There are plenty of places to find kitchen makeover ideas. Some people opt for the library. Others simply troll the internet looking for inspiration. Here are some of our favorite places to get ideas for kitchen makeovers and to find kitchen makeover pictures.
Obviously the internet is a treasure trove of inspiration for someone who would like to remodel or redecorate her kitchen. There are thousands of websites out there that are devoted to home décor and style. A simple search on Google will turn up plenty of other kitchen design websites-all of which will be full of kitchen makeover pictures.
In addition to the design-centric websites, you might also consider surfing through photo sharing websites. Flickr, for instance, has millions of photos that range from the professionally taken to the “who gave the camera to the toddler” level of expertise. Flickr and other photo sharing websites are a great way to get a feel for the kitchen makeover project as well as the finished design. After all, people love to take “during” pictures of a makeover project. Viewing these photos will give you an idea of how much work will be involved in the project that you choose.
Your favorite bookstore will also have plenty of books (filled to the brim with makeover ideas and pictures) on modern design and books that explore earlier decades’ trends and styles. Bookstores also usually feature a wide variety of design and decorating magazines that you can look through for inspiration.
If you truly want to get a feel for the design trends and styles of earlier decades, however, you should pay a visit to the library. Unlike bookstores, which specialize in recently published materials, the library will have books full of makeover ideas that date back decades or even centuries (if you have a very extensive library)! What better way to find authentic makeover pictures from the decades you love the most than to see them in the publications that were published during those decades?
Finally, it is important that you not forget about your friends and family members. It is highly likely that your inspiration for a makeover struck when you were visiting someone in your social or familial circle. Why not ask them where they got their own kitchen makeover ideas? Ask to see the kitchen makeover pictures they took while the remodel or redecorating was taking place. Your friends and family might also be able to help you find less expensive ways to accomplish the look you are going for and, as an added bonus, these are people who are already familiar with your taste and, probably, your kitchen in its current state!
Kitchen makeover projects can be a lot of fun but it is always a good idea to sift through a few kitchen makeover ideas before you start your project. After all, you don’t want to get stuck halfway through your makeover and not know how to finish the job!
