Before and after kitchen makeover with patterned walls

There are lots of different ways in which you can make your kitchen look special. Even the smallest of details can completely change the décor. When you feel like you’re tired of the way your kitchen looks like and when you want something new and exciting, you should try giving it a makeover. It’s what this kitchen went through and now it looks better than ever.

There weren’t many major changes in the plan, just enough to change the atmosphere. The walls definitely needed some spark. As opposed to simply changing the color, the owners of this place decided to go with something a little more special. They decided to add pattern to the walls to make them stand out more. So the whole process went like this: first a swirly pattern was photocopied onto a transparency and then a projector was used to blast the image onto the wall. Then it was simple. With a pencil, the pattern was traced onto the wall.

The difference of color between the background and the swirly pattern is almost unnoticeable but strong enough to stand out. Other important changes in décor that should be mentioned include changing the lighting to recessed. It’s not a major change but it makes a big difference in the overall results. Even though everything else remained the same, including the appliances and cabinets, the atmosphere now is very fresh and the décor is dynamic and stylish.{found on sawdustandembryos}.
