With the holiday season upon us, it’s time to roll up your sleeves, get those boxes of Christmas decorations out of the attic and start decking your halls.
For many of us, this means adding festive décor in every nook and cranny of the house; both inside and outside. However, when it comes to decorating your home for Christmas, don’t forget to add that extra hint of festive flair to the most integral part of the house – your kitchen.
While your kitchen is primarily used to prep and cook meals, it’s also the hub of your home where you’re likely to spend a lot of your time, perhaps baking biscuits and Christmas meals; so try to make it merry!
At Saturn Interiors, we’ve created a list of Christmas decor ideas for your kitchen so that you can prepare it ahead of the festive season.
Let’s take a look!
1. Bring on Those Baubles
While every available space in the kitchen could be embellished with spruce and holly, the perfect spot to hang baubles is on those wreaths hanging from your cabinet handles and ceiling.
Just make sure you’re purchasing wipe-clean and moisture resistant decorations alongside faux foliage to prevent them from wilting in the heat.
2. Get the Wreath Indoors
There’s no hard and fast rule that wreaths are meant solely for your front door – you can hang them on your kitchen door too.
By hanging garlands on your kitchen door, you can bring the holiday cheer while still having enough space for other Christmas décor.
3. Serve Some Edible Christmas Decorations
With all the Christmas food that you’ll be cooking, why not prepare a few good-to-eat decorations, like a gingerbread house or edible snowflakes?
While your baked biscuits, cake and Christmas pudding are sure to tempt your guests, these edible decorations will make it all the more inviting. Don’t forget to keep some Christmas napkins and plates to catch those crumbs.
4. Add Some Beautiful Ornaments
When it comes to Christmas decor ideas for your kitchen, you can’t afford to miss out on beautiful knick-knacks.
Embellishments like themed prints, bowls full of baubles, small trees and wooden reindeer are a perfect fit for your Christmas kitchen. These are not only small and discreet but can also be dotted on kitchen worktops, islands and shelves.
5. Set a Festive Table
What’s more, when you deck your kitchen table extravagantly, the rest of your space requires little to no decoration while still giving away sufficient holiday vibes. An excellent way to decorate your table is to go for bold red – after all, it’s fun for both grown ups and children, and works perfectly with many different colour schemes.
6. Go Bold With Your Christmas Tree
If you’ve got an open-plan kitchen, then a great way to add that much-needed holiday flair is by setting up your Christmas tree here.
Decorate the tree with colours that blend perfectly with your current kitchen design and place it near the dining area. That way, you can admire its beauty while enjoying your Christmas meal.
7. Hang Fairy Lights to Lighten the Mood
Fairy lights are an immediate Christmas-pick-me-up and when hung on open shelves, fireplaces and cabinets, they add an instant festive vibe to your kitchen in the evening. You could go for LED lights, if you’re looking for an eco-friendly option.
Make sure you’re hanging them high because that way you not only lighten the mood but also keep it away from your children’s reach.
