6 Ways to style your kitchen

With the Kitchen being the heart of the home, especially now days with many open-plan living, Kitchens take centre stage. It makes sense to pay attention to the styling of the kitchen, with all the time spent cooking and entertaining.

With just a few styling tricks, you can style your kitchen.

 1. Layered arrangement  The ‘go-to’ styling tip in the kitchen is to create a layered arrangement resting up against a wall or splashback.   Place a selection of chopping boards, salt and pepper grinders along with canisters or small jars. This creates a focal point but instantly adds style to your kitchen. While adding items think about adding different sizes, textures and colour, creating contrast.

 2. Fresh Flowers  I am a sucker for fresh flowers and find the perfect place to display them is on the kitchen bench. A high traffic area, and a place you can appreciate them the most.   Flowers can be expensive, by opting for Native flowers will last twice as long as other flowers.

 3. Sink styling  Most of us will have dish soap or hand soap next to the kitchen sink — why not turn this area of the kitchen into a stylish arrangement with a few easy steps.  Start with a tray, look for soap products in beautiful packaging or place them in ceramic soap pumps. Add interest with an indoor plant and/or candle, and you can also add texture with an item such as a natural bristle brush, like a pot scrubber.

 4. Canister with utensils  A functional and stylish tip we love is to place a canister or jug of utensils next to the stove.  To keep this looking stylish, stick to uniform utensils, such as only timber and stainless steel   This canister could be a standalone piece or incorporated into the larger layered arrangement mentioned above.

 5. Fresh produce  Wherever possible, we look to add ‘life’ to rooms. Fresh fruit or vegetables in a beautiful fruit bowel create a stunning focal point on kitchen islands.  You can place the bowl next to your vase of fresh flowers or create two separate arrangements in the space.

 6. Bookshelf   Nowadays it’s increasingly common for people to have open wall shelves or a small bookshelf incorporated in their kitchen design. Place recipe books, beautiful ceramic pieces such as oil bottles or sugar bowls, art print, cake stand, teapot, salt and pepper grinders, or other items that relate to the kitchen.
