Put A Sprinkle Of Spring Into Your Kitchen Decor
In spring, everything comes back into bloom. Things seem brighter, lighter and fresher. We often give our homes a spring clean and freshen them up at this time of the year. However, sometimes your kitchen gets left out. We often forget that the kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house. Some even say that it is the heart of the home. So how do we go about showing it off to its best potential? There are a few simple but effective ways to add a little sprinkle of spring decor into your kitchen. We show you just a few of the best.
Freshen things up with a coat of paint.
The first thing that you might want to think about is the colour of your kitchen. Does it look dull and plain? If so, then why not think about painting the walls and injecting a dose of spring fresh colour to the walls? If you are thinking about spring tones then pastel colours are always a safe bet. You could opt for a plain and ‘safe’ cream wall, or you could up the anti with something more adventurous. Think about using blush pinks, sorbet lemon colours and pastel mint green. Your kitchen paint job can make a design statement if you pair the right accessories with it.
Flowers for colour and scent.
Fresh cut flowers in a vase can make all the difference to how your kitchen looks and smells. A big and beautiful vase of cute coloured blooms is a fantastic way to create a pop of colour in a specific corner of your kitchen. Put them in a classic cut crystal vase or a goldfish bowl style vase for a more modern look. Peonies are so on trend again this year, but you can’t go wrong with any fresh flowers. If you want something that will last, then you could even consider some artificial flowers. Some look so realistic that your guests might be fooled into thinking that they are real. A great way to dress your kitchen windows is to purchase a small, thin vase. Add a single long stemmed flower and place it in the middle of your windowsill.
A new design.
If you are feeling adventurous or want to change up the style of your kitchen completely then think about moving things around. One thing that I’ve noticed is that different towns and cities have different styles. Kitchens in Bournemouth are beautiful. Maybe it is something about that coastal setting that makes people embrace this stunning style? Think about the position of your kitchen worktops. Does the space work well for you? You can always change any aspect. Plan out your design on paper and then start looking into your options!
Cute and stylish accessories.
Finish the whole thing off with a selection of cute and stylish kitchen accessories. The farmhouse look works well in large kitchens. A good kitchen clock is essential to timing your meals. Pictures, vases and fruit bowls are another great way to play with colour and texture in your kitchen design. Get creative and don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
