Brightening your Kitchen for Spring
It’s always so refreshing when warmer weather arrives in the spring and you can start opening your windows again. From checkered prints to fresh flowers, you can make your kitchen bright and airy as the seasons change by mimicking some of the colors you see outside. Here are some easy, inexpensive kitchen styles for spring you should try out.
Add a Fresh Layer of Paint
Is there one particularly bland wall in your kitchen? Are you ready to add some pizzazz to your white cabinets? Break out the paint and add a pop of color in just the right places. If you have glass cabinet doors, painting the interior of your cabinets is a subtle way to add color and offset the white dishes you store inside.
Install a New Backsplash
Spring is the perfect time to upgrade your kitchen. If you’re dying to put in a new backsplash, don’t wait any longer! Lime green subway tiles, a fresh checkered pattern or brightly colored mosaic tiles are all great kitchen styles for spring, but they’re also the ideal way to brighten up the room all year round.
Bring in Colorful Accessories
If you’re more interested in making a temporary change, you can also add color by bringing the right accessories into the kitchen. Bar stools with vivid upholstery, bright-colored pottery on floating shelves and striped pillar candles on the counter add the perfect springtime feel to the room.
Set Out Fresh Flowers
Nothing says spring like a vase full of freshly cut tulips, lilacs or daisies from the garden. Choose a single type of flower or create your own artistic arrangements to add beauty and color to your kitchen.
Display Fresh Fruit
Spring signals fresh life in the garden – not just in the form of flowers, but fruits as well. Decorate your counter or table with a bowl full of lemons, peaches, apples, pears, bananas or other fruit. This adds a decorative element to your kitchen, but it also serves as a healthful eating reminder. Feel free to use the fruit in your cooking or as a quick and healthy afternoon snack.
Hang New Window Coverings
Whether your kitchen windows are currently sporting thick wintertime drapes or they’re completely bare, liven up your windows with a valence sporting springtime colors. From pastel stripes to floral patterns to your favorite shade of green, you’ll be surprised what a difference new kitchen window coverings can make.
Incorporate Spring-Themed Linens
If you have a kitchen table or breakfast nook, brighten it up with a spring-themed tablecloth, runner or placemats. From a classy floral print to childlike bunnies and chicks, the style is up to you! Matching hand towels, wash clothes and pot holders complete the look.
With so many kitchen styles for spring to choose from, you can customize the exact look you want. Most of these ideas are inexpensive and easy to incorporate yourself.
