To ensure that you love cooking in your kitchen and that your event is a success, we’ve come up with all the décor essentials to get the heart of your home holiday-ready. Read on for five easy ways to refresh your kitchen for the most fabulous holiday get-together ever.


1. Let The Lighting Steal The Show

Lighting has the biggest impact on the look and feel of a room. Make a stylish statement by updating your overhead lights with eye-catching pendants. To give your kitchen a warm and inviting atmosphere, be sure to layer light sources by adding under cabinet lights and candles at varying heights. Soft lighting is a perfect choice for those evening get-togethers.

 

2. Update Your Hardware

A quick and easy way to give your kitchen a fabulous facelift is by updating your hardware. Replace knobs, pulls and even faucets with new, modern ones. Try brass or matte black finishes for an updated look. This little trick will give your kitchen a major boost of luxury without breaking the bank.

 

3. Focus On The Floors

Whether it’s a Persian area rug or striped vinatge runner, nothing says cozy like a rug. Add one to your kitchen floors as a way to incorporate some color and a cozy texture to your space—it’ll make for an incredibly warm and merry room.

 

4. Don’t Forget To Add Seating

Put some bar stools in your kitchen so guests feel comfy cooking and gathering. More seating will make the space feel welcoming, plus family and friends get to help with the cooking. When it comes to large dinner preparations, you’ll love having the extra hand.

 

5. Adorn Your Walls

Your kitchen is the heart of the home, so why not decorate with personal items? Add some panache to the walls, whether it’s your favorite art prints or framed family photos. Art-filled walls are sure to inject a snug and lived-in vibe to your kitchen, making it cheery, cozy and full of personality.
