Have you always remembered sweet times spent at your grandparents farm? If so, maybe you have decided to carry those memories right into your kitchen. Whether it's a brand new kitchen or whether you are doing a remodel job, maybe you are looking for ideas. From selecting the interior painting to choosing the decor, here are some ideas that might help you to design a charming area that you will enjoy with family and friends.
The Interior Painting - First you might want to decide if you want a bold color of paint or a more subdued one. For instance, if you want real pizzaz in your farm-themed kitchen, think of using the same color of red that was traditionally used on barns in the olden days. If you want a more subdued look that will complement the rest of your kitchen decor, think of going with very pale butter-yellow or with white paint.
Whether you select a bold color of paint or a softer one, think of stenciling around the middle of the room and around the top of the ceiling. Choose stencils of things like barns, cows, and flowers that will add to the farm feeling you want.
Since the paint is for your kitchen, remember that the walls might have things like sticky fingers from little ones who help you make cookies. With that in mind, select an interior paint that you can easily clean with a damp rag.
The Kitchen Decor - Think of starting your decorating with your choice of furniture. For instance, an antique kitchen table and ladder back chairs would be really nice. If you went with white paint for the walls, think of painting the wooden furniture red. Look for a rustic hutch where you can display things like decorative barn yard animals, red canisters, old cook books and old crockery.
If you have enough space, think of buying desks that you'd find in old-fashioned school houses. Look for things like antique cookie cutters, butter molds and old advertisements you can frame for the walls. Rag dolls set in little wooden rocking chairs and an antique high chair with a child's pewter cup and spoon would be little touches that would add nostalgia to the room.
If you're really lucky, you'll find hand-braided rugs. Use them on the floor and on one of the larger walls. And, don't forget to look for things like old bread boxes that will also add interest to the room. For more information, contact a painting company, such as Walls-N-All Painting.
