Mix And Match Your Furniture

Matching all your pieces isn’t very much in trend right now, and a little bit of mix and match will make your kitchen look unique without overbearing it. Consider mixing and matching your stools, consider bringing in multiple different hues or even patterns and sizes for that engaging look that is charming with a hint of unique. Furthermore, use stools in different sizes for the ultimate contrast.

Load Up On Lighting

Consider bringing in light fixtures that are large enough to fill the room yet do not take away from your overall facts. It’s all about making the room have a chic appeal while still being charming and bright. Bring in a chandelier and add other light fixtures around for that cohesive charming appeal.
