Like they say, the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Food is so much more than just sustenance, in fact, food brings people together, and not to mention the joy that good food could bring. So having a kitchen where you could also enjoy cooking would be quite a bonus. Here, we'll give you tips on how you could improve your kitchen space. 

1. Displaying your collections

Adding in some family heirloom as decoration or trinkets you've acquired from your travels adds so much character to a room. Open shelving is also a practical way to store spices and other ingredients, making it easier to find and placing a nice mat with a unique print provides more character to you kitchen.

2. Diner style

The black and white checkered floor exudes a geometric flair, and adding a pop of colour like the use of red along the walls and furniture provides an eye-catching statement. The white brick wall also adds texture and style to the room.

3. Personal touch

Adding in a personal touch to you kitchen will make it feel more homey. You could also have a blackboard where you could write your shopping list or maybe as a marker to track the growth of the children each year. 

4. A dash of colour

Adding a pop of colour in the kitchen makes the space more lively and interesting. Too much colour, on the other hand, will make it look tacky. But with just the right amount, then you're all set!

5. Rack Ideas

Display those beautiful spice jars and mugs in a nice rack. Then underneath, you could install these hooks where you could easily hang ladles or pots and pans. 

6. Bar along the countertop

Adding a bar area along the countertop is a nice way to get people to hang out in the kitchen or even participate in food preparation. Here you'll see a wood plank along the counter to serve this purpose along with barstools which could be pulled out from underneath.

7. Rustic vibe

Bare cement walls, whitewashed beams, distressed wood are all deliberately used to make this kitchen look rustic. Having chairs of different colours also make a nice design statement.

8. Wide outdoor view

This sleek white kitchen may feel a bit stiff, but if you're pet peeve is cleanliness, then this might just work for you. Also, the highlight of this kitchen is actually the wide view of the outdoor. Most kitchens just have small windows, but having this whole wall as a sliding glass door is a great way to open up the space and it also makes it a nice picturesque relaxing experience for anyone who is preparing the food.

9. Unconventional Countertops

12. Sleek and sassy

14. Open shelves
