Valentine’s Day is just days away, and whether you are going out to celebrate or spending a cozy evening at home, you can easily make your kitchen a more festive place. Adding a pop of red is a great way to dress up your kitchen for a seasonal change, but it can also bring color for the entire year.

There’s no doubt that red is a bold color, but when you add it tastefully, it might be just what your kitchen needs for some added personality.

Cherry-Red Kitchen Cabinets

If you’re feeling brave and want to make a permanent change, add red to your cabinets. You can go with a more traditional, subtle look by replacing your cabinets with cherry wood pieces. This color is rich and deep and adds a traditional and warm look to a kitchen. Or, you can remove all your cabinets, sand them down and give them a fresh coat of red paint for a fun, retro or exciting look.

Snazzy Table Settings

Break out your red dishes, tablecloth, placemats, napkins and other accessories for the big day. When grouped together, these items create a happy, festive look and make for an easy way to make a big statement. You can also create a red-based centerpiece with a vase, flowers, candles and other items that can be used all year.

Cheerful Window Treatments

If your curtains or blinds are looking a little dull lately, replace them with a treatment that has a pop of red. Go all out and use solid read for curtains or Roman shades or use a fabric that has just a hint of red. The window treatments in your kitchen can make a big statement and this trick can instantly make the space feel new.

Bold Appliances

Next time you need to replace the refrigerator, stove or microwave, go bold and go red. A red appliance can make a major statement and add a lot of character to your kitchen. These look best in a room with more neutral floors, walls and other features. Contact a plumber on Long Island if you plan to move kitchen fixtures to make room for new appliances.

Small Details with Big Personality

Try adding touches of red with small details to create an overall theme for your kitchen. Displaying red dish towels, dishes or artwork is an easy way to add color in subtle ways. With some tiles and grout you can create a custom backsplash with a red theme.

You can also set up a small appliance, like a toaster or mixer on your counter for a fun, bright look. Hanging pot organizers and open storage for kitchen gadgets are in right now, and both can help you bring red into the room when you use them to store red utensils.

Adding red to your kitchen may seem like a major step, but by adding color to the space, even in small ways, you are taking your kitchen up a notch and adding interest and personality.
