Kitchens are one of the most used and visited rooms within our homes, with everyone in our households spending plenty of time in our cooking spaces day in and day out. We use our kitchens to cook, make memories, bake, laugh, drink, and relax – meaning that our kitchens should look beautiful and fit our style perfectly. Kitchen decor can be hard to master, with so many styles of decor out there to choose from. There is a kitchen decor style for every household, with some preferring minimalistic, clean, modern contemporary styles and some quirky, colourful, and mix-and-match styles.

We’ve put together a list of tips that we feel could help you make your kitchen your own, whilst considering all aspects of your kitchen decor.

Play With Colours and Patterns

Choosing a colour scheme for your kitchen can be tricky. There are so many colour schemes to choose from – simple monochrome, neutral sandy and bright and patterned contrasting shades. We recommend choosing a colour scheme that fits in with your personal style and matches the rest of your home interior. By choosing cohesive colours, your kitchen will look perfectly put together and designed. Consider all aspects of your kitchens – including your bowls, pots and pans, kettle, utensils, and kitchen towels.

If minimalism isn’t really your style, why not add some pattern? There is nothing wrong with adding some patterns and uniqueness to your kitchen – if you want to spruce things up. Perhaps throw in some funky patterned towels, some contrasting coloured utensils, or some colourful bowls to give your kitchen some quirkiness and character. Your kitchen is your space and should reflect you and your personality perfectly so have fun with it and do what feels right. 

Add Interesting Lighting

To give your kitchen a classy and beautiful feel, add some interesting lighting features. You might think there aren’t any options when it comes to switching up the lighting in your kitchen – but this could not be further from the truth. Changing up the lighting set up in your kitchen can completely transform the space and give it a new feel. There are so many types of lighting to choose from, to suit small, big, dark, and light spaces perfectly.

You can install overhead lighting so that your worktops and surfaces are lit up at all times and give your room a contemporary feel. Add some spotlights to have your kitchen glowing beautifully in the evening. Or add some standing lamps to give your kitchen a unique and quirky feel. Lighting can change the look of your kitchen completely and is something that we often overlook when it comes to kitchens, so definitely consider it when designing your new kitchen.


Shelving is the perfect storage solution for your kitchen – adding both style and practicality to the space. You can add several shelves to your kitchen, perfect for storing your pots, pans, bowls, mugs, chopping boards, and other cooking utensils. They provide us with a fantastic form of storage and a way to clear our countertops, whilst also looking beautiful. 

You can also accessorise your shelving – by adding in some photo frames, books, ornaments, plants, and more to give your kitchen some character and a homely, lived-in feel. Make sure to not let your shelves get too cluttered though, to keep them clean and simple, and not messy. 

Cosy Rugs

As Winter creeps up on us, we want our homes to feel super warm, cosy, and inviting – so why not add a cosy rug to your kitchen space? Rugs are the ideal addition to our kitchens during the colder months and are amazing as they can be removed from your kitchen if you feel like they no longer fit or are needed. 

A rug is a fantastic way to fill your open floor space, make a statement and inject some warmth into your kitchen, whilst also giving it that welcoming, family feel that can really make a kitchen. You can match your rug to your kitchen style, or choose a contrasting coloured or patterned rug for a pop of colour. A rug will also add a new texture and dimension to your kitchen, and give it an interesting and unique feel. 


Accessories give our kitchen the character that it needs, and can truly complete your home decor. We all love an accessory, and they are perfect for adding some of your personality into your kitchen and filling it with love. You can accessorise your kitchen space with plants and foliage, photo frames, books, holiday treasures and much more to have it feeling cosy and lived-in. Ready to start decorating your kitchen?
