Kitchen Decorating - Quick Tips
Here are some super quick ways to decorate the kitchen. Since we all spend so much time in the
kitchen it is important to add a few decor points to make the space interesting
Plates - Plates are a great decorating element in the kitchen. You can hang them around the
backsplash for a nice fell around the counter top. You can hang them on the wall in a group just as
you would an art print, or group of prints. Another place to add plates is above your cabinets in that
empty space between you ceiling and cabinets.
Bring the Food Out - A quick and easy way to add color and interest to your kitchen is by
bringing some food, putting it in clear plastic containers or jars then placing them on the counter. A
great one to start with is pasta, pasta can be bought in different colors. Some other foods to bring
out to the counter are popcorn seeds and rice. Food on the counter will add some instant texture
and color to your counter tops.
Cabinet Doors - Another way to liven up the kitchen is remove a few cabinet doors and let
the food in the cabinet be visible (provided the contents are organized). This is almost like adding a
piece of art to the wall, the colors and textures from the items in your cabinets will really spice up the space.
Add Flowers - Adding fresh cut flowers once a week, or once every two weeks, will add a lot. It
will add beautiful colors, sweet fragrances and life.
Throw Rugs - Add a couple throw rugs, one in front of your sink, and one in front of the fridge.
