Kitchens should be the most personalized of all the rooms in your house because the decorating theme of a kitchen typically exudes a person’s decorating style and taste. While decorating the kitchen, you should focus the design on your personal preferences. You most likely spend a lot of time in your kitchen preparing meals and washing dishes. So make sure the décor is designed around your likes and dislikes. Naturally, you can consider your family too, but if you’re the one in charge of the kitchen most of the time, you should consider it to be your room. The simplest way to add some flavor while decorating your kitchen is by coating it with fresh paint. If you are not in the mood to paint, however, do not fret. There are many other ideas for kitchen decorations that do not involve paint.
First of all, put up new curtains to give your kitchen a fresh new look. Sometimes, this could be the only change your kitchen really needs to look entirely new. It is a basic and affordable decorating method, which can bring out your kitchen’s personality with minimal effort. If your kitchen has a country feel to it, adding several country-themed curtains could bring your decorating scheme together.
Secondly, put an area rug on the floor to add more color accents and accessories. It is preferred to add a rug that already matches the theme and to put it as far away from the cooking surfaces as you can, in order to prevent stains and spills onto the rug. Also, be sure to ask the rug manufacturer about how to properly care for the rug. Get details about how to clean the rug in case you spill something, so you can avoid any permanent stains to it in the future.
Next, find some fresh kitchen accessories; this is always welcome in any kitchen. Accessories begin to feel boring after a while, so new paper towel racks, salt and pepper shakers, bread boxes, and jars can easily give your kitchen a whole new look. If you have enough money in your budget after getting new accessories, buy a brand new kitchen gadget for the new theme, as well. Go for a red coffee maker to match your red apples, for example, instead of sticking to the conventional white coffee maker. Try to be more creative and personalize things as much as you can.
If you are the creative, artsy type, you can even try to make personal kitchen decorating accessories yourself. There are several craft stores around that sell unfinished items for kitchens, which you can buy and then decorate as you wish. You can buy an unfinished bread box, for example, and design it your way to fit your personal theme of decoration. Once you are done, the bread box will then be proof of your creative abilities. If you personalize every piece of decoration in your kitchen, it will truly receive the unique touch that it deserves.
The food and nurture that you provide your family primarily stems from your kitchen. Therefore, if you keep adding personalized things to your kitchen, you will add incredible memories for your entire family. Start personalizing your kitchen today; you are sure to create a special and unique feel that your whole family will appreciate and love.
