Nothing Beats a Fresh Coat of Paint.

It’s true! A simple coat of paint freshens up a space by covering up dust and other signs of wear an old paint colour carries. Fresh paint energizes the space with a bright outlook, a new view and the satisfaction of a job well done. 

More dramatic, energized shades have returned for 2023 after a subdued couple of years. Warmer Neutrals, ravishing red, greens of all kinds and bold accent shades are in, and are deemed timeless.  Here are a few examples to give you an idea of what’s possible!

Simple Ideas, Big Impact.

Utilize Upper Wall Space

You can use the upper part of a kitchen wall to save space (and funds) that you can use for other improvements. Higher shelves, pot racks and hanging mugs can make your kitchen look larger. The ceiling is the limit, really!

Mirrors and tiles can do wonders to help open up a small space and project more natural light. When there is minimal light in a kitchen, a revamped backsplash could have what it takes to transform the space.

Add Depth with a Patterned Floor. 

Patterns are powerful, and can look amazing. A patterned, tiled floor can give the illusion of a larger space. 

The Hidden Benefit of a Tiny Sink.

A large, deep sink is attractive – especially if you need to hide some dishes! However, a small sink can be well worth it for the versatility.  You can purchase a sink cover and the sink can double as an area for food prep. This is a great way to utilize every inch in a smaller space efficiently, while keeping things looking sleeker than ever.
