First of all: be brave and don’t be afraid to experiment! When it comes to kitchen decoration, we have put together a few tips for you that will help you become a decorator of your own home with a sense of style, but personal taste and creativity always decide. It is important that you like the decoration and that you feel comfortable in the kitchen. And the best thing about decorating: Everything can be changed again.
Decorate in color worlds
Colorful accessories can be used to set accents in the kitchen decoration. Make sure to create color compositions and, instead of mixing too many different colors, prefer to use the basic tones of the kitchen space. The colors of the decorative objects should harmonize with each other and can be set in scene with bright accents: colorful chairs, tea towels or colorful kitchen helpers conjure up the color in the kitchen decoration.
Play with contrasts
Striking accents can be set with the play of contrasts by combining different colors, shapes, materials, and patterns. A striking wall color puts kitchen furniture and accessories in the spotlight, the mix of decorative objects made of different materials – such as wood, stone, and metal – creates exciting accents. When combining patterns, the following rule of thumb applies: Either mix the same patterns, eg floral patterns in different colors, or combine different patterns in the same color scheme.
Use personal items and incorporate them into the decoration: photos, a holiday souvenir, or a picture you have painted often bring back fond memories. The best way to integrate personal things is to find colors or materials in the surrounding decorative elements.
DIY – do it yourself
Simply design and make your own decoration! Because self-made decoration makes the furnishings appear original and individual. For seasonal decoration, natural materials can often be found in nature, the appropriate handicraft instructions are available on the Internet: in DIY blogs or as inspiration on e.g. Pinterest.
Art on the wall can be made wonderfully yourself: Put photos, postcards, graphics together in the same picture frame and stage memories like a picture wall.
Variety creates tension, and this also applies to the furnishing and decoration of the kitchen. New glasses, a pretty table runner, self-sewn seat cushions table mats, or fresh wall paint – new decorative elements bring fun and revitalize the kitchen.
If you have too much decoration in the kitchen, temporarily put some of it aside and simply redecorate after a few months. In this way, you create new tension over and over again and avoid the kitchen looking too cluttered.
Group decoration and avoid symmetry
Group accessories into an arrangement: whether vases, candles, or recipe books – decoration always looks more beautiful in groups than alone. Asymmetry and odd constellations appear natural and as if arranged by chance in teams of three or five.
Don’t buy everything at once
Take your time decorating! If you have decided to buy new decorations, it is advisable not to buy everything at once. The selection Choosing new properties with thought and care takes time. Because if you buy everything at once, you take the opportunity to reconsider your decisions. Because often new ideas arise when setting up and decorating yourself.
Showcase with kitchen shelves
Shelves loosen up a kitchen and offer space for beautiful and decorative items. However, you should refrain from filling kitchen shelves with decoration. It looks nicer when you choose a center point. The decoration professional combines different materials, sizes, and colors and tries to find a recurring theme that can be found subtly elsewhere.
Playing with size and perspective
Refrain from setting individual focal points in the decoration, this often looks overloaded. It is better to combine decorative objects in different sizes into arrangements and play with perspective: put small flowers or delicate branches in large vases in the limelight. Cover larger decorative elements and bring smaller ones to the fore. This creates depth and makes the arrangement appear harmonious.
