5 Simple Ways to Transform Your Kitchen

     Every kitchen needs an update every once in awhile. Yes, yours included! We have all the answers for your kitchen catastrophes, though! Here at A.Clore Interiors, we believe every room is important, but the kitchen plays a huge role when having guests and company over. It’s the room everyone hangs out in, where everyone converses and catches up. You want to make sure your kitchen is welcoming and up-to-date on all the latest trends while you’re talking about all the latest news!



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.



3. Embellished Gold Corner Brackets – This is a suggestion is a much more hip and younger update. Add those shiny, gold corner brackets to the edges of your kitchen drawers and cabinets. Your kitchen will make you travel back to your mid-twenties! These gold brackets help your kitchen give off that young, but mature, setting.



4. Lighter Colors – Like we have mentioned in all of our previous blog posts, lighter color palettes are always the way to go! It makes your kitchen automatically look clean and crisp. You can go crazy with a light color scheme, and you could never over-do it. The best way to brighten up your kitchen is by painting the cabinets. If you change your cabinets by a shade, it’s noticeable. Try it!

5. New Basics – Add in some new kitchen floor tiles or some new light fixtures. You can add or take away a theme from your kitchen by changing the basics. They are the foundation of your kitchen setting! Change it up a little and guests will notice for sure!

4 Ways to Get Your Design Creativity Flowing Each Day

We know it is so hard to stay inspired and be creative every morning and throughout the day. We’ve learned tips and tricks to staying on the ball and getting work done! Being creative is something that should be practiced every day, because it keeps your mind flowing and picks your brain. The best way to challenge yourself is to start early in the morning, so here are a few things you can do bright and early in the morning to start your creative day off right!

Take a Shower

Taking a shower in the morning instead of at night gives your mind a few minutes to review what you did the day before and go over everything you have to do that day. Think about what you wish you could change about the previous, and fix that issue that current day. We all know we think the most when we’re relaxed, so take a hot shower! Relax. Think.

Make a To-Do List



After considering all the things that need to get accomplished, make your to-do list for the day. Try to list in the order of most important to least important, and then, just go down the list crossing things off one by one. When you have your set to-do list, you will feel much more organized and in control of the day ahead.

Give Yourself Some Credit

Look around your apartment. Compliment your style and design taste. More than likely, your apartment is a direct reflection of your personality. If not, hang up some artwork you love. Put out some décor that is your own personal, unique style. This small admiration will bring about a smile, and we all know life is defined by those small waves of happiness.

Drink a Glass of Water



This one might seem a little funny, but this is a little trick we have picked up on. This one glass of water will wake you up quite a bit and leave you feeling refreshed and ready to go!
