How to decorate your kitchen this Christmas, whilst staying on trend
1. Add some festive greenery
Bringing the outside in fits in perfectly with the Christmas theme and will likely boost the mood of anyone who steps into the room.
A large centrepiece stone vase on your kitchen island filled with a mass of green winter foliage, white berries, and eucalyptus leaves is perfect for this. And if you don’t have a kitchen island, then an open spot on your worktops or around the room can work just as well.
2. Decorate your open shelves
Making the most of open shelves (should you have them) can really make a kitchen feel festive! Try a blended aesthetic offered by garlands of faux-eucalyptus, frosted pinecones, and white berries, with your shelves bookended by miniature lit Christmas trees and Nordic houses.
Of course, you can introduce any colour scheme you want into your decorations, and the way you decorate your shelves should fit with your personal taste
3. Change your rugs and cushions
It’s not only your work surfaces that can be decorated this Christmas – why not try and change any cushions, rugs, and sofas you have in and around your kitchen too.
Red and white are the classic colours of winter, so why choose anything else? Change your rugs out for festively suitable alternatives and replace the covers on your cushions with those offering a seasonal blend.
4. Don’t forget the table decorations
Table decorations are almost as important as the Christmas tree itself, so try mixing oranges decorated with cloves with recycled baubles inside a Christmas-styled ball. You get a colourful display that can easily be moved when needed. And for an added touch, why not throw in some decorative figs?
5. Make your lights festive
Kitchen lights can already make your home feel warm and welcoming to gu ests, which is exactly what you want at Christmas time, so don’t forget to include them in your decorating plan.
Try adding a couple of faux-mistletoe sprigs and white berries to any hanging lights in your kitchen. And if you’re lights are built into the roof, then why not try these sprigs to the handles of your wall cabinets or the structs of your racks and shelving units?
