9 Ways To Keeping Your Kitchen In Style

People spend a lot of time in the kitchen. When you wake up in the morning, the first thing to do is either to make a coffee or prepare breakfast. Some matriarchs also prepare meals for their kids to school. We spend time in the kitchen preparing dinners every day and during special occasions such as Christmas or Family Reunions. Sometimes, we even host guests in the kitchen and dining area.

It is important to keep our kitchen in style. It is prone to wear and tear because of the smoke, food stains, and moisture that build up with time. Earl’s Interior Painting Calgary is here to share a few tricks and tips that will help you keep your kitchen in trend with most homes in Calgary.

Kitchen Style Guide

  1. Simplicity

Often neglected, simplicity is still the best way to keep your kitchen stylish. It is good not to crowd your kitchen with decorations accessories. It is simpler to add a few rustic details instead of elaborate China wares.

  1. Art of the Artworks

Adding artworks as your kitchen wall decors is also another way of adding details to your kitchen. Pieces of artwork can elevate your kitchen from ordinary to sophisticated. Artwork is a modern way of adding elegance to any kitchen theme you plan to have.

  1. Kitchen Character

This is one of the first decisions you need to make before you can start decorating your entire kitchen. You need to decide the character you want for your kitchen. This gives you the freedom to mix and match materials for your kitchen interior. This creates details that fit your personality.

  1. Kitchen Countertops

This is one of the most important details that you can put in your kitchen. Instagram, lifestyle magazines, and Pinterest offer different countertop vignettes that can spice up your kitchen interior. You can add rustic wood or earthenware to decorate.

  1. The Backsplash Bandwagon

The backsplash is a cheap and sophisticated way to elevate your kitchen’s modernity. Backsplashes are aesthetically pleasing and protect your wall painting from water splash and food stains. They add details to your kitchen and complement your kitchen cabinets and countertop. They are easy to install and practical to incorporate.

  1. Lighting as Key Kitchen Detail

Lighting is an inexpensive means to change the kitchen mood and ambiance. You can install lighting under kitchen cabinets for details and some hanging pendants.

  1. Foods and Accessories as Decorations

You can use food and accessories to ornate your kitchen cabinets and countertops. You can use cookbooks, spatulas, and knives as countertop displays. You can add a spice rack and condiment containers in your kitchen countertop. You can arrange your cookbooks on floating shelves to add details to your kitchen.

  1. Use Dark Paints

Kitchen colors should reflect the color palette of the entire house. Dark color paints should add significant improvement to your kitchen interior. It is always advisable to introduce a dark finish to your kitchen. Dark colors can easily offset bright spaces magnificently

  1. Style Your Kitchen Like A Pro.

If you want to elevate your kitchen, you should style it how chefs do it with their kitchen. A great kitchen encourages sociability and functionality. You need to ensure that there is enough space so people can move around while getting enough space for kitchen functions.

These few tricks can help you elevate your kitchen and do the magic. It is time to upgrade your kitchen modernity and have a warm and inviting ambiance.

We hired Earl and his crew to paint the baseboards & walls of our basement. He is very good at answering emails and texts. Also is punctual when meeting for quotes and doing the work. I specifically wanted our baseboards lacquered and NOT brush or roller painted. It cost more, but the results speak for themselves. The basement was left clean and the furniture well covered. Great work from this company. Would recommend

Recently Earl painted the exterior of our house. The structure was very challenging and needed an enormous amount of prep work. Earl and his crew showed up every day on time and went full tilt for 4 days to get all the prep and painting done. The paint was all brushed and rolled.They were very professional and it was obvious that they take pride in their work.I did have trouble deciding on the colours and after a couple of stressful months, I followed up with a colour consultant that Earl recommended. It was money well spent and we are very pleased with how it turned out.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl and his crew.
Earl and his team helped me dramatically improve the interior of a recently purchased 1960 Bungalow. They prepped and painted the main level completely (ceiling, walls, windows, door jams, etc.) and did some painting in basement as well. Easy to work with from the start to finish. Great job, on time, and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend Earl’s Paintworks. I will most likely be using their services again soon!

Earl is the best in the business! We hired Earl to paint the exterior of our 106 year-old heritage home that was in disrepair. Our house is a craftsman bungalow that required highly detailed workmanship. Because of the uniqueness of the house, and its heritage value, we were nervous to hire the job out to just anyone. We met with a number of companies and Earl's Paintworks stood tall above the rest. We loved that Earl was an owner/operator and knew after talking to him that he'd take great care with our beloved home. We weren't wrong! Earl and Jeremy were meticulous - sanding every nook and cranny to ensure a perfect finish that would stand the test of time. We wanted a tri-colour scheme to show off the home's craftsmanship, which required a lot of taping, cutting, and intricate work. Our neighbours would stop by to compliment Earl and Jeremy - blown away by the precision and quality of their work. Both my fiancé and I were sad to see them leave. Earl and Jeremy had become fast friends, always making time to stop and visit with us (despite putting in long days of hard labour). Couldn't recommend them enough! If you are looking for a painter, do yourself a favour, and stop here.

We recently hired Earl's Paintworks to repaint the entire interior of a newly-purchased home and could not be more pleased with the quality of the work and exceptional service provided from start to finish. We were on a very tight timeline & Earl (the owner) and Jeremy showed up ready to work 30 minutes after we took possession of the house. They put in long hours to finish the job in only 8.5 days, despite the fact that it was a massive project (3 storey house with over 30 windows/doors to paint around and some 20ft ceilings). The care they took to cover our hardwood floors, carpeting and cabinetry was remarkable - not a drop of paint left anywhere it didn't belong.Earl was truly a pleasure to work with, responded to our questions in a timely & friendly fashion, and provided knowledgeable (and realistic) advice on different finishes and colour options. He even went above and beyond to point out some small repairs that needed to be addressed around the house which was helpful to us as new owners. We had 4 different companies quote on the job and chose Earl's Paintworks based on a gut feeling that Earl was the right choice. Very happy with our decision - so much so that we're hoping to have them back this summer to do the exterior of our house as well.We would recommend Earl's Paintworks to anyone without hesitation. If you're looking for a hardworking, locally-owned company to do an efficient, professional, super high quality job, this is it!

We wanted the interior and doors repainted in our home in preparation for selling. We obtained a couple of quotes from painters. We ended up choosing Earl due to our positive interactions with him.This is a small but very professional company. It was good to work with a smaller company where the person painting your home is the actual owner and therefore, someone who took full responsibility for the work. Earl was very helpful with colour suggestions. He was easy to communicate with via both emails, phone calls and text. Earl was a perfectionist. He finished our 2 level 2000 sq ft home in about 6 full days. He came a few weeks later to do the exterior doors (garage and entry) when the weather was warmer.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl's Paintworks.
