Your kitchen is the most active room of your home by far – even if you’ve got an at-home gym!
Not long goes by before someone else is in there making some culinary creations, enjoying a beverage, organising their day or doing homework at the counter. A kitchen is at the forefront of family life, so it should be a priority when it comes to decorating! It can be tempting to neglect this space in the name of function or risk of spoiling, but you should really be dedicating some care and consideration to making it look and feel homely, warm and above all inviting!
Personalise your space
The kitchen is all about family, so your little clan should be reflected in your kitchen’s design! This can be as big or small as you like, as long as it’s there. A great way to bring some personality to a kitchen is by adding a collection of photographs in an aesthetic formation on the wall! You could go eclectic, using different sized and coloured frames with a series of contrasting photographs, or you could lean into a more modern look. Sleek frames with black and white photographs look stunning the kitchen and will go with any colour scheme.
Keep it light and bright
A kitchen full of accessories, appliances and other knick-knacks is pretty unavoidable unless you lead a truly minimalist lifestyle. To avoid your worktops looking cluttered and chaotic, be sure to select your appliances in light, airy tones. This will maintain a fresh and open vibe in your space and minimise that cramped feeling that can occur in the kitchen. A clever way to go about this is to find kitchen accessories made from glass! These take up minimal space and look incredibly cool, contemporary and creative.
Get creative with storage
Your kitchen needs to be facilitating when it comes to storage, otherwise, the room and your life will become a little bit of a mess. Be clever with your storage and organisational solutions, use hooks inside of cabinets to hang your spoons and ladles, add extra storage baskets into drawers to segment a cabinet and decant your dry groceries out of their packaging into storage boxes. These simple yet handy tips are going to totally transform your space! Remember, an organisation doesn’t only have to apply to your kitchen, you can also add a family planner or calendar in here to keep on track of your family’s plans, appointments and whereabouts.
Add a feature wall
This is a beautiful and unique way to enhance your kitchen! Adding a feature wall full of art, one dramatic piece, or even creative tiling looks absolutely fantastic. This is particularly great if you have a smaller space and you can’t afford to be adding a tonne of accessories around your home. Choose a neutral-toned piece with subtle pops of colour to really make the most out of this eye-catching home accent.
Colour is a simple and cost-effective way of bringing a little life into your home, without compromising the overall theme or vibe of the household. Choose a statement tone to pair with two neutrals to really get a warm and personalised effect.
These kitchen décor tips and tricks are sure to charge your house with serious style and finesse, whilst still feeling like home. Your whole family is going to be enjoying this space with you, so be sure to consult them when you’re thinking about making changes. This means that your kitchen will embody the personality of your whole household, which is what it’s all about.
