A kitchen is the traditional feng shui seat of prosperity in a home, no matter where in the house it is located. After all, if you have the good fortune to have bounties of food and health, you have the key ingredients for cooking up a brilliant life. If your kitchen is lackluster, disorganized or you tend to avoid it, there are some easy solutions you can actually make (minus major handyman skills) to get things glowing in the kitchen.
Above, a curtain to hide the exposed underbelly of a sink and trash area adds wow-factor to your kitchen in a few easy steps. Just grab some fabric you love, measure and have a tailor (or sit and stitch) a flap for a tension rod, and then load the fabric onto the rod and pop it in place. This is easy breezy kitchen customization at its functional finest.
Add some art in place of (or on top of) your less-than-glamorous cabinets to beautify and mix in surprising personality.
One wall of chalkboard paint is the gift that keeps on giving in an interactive kitchen! It can be the display wall for your grocery list, favorite recipe, quotes you love or even a calendar.
Add a mossy layer followed by soil to the tiers of an inexpensive hanging storage basket and you will have the perfect flourishing garden. By the way, just hanging a basket like this securely and filling it with fruit will make a big difference!
Think like Julia Child when it comes to organization. Above is her very own pegboard kitchen organizer. If you want to make your own, Apartment Therapy has a DIY that may take a bit of focus, but it will transform your space most absolutely!
Whatever you do, get in your kitchen and make stuff, even if you are olny making tea. Every time you light the fire of a stove and start cooking things up, the same happens in your life. Keep it moving! xoxo Dana
