5 Steps To A Well-Styled Kitchen

Is a new kitchen on your wish list? Well, we are here to tell you our secret to a new kitchen without the price tag of a remodel: STYLING. Having well-styled countertops can make a big impression and change the look of a kitchen. Get ready to learn how to style your way to a new kitchen in 5 steps!

STEP 1: Gather Essentials

First, clear off your countertops. Too much “stuff” on the counter can make a kitchen feel claustrophobic. Next, gather all countertop necessities (utensils, cookbooks, etc.) and separate them into a few different groups. Spread out these groupings along the countertops and island. Now, gather all the small, loose items in the groupings into either a serving tray, bowl, cake stand, or basket. Doing this will keep everything organized and clutter-free.


We are loving these options to gather groups:




STEP 2: Storage Upgrade

If you like to store everyday items (sugar, oats, rice, etc.) on the counter, give your storage containers a makeover. Clear containers will show off the unique textures of the food but stay away from clear if you want to hide the food and have a matching look.

STEP 3: Pretty Basics

Think about all the little things you use daily in the kitchen and look for a prettier version of it. Soaps, cooking oils, measuring cups and salt and pepper shakers are just some ideas of items that could use a little upgrade. Think of these items as decor when shopping because they will constantly be on display. Dish and hand towels are also a great spot to add a little color and personality to the kitchen.

STEP 4: Add Texture

Every room needs some warmth and texture and the kitchen is no exception. Use a variety of different materials in your styling to create contrast. If you have light cabinets, wood accents create a beautiful contrast. If you have stained wood cabinets, stone accents will create that same contrast. These textured accents could be your cutting boards, trays, vases, platters, baskets and even cooking utensils.

STEP 5: Something Fresh

Always finish your styling off with fresh flowers, herbs, greenery stems or even food. Adding something fresh will add dimension and life to the kitchen. This could be potted herbs by the sink, large vase with greenery stems on the island, bowl of fruit or a cake stand with a beautiful treat.
