4 Christmas decoration ideas for your kitchen

During the festive season, we tend to focus all of our attention on dressing the Christmas tree or decorating our home with lights, but we often ignore the real heart of the home, the kitchen. So whether yours is a classic or contemporary style, we’ve got some festive inspiration to add some Christmas cheer to your kitchen…

  1. Add rustic charm

Adding hints of rich green tones throughout the kitchen, and combining with rustic textures, is a great way to add a festive spirit without going over the top. Decking out the home doesn’t always have to be about the bright flashing lights. Welcome some good old fashioned greenery by decorating your cupboard doors with a pinecone wreath or hang faux forest garlands from the ceiling.

  1. Fill with fragrance

Immerse your home with the sc ents of Christmas so that when you walk in, you instantly feel cosy and festive. Bring your kitchen to life with the flicker of candlelight that give off scents such as cinnamon and orange, frankincense or nutmeg. Or even get the authentic aromas travelling through the home by whipping together some baked goods – there’s nothing like freshly cooked gingerbread.

  1. Deck out the dining table

Creating an inviting spot to sit, eat, and soak up the atmosphere is essential. Christmas is the time to show off your styling skills and create a magical table top that is bound to impress your friends and family. Add a touch of glamour by combining rich gold accessories with soft velvet blue textures.

  1. Spruce up the shelving

A really quick and cost-effective way to style your kitchen for Christmas is to decorate your shelving or open cabinets with pops of red and green, colours that are synonymous with the season to be jolly. Garnish the shelves with bright baubles and frosted pinecones to add a subtle yet festive touch.
