The kitchen is usually the busiest room in the house and yet the most overlooked when it comes to décor. A well-decorated kitchen has the ability to create a peaceful and joyous atmosphere that will help you make better meals. If your kitchen is just mundane and ordinary, here are 5 decoration ideas you can try;


One of the easiest ways interior decorators use to transform a room is using color. The secret is finding out which is the focal point and
let it pop even more using a bold color. Ideally, you should have three colors in the kitchen or even any other room. The first color is the neutral color that is painted on the walls and it can be white, ivory or cream. The second color is the already existing color that you can’t change maybe on your countertops and appliances. The third color is what will make all the difference because it will be bold and dangerous. You can use this color on your stools, vases and other small items as long as it blends well with the main color.

Use the focal point

The focal point is that one place that catches your eye first when you enter the kitchen. You can hang a huge painting on the focal
point or just have it painted with the statement color. Alternatively, you can hang some framed photos and make a wall collage or use textured wallpaper to bring it up even more.

Open shelves

There are so many ways you can do this latest trend of open shelves. The design creates a visual space where you can display beautiful things. The simplest way is to build a few floating shelves on an open wall. If you can find unique designs that would be great, but simple open shelves will also do well. Another way is to remove the doors of all your upper shelves and paint the back of the cabinets to match the room’s decor. However, if you want to go big, you can have an entire wall from top to bottom dedicated to open shelves. You can add some lighting on the shelves for decoration and only display beautiful stuff on them.

Large kitchen mat

It seems that every room has a beautiful mat except the kitchen. Well, placing large kitchen mats strategically can really improve how your kitchen looks and feels.

The term used is layering and kitchens need to be layered too. One of the best ways to place a mat is under the small breakfast table and chairs while the rest of the kitchen is left bare. You can also do the mat in front of the focal point or at the entrance but it’s much better under the table.

Removing clutter

Few things look worse like an over clutters kitchen with dishes all over and other things everywhere. Removing clutter should be the basic décor task so you can have available countertops, free walkway, and free-flowing air. You can have more storage built to hide all that stuff or you can get rid of most of the things you don’t need. Try to have chairs that slide beneath the table so you have free space on the floor and also on top.

Decorating a kitchen is not a complicated thing. With just a few changes here and there using paint, a mat, and some flowers, you can create a haven for yourself.
