Kitchen ideas

Special month

We all know Christmas is a special time to spend with loved ones. But it is easy to forget paying attention to one of the most important rooms in your home – the kitchen! In this blog we explore some elements of your kitchen that you can spruce up for Christmas.

A time to celebrate

If you are looking to renovate or remodel your Kitchen, this can be an ideal time of year to look at your kitchen and begin to plan the best kitchen ideas.  If you are looking to create a Christmas feel in your existing Kitchens then some of the following ideas might help.

Festive feel

So, what are the elements you need to consider? Obviously, you are aiming to create a festive look but that can mean different things for different people – and of course, the look, size and mood of your kitchen.

Wreaths can work

While many of us add a gorgeous wreath to our front door, there is no reason why you shouldn’t add some to your kitchen. Hanging a circular garland from your kitchen door or wall will add instant Christmas cheer.

Small and discreet

Ornaments are a great kitchen idea to celebrate Christmas. They can be cute, small, and unobtrusive. Small trees, themed prints, wooden reindeer, candles and bowls of baubles can be dotted on worktops, shelves and islands to ensure the Christmas theme runs throughout the house.

Bigger space

If you have oodles of space in your kitchen, then consider if you want to add a Christmas tree to display some Christmas cheer at its best. Place it near the dining table to be admired at meal times and decorate it in colours that complement your kitchen.

At the table

If you’re eating around your kitchen table this Christmas, then go to town with the decorations. Opt for festive hues like a bold red that’s fun for all ages and works brilliantly with two on-trend kitchen colour schemes – navy and grey.

Mix up your colours

You have lovingly chosen your kitchen’s colour scheme when you designed it but don’t feel you must stay with traditional shades at Christmas. Take a few risks but also complement the space with decorations in colours that match your units, walls and appliances. These days, you can find not just baubles, but trees, stockings and even reindeer ornaments in every colour imaginable.

Fun and festive lighting

Twinkling fairy lights strewn over cabinets and open shelving are an instant Christmas pick me up and will create a festive atmosphere.

Kitchen Prep for the big day

Remember also to consider your storage options. Not everyone has large workspaces for preparation so are there some storage considerations you need to think about so you have enough space on the day?

Dressing up your Kitchen for Christmas can be a lot of fun. Whether you are redesigning your kitchen, building a new one or making the most of your current environment.
