How to decorate a kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a house, because it is where meals are cooked and where family tends to converge and hang out. There are many ways to add decorations to a kitchen and make it inviting and warm. Here are some tips on how to decorate a kitchen.
Choose a central theme
It's important that your kitchen decorating be cohesive and make the room look pulled together. Accomplish this by deciding on one theme for your kitchen and choosing decorations that match it. Some home improvement stores have entire sets of kitchen decorations based on themes like country living, French or art deco styles.
Focus on one element at a time
Decorating a kitchen can become overwhelming if you try to change everything at once. Give yourself one decorating project, like painting or buying new dishes, and stay with that project until it's completed. You can move on to others later if you feel your kitchen needs more decorating.
Paint the walls or cabinets
A room's color helps it feel warm or relaxing, so decorate your kitchen by adding a fresh coat of paint to the walls or cabinets. White is a popular choice, but you can opt for a light shade of blue or yellow if an all-white room isn't appealing.
Add fresh flowers
Plants and flowers add lively decoration to any room and are good for the environment. Add a functional decoration to your kitchen by creating a window box with fresh herbs, or replace fresh-cut flowers in a kitchen table vase every few days to keep it looking new.
Change small details
Update your kitchen's look without spending money on new appliances by updating small details that draw attention. Change your drawer pulls or cabinet handles to brushed steel or painted ceramic to give your kitchen more personality. Paint window and door frames to give the room more dimension and color.
Switch decor seasonally
Give your kitchen a celebratory feel by changing out linens, curtains or dishes for special holidays. Rotate these items, which all complement the personality of your kitchen, with the changing seasons to add seasonal colors and elements.
Change the linens and add bigger partition
One way to give the whole room a cohesive theme is to choose one pattern for your curtains, tablecloth and hand towels and create a matching set of linens.
Remember that any new decorations should still allow your kitchen to be practical and functional. Avoid any large decorative items that will take up space on your counter tops or stove. Opt for wall hangings and hanging decorations that will be out of your way.
