You can get your kitchen tiles printed in any motif. If that seems to be expensive, you can use ceramic paints to create designs on your tiles. You can also use a variety of themed kitchen backsplashes available in the market. You can use a few open shelves and display interesting bowls and pots on the shelves. You can add some relevant artwork on the wall and keep it to one or two frames alone.
Ornate your kitchen with colours and accessories
You will find many quirky holders, storage boxes in metal and ceramics. You can add some happy indoor flowering plants in yellow. You can place interesting looking dishes such as colourful storage boxes, creative set of mugs, pots, glasses, etc.
You can add wooden stools in pop colours.
For a single colour used throughout the kitchen, you can add textured and printed window covers.
You can as well use wall paper for your entire kitchen, if you want something kitschy or funky. Add woven baskets in open shelves to create a very urban look.
Earthy decoration in the material of ceramics, usually looks better than any metal décor. Avoid metal décor as much as possible and keep it only up to electronic items.
