Your kitchen is most likely where the majority of memories within your home are going to be made. It’s likely where most of them have already occurred. And as a result, this is an area of your home that needs to be highly decorated.

After all, it will be one of the main areas where both you and your family are going to be spending a large portion of their time. In order to accommodate this daily flow of traffic, you’ll definitely want to space things out in the most convenient way possible. With that being said, we are going to provide you with cost effective and simple kitchen décor ideas that anyone can apply in their home.

Kitchen Decorating 101

Keep in mind that there are four basic layouts that you can choose to have laid out for your kitchen:

  • A “Gallery-Shape” theme that has appliances that are sitting on opposite sides of one another. 
  • The “L-Shape” theme is designed to provide your kitchen with three essential elements that are all lined up one after another (fridge, stove, and sink). 
  • The “U-Shaped” theme has elements that are located on three separate walls. 
  • The “G-Shape” theme is designed to add a fourth wall to your room so that you can have more space in your kitchen for guests and additional appliances if needed. 

Before you partake in any one of these, it is essential that you understand them all. You should have a clear idea about what you’re looking for in your head before you decide to invest in any of the above themes that we just discussed.

Picking Colors for Your Kitchen

Adding the right color to your kitchen can take you a long way in regards to kitchen décor. The perfect color can capture a feeling and provide a certain mood in this area of your home. Keep in mind that more modern looks for kitchens tend to have very clean colors such as black or white and don’t tend to get too fancy in the design department. They usually have silver appliances and most of their panels are custom built very minimally.

When you are searching for items to place within your kitchen, make sure that you measure out the area beforehand. This will provide you with an exact approximation of exactly what you’ll need and what size it needs to be. For example, does your kitchen have enough space for a folding chair? How large an island would you need to purchase in order to take up the perfect amount of room within your kitchen? These are all questions that you should be asking on a regular basis.


All in all, kitchen décor is really as simple or as hard as people make it out to be. If you aren’t really sure where to proceed then there are a variety of books and online resources that you could use to get you started. Once you have an idea, see if it fits within your budget before moving forward with it.
