Open Floor Plan

Make your small kitchen feel larger by following an open floor plan. Allow the space to carefully flow into the living or dining room. Change the wall colors from room to room to visually separate the two spaces. RMS user pilonieta kept the kitchen walls neutral but added a pumpkin-orange hue to the living room walls to show a bold and clear room divide.

Clean Hues

Make a small kitchen feel open and airy by using a light color palette and plenty of natural light. RMS user heatherbullard coordinated white beadboard, a light travertine backsplash, glass-front cabinets and a soft yellow hue on the walls for an elegant cottage feel. 

Proper Lighting

Small kitchens are often filled with the wrong lighting, making the space feel dim and enclosed. Using pendant lights on the ceiling and fluorescent lighting below the cabinets will gracefully cast light off the countertops and backsplash, visually expanding the space and uplifting the overall tone and mood.

Extra Storage

RMS user Felt So Cute renovated her small 1920s-style kitchen with clean, white cabinetry and a white, subway-tiled backsplash. The lime green accents add a playful splash of color without making the space feel busy or over-the-top. Take advantage of extra wall space by adding additional cabinetry and drawers. This will keep kitchen essentials organized and stored, while clearing up the countertops.

Downsized Appliances

Light wood cabinetry and a large, open window prevent this small, apartment-style kitchen from feeling cramped. In an extra-tiny kitchen like this, downsizing is the best way to go. A pint-sized stove, range hood, microwave and kitchen table are in proportion to the space and take up less space than their large predecessors.

Clear Countertops

This Manhattan apartment presented a small floor plan with an even smaller kitchen. RMS user ruffingit renovated the entire space and updated the kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances and modern cabinetry for a clean look. A long, granite-top island separates the kitchen from the living room and provides extra seating and cooking space. When using an island as a room divider, be sure to keep the top clear and clutter free.

Sleek and Simple

The sleek, clean lines of this kitchen prevent the space from looking or feeling small and cluttered. Designer Ammie Kim kept busy decor to a minimum and allowed the glass-tile backsplash to be the colorful — yet soothing — focal point. When using the deep-toned cabinetry, keep the surrounding walls and countertops neutral for a more balanced look.

Saving Storage From Flea Market Find : Cheap Decor 2014 Ideas

One person’s junk is another person’s treasure at least when it comes to these flea market finds. See how they were transformed into pretty storage solutions without costing a fortune.

Recycle painted divider boxes into all purpose organizers that can corral just about any small object. Whether you’re organizing in drawers or out in the open, the colorful boxes can round up everything from soap to silverware.

An aged flea market find makes for an inviting home office in this sunny room. A salvaged desk offers a spacious surface area for work or display and also boasts a roomy drawer for a bit of concealed storage. An old jewelry box accentuates the desk’s well-worn charm and provides space for storing office supplies and other small items.

Nothing gets lost in the bustle of your kitchen with this metal bin turned spice rack. Formerly a chicken feed bin, the rack now keeps cooking necessities organized in plain sight on the countertop and well within reach.

This workman’s hutch, made years ago by an Iowa farmer, provides the perfect spot to store and display dishes and valuables. It was painted green for a splash of color, then sanded down to reveal a bit of the original wood below. Changing the contents frequently keeps the space feeling fresh and fascinating.

A vintage wooden jewelry box proves just as useful today as it did in its prime. With a couple simple touch-ups, such as restaining the wood and replacing the knobs, the once outdated box gets new life. With nine compartments, it offers plenty of space to organize all of your jewelry and accessories.

Put antique accessories to work as handy storage solutions in your bathroom. Here, an old ladder stands in as a space saving towel rack, and a large hutch provides display space for pretty soaps and accessories as well as plenty of storage for towels and bathroom necessities.

For a focal-point pot rack with an undeniable rustic flair, suspend a vintage wooden sled above a kitchen island. Hang S-hooks from the rails to support your collection of pots and pans. The pot rack not only looks great, it also frees up cabinet space for other kitchen necessities.

For unique office storage, keep an eye out for a bin that has both cubbies and shelves. Outfitted with glass candy jars, the set of cubbies is the perfect place to organize and store small office supplies. Meanwhile, shallow boxes and baking pans make the shelves great for storing folders and papers. Mount the bin on the wall over your desk for a functional and stylish work center.

Spruce up your entryway with a unique flea market find. This vintage hall tree got a facelift with just a few coats of vibrant turquoise paint. Located in the entry of a cozy beach house, the tree now provides the perfect spot for friends and family to hang their gear as they come in from the nearby beach.

Create a scene-stealing shelving system by stacking a series of antique benches and anchoring them to the wall. The weathered finish of these benches testifies to their colorful past lives and adds a rustic, eclectic character to the space, all while providing a place to corral books and display accessories.

Add casters to a simple wood box for easy-to-move storage for almost any purpose. Place the box beneath an entryway console and you have an accessible, but tucked-away, place for shoes.

Turn an old toolbox into a modern-day must-have. To create a charging station, drill holes in the back of the box, wide enough for the outlet plugs on your charging cords to fit through. Cut a board to fit inside the box, and drill holes for the cords to fit through. Feed the cords through both sets of holes, tucking the slack beneath the board. Plug in the cords and start charging.

Place pretty jars out on your kitchen counter, and fill them with baking essentials. If you come across a jar without a lid, consider it as a holder for tall utensils.

Repurpose a vintage cart as a side table for a living room or entryway. A cart like this can be used as a drink station when entertaining. When outfitted with baskets on the lower shelf, it can be used as a handy entryway organizer and hold seasonal gear, shoes, and more out-the-door essentials.

Turn a tired old buffet that’s seen its last dinner party into an entryway organizer filled with purpose.

Organize your jewelry in a vintage printer’s tray. Give the tray a fresh coat of paint, and line the back of the compartments with pretty papers. Screw brass hooks into each compartment to hang baubles. To make space for necklaces and bracelets, use a hammer to remove a few slats.

2013 Spring Living Room Decorating Ideas from BHG

Bright colors, easy projects, and lots of light give this living room a new look for spring.

By Veronica Toney 

A pink and green color palette and blooms throughout the living room create a space that celebrates spring.Colorful accents on the sofa, above the fireplace, and in the nook give this living room the cheery makeover it needs.
A bold area rug pops against the neutral love seats and ottoman. Carpet tiles in pink, green, red, and gray arranged on a diagonal add a geometric design and color to the space. Carpet tiles are a fun and budget savvy alternative to an area rug. You don’t have to buy new pieces to give your space a new look. Floral fabric with a light background wraps around the leather ottoman. The fabric adds a dose of color to the room and transforms the ottoman from formal to casual. The edges of the fabric are hemmed with fusible web, and the ends are pinned to the ottoman’s underside.
Colorful throw pillows add spring flair to the sofas. Pair a patterned pillow with solid-color pillows in shades pulled from the patterned fabric. Tie the room together by using the same fabric on the ottoman and a throw pillow. For the pillow, sew a simple square and stuff with batting. Use fabric scraps to embellish store-bought pillows. Here, a fabric sash dresses up the pink pillow. Turn an unused corner into a cozy spot for reading or chatting.
A bistro table and two lightweight chairs create an inviting scene. Flowers are used throughout the corner. Floral seat cushions, large floral wall art, and even real flowers on the table all signal that spring has sprung. Carpet tiles create a small area rug and tie this area to the main living room.
