Lake Tahoe home decorating tips: Be creative in the kitchen


Our kitchens have long been the center of our homes. Many of us have happy memories of the wonderful aromas we remember when our mothers were baking.

And, since so much of our time is spent in our kitchens, it’s natural that when considering remodeling or redecorating this space, you would want your décor to be comforting and satisfying — just like a great meal. It’s also very important to be sure that your new redecorated kitchen reflects your likes and your personality.

Above all else, I suggest you consider making your decorating scheme reflect your personality. Are you a gourmet cook? Then, why not considering incorporating some unique utensils and gadgets in your new décor — wooden spoons, spice graters, whisks, copper molds, etc., all of which are great kitchen accessories.

And, because many of these accessories can be hung on the walls, your new kitchen makeover will actually provide you with a two fold purpose — redecorating your space, and making these vital items more accessible as you cook.

Picking a great color plan is also important. Often, color choices are dictated by the “givens” in your room — flooring, appliances, cabinets, countertops — so let your good judgment prevail.

“It’s very important to be sure that your new redecorated kitchen reflects your likes and your personality.”

If you really want a drastic change and your color choices don’t blend with your “givens,” consider changing what you can now, and replace other items over time. What’s most important is that your colors be of the same intensity and tone.

And don’t forget those little special accents that give any room a total decorative look. You’ll need to consider repeating your fabric selection in other areas of your kitchen for a truly coordinated look.

How about adding some upholstered seat cushions, pillows on chairs, lining on the insides of cabinets, shelves and hutches? Tablecloths, place mats, table runners and coordinating napkins are also a must.

So have fun with your kitchen. Just remember, be sure to let your cooking personality and color preferences shine through.

I was so tired of looking on my own searching blindly and scared, this was our first home and after our first couple of meetings with Diane Evans, I felt a huge relief that she was my agent and team-mate. Diane was meeting us sometimes two times a week and worked with our very busy schedule. She made us her priority and was very patient in my learning experience. We are both so happy in our new home and that we met Diane Evans. I would like to think at the end of it all we became friends.
