As the heart of the home, your kitchen has to be a warm and welcoming place for everyone to spend their time. While all homeowners would like to spiff up their kitchen, the reality is that this home improvement project can be burdensome on the budget. However, you do not need a major kitchen overhaul to infuse warmth and some freshness within this space. With a few strategic applications of brass, you can transform a utilitarian kitchen into one in which you, your family and others will want to linger.
Your kitchen shelves are indispensable for organizing everything from utensils to food items. However, they can also be converted into a visual highlight: Use hard-grain wood for your shelves, supported by brass tubes for some old world charm, without sacrificing practicality.
Give your kitchen a vintage splash by replacing your faucets and other water pipes with brass. Not only do you give this space a retro feel with just a few changes, but piping a la brass tube is very cost-effective as materials go.
Light It Up
Another way to dress up your kitchen without spending much is to purchase some brass lighting fixtures. Install brass sconces on your wall, or go all out with a brass chandelier. These touches imbue your entire kitchen with a golden glow that requires comparatively little investment on your part.
Jazzing up the kitchen to turn it into a work of art doesn’t have to break your bank. With just a few brass touches, you are on your way to creating a living space in which you, your loved ones, and your guests will enjoy spending many hours while bonding and making memories.
