The festive season is upon us and it’s time to deck the halls – but don’t forget about the kitchen when decorating your home for Christmas. The kitchen serves as a hub not only for cooking but dining, socialising, and entertaining throughout the festive season. From Christmas trees to hanging wreaths, here are 8 ways to decorate your kitchen for Christmas and bring some festive cheer to your space.
1. Display a Wreath
Christmas wreaths are not only limited to your front door, they look great in the kitchen too! Hang wreaths and garlands from the ceiling, cabinets, shelving, or kitchen door to add an instant Christmas feel. From wreaths with holly, pinecones, berries, and pine to baubles, lights, and bows, there are loads of styles to choose from to add a touch of Christmas to your kitchen.
2. Create a Tablescape
Decorate your table to add Christmas cheer to your kitchen dining area. Set the table in style by creating a stunning tablescape. Start with a table cloth in your favourite Christmas colours, add tableware, choose an eyecatching floral centrepiece, and finish with playful finishing touches such as candles, velvet ribbons, and handwritten place names.
3. Add a Christmas Tree
For most, the Christmas tree is traditionally in the living room. However, if you have space for one in your kitchen, adding a tree is the best way to add some Christmas magic to your space. You can opt for a real tree or an artificial one, then wrap your lights around and decorate your tree by hanging garlands, ribbons, tinsel, and baubles in a variety of shapes, sizes, and designs.
4. Experiment with Colour
Christmas doesn’t have to mean traditional green and red. This year, why not experiment with colour. You can find decorations in every colour imaginable, from red, blue, silver, and white, to pink, gold, green, orange, and purple. Choose a colour scheme that matches your kitchen’s colours, or one that stands out against your kitchen’s units and walls.
5. Hang Fairy Lights
Hanging fairy lights is a simple and impactful way to bring festive joy to any room. Twinkling fairy lights draped over fireplaces, cabinets, and shelves creates a cosy atmosphere for a festive ambience. Light up your kitchen with a string of fairy lights to create a warm and inviting glow and add a touch of sparkle this Christmas.
6. Light a Fragranced Candle
Lighting a fragranced candle is an easy way to bring festive cheer into your home. From cinnamon, berries, and orange to pine, ginger, and clove, you can’t beat the scents of Christmas wafting through your kitchen. Fill the air with beautiful scents to create the perfect Christmas atmosphere.
7. Add Festive Ornaments
Scatter Christmas ornaments and accessories around the kitchen to bring Christmas to your space. Simply take your favourite decorations such as mini Christmas trees, stockings, tinsel, Christmas tree ornaments, and bowls of baubles and dot them around the room on countertops, islands, and shelves to spruce up your kitchen.
8. Bake Christmas Treats
No Christmas kitchen would be complete without delicious Christmas food! Why not use your kitchen to make your favourite Christmas treats such as mince pies, gingerbread houses, Christmas cake, and Christmas cookies. This is the perfect finishing touch to any Christmas kitchen and will help bring some Christmas spirit to your space.
