If you do not have adequate budget to spend on expensive wallpapers or wall paints, you need to be a bit creative and smart while refurbishing your kitchen walls. You can cover one or more kitchen walls with a print you find eye catching. All you need to do is buy a stencil, available in a wide variety in the market, to create a print that suits your personality or kitchen theme aptly.
Yet another thrifty way to add elegance and uniqueness to a kitchen décor is to update its lighting. If there are pendant lights, replace them with ceiling lights.
