If you don’t have enough kitchen cabinets but plenty of wall space, a clean, contemporary way to free up your kitchen counters is to display and store items on cool floating shelves or ledges like the kitchen above.
Is cooking and entertaining in your small kitchen difficult? A studio-size kitchen is a challenge to work in, but a few small kitchen organization ideas and a couple of hours of your time can turn your teeny kitchen into a modern, minimalist dream for cooking and celebrating.
Here’s the catch: just because it isn’t a seemingly vital piece of your kitchen doesn’t mean it’s an easy swap. In fact, undoing the customization and permanence of a kitchen backsplash can feel overwhelming and daunting. Add a few mental images of chipping away at stubborn backsplash tiles and you may have one the messiest kitchens you can imagine.
Consider replacing plumbing fixtures as well, as low-flow kitchen faucets save a lot of water. Updating your kitchen shouldn’t only be for aesthetics; it should also help save you money and the Earth’s resources.
True all-brass fixtures are rare because they tend to be expensive, but for those willing to make the investment, it is a material that stands the test of time. They have a smooth and dense makeup that leaves them far less likely to leak or corrode than other materials. However, you may want to do some research before committing to a model. In the past, lead was used in the production of brass faucets and unfortunately leaked into the water supply over time. Though legislation has been passed to regulate the amount used, it is possible for lead to be present in these fixtures.
