Bathroom makeovers don’t have to be expensive. You can transform your bathroom in an hour or two with the right tools and some imagination. This week, I’ll show you how to create a simple, inexpensive bathroom makeover that will transform your bathroom’s old, dated look into a sleek and modern room in one day. Here are some simple bathroom design trends and steps to revamping a bathroom.

Steps to Revamping a Bathroom

1. When it comes to bathroom decorating, the key is to find a way to make it unique and reflect your style. If that’s not possible, go for color. It’s a simple way to add personality to a room, and you don’t need to break the bank to do it — especially if you’re a fan of bold colors. Consider adding some wallpaper, or painting a wall.

2. To create a welcoming and enjoyable space, the first step is to choose what goes on the wall and in the cabinets. Choose art to fill the space, decorate the bathroom, and organize the space by color and style. Personalize the space with artwork and photos—the bathroom should feel like home, so don’t be afraid to add personal touches.

3. Cabinets are a great way to give your bathroom a modern update. They are also a great way to get a lot of storage space.

Adding Art, Patterns, and Graphic Design to Your Kitchen

When it comes to decorating a kitchen, the possibilities are endless. You can dress up your walls with prints and art, use patterns to make your kitchen pop, or add a splash of color with a colorful accent wall. But, what if you don’t want to go to all the trouble of creating a whole new look for your kitchen? What if you already have a lovely kitchen that you want to add a little something to? You can work with the colors and textures of your existing kitchen and add a decorative flourish to the space. While redoing the kitchen cabinets is always an option, adding art, patterns, and graphics design can help, and can also easily change according to kitchen design trends.

Neutral Plus Color

Neutral bright colors are now making a comeback in the kitchen. While they used to be associated with the pre-1960s style, it is clear now that neutral colors are re-emerging with a more recent twist. Neutral colors are still used in kitchens today; they are just coming back in a more modern and fresh way. The neutral, minimalistic kitchen design trends involve adding a pop of color, patterns, textures, and graphic elements. It’s a modern eclectic style trend. It also involves the strategic use of a bold wallpaper, backsplash, or piece of wall art that will add a visually stunning element that will make a neutral kitchen feel more dynamic and vibrant.

Small Changes

A simple way to add a bit of personality to your kitchen is by adding a hint of color. A small change can have a major impact on a kitchen and make it feel like a new kitchen, but all you did was make a slight tweak. Always make sure that the colors, textures, patterns, and artwork is still complementary to the rest of your kitchen design.

Two-Toned Kitchen Cabinet Style Trend

When planning your new kitchen, you can expect to hear many arguments about what to choose for the handles, what type of wood to go with, and what kind of finishes to put on. But for a lot of people, the kitchen cabinets might be the most important decision in the room, the one that can make or break the entire room.

A kitchen is a place where you spend most of your time, and also a place where you should feel comfortable, right? Well, before you start making major decisions based on color, you should know that style is a very personal decision, so you might want to start by adding an element of style to your kitchen. The two-toned trend is a huge hit right now, with a darker shade of color at the bottom of kitchen cabinets, with a lighter shade on top. This trend is not reserved just for kitchen cabinets, it can be used in the bathroom as well, or wherever it works.

Picking the Right Color Palette

Before deciding to go with the two-toned trends, make sure that you pick two colors that are within the same color palette. The look should be like a natural progression, such as the ombre effect, from top to bottom. This style can open up the kitchen, and make it feel lighter and brighter due to the lighter top kitchen cabinets.

Contrasting colors is another unique option for kitchen cabinets.

Considerations Besides Color

Use two tones of wood that compliment each other. They should have the same base hue (golden, cherry, blonde, chocolate, etc.). Black and white cabinets are a bold contrast, but you can soften the effect with marble and stone countertops that have both colors. It’s best to keep the dark color at the bottom, and light at the top. White top cabinets are popular, and with them, you can add a light blue or green base cabinet to incorporate a bit of color.

Finding the Right Neutral Colors for Your Kitchen

In today’s kitchen, we have a lot of options for color. From neutrals to bold hues, there’s a color to suit everyone’s tastes and styles. But sometimes it can be difficult to pick one color over another. With neutral colors, there is no right or wrong choice. Instead, it’s about finding the right balance or harmony. Here are some suggestions for the right colors to consider for your kitchen, including kitchen cabinets, along with some ideas for how to incorporate them into your organization and design.

Neutral Color Tones Are Always Safe

The kitchen is often one of the most highly visual areas of the home. That’s why neutral colors can be so helpful in making a space feel larger and more open. Choosing neutral colors means you have fewer limits on what you can use for your space. There is a reason why neutral color tones are popular for the walls and kitchen cabinets—they are simple and sophisticated. Neutral colors can accentuate other pops of color you choose, such as for the decor. The base tone of the neutral color you choose will make the kitchen feel warmer or cooler.

Neutral tones are always the safest option when it comes to kitchens.

Finding the Right Neutral

For finding the perfect neutral for your kitchen, consider what other colors are present in your kitchen or home. Decide whether you want to paint your kitchen cabinets for a more solid neutral color, or stain kitchen cabinets to allow for some natural wood grain to shine through (which adds extra texture and rustic vibe, whereas paint is more modern and sleek). Don’t forget about your countertops when choosing a neutral for your kitchen cabinets. It’s important to match tones in countertops, especially if you are going for a natural stone or quartz countertop.
