a spacious bright white kitchen with gold fixtures and blue accents

If you’re looking around at your kitchen and just feel blah, you’re not alone. Though a remodel may be in your future plans, there are some simpler things that can be done now to help combat the blah feeling. Switch up the scenery and kitchen decor a bit, and we can guarantee that you’ll start to feel better. Below, you’ll find some of the simple things that we do within our own kitchens to keep things fresh and inviting.

Bar and Counter Stools
Bar and counter stools are what complete your kitchen’s look. Not only do they add character, but they are also very functional. Is your island where your family and friends linger? Is it the entertaining hub of your home? Is it where most meals are had? If you answered yes to any of these questions, bar or counter stools are a must. If you want more information on finding the perfect height stool, figuring out how many you need, or a list of our favorites, read our Perfect Bar Stool blog.

Though changing up your lighting is a larger project than changing out your counter stools, it can make a huge difference. Not only can it affect how bright your space is, but it can also transform the mood your room presents. Are you going for more modern and abstract or classic and traditional? With so many options to choose from, it can feel overwhelming. Fear not friends! Our lighting guide will help you explore the world of lighting.

Time to elevate your kitchen storage pieces! Though these pieces seem minuscule in the grand scheme of things, they’re the details that make a kitchen come together. It’s easy to find beautiful bread boxes, crocks, and jars. Pretty storage containers also give you the chance to add different textures in. Maybe you’ll opt for a marble utensil holder? Or a metal bread box?

Maybe you feel like your space needs more texture, color, or pattern? If that’s the case, say hello to rugs! While some may think this idea is strange, we’re here to set the story straight. Runners are the perfect accent piece to use between an island and the surrounding cabinetry. They help add interest and depth, while also being pleasing to the eye. Plus, there are endless choices allowing you more design freedom!

All In The Details
We’ve said it once (okay, a million times), and we’ll say it again. It’s all about the details! When we say details, we mean the too often overlooked pieces of your kitchen. Hand towels, soap, fruit bowls, cutting boards, and so much more. Luckily, these are also the items that will cost next to nothing to replace. You may think that these items don’t make a big difference, but we promise you that your space will continue to come together. Never underestimate the power of the small and mighty!
