Many people believe that a designing your kitchen does not require decorating. Your appliances, cabinetry and countertops are all that is required.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  You spend a great deal of time in the kitchen preparing food, eating and entertaining friends.  This room should reflect your decorating tastes just as much, if not more, than other rooms in your home. Here are some ideas to design your kitchen like a pro!

Most people will add a window treatment and matching towels and consider the decorating job done.  But take a look around.  You will most likely need furniture of some sort in the form of stools or a table and chairs.

Hillsdale Bar StoolBar stools come in just about any style you can imagine from the very contemporary to the more traditional. With several height options—chair height of roughly 18 “, counter height of 24” and bar height of 30” you can find a stool that meets your requirements.

Bakers Rack Stainless Steel TopStorage is always an issue in kitchens.  There never seems to be enough room for all the “gadgets” we need.  If you have the space, adding a bakers rack is a nice way to openly display and store those items you use often. Try a  Bakers Rack for your kitchen design offers not only shelving and wine glass storage but also has a butcher block look top for extra chopping space. This is the perfect solution if space is an issue.  Home Styles a top brand of bakers racks offers a solid wood bakers rack with a stainless steel top for additional prep space.  The white wood is just the right complement to a cottage style kitchen.

Home Styles Kitchen CartMany of us long for an island in our kitchen but do not have the space or the budget to add cart is a nice alternative.  These carts supply the additional space for storage and preparation and can be moved around the room. You find that kitchen carts come in any size from a fully self-contained unit to a small cart that takes up little space.

Lobster Kitchen DecorWall décor will add the final touch to any kitchen decorating project. Choosing wall art that complements the design or theme of your kitchen is easy.  If you have a Tuscan kitchen filled with warm earth tones and rustic finishes, look for prints or wall décor that depicts the making or enjoying of wine. Linon Vetro offers several wine bottle prints.  The Lazy Lobsterwall décor by Infinity Instruments adds a touch of whimsy to any kitchen.

Rooster Wall ClockEvery kitchen needs a clock.  It is often difficult to read the numbers on the tiny clocks found on the stove or microwave.  When choosing a clock for your kitchen, keep your decor in mind.  A kitchen full of roosters needs the Chanticleer Wall Clock by Infinity Instruments.  (chanticleer means rooster in French).  This is also a good choice for any Mediterranean style kitchen.  If you live in an older home and have what you lovingly refer to as a “retro’ kitchen, spice it up with the Red Round Wall Clock.

A kitchen can be a fun room to decorate.  It is inexpensive to add wall art and interesting pieces of furniture. So take a look around and design your kitchen and see if it needs some sprucing up.
