Look around your house and think of all the rooms you spend time in every day. You've put a lot of time and attention into decorating all of them with the most aesthetically-pleasing items, but you may have neglected your kitchen. Sure, the kitchen is normally a utility room used for storing and preparing food, but it should be beautiful just like the other rooms in your house. A great way to add some decorative flare to your kitchen is to include some colorful accents on your counter tops. Here are some suggestions:
Form and Function
First, you'll need to consider the amount of space you have to work with. You don't want your counter tops to look too cluttered, nor do you want your decorations to be too sparse. Many homeowners take advantage of beautiful cooking supply containers, and some appliances are as attractive as they are useful. Cutlery and large utensils come in many colors and styles to complement the rest of your decor. These items don't even have to be costly. Mason jars and old-fashioned milk jugs are perfect options.
Food storage items can be equally pleasing to the eye. Items like cookie jars, fruit bowls, bread baskets or even jams and jellies can add inviting pops of color to your counter top design.
Light the Way
Your counter tops can be the perfect avenue for dramatic lighting effects for your kitchen design. You can add visual interest and warmth by installing recessed lighting directly into the counters, or add rope, accent or task lighting to brighten darker areas under the bottoms of cabinets or in corners.
