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 Different Ways to Decorate Your Bed

We all love changing things up in our homes as the trending colors change, but sometimes, we can run out of different ways to use these colors and make them look different. We are here to provide you with unique ways to redecorate your bed, which will give the whole bedroom a completely new look! Our tips and tricks are sure to help!



     Color blocking is always in style going along with the trends no matter what colors are favorites at the time. If it’s necessary, you can even color block with neutral colors! The way to make this work is simply mismatching sheets and the accessories around the room. Contrast strong colored pillowcases with a bold fitted sheet and comforter, but match the pillowcases to the top sheet to add the color back in. If you want to add more colors or more of the same color, add it in with throw pillows or possibly a duvet. You want to show off all the colors in every area to show that it all goes together, so try folding and organizing the bed in a certain way that shows off all of the separate colors.



     Put something at the end of your bed! Many people are now creating their own headboards and either raising their bed on a bottom frame or just leaving it on the floor. When you do this, it almost looks like there’s something missing at the end of the bed, because there is! Add a bench or a chest. Try out a few things and see how creative you can get! Maybe even add a few side tables all put together or some large floor pillows. Have fun and make it look like how you want it to look. This adds some flare and makes it more dynamic visually.



     This is going to be the simplest change to your room you could ever make. Fold your bed differently. This is actually a huge indicator of the mood of the bedroom you are trying to create. Try new things you can do with the bedding you already have, and work around the bed frame constraints. This will take some creativity or trial and error period, but it can be accomplished and change the whole look of the already designed room.



     The last creative project to change up your bedroom is to add DIY details on your existing bedding. Take the throw blanket and sew a few personal pieces on, or add fun trim to the end of your comforter. It adds a personal touch and your own personal style that makes your bedding stand out. Decorate your pillows with any DIY method. This is the process you can simply just have fun with and is easy on the wallet. Our tips and tricks will surely lead you to a new, updated bedroom with the exact touch you would like!!
