The kitchen is more than just a space for cooking and eating. It is the part of your home where all of the action takes place. Whether you are renovating or simply redecorating, here are 15 decorating ideas that will add more life to your kitchen:
1. Black and white
A monochromatic palette adds more personality to your kitchen. Go for unexpected graphic patterns for an exciting twist.
2. Something blue
Not a fan of a monochromatic color scheme? To introduce more color, give your cabinets a fresh coat of blue paint. Shades of blue are a perfect choice. They are both trendy and soothing to the eyes.
3. Shelf Life
Declutter your kitchen by installing more shelves. You may also take inspiration from the DIY bookshelf in our photo. It is a great space-saver and an interesting piece too.
A neutral kitchen may look bland and boring. Play it up by inviting different shades and textures. Go for shades of gray, ivory and cream.
5. Dining area
Add a dining area to your kitchen with a generously sized table that can accommodate holiday dinners, game nights and science projects. It is extremely exciting to decorate plus it brings the “eat” into your kitchen.
6. Rays of Sunshine
A monochromatic palette can get a burst of charm from bright pops of yellow. Bring in fresh blooms or if you need more storage space, freestanding pieces to hold appliances, dishes and other essentials.
7. Bold colors
If you have a modern taste, go for a bold color choice. Shades of red can take your kitchen in daring heights. To avoid visual commotion, make sure the rest of your kitchen coordinates with your choice of color.
8. High ceiling
Large vaulted ceilings and equally large windows can make your small kitchen appear larger. It also brings in more light into the space.
9. Colorful stove
For a nice pop of color, bring in a colored stove. It will totally transform the look of your kitchen. Be on the lookout for interesting pieces such as vintage-looking ones like in the picture.
10. Wooden accents
A white kitchen never goes out of style. However, it can bore you out. To make it surprising, invite natural touches made of wood.
11. Tiny details
Do not overlook the tiny details. They matter! Something as little as a colorful curtain can give your kitchen a much-needed pop.
12. Stick to tradition
Traditionally, the stove is the focal point of the kitchen. Decorate the rest of your space around your cooking zone. Just as you’d decorate a living room around your upholstery or a bedroom around your bed, plan your kitchen’s décor based on the cooking zone.
13. Classy Chandelier
Chandeliers are not only for dining or living room areas. They can also be used in your kitchen to add a hint of class.
14. Touch of Turquoise
Give your kitchen a burst of color by putting in turquoise-colored décor. Use the color in overhead lighting, bar stools and countertop accessories.
15. Farmhouse feel
Nothing is more cozy than a kitchen with a farmhouse feel. Achieve the look with wooden accents, potted greens and country-inspired furniture.
