Fool-proof Tips For Elevating Your Kitchen

Heart of the home inspiration

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home… 

and we couldn’t agree more! As summer comes to a close and our schedules are shifting, we’re spending more and more time in our kitchens.  

No matter how big or small a kitchen space is, there are a few things we like to consider when designing and styling them to make sure they are filled with form and function.  

Here are some of our favorite ways to elevate any kitchen space:  

 

No. 1: Add warmth with a runner

If you’re hesitant to style a rug in your kitchen, we get it! Kitchens are high-traffic areas that typically involve frequent spills and happy accidents. However, the right runner adds so much warmth and texture to the kitchen, and using a piece made with a highly durable material like wool can actually simplify clean-up time.

No. 2: Bring unexpected texture with your stools and chairs

Incorporating eye-catching designer details into your seating pieces is one of the easiest ways to add a layer of thoughtfulness to any kitchen or dining look.

Whether it’s a warm leather wrap or a subtle woven detail, textural seating elements instantly bring more interest and dimension to your space.

No. 3: Incorporate elevated details 

 When it comes to kitchen styling, it’s all about the little details that bring both personality and functionality to your space. We love adding vintage-inspired art, textural cutting boards, and pretty serveware to open shelving and countertop surfaces. 

One of our favorite ways to add functional beauty to the kitchen is by styling a tray or pedestal next to the stove or sink to keep olive oil, salt, pepper, or other frequently used necessities.
