The ultimate kitchen design will incorporate five essential elements. These are layout, storage, appliances, finishes, and décor items. No kitchen is truly stylish without all five coming together to create magic.

Top Things To Keep In Mind When Remodeling Your Kitchen Or Bathroom

Kitchen Decor Must-Haves

Once you have figured out the first four parts, all that is left are the décor pieces that will tie everything together.

Kitchens can be utilitarian spaces that lack warmth and personal touch without décor items, so to avoid that happening to yours – follow these five simple tips below.

Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper

For people who like to change things up with minimal effort and even less financial investment, peel-and-stick wallpaper is the answer to almost everything.

They can even get used as a backsplash, so there is no excuse not to inject colorful patterns into your kitchen.

If bold design isn’t your cup of tea, choose a neutral option to change the look of your kitchen in lighting speed.

This wallpaper is also great for renters who cannot make drastic changes to their landlord’s house.


Indoor plants are known to purify air by removing toxins, boosting oxygen levels, and creating the perfect calming space for you to cook in.

If space is limited in your kitchen, choose small houseplants for shelves or corners. Take advantage of free vertical space by popping some plants in hanging pots.

The perfect plants for your kitchen are low-maintenance options like peace lilies, aloe vera, or lavender.

Cooking Gear

Making your cooking experience more enjoyable by buying the best kitchen gear.

Think outside the box here, but be sure to have the essentials covered, like choosing the perfect apron.

While cooking, always wear long pants, shirts with sleeves, and closed-toe shoes to prevent burns and other injuries.

Do not wear loose sleeves while cooking; they are more likely to get caught on handles or catch fire.

Layered Lighting

Streamlined, modern kitchens deserve chic LED strip lighting to get installed beneath upper cabinetry.

Think New York City apartment vibes with countertops lit by this stunning decorative feature.

Your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home, meaning that it needs layered lighting to look its best.

Do not be afraid to use less traditional kitchen lighting to get the job done. For example, a table lamp may not be able to light your whole kitchen, but it will be a fantastic way to provide task lighting while making your kitchen feel like a cozier space.

Country Elements

Cottage Core is currently making waves in the world of interior décor.

Cottage-style kitchens are trendier than ever, and everyone seems to be chasing that vintage farmhouse look.

Choose a neutral palette in whites and light greys to compliment gooseneck sconces and copper cookware. Wire mesh egg boxes will always be a cute and fun addition to your kitchen – they are so country.

To End

Don’t overthink your decisions.

Your kitchen is arguably the hardest-working room in your home, so always choose functional yet aesthetically pleasing items to bring your kitchen to life.

The perfect elements will feel right to you – you need to learn to embrace them.
