Most of us go all out on decorating the living room during Christmas time, to the point that other rooms tend to get left neglected…
It is fair to say that we spend just as much time, if not more, in the kitchen during the holy season as we do in the living room entertaining guests…
That is why we have come up with a few simple and inexpensive tips on making the kitchen feel a little bit more included this Christmas!
A smaller synthetic Christmas tree for the kitchen, this is a very simple tip yet quite effective. The Christmas tree is the center piece and one of the most iconic decorations, but adding a smaller less dramatic tree to the kitchen, instantly gives it a more festive and fun vibe.
Now, if you have a more traditional style kitchen, we recommend adding accents of red, green and gold where possible as these are the traditional colours associated with Christmas.. this could be cushion covers on chairs or stools around the kitchen, little red bows along the frame of the kitchen window and making a festive fruit bowl of apples and other red coloured fruits, the possibilities are endless but these small hints of colour will make a big impact!
Wreaths… These are very bold and scream Christmas – in the best way – they come in so many different sizes and styles and if you are really crafty you can even make your own! They look great on the kitchen cabinet fronts or hanging from the curtain pole in front of the kitchen window so they can be viewed from outside as well as in.
If you have shelving or a display unit in the kitchen, then you can really go to town on it.. of course in the most tasteful way possible as too much decor can definitely become overwhelming. Depending on the style and colour of your kitchen you can find small ornaments such as little reindeer’s or light up letters that spell out things like ‘Snow’ which are associated with Christmas and it can be beautifully done…
Trust us, your friends and family will definitely notice the detail and ambiance it creates, which makes it all magical and worth it!
We hope you found this useful, and it’s a big MERRY CHRISTMAS from MY Kitchen!
