Accessorizing your countertops is the perfect way to give personality to your kitchen. You can bring color and life by adding accessories that match your design aesthetic. Whether you prefer a warm and subdued interior or a bright and crisp feel- you can achieve this by adding accessories to your countertops. While decorating your kitchen, choose colors that resemble the mood you wish to set. Colors are the best way to help you achieve the feel and look you are looking for. For example, red stimulates and energizes while blue feels calm and peaceful. Yellow helps to rejuvenate and energize and green restores tranquility. Make sure you choose colors that help to create the mood you want to feel when entering your kitchen.
There are a number of ways and objects to use to accessorize your countertops. Flowers and plants are a great way to add beauty and life to your kitchen. You may choose bright flowers for a pop, or a plant or succulent for a more natural, calming look. To add sentiment to your space, choose a favorite decoration or family heirloom to build around.
When ornamenting your countertops, keep in mind the old adage that “less is more.” The true beauty of your countertop should be most noticeable and apparent. Do not cover up your countertop’s true, natural beauty. Choose 2-4 objects to set on your countertop space. In order to de-clutter countertop space, place all household appliances in kitchen cabinets.
Most importantly- have fun! Accessorizing your kitchen countertops will allow you to have a more personal and appealing space.
