If you are a minimalist at heart, your kitchen decorating ideas probably revolve around only a few key pieces of kitchen furniture. A big kitchen with a collection of stainless steel kitchen appliances and a kitchen island perhaps. However, if you love to cook and spend time in your kitchen as much as the rest of the house, you will want more. You’ll want a kitchen with comfortable sofas, an inviting kitchen island, kitchen cabinets that have personality, and an overall motif that reflect your style. Here are some tips and tricks for kitchen decorating that will help you create a kitchen you can be proud of.
Minimalist kitchen decorating is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of money or stress on kitchen decorating. A kitchen without any visual clutter is like a bathroom without a mirror. It’s functional and it doesn’t say anything about who you are and what you like. With minimal kitchen decorating, all the visual focal points are in the kitchen itself, from the kitchen island or kitchen peninsula, to the kitchen countertops, and even the kitchen cabinet doors.
Minimalists love clean lines and they know that kitchen design should also be functional. So your kitchen decorating theme will include lots of storage options and easy access to kitchen counters. You might choose to go with glass cabinet doors for easy looking yet durable cabinet doors and sleek hardware.
Functional, plain kitchen cabinets allow you to use your kitchen design to its fullest potential. If you are going for a modern kitchen design, choose simple kitchen cabinets that have sleek and straight lines. If you want something with personality, go with stained glass or some wood with decorative molding. Glass kitchen cabinets hide in the nooks and crannies that are usually the downfall of uninviting kitchen cabinets. Also, glass cabinet doors can be tinted in any color to add a bit of color to the kitchen and make it stand out.
Functional accessories are also an important part of kitchen decorating. For instance, you should have a way to display your dry and frozen goods. Display containers on kitchen counters are a great idea and keep your kitchen clutter free. A cookie jar is another practical kitchen decorating accessory. It’s a container that holds pre-made cookies or other baked goods so that you don’t have to worry about reaching for a box of cookies when you’re ready to eat.
You don’t have to follow any cookie cutter kitchen decorating styles to create a kitchen that is attractive and functional. Just use your imagination. The possibilities are endless. Just keep in mind the fact that kitchen decorating should create as much visual appeal as functionality. Keep your kitchen clean and organized, but don’t let that take away from the fun parts of your kitchen decorating!
No matter how you plan on using your kitchen, it’s always a good idea to plan well ahead. Decide where you want to put your stove, what type of kitchen decorating colors and accessories you want, and what kitchen furniture you want before you start to do any kitchen decorating. There is no reason to start a kitchen project without doing this. If you don’t plan ahead, it will be difficult to know where to place your stove, how to use your kitchen tools properly, and how to use your kitchen decorating colors.
Don’t be afraid to experiment. Don’t be afraid to walk into your kitchen and take a look around for ideas. Most kitchen decorating projects take some trial and error. Sometimes, it takes a trip to the home store to get that perfect kitchen gadget that you’ve been looking for. Whatever you do, don’t forget to take lots of pictures of your kitchen decorating projects to share with friends and family!
