2- Dark Cabinetry
When it comes to decorating your kitchen, the first thing that comes in your mind is the color of your kitchen cabinet. Kitchen cabinets and other exterior hardware occupy almost 80% of kitchen space, so that has to be perfect looking. Always try to keep the color of your kitchen cabinets dark as this is going to be the physical part of your kitchen and you cannot change your kitchen cabinets twice a month or year just because the color is not good or they just got dirty. After selecting the color to choose the countertop to pair it with the dark cabinet to look beautiful.
When you have a dark color of kitchen cabinets, the contrast color for countertop should be a light color close to white with beautiful designs. The pairing of colors matters a lot as the 1st color should be contrasted with the counter color such as it should look nice. Kitchen cabinets never go empty as this is the only space in your kitchen to keep the things that you don’t use regularly. But remember to use a strong cabinet pulls to help in opening and closing it.
3- Paint Inside Cupboards
If you feel your cupboards are out of shape and looks dirty then this is the time to replace their look.

A quick coat of paint can really do a job for you and will change it looks completely. And it is less costly than buying for a new one. But before painting, I will suggest you have a look at your cupboards that if they are damaged badly or have been used for a long time then even repainting can’t do the job really well.
Alternatively, if your cupboards have made of god solid material then this method will work for sure and the fresh look of your cabinets will be back in no time. So let’s dive into the brief guide that how you can paint your cabinets on your own.
Firstly, pull out everything from the cupboards and remove any type of hardware attached to it. Then you may need to wash it by using a sponge or by a piece of cloth so that the dust on the cabinet can be removed completely. And then paint them and you got a fresh new look for your cabinet.

- Use magnet for Knives and other small things that are very hard to hang in hooks or pegboards. Magnet makes it easy to hang knives and other small items as you don’t need to hang one by one.
5- kitchen drawers
It does not matter how beautiful your kitchen looks. Whether the color of walls and cabinets are attractive and you have the most expensive electronic appliances. If your kitchen does not have reliable and functional drawers then its all in vain because the comfort is the first priority over designing. So make sure that you have working kitchen drawers and you have drawer pulls installed properly. Drawers are the items that you open and close many times a day so it is very important that you have installed drawer pulls properly.
The size of drawers shoulda always be according to standards, generally, the size comes with 1 1/2 inches small in depth. For example, if the opening is 4 by 16 inches, then the size of the drawer should go as 3 by 14 1/2 inches on the outside. This allows enough space for any size of the drawer to slide easily. Drawers color should match with the color of kitchen cabinets especially the color of the front side of the drawer. Some of the drawers should contain a lock so that you can lock sensitive things in the lock for child safety.
