In our opinion, the best kitchens are those that look like the homeowners actually cook! Whether your kitchen is dated, classic, modern, or trendy, styling adds much-appreciated warmth and personality. Nothing beats having friends and family gather in the kitchen to chat and eat, so make it inviting!

We have developed 8 simple ingredients for a well-styled kitchen:

1


Create groupings on your counters to avoid clutter everywhere. This can be achieved by corralling similar items and using trays.

2


Incorporate jars and canisters for additional storage. We use these to store everything from flour and sugar to making snacks more easily accessible.

3


Use natural wood tones with cutting boards and bowls to add warmth and character. Whenever we see a good bread board, we pick it up! They look great layered and leaned against the backsplash.

4


Always put a crock for spoons by the stove – it’s practical and looks great too!

5


Whether you have glass front cabinets or open shelves, stack plates and line your glasses in rows.

6


Add a rug by the sink. Antique rugs are our favorite look in the kitchen.

Use fruit, potted plants and fresh cut flowers to add color and life.
