You’ve always dreamed of a beautiful kitchen and this time, you’re ready to make that dream come true. But as you start planning, you also begin to feel the pressure of doing things right so you can achieve your goal for your kitchen.
We’ve talked about this before. Our post about 2019 kitchen design was one of our most viewed articles. So we decided to serve up another design trend post for the masses.
The truth is; decorating this space is really tricky because more than style, you also need to think about functionality when choosing fixtures, furniture and even décor pieces. To get started, here are 5 kitchen decorating tips that you need to keep in mind:
 Storage, Storage and Yes, Storage
Your kitchen will be home to a lot of things: appliances, cookware, kitchen utensils, plates, cups and groceries. So the first thing that you should consider when renovating or decorating this area is storage.
To avoid clutter on your countertop or island, you can adapt the concept of concealing appliances where you can store your coffeemaker, toaster and even your fridge in hidden cabinetry that’s also easily accessible.
Storage can also be in the form of multi-functional décor like artisan bowls or baskets that double as storage for vegetables and fruits or mason jars where you can keep dry ingredients like flour, sugar and salt.
 Get Into Shelving
If you have a small kitchen, an open shelf is a better choice over a full cabinetry because you can use it for storing things and displaying décor while freeing up a lot of wall space. Floating shelves also help you keep things organized since you can see everything.
Shelving is just such a game changer for the modern, luxurious kitchen. Well placed shelving is not only functional, but it is beautiful.
Kitchen shelving is great for these reasons:
Put it up, take it down. Shelving is as versatile as your changing tastes and your changing diet.
If you decide to grow your own basil, get s shelf for it. Tired of basil? Remove the shelf, put it next to the stove and make it a go to spice rack.
Fill Unfillable Spaces
Are you stuck with an odd space? A corner that cannot be filled correctly? A hypnotically blank wall? Fill it with a shelf. It can be purely decorative too. Not all shelves have to be functional or useful.
Keep Counters Clean
Minimal is the way of the future. 2020 is going to be a year of minimal design. Not just because it’s economically smarter, but because status is in the less is more approach.
Luxury means having one expensive times; not 10 cheap items.
 Keep Thing Simple
Since your kitchen already has a lot going on, it’s best to focus on a simpler style when decorating the space. The trick here is all about contrasts and juxtaposition. For instance, if you choose patterned or marble tiles for your backsplash, keep everything else in the room in muted hues. You can always go for out-of-the-ordinary materials, but try to balance them out properly to avoid making your kitchen look busier than it already is.
As we mentioned in our post about 2020 design trends, less is more.
Keeping your kitchen simple is a statement of they kind of life you lead. You are efficient, you are organized, and you have your home and life together. You;re living your best and you don;t have time for the kinds of drama that envelopes others. You are about being the best!

Paint isn’t the only cheap and easy option to updating the look of your kitchen. If your cabinets are bland but you don’t have the budget to replace them, use quirky hardware in a unique finish or material and you’ll instantly see a huge difference to your kitchen in just one afternoon.
Quirky means personality. Let your inner interior designer flare come out!

 Go For Pendant Lighting
Good lighting is essential for your kitchen, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play with your lights in this area. This year’s trend is leaning towards pendant lights that add that hint of drama to your space even if you only have minimal décor.
While there are no hard-and-fast rules to decorating your kitchen, knowing a few basic tips will help you get a headstart with this project and keep you on track with your goals.
The trick here is to adapt a style that reflects your personality the most and of course, make sure that the layout and design of your kitchen fits your lifestyle too so you can enjoy the space even more.
