Kitchen Styling Tips and Ideas
The kitchen area is one of the most functional parts of the house, but is at times given the least attention when it comes to styling. And some people would prefer for their kitchen to just be functional because most of the ‘messy stuff’ happens there. Well, being functional doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish, so why not try it both? Kitchens that are functional and stylish don’t just exist in cooking shows because you can also make your own.
Here are some of the tips and ideas to style your kitchen at home:
1. Style with your Kitchen Appliances and Tools
The things you are used to see in your kitchen are not just tools to make your family’s meal, but it can also be a decoration in your kitchen area. With proper placement of these tools, they can add style and at the same organization in your kitchen area. Pots and pans could be one of the focal points of styling your kitchen. Spice things up and pick colors that will give-off a young and bright vibe, but if you’re more of a classic and neat type, you can always go with stainless steel pots and pans.
Chopping boards are not just for cutting meat and vegetables, but it can also be used as a décor to your kitchen. These tools come in different shapes and sizes depending on your preference. When it comes to the material, choose a wood chopping board if you like a natural theme, or a plastic chopping board for a clean looking kitchen style.
With kitchen knives and utensils, most people prefer the classics like stainless steel utensils, black plastic utensils, and the chef’s knife. But if you want to experiment with the style, feel free to do so. Trash bins, fiber cloths, and pot holders can also be used to add style in your kitchen.
2. Go for Plants
Plants are a great accent to your home, especially to your kitchen. It gives an aesthetic vibe to your cooking area and has its own double purpose. You can plant or grow herbs in your kitchen that can be used for cooking.
If you decide to put a houseplant, it’s better to place it at the corner of the counter, above the fridge, and on the kitchen table. If you’re planning to put herbs, place them near the window and faucet.
3. Put Colorful Fruits
Fruits are another great accent to your home because you can use different fruits in styling your kitchen. If you like using the same fruit as a décor, we suggest using the fresh one. If you don’t want the fruits to be rotten, you could always use a plastic fruit. Just don’t forget to remove the dust.
4. Invest in Matching Containers
To make your kitchen more stylish, a good tip for you is to invest in matching containers.
Matching styles in your kitchen shows unity and neatness in the area.
5. Put a Wall Decor
For extra aesthetics to your kitchen, try adding paintings to your kitchen walls. Paintings can be hung on the wall, or just let it lean on the wall above the counter. You can also use a picture, whether it’s a family photo or portrait, and place them on the area of the counter that won’t look cluttered.
6. Place Lasting Counters and Cabinets
Kitchen counters are the soul of your cooking area, this is where you place your kitchen tools and other stuff. Choose a theme and color for your counter that will match your stove and other appliances. It can be made out of marble, soapstone, or granite. Also, pick cabinets that are spacious and functional, but not too space-consuming.
Styling your kitchen doesn’t have to be hard and expensive. Simple kitchen tools and different decorations could actually go a long way.
