December 14, 2018

In many homes, the kitchen is where everyone tends to get together. No matter what is going on, eventually, everyone ends up in the kitchen. That might be why so many people focus on their kitchen when it comes to home design and decor. Most people have an idea of what they want their dream kitchen to look like.

Designing a Kitchen

When thinking of how to decorate a kitchen, the first thing to think about is the colours and set up of your current kitchen. Silestone worktops, a manufactured material made mostly of quartz natural crystals, are becoming very popular in kitchens because it is easy to have it fit in any kitchen. Silestone prices let someone have a high end look, at a reasonable price, that is easy to maintain. Since it comes in many colour options, Silestone is easy to fit into any style and decor.

Decorating a Kitchen Counter

There are many ways to decorate a kitchen counter that enhances the look of a dream kitchen, no matter your sense of style.

  • Cookbooks – Use cookbooks, displayed against the wall to create an appealing visual. It is both stylish and functional because it allows you to have the cookbooks close at hand.
  • Cutting Boards – Another functional way to decorate a kitchen counter is to use cutting boards. Cutting boards of different shapes, sizes and materials look lovely when placed up again the backsplash of a kitchen counter. Create visual interest by using a variety of cutting boards.
  • Plants – Having plants in your house offer many benefits. Plants create a light and refreshing space while cleaning the air. Use live plants, like herbs, on the countertops to add a splash of green to space.
  • Fresh Flowers – Fresh cut flowers and bouquets look beautiful on any countertop. Fresh flowers also give off a nice smell without a chemical or artificial smell. If you don’t have flowers in your yard to cut on a regular basis, then simply stop by a store, even a grocery store, to get a new bouquet each week.
  • Coffee Station – Many people are starting to show their love affair with coffee. Set up a coffee station on your countertops. Start with a pretty or unique tray. Add supplies like mugs, ground coffee, and a coffee marker. Add pretty spoons, a sugar container, and decorative napkins. This works easily as a tea station by switching the coffee pot for a teapot.
  • Pictures – A great way to add a warm and cosy feeling to your kitchens is to add pictures. Use pictures of family and friends in an assortment of sizes and shapes. This is a great way to add family pictures even if wall space is at a minimum.

If you are starting to think about decorating your dream kitchen, start with a beautiful workspace and then add creative touches like these in order to have a welcoming space.
