Home kitchens are pretty much the only place anything good has been happening this year, so here’s how to tart yours up a bit.
Working from home over the past few months has left most of us reimagining our homes and how we use our spaces. After exploring different ways to maximize your condo in previous weeks, we decided to zoom in one two of the most important spots in your house: the kitchen and dining room. These are spaces that often get overlooked in favor of home offices and leisure spaces, but kitchens need a bit of TLC, too — time to get to work and channel your inner Marie Kondo. Here’s four tips and tricks to make the kitchen in your Bangkok condo all the more homey and welcoming.
Add more wooden hues
It sounds simple, but adding some natural elements like wood to your kitchen is a great way to give it some life. Plus, the warm brown tones oozes a minimalist and earthy vibe, making your kitchen feel more warm and inviting. You can start out with wooden tables like the Tratto (B63,430). Made from high-grade oak, it’s natural light brown tones match perfectly with the My Mia (B19,000) wooden chair. Made from ash wood, it will complete that earthy vibe you are going for.
Go classy on your utensil game
Simplicity is the key with dining utensils. A clean, understated look is the name of the game here. A few well-placed, minimalistic utensils will add more personality to your dining table without coming off as brash. They say less is more, so opt for the Brighton set (B7,170), a stainless-steel cutlery set that works for pretty much any occasion. Pair it with white-and-blue-themed Maine porcelain set (B570), and you’re halfway into your dining table revamp.
A clean-looking plate mat makes all the difference
Honestly, a dining table without a plate mat placed under your shiny, brand-new plates and utensils would look out of place. This is where the dark grey Gamma (B290) placemats come in to play as the invaluable supporting act. Your plates stay safe, and your expensive tables don't get all scratched up.
Time to go fancy with the decorations
We said less is more, didn’t we? Well, you can bend the rules a little bit and go all out with your dining room decorations. You don’t have to turn your table into a Jackson Pollock or anything (just the thought of that is gross), but a little pizzazz here and there can make your dining space feel more alive. The Drop candle holder (B4,100) can add a romantic touch to your dinner date at home, while indoor plant lovers can fork out B3,800 for the Iwi, a nicely-sized ceramic vase to complete a natural look to your dining space.
