Update your Kitchen with these 9 Affordable Decorating Ideas

Posted by Tori Radday on Aug 8th 2017

Hello! The kitchen is often one of the rooms in our homes that we spend the most time in from preparing meals to entertaining guests to grabbing a mid-day snack. Since we spend so much time in our kitchens, it's important to focus on making the kitchen a comfortable space that brings you joy. Today we've rounded up nine decorating tips for your kitchen that are easy as well as affordable. Try out your favorite and we're sure that you'll be pleasantly surprised by how a small update can make a major style impact in your kitchen.

1. Bring your kitchen to life with a few houseplants. You'll love the vitality that houseplants breathe into your kitchen space. Shop our "Triple Galvanized Bucket Hanging Planter" to bring this inspiration to life in your own kitchen. Shop any local garden or plant shop for a few houseplants.

2. Make your kitchen feel less utilitarian and more stylish with eye-catching copper accents. Yes, your kitchen may be a work space for meal prep and washing dishes but that doesn't mean that its design has to be boring! Incorporate trendy decorative accents to make it feel more like your home and less like just a work space. Incorporate this idea into your space with our "Hammered Copper Kitchen Utensils Caddy" and "Copper Sponge Caddy Holder." Both pieces are functional as well as visually charming.

3. Use pops of coastal blue to bring soothing relaxation into your kitchen. Ocean blue hues possess the power to bring peace and calm to any space. Things can get pretty hectic in the kitchen so incorporating coastal colors into the space is a good idea. You don't have to live by the seashore to appreciate the soothing nature of these seaside colors. Use our "Ocean Blue and Sea Green Round Glass Bottles" or our "Blue Glass Bottles Sealife Stoppers Set of 3" to mimic this inspiration.

4. Use wire baskets to update your kitchen with rustic flair. Natural textures, ample storage and oversize baskets and pots create a calming countryside mood in this kitchen. Shop our "Tall Back Wire Metal Basket" and "Wire Round Storage Nesting Baskets With Handles Set of 3."

5. If you have open shelving or open cabinets, update your dishware for a new look in your kitchen. Check out our "Coffee Tea and Sugar White Enameled Kitchen Canister Set of Three" and "Rooster and Hen Embossed Milk Jug Salt and Pepper Shakers" to try out this tip.

6. Add joy to your kitchen with vibrant pops of color. Create colorful interest in your kitchen with our "Pretty in Pink Flamingos Salt and Pepper Shakers Set" and "Pretty in Pink Flamingo Utensil Crock Kitchen Counter."

7. Add warmth and charm to your kitchen with a "more is more" approach. We love all of the colors, textures and variety of decorative objects in this kitchen. Copy the sense of cozy chic charm by filling your kitchen with floral dish towels and linens. We suggest shopping our "Pink Plumeria and Hibiscus in Paradise Cotton Kitchen Dish Towel" and "Hydrangea Blooms Flour Sack Kitchen Dish Towels Set of 2."

8. Perk up the style and joy of your space with vibrant yellow accents. Shop our "Sunny Yellow Lemons Braided Round Placemats Set of 4."

9. Enhance the classic charm of your kitchen with a cool "EAT" wall sign. You'll love the visual interest that it adds to any space. Shop our "Eat Tin Letters and Slatted Wood Wall Decor Kitchen Dining Plaque" or our "Eat Letters Routed Wood Cutting Boards Sign Set."
