When was the last time you spruced up your kitchen? If it's been quite awhile since you gave this frequented space some TLC, you might want to consider bringing in new discount window treatments, appliances and wall paint sooner rather than later. Doing so can revitalize your kitchen and bring it to its full potential.

However, it can be tricky redesigning a space, especially if you've never done so before. One way to begin redecorating is to decide on a theme for the room. This can help you narrow down your choices as you shop for new cabinets, accessories and appliances for your space.

Contemporary kitchens are growing in popularity as more people strive for a clean, modern look in their homes. Here are some tips on how to create a contemporary space without knocking down any walls or busting your budget.

1. Consider open shelving.
Open shelves can give you an opportunity to display some of your most prized appliances and dishes as well as make commonly used items more accessible. More minimalist, modern kitchens are incorporating open shelves and cabinets to create a unique look. If you don't like the appearance of these shelves once they're installed, simply add doors!

2. Go eco-friendly with your window treatments.
It's no secret that more people are becoming environmentally conscious, especially when it comes to designing their homes. To fall in line with this trend, you may want to bring bamboo window blinds into your kitchen. Not only are these eco-friendly, but they are simple to control - open them when you want light or easily close them when you want additional privacy.

3. Use bold colors.
While it's completely acceptable to stick with neutrals for a modern space, there's no rule that says you have to limit yourself to black and white! reports that modern rooms are typically designed to make a statement. With that in mind, think about how a bold hue can create a memorable impression on everyone who uses the room. Whether you love fire engine red or tangerine, don't knock it until you try it!

By taking the previous three tips into account, you can make it easier to design a contemporary kitchen, even if you're not experienced in decorating. In the end, everyone will wonder how you pulled it off!
