The kitchen is the center of most homes, it is one of those areas where people tend to commune, and because of that a homeowner will want to make it as warm and friendly as possible. Decoration for a kitchen is as important as it is for the rest of the home. What many homeowners do not know is that they can redesign their kitchens without the help of an interior designer, and on a budget. All they need is a little guidance and motivation, which is provided by Do It Yourself Kitchens: Stunning Spaces on a Shoestring Budget by Better Homes & Gardens.
One of the first tips in the book is regarding using mosaic tiles for a backsplash instead of boring white. Not only can this add a unique touch to a kitchen, it can be easily done (by following the book’s instructions) and it can result in a functional element of the kitchen’s decor. Furthermore, tiles are affordable and available in a wide range of designs, so that a homeowner can add their own distinctive flair without going over their budget.
Is tiling all there is to kitchen design? No, and the book provides many more ideas including ones for storage spaces, cabinetry and plumbing fixtures. Readers get help in coordinating their appliance colors and the colors of their walls along with many other areas that impact how this room looks and feels. All of these designs are meant for those with budget restrictions.
Do It Yourself Kitchens: Stunning Spaces on a Shoestring Budget provides lots of color photographs to provide ideas to do-it-yourselfers along with detailed step by step instructions with more photographs that detail each step of the various design suggestions. There are also before-and-after photo sets that show exactly what kinds of transformations are possible.
