Are you looking for a couple of fun ideas to spice up your kitchen? We all devote so much of our energy to designing and redecorating our bedrooms and living room, but what about the kitchen?
It feels like the majority of your awake hours at home are in the kitchen, so let’s stop neglecting it. You spend a lot of time enjoying meals and conversing with your family in that room.
Pay attention to your kitchen! If you’re in love with home décor, interior design, or do-it-yourself home projects, this is the blog post for you.
You’re ready to decorate and renovate your kitchen. Without further ado, let’s get right into the theme of…themes!
There’s the print pile-on theme. Think patterns, patterns, patterns! Whether you want stripes or polka-dots, pile on the patterns. There’s also the shelf theme, where you have your china, dishes, and flower vases on open shelves. Why not put all your tasteful items on display? They’re practically works of art. If you keep it tidy, this could be a great theme for you. Another storage-related theme is the hideaway theme. A kitchen armoire can hide away all of your bulky items that you want to keep private.
There are countless other themes including café-style, diner-style, tranquil kitchen, modern farmhouse kitchen, and many more! Once you pick a creative and personalized theme, go all out!
Make sure your kitchen is well-lit. To reiterate, you spend a lot of time in your kitchen. Add some standing lamps, LED strip lights, candles, a mirror, and a lighter paint color.
Darker colored walls make the kitchen feel dark and less homely. A large mirror can reflect light which could brighten up the place. If you have a large window in your kitchen, open up those shades to reveal some natural light.
Try getting a wall candle holder, a candle mount, or some sort of wall structure so you can decorate your walls with candles. Or, you can place candles on the mantle. Don’t forget to blow them out when you leave the room.
You know what could really jazz up your kitchen, an indoor plant! If your kitchen gets a lot of sunlight, it could be the perfect room to house an indoor plant.
Try mint, basil, parsley, and other herbs. These small plants can be the greenery you need to see in your kitchen. Aloe vera and cacti are also great options, as they don’t require much upkeep. Keep them in a sunny spot and add a few tablespoons of water every few weeks and you’re good to go.
The next time you accidentally burn yourself in the oven, you can use that aloe on your burn! Hanging baskets are great because they don’t take up any counter space. You could hang English ivy or a spider plant.
Indoor plants will help lift your mood and create a welcoming space in your kitchen.
I don’t know about you, but I find that islands look great in most kitchens! If you’ve got the space and you’ve always wanted an island, there’s no time like the present to start working out a design.
Not only do they look great, they’re functional. Whether you want to cook food or pull up a chair and eat a meal on it, you’ll love your island. Your island can be white, wooden, brick-themed, farm-house style, modern, chick, or classic.
Whatever theme and style that you’re interested in, there’s an island that is calling your name!
If you know your kitchen needs some love and attention, it’s time to get cracking on this project. Sometimes the kitchen gets neglected for whatever reason.
Well, now you realize that the kitchen is a place of togetherness and connection. You might as well make it look nice. No one likes a dark, empty kitchen with tattered wallpaper and splotchy paintwork. After you pick out your theme, look into islands, indoor plants, and lighting designs.
If you love do-it-yourself projects, you’ll love to see your kitchen transform into a thing of beauty! I believe in you. Thanks for reading!
