Making room for both function and decor on your kitchen countertops is tricky. Appliances you use every day usually take up prime real estate over decorative objects. But that doesn't mean you need to skimp on stylish things guaranteed to brighten up your cooking space and gathering place. Without leaning toward clutter, you can enhance the look with these stylish tips and even create space for function.
Cutting Boards Make a Statement
You are probably using a cutting board every day for meal prep. Why not have them accessible to use and display them? Showcase a variety of different types and shapes, including wood and marble and lean them against your backsplash.
Most kitchens have dish soap and hand soap at the sink, so you may as well keep them in pretty bottles. Choose vessels that coordinate with your décor and kitchen vibe. This is a way to keep your sink area looking modern and clean.
What Pretty Appliances You Have
If storage is an issue, and you must keep some small appliances on the counter, be sure to keep them stylish and pretty. Think about a retro-inspired toaster with coordinating coffee maker.
An easy way to bring smart style to your kitchen counter is to create a coffee station. Not only is a coffee station functional, but it also adds a little “coffee shop vibe” to your home. Display some mugs, a canister of coffee and some pretty spoons near your coffee maker. Your mornings just got a whole lot better.
Live Plants are Always a Good Idea
Adding some greenery and plants not only adds a splash of color, but you can have your herbs handy for your favorite recipes! Why not display herb plants that will come in handy when you’re cooking up your favorite batch of Bolognese or chili. Or opt for some color with a flowering plant or orchid.
Give your kitchen some love! After all, it’s the most used room in your home. For more information on the finest homes in the Palm Beaches, contact a Tauber Real Estate Services specialist today at 561-626-4633.
