Touch up your kitchen with these five items to keep it bright, airy, and inviting. As the one place at home that plays a role in your nutrition, you’ll want no less than “good vibes” in the space where your food is prepared.
A bowl of fruit
It’s standard, classic, and you can never go wrong: a bowl of fruit – whether fake or real – is a staple go-to in decorating the kitchen. Choose a deep, clear bowl to make the fruits and their colors stand out. Or mix it up with a large basket, as you see fit.
A set of accent accessories
Decorative dishes, chairs, coffee mugs, place mats, oven mitts, salt ‘n pepper shakers, and other accessories that serve as accents to your kitchen’s color scheme should make the space pop to the eyes.
Indulge in a hint of the coffeeshop ambiance by installing a chalkboard where you can write reminders, recipes, or inspirational quotes. Use chalkboard paint for a cleaner look.
A snack display
Cereal, marshmallows, nuts, cookies, chocolate, candy – you name it. Pour the snacks in mason jars and place them in an attractive setup on your kitchen counter. Bright, colorful snacks or pickled vegetables and fruits should make your display all the more inviting.
Some foliage to freshen up the space. A vase of flowers on the kitchen counter; terrariums or small cacti and potted plants on the shelves. It’s a breath of fresh air, as they say.
