The kitchen of your home is typically the hub of daily activity. As a result, you need to create a comfortable and welcoming environment that will beckon both your family and guests to come in, sit down and stay a while. A great way to create this ambiance is with the kitchen decorations you use in the space. No matter if your tastes are modern and chic or vintage with a splash of cottage charm, there are decorations that can complement the style that you wish to exude.

As you begin decorating your kitchen it is essential you tackle one task at a time. If you try to do everything at once you may become overwhelmed, causing major delays in the decorating process. The first step in any decorating project is to decide on a central theme that the entire space will be based on. Once you have made this decision you can begin choosing the decorations that will help to create a cohesive look in your kitchen. 

If you decide to paint the walls or cabinets keep in mind these tips:
  • White (or other light colors) can help a small kitchen appear larger
  • Dark colors are the perfect option for accent walls or fixtures that you want to "blend" into the space
  • Always prime the surface to ensure optimum coverage of the color you choose

The paint you add to the kitchen will help you to create that warm and welcoming feeling that you are striving for.

If you are decorating your kitchen on a budget you may not have the funds to completely replace the major appliances in the space. Instead, try changing the hardware on the cabinets and adding new tablecloths and place mats to the space.

You can also change the decorations as the seasons change. For example, purchase seasonal flowers, which are easily changed and update the decor with upcoming holidays or to mimic the colors of the season. For example, you can use brown, orange, red and gold in the fall and opt for lighter colors in the spring, such as pale blue, pink and yellow. The key to being able to do this is using a neutral palate in the rest of the room.

The decorations you choose for your kitchen should not only help create a welcoming feel for the room but also express your personal taste and style. You are sure to spend many hours cooking, talking and living in this space, therefore it should be comfortable to stay in for long periods of time. There is no limit to the looks you can create by adding custom pieces to the space as well. From paintings to sculptures and vintage pots and pans, the items you hang on the wall will create conversation pieces in the space. You are only limited by your imagination and creativity when it comes to kitchen decorations. Cut loose and let your creative eye take over to make a space that will be refuge for late night talks, tears and triumphs.
