The kitchen in a home is its heart. Friends and family often gather in a kitchen rather than in the more formal living room. If you have one of those open-plan kitchens, there is a good chance that you will spend a lot of time in it. Besides preparing family meals and filling up the dishwasher, sharing an afternoon glass of wine and a quick chat with a friend is better in a kitchen than in other living spaces. So, how to make kitchen look nice?
Kitchen Décor Ideas
You can use some artwork to fill up open walls. If you have a large wall in the kitchen, one without a tiled backsplash, feel free to decorate it to make your space look homey and inviting.
1. Use a couple of decorative plates
If you have some decorative plates, arrange them in an attractive display to fill that large open wall.
2. Hang up a mirror
A mirror adds light into the kitchen space and makes the room look larger. So, if your kitchen is on the small side, make the space appear larger than it is with a mirror filling that blank wall.
3. Use family photos in attractive frames
Your family spends a lot of time in the kitchen, so display some of your favorite moments in a mini-gallery. There is nothing better to inspire your cooking with love than seeing the likeness of your loved ones when you are preparing family feasts.
4. Carry the theme of your other spaces into your kitchen
Maybe you like natural elements; use a couple of pictures or ornaments that let the house decor theme spill into the kitchen. Perhaps, a reclaimed wood shelf to display some copper pots will add interest to your space. This way, you can mix the practical with the whimsical, decorative items.
5. Use kitchen utensils to decorate
Grouping together different pieces of the same utensil can look cool. What about getting some old cutting boards or wooden spoons into a wall display?
6. Frame a large print
If you love to travel, you can frame a print of your favorite destination to hang on a wall. It will brighten up your space, bring back happy memories, and put you in a good mood when you are cooking.
7. Add a colorful painting
If you are looking to break the monotony of the natural finishes in your kitchen, why not get a brightly colored painting from your favorite artist? Better still, try to do some DIY painting for that personal touch.
8. Use memes and phrases
If you have a favorite saying or just a word that can be set decoratively, use it to make your kitchen space personal. You can mount individual letters or even use paint to write the saying on the wall.
9. Put up pictures of your favorite food
Many prints are available depicting cups of coffee, images of fruits, or other food items. After all, it is a kitchen where food is made, so there is no reason why food images cannot be displayed to bring warmth and color to your space.
10. Hanging shelves
Hanging open shelves in the kitchen can fill up the empty wall spaces while giving you extra storage space. Fill them up with things you love, and even simple shelves can be transformed into art.
