How to Decorate Kitchen Counters
You’ve just finished building your dream kitchen with Trinity Custom Homes Georgia. As you step back to admire the new appliances and beautiful countertops, something strikes you as odd. What is it? Then it hits you–your new kitchen looks so empty. With bare countertops and empty walls, your new kitchen lacks the “lived in” look that gives kitchens their charm. How can you give your kitchen a warm, inviting feeling without telling your kids to come inside and make a mess?
Fortunately, with a few simple decorations, your countertops can go from sterile and empty to warm and cozy. Here’s a few suggestions on decorating your kitchen counters without breaking your budget:
Add Some Attractive Appliances
Typically, we keep our kitchen appliances tucked away in the cabinets or stowed under the counter. And in the past, the traditional appliances weren’t every attractive. Who would want a large blender or a metal toaster taking up space on their kitchen counter? But in today’s modern world, several manufacturers have developed sleek, stylish appliances that come in a wide range of colors and styles. It’s easy to find that perfect blender or coffee maker that suits your decor. And you’ll save time by having it right on the counter whenever you need it.
Stock Your Counter with Ingredients
Nothing looks more homey and inviting than old-fashioned canisters of sugar and flour, or glass jars of salt, sugar, pepper, and other spices. Stocking your counter with ingredients isn’t just convenient–it also doubles as an attractive decoration that’s likely to make your guests hungry. You can use simple canisters for an old-fashioned look, or invest in something more decorative. If you grow your own herbs, consider placing them in the windowsill to catch the sunlight and add greenery to your kitchen.
Add Fruit and Other Edible Treats
As children, we were always warned not to leave our food lying out on the countertop. But something clean and simple, like a basket of oranges or a bunch of bananas, is perfectly safe and makes an eye-catching decoration. For foods that require more protection, like cookies and pretzels, you can stash them in an attractive jar or canister. These edible decorations aren’t just appealing–they make it easy to grab a quick snack whenever you’re hungry.
