If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen you'll really enjoy being in that room once you've implemented the decorating ideas found within this article. We spend a lot of time in our kitchens cooking for our family and friends. It's important that we feel good about being in this room. Fabrics play a huge role in your kitchen decorating plan. Once you have a theme picked out for your kitchen there are multiple fabric choices to be made to coordinate with that theme. Your window treatments are a great place to begin. There are several different types of window treatments to choose from. Just a few of those choices would be café curtains, valance or maybe long curtains. A few other fabric choices to be made in your kitchen would be linens or towels, potholders, appliance covers, placemats and table cloths.
Canisters can be found in most people's kitchens and can be found in just about any theme you could dream up. They come in all shapes and sizes and are easily added to your décor. Collections are a great way to decorate your kitchen. There are many different things that people find an interest in and have previously acquired a number of items. If you already have a collection you can simply get them out and arrange them in one area of different areas of your kitchen.
If you haven't yet found an interest in anything in particular, some of the most collected items that fit with a kitchen décor are cookie jars, bottles, colanders, clocks and silverware. A great way to display a collection of cookie jars is to place them on top of your cabinets. They are not taking up any usable space when you put them there, yet they are in an area where all who enter can see. Clocks are also a favorite for people who have collections for their kitchen. Place all your clocks on a single wall to create an accent wall.
Colanders or strainers can make a beautiful display in your kitchen. You can hang them on an accent wall in a random pattern or you could hang them from a pot rack over your island. Bottles are another item that people enjoy collecting. Since most things are made from plastic in this day and age, they are definitely items that most people can't just go out and purchase in your local discount store.
Bottles can be displayed in a window sill, allowing the sun to shine through and cast beautiful rays of light in your kitchen. They can be placed on the top of your cabinets or placed on a shelf. You could also built or purchase a shadow box to display your collection of bottles in. You may have inherited a collection of silver utensils from your great grandmother, but you don't want to use them. You can decorate with them by bending them and attaching them to a board. This can be used to hang your keys on.
Crocks are a great collection to have. The crocks are not only beautiful, but can be turned into usable items. You might place one next to your door to put umbrellas in. You might use one to place kitchen utensils; spatulas and spoons in. You could even use them to place the mail in when you bring it in from the mailbox. So, now that you've learned about several options for decorating your kitchen you can begin the transformation of a primitive country, warm and inviting kitchen in your home!
