How to Bring More Joy to Your Kitchen

Do you want a more feel-good vibe for your kitchen? Maybe too many high-tech materials create an austere vibe. Perhaps the color palette lacks warmth and hospitality. Here are a few ways you can bring serenity, enjoyment and even a bit of humor into your kitchen.

1. Include natural finishes and textures for emotional warmth.


Sleek finished are alluring because they’re easy to clean. But too much metal and high sheen can be overpowering, and can make your kitchen feel unwelcoming, harsh and cold. Kitchens with rustic inspirations are back in style. This includes the use of natural wood textures, and concrete.  focus on your kitchen cabinets and countertops to include these trendy textures.

2. Create an inviting mood with color.


White, green and yellow colors are highlighted by feng shui experts as especially good colors for kitchens. White represents purity and cleanliness. Green is evocative of plant life, and is thought to nourish and calm.

3. Bring out your “soft side” with fabric.


Use fabric to introduce softness, color, texture and pattern into your kitchen. If your dining or breakfast bar chairs need a refresh, you can always cover your seats with slipcovers. Fabric is also more comfortable to sit on than leather, especially during hot summer months.

4. Make everything more comfortable.


Another way to increase comfort in your kitchen is to make it more inviting: try bringing round shapes and curves.

5. Create calm environments.


Select soothing, healthful color schemes, and relaxing artwork. A framed poster, print, or children’s drawing can have a similar effect. Adding some artwork is a great way to add style to any kitchen space.

6. Grow Something


Having fresh herbs flourish in your window looks pretty, purifies the air, and makes cooking with fresh herbs easy again. Not only do you save big money every time you go to the grocery store, growing herbs is mentally therapeutic.

7. Have Fun


Although it’s been around for a few years, chalkboard paint is another way to create new ways for interacting with others in your kitchen. Write custom messages, recipes, or let your kids have fun with it.
