Your kitchen’s lighting should not be anything that goes. It must be well thought of because your choice can influence the overall look of the kitchen.
The right kind of lighting can help when taking images for the gram or for social media.
It can also change the entire look of your kitchen, by giving it either a cheap or expensive look.

Use Warm/ Lighter Colours:

Update /Renovate Your Kitchen

There is no fixed period when you should renovate your kitchen? It does not need to be every year.

If you are using a wooden cabinet, and you notice that termites have started eating the wood….this calls for a renovation.

If your kitchen paints are spotter with cooking oil marks, and it looks very unattractive. *smiles* Your kitchen crys for a repaint.

You can also decide to go for a new look by completely changing your drawers, plate racks, bowls, tables, furniture, everything.

Something must not be spoilt or damaged in the kitchen before you change it.

Declutter Your Counter

You need to keep your table counter free from small appliances.

You can bring them out from storage when you need to use it.

Or, only keep one appliance you use daily on the counter.
