6 Simple Ways to Add Style to Your Kitchen

We all agree that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Even if you're not an avid chef, you still spend lots of time in there. It also always seems to be the place guests and family members like to congregate. When my husband and I moved into our first apartment, the kitchen was teeny tiny. But lo and behold, our first party came around and everyone gathered in and around that little space. Ever since then, I've understood how popular that room is. And that's more of a reason to make sure it's a stylish, functional space. 

 

Whenever I style a kitchen, there are a few pieces and accessories that I always use. Below is a list of my favorite styling items in the kitchen.

1. Art

Art can bring sophistication to your kitchen. And if your lacking color or texture, use art to bring those elements in.

2. Trays

You can use trays a number of ways. They are great for displaying oils, candles, bottles, anything that looks messy on its own.

3. White Dishware and Ceramics

Even if they don't match, stack white on white for an on-trend look.

4. Coffee Station

We're talking the whole thing! Assign a small portion of your countertop to create an industrial coffee station, complete with coffee cups, a pour-over and even a coffee maker.

5. Wooden Cutting Boards

Stack several against your backsplash and you'll look like an educated chef.

6. Plants

They bring immediate style and color to your kitchen. You can either place them on the counter or hang them above.

 

​Just remember, you can't go wrong with white ceramics, wooden pieces, and green plants. You also can't go wrong with thinking outside of the box. Unexpected pieces can create a beautiful look. Even if you don't cook, you can create a cool kitchen that is chef-worthy!
