It’s the hardest-working room in the house, and the heart of the home. Meal prep, entertaining, homework, dining – it seems we live half our lives in the kitchen.Paulette_diningRM Naturally we want it to be amazing, but the kitchen of our dreams isn’t always in our budget. You don’t have to start from scratch to transform your space, though.Coventry_corner All it takes is a dash of creativity in some high-impact areas.

Here are six kitchen decorating ideas to help you bring more comfort, personality, storage and lighting to this hub of home activity:

1. Lighting

Kitchen lighting above all else needs to be functional, but that doesn’t mean it can’t look great, too. Supplement your overhead lighting with distinctive, task-specific fixtures – gleaming pendants over the island, a lantern or crystal chandelier above your breakfast table, soft under-cabinet lights, even a small lamp to illuminate a dark stretch of countertop. You’ll enhance your kitchen’s style and make the whole room shine a little brighter.Laurenza_overhead

2. Storage

A few thoughtful storage pieces can make your kitchen work a lot harder and look a lot better. Find clever ways to keep the items you use most within easy hand’s reach – place a colorful crock filled with utensils next to the stove, gather your essential spices and oils on a vintage tray, and display your prettiest platters and glassware on an elegant étagère. If your kitchen has a back door that serves as your home’s main entry point, install some hooks for holding handbags and umbrellas, and put out a bowl to collect keys, sunglasses, and phones. You’ll minimize clutter, maximize efficiency, and add a healthy dose of charm.

3. Hardware

One of the quickest, easiest ways to revamp the look of your kitchen is by replacing worn, outdated hardware. Chic new knobs and pulls can bring old cabinets back to life, and are available in all sizes, shapes, styles, and finishes. Try mixing-and-matching for additional interest – knobs on doors and pulls on drawers, or by using a completely different type on your island to set it apart. Then, swap out your old faucet for one in a coordinating finish, update your paper-towel holder and wine rack, and just like that your kitchen has all-new flavor.

That's not true

She solved kirstie alley's kitchen decorating problems by bringing her designer in.
I read someplace that she just solved a Hollywood actor's bachelor pad decorating problem by bringing her designer in.
She helps a lot of Hollywood companies by shilling their movies on her program.
She helps lots of other companies sell their products to us.
See she helps people.

We made hummus and kabobs. We're listening to qawwali music and Chaiyya Chaiyya. Now the kids are in the kitchen decorating paper plates for the morocas and snacking on flat bread. I am SO happy this is going well. Yeah!!!

Sex is not without its advantages  — Chicago Tribune
If there was ever a case ripe for personal scandal or rumor, it was the attractive Jesse Jackson Jr. and the Mrs. But, no: They will likely head to prison on account of their poor math skills and extremely bad taste in kitchen decorating.

These are my poster child examples of the stupidest things ever to have evolved in home/kitchen/decorating/design. Let's just start with this: STAINLESS STEEL. For many years we all lived with stainless steel kitchen sinks. Those aren't any good anymore.
