Decorating Ideas for Your Newly Renovated Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home, the place where memories are made. It’s where you cook, chat with friends and family, and share laughs and tears – a warm, welcoming place. With this in mind, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite tips for decorating your newly renovated kitchen.

1. Paint the Walls a Fun Color

Paint is one of the easiest ways to make your kitchen more significant, and a bold color adds character. Choose the perfect shade for your space by matching it to one of the colors from your cabinets or flooring, or choose something unexpected that you wouldn’t think would work – it just might!

2. Personalize Your Space

No rule says your kitchen must be white! If you are open to using colors other than white, you can have a lot of fun with different colors, textures, and patterns. Remember, you don’t always have to stick with one pattern. Mix it up! For example, tile the backsplash and paint the cabinets. Sometimes mixing patterns adds interest to a space.

3. Add a Fireplace

While you may have painted your kitchen a fun color to add life to it, if the only thing that adds interest to your space is the fireplace, you may want to rethink your idea. A fireplace can be a great focal point, but not if all it does is distract from the rest of your kitchen. If you’re looking for an alternative way to make your bright space seem warmer and cozy, try putting some other types of decor on display.

4. Add a Piece of Art

Think outside of the box when it comes to art in your kitchen. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles, as you would do in any other room. If your kitchen lacks the high-end appliances of a classic kitchen, you may want to consider using artwork with a graphic, modern look. If your house is a more traditional style, try something with classic flair.

5. Switch Up Your Décor

It may be simple, but a lovely dining table is a great way to add flair to your open kitchen. If you don’t want to invest in a new table, try finding one at a garage sale or estate sale to add a piece of furniture with character and a story to your newly renovated space.

6. Think Vintage

We can’t say it enough – your kitchen is the heart of your home! So why not add a touch of old-fashioned charm to it? If you’re lucky enough to have one, spring for a vintage kitchen table or chair. You don’t have to spend big bucks on these; make sure you look at the piece that’s most likely to last.

7. Keep it Light

No kitchen has to be dark and scary. Try adding a bright, colorful light fixture instead of a pendant or sconce – you might find it a great conversation starter. You don’t have to go full-out on the light fixtures in your kitchen, as they typically only get used during the morning and evening hours. If you’re looking for options when it comes to lighting, take a look at some designs online or check out Pinterest for inspiration.
