1. Backsplash – Adding backsplash underneath your kitchen cabinets is the obvious go-to if you want to make an impeccable difference and give it a completely new feel. If your kitchen has dark accents, such as the plates and décor, add lighter tiles to the walls. It will keep your kitchen bright and crisp day or night.

2. Black French Style Door – This door will become the statement piece of your kitchen! I can promise that. Exchange your old, plain pantry door for something more sleek and chic, such as a black French door with fogged glass. It will have a classic affect on your kitchen ambiance.

This is by far the best way to turn IKEA furniture into a true find. Cover the back of a bookshelf with charming wallpaper. Use bright or lighter wallpaper in a white bookcase and neutrals or dark accented wallpaper in black bookcases.

Hang it up! Put it on display! Pick some patterns that you really take to and would look great in a certain room in your home. Turn the new trend into a different style of artwork! It is quite the trend to be able to hang in a frame on the wall as artwork. Take full advantage of not having to go searching for art. Instead, just choose a few patterns that work well together and see what you come up with.
