4 Easy Kitchen Decorating Ideas

If you've seen those kitchen improvement shows and wished you can do the same for your kitchen, what are you waiting for? With so many do-it-yourself tools and tips you can use these days, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to come up with kitchen decorating ideas that are easy to do. Here are some you can try:

1. Change your kitchen walls

Decorating your kitchen is as easy as changing the way your walls look, either by using new paint or wallpaper. Paint and wallpaper create a whole new ambience easily, allowing you a great start on your kitchen decorating plans. A newly painted or 'papered wall can provide you with a great backdrop and inspiration. Use borders for accents or added interest to break the monotony.

2. Use a kitchen island

If your kitchen space allows it, add a kitchen island. You can use the added working area for food preparation or for small gatherings. A kitchen island can also help loosen up the traffic in your kitchen, allowing you to work on your braised pork while someone washes the dishes behind you on the sink.

If your kitchen area is smaller, you can remedy the limited space by using a kitchen cart. This usually comes with wheels so it's easy to move around. It also has the necessary hooks, shelves and drawers that are perfect for your storage needs.

3. Add curtains

A well-treated kitchen window will do a lot in changing the way your kitchen looks. By simply adding a curtain or replacing an old one, you can update your kitchen with minimal effort. Choose lively prints or lines that work well with your new paint or choose a repetitive pattern prevalent in the room, such as fruits or vegetables, and use those for the curtains. This will help coordinate your design.

4. Use kitchen organizers

Kitchen organizers are a great way of decorating your kitchen while at the same time, providing you with more space for storage. Use movable storage to maximize space and still allow you to keep your silverware and plates safe and out of the way or install hooks and overhead racks from which to hang towels, utensils and pots from.

Choose organizers in colors and styles that reflect the kind of personality your kitchen has. Go for clean, laminated wood organizers to blend well with your kitchen's varnished wood or pick stainless steel racks to work well with the modern look you want to achieve.

Do you think the Apple Kitchen Decor theme is outdated? How about the Italian Theme?

I am moving and was thinking about getting rid of some things.
I have had this decor for a while but I still kinda like it. I like the theme ideas but I am not up to date as far as home decor.
What are some new kitchen theme ideas?

I agree there are no right and wrong answers when it comes to choosing a theme and what is new and up-to-the-minute today will be outdated before you change your kitchen so you may as well go with what you love.

My favorite idea for choosing a theme is to start with the kitchen curtains. Choose a fabric you love and then it will give you a starting point for your theme and your room color scheme.

If you are decorating your kitchen to sell your home however before you move I would keep things as plain and simple as possible, Plain curtains or blinds, plain walls and not too much clutter. You want the new owners to be able to see that they can stamp their own personality on your home and not be swamped by yours.
