5 Things to Avoid in Decorating Kitchen

  1. Forgot to pay attention to the ventilation. If our kitchen doesn’t have ventilation, it will disturb us in our cooking activity and the food smell will spread in the house. If we have ventilation, the smell can come out without spreading to other rooms.
  2. Doesn’t have enough lighting. A kitchen in our house can’t be dark because we will feel tricky during cooking. Make sure our kitchen has enough lighting for making us comfortable during cooking.
  3. Doesn’t make sure shelf size. If we only buy a shelf without making sure of the size, we can get a problem when installing kitchen accessories. Our kitchen accessories can’t fit enough when put on the shelf. It makes our kitchen look ugly and doesn’t have a concept.
  4. Using open shelf excessively. For a small kitchen, an open shelf can’t be added too much because it makes our kitchen look messy.
  5. Using dark furniture. A kitchen needs bright furniture for making our kitchen feel brighter but if we more like dark colors we can combine some bright and dark color furniture.
