If you are an interesting and unique individual with a lot of flair, then you will likely desire to extend those characteristics to your kitchen décor. This becomes increasingly important if you like to expand the time spent gathering with the family, to include time sharing good food and memories with friends. Transforming your kitchen into a fun and entertaining place can be a fun and enjoyable activity, with your imagination providing the most unique and interesting kitchen décor ideas.
Keeping It Interesting and Unique
You may or may not want to incorporate a theme, but while there are several popular kitchen themes, there are also some less common used themes; and you can even make up some of your own themes based on things that interest you. Classic vintage fifties décor, for example, has a lot of character. It may be more difficult to find, and if you are creative, you may be better off designing and putting together your own vintage décor. You can include kitchen accessories in bright colors that give a nice retro look and feel.
A wonderful kitchen décor idea that would fit nicely with this theme is an old diner style table, with chairs of different styles and/or colors. You can even get away with mixing an old table with a surface containing metal flakes, with modern steel chairs. The fun possibilities are truly endless. You might even consider a table, bench and chairs modeled after a corner diner booth.
Another Kitchen Décor Idea
Another kitchen décor idea is to simply select a color scheme based on the colors of your favorite country flag. Red, white and blue would represent the United States or France, while green, white and red, for example, could represent Italy. You can then accessorize your kitchen using these colors. You can extend this color scheme concept to include bold checkerboard patterns throughout your kitchen.
If you like astrology or celestial images, you can use the sun, moon and stars in your kitchen décor ideas. While there are some kitchen accessories with this theme, they are harder to find, but you can definitely create a unique and cosmic kitchen with this theme.
You may consider decorating with a dark sky blue and yellow, or even rarer, with metallic silver and/or gold. Stars and other celestial motifs can look gorgeous when painted on white cabinets. Finally, consider adding the right lights and candles.
In addition to modern lights, or lights with a celestial design, you can use strings of Christmas lights for a beautiful and warm touch. These lights are often used in restaurants year-round, and are a great kitchen décor idea. They can be mixed with foliage or vines, or simply added to cabinetry for a nice, warm glow.
