The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in any home. That's why it should be filled with inspiration and tips on how to keep your space clean, organized, and beautiful! Almost often, the kitchen is the gathering place for family and friends for wonderful meals and discussion. With today's five simple styling techniques, you can fall in love with your kitchen by creating a curated appearance that is warm and welcoming.

#1- Counter Stools with Texture

Adding counter stools with interesting textures can help to define the space and add visual interest. Leather, metal, or wood stools can all play a part in creating a curated kitchen. If you are looking for comfort, choose a fabric like velvet to soften the look and feel of your kitchen. The texture is created using organic fabrics in a non-obtrusive way. The popularity of woven barstools has grown. However, leather is a more long-lasting alternative. These stools in our Desert Oasis Project kitchen have a lovely layered aesthetic thanks to their deep texture, gorgeous caramel hue, and tie detail.

#2- Ceramics with a uniqueness 

Ceramics are a great way to add personality and uniqueness to any kitchen. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors which can really help to define the space. Whether you choose to have a few statement pieces or go for a whole collection of ceramics, they will always help to create a curated look. Combine your white dishware with ceramic serving platters, crocks, and planters in a variety of neutral colors. Look for glazes, textures, and forms that you enjoy. To create a layering of unique treasures on your designed shelves, combine white, brown, and terracotta.

#3 - Tones of Mixed Wood

Mixed woods such as oak, maple, and walnut are a great way to add warmth to your kitchen. These tones will help you create the perfect balance of texture in the space. Wood looks amazing with textured fabrics like velvet or linen. It also plays nicely off shiny metals found on barstools or serving pieces. Create interest by using different wood tones in small doses. Try a natural oak island against white walls and modern appliances or go for a dark walnut floor with light maple cabinets. When selecting furniture, it is important to remember that the kitchen should be comfortable and functional as well as stylish. A flat effect is created by keeping all of the woods in your kitchen the same tone. Mix bright and dark wood elements to make it feel more fascinating. A medium tone beam over the range and dark wood style details on the worktops and shelving add depth to your light wood floors.

#4- Add art to your walls and shelves

With the help of modern printing techniques, you can now easily decorate your kitchen with unique pictures and artwork without breaking the bank. To create a collection that is curated to reflect who you are as people, use images based on topics or memories that have meaning for you. For example, if one room in your home has an obvious memory connection, use that as the theme for your artwork. Think about how you can display them either singularly or in a series of two, three, or more to create an engaging focal point above the range. Find a piece of art that you enjoy and layer it into your shelf or counter decorating, whether you prefer oils, watercolors, or photography. It may not be your first thought to put art in the kitchen, but it enriches the aesthetic by adding color, texture, and beauty.

#5 - Lighting that makes a statement

Last but not least is lighting. To create the perfect balance of function and design, you need to look at your space with an eye toward illumination in terms of both task and ambient light. You want everything from overhead lighting to pendants or recessed lights above the island for cooking tasks while also considering table lamps, sconces, candles, and other dining room lighting. To make the space feel cozy, choose warm lightbulbs for your fixtures while still making sure to take advantage of any natural lighting coming in through the windows with sheer curtains or glass panels instead of walls. Builder lighting might be flat and lifeless. Change it out for some eye-catching illumination. Find something you like that is beautiful on its own but also blends in with the rest of your decor and enhances the colors and textures you currently have.
