Wallpaper is usually a delicate item, unable to face the rigors of a kitchen’s environment, especially around the sink area where splashes of water can easily ruin it. But what about vinyl wallpaper? You bet! Vinyl wallpapers are waterproof as well as very resistant to humidity, and can even stand up to scrubbing.
Want your backsplash to send a message? How about a stenciled design? That should do the trick. First apply spackle on the wall and let it dry overnight. Then paint the wall any color you want (in this case a dark chocolate tone). Then sponge on bronze metallic paint. Then comes the tricky part: the stenciling. You need to do some research and pick a technique. Also, be patient.
Adding a splash of color to your décor is always a welcomed way to make the environment brighter, but in a kitchen too much color could overwhelm the room. So, what might be a good DIY possibility? That’s right, a backsplash! This project presents a very cool idea for protecting your walls from unwanted stains while animating the light in the environment. The choice made by this home owner was for a kitchen backsplash made of glass. Visit a local glass shop to locate a single 36 inch square sheet of polished or back painted glass for around $200, and have an easy DIY project for your kitchen.
Make a small, mobile kitchen island using an Expedit shelving unit, Lagan countertop and Branas baskets, all from Ikea. First assemble the bookshelf, attach castors to the bottom panel, cut the countertop to the desired dimensions, secure it with brackets into an L‐shape and then cut an opening above one of the baskets for the garbage bin.
Another efficient design idea for kitchen bars is to build a pass through the bar with an opening from the kitchen to the dining area. Opening up the dividing wall will spice up the décor and make things convenient. The pass can be easily used to set a buffet table when you have guests at your place. Sliding doors may also be added to the pass in order to prevent your kitchen being on display all the time.
