Fun and Funky Eclectic Kitchen Design

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and more and more people are turning to a cleaner, more updated kitchen, even if the rest of the home stays very traditional. It’s common to hear a joke about having an eclectic style, but in terms of interior design, “eclectic” doesn’t mean “unfocused” or “random.” It means linking unexpected design elements and incorporating fun, funky or even outrageous items in visually cohesive ways. The ‘eclectic’ as more of an old-meets-new mentality. Start with one item you love and build a design around it. Maybe it’s a tile, or a beautiful piece of stone for a countertop.” Or perhaps you have a collection of unusual items you’d like to show off. Take that single element and consider its texture, color, style and era to find accessories and finishes that complement it. Don’t be afraid to choose companion items from a different decade or design style as long as you find a common thread. Please Take a look and keep trying.
