Pots and pans – It's a kitchen, your allowed to show off your cooking utensils, especially when you have fancy utensils. Hang up your pots and pans; show off your spatulas and ladles.

Walls – though less visibly weighed, in the kitchen compared to other rooms, your walls color and texture, and in some special cases, shape can accent a kitchens visual experience.

Upper cabinets, or cupboards – One of the most thought about renovations. Your cabinets can set the initial style for the whole kitchen due to just the first-seen factor in your kitchen.

Cabinet Doors – although usually considered at the same time as the cabinets, the doors alone can be changed and upgraded and remodeled with new hardware, or cabinet glass inserts.

Ceiling – your ceiling, on of the least contemplated renovation points, can also have a large visual impact of your kitchen, through color, texture, borders, contrast, the list can go on for a long time of what you can do with your ceiling to enhance or contrast your kitchen.
