Kitchen design is a multistep process that includes making decisions about practical things like layout, storage, and appliances, but it’s equally important to focus on choosing finishes, decor, and accessories that will make this utilitarian space feel warm and personal. These kitchen decor ideas in a range of styles, sizes, and budgets will help inspire you to make everyone’s favorite hang-out space as inviting as any other room in the house.
For renters or those who like to change up their decor with minimal effort and investment, a peel-and-stick wallpaper backsplash like this neutral patterned wallpaper from Tempaper & Co. can change the look of your kitchen in a flash.
Display Everyday Objects
In this warm, rustic English country kitchen from Lobster and Swan, everyday objects from coffee pots to glass pitchers and jars filled with tea and herbs are displayed on reclaimed wood shelving, keeping everything visible and accessible while doubling as decor.
Decorate With Food
In this kitchen from Velinda Hellen for Emily Henderson Design, one end of the kitchen island is lined with shelving filled with identical jars of dry goods to create an accessible mini pantry that doubles as edible decor.
Choose Warm Earth Tones
In an era of kitchen decor still dominated by neutrals, a colorful kitchen is a memorable kitchen that will stand out from the crowd. This kitchen from House of G Designs has a warm and sunny palette of earth tones that includes a salmon orange retro fridge from Big Chill that gives it an energizing and inviting feel.
