that you are getting rid of the ugly features of your home. Some people opt for radiator covers, but this blocks in the heat. What’s more, they can make your home feel cold. Why not opt for a ductless heat pump? This ensures that you can ditch the old style radiators, yet feel the benefits of warm glow in your kitchen. Interior design is all about pushing boundaries. But you don’t have to feel the cold. What’s more, you will save a small fortune on your energy bills.

Lighting, Lighting Everywhere

Considering your lighting options means going beyond a central light fixture. Spot lights can have a positive impact on your kitchen too. But, what about if you got rid of ceiling lights and added accented lights around the kitchen? Add lights to countertops, display cabinets and accentuate wall features from the bottom up? You don’t have to go for the tried and tested ceiling light. Add up lights to the floor. Add recessed lighting to the walls. This is a quirky way to transform the look of your kitchen while still retaining your lighting needs. It’s utterly perfect in every way.
