From natural stone options to engineered stone and many other materials, your kitchen countertop can say a lot about your home. Whether you have a large kitchen or a small kitchen, it is often the countertop that will draw attention. Because this is the case, you will want the surfaces to look as impressive as possible. This guide will give you some of the best decorating ideas for your kitchen countertops.
How to Decorate Your Kitchen Countertops
From cookbooks to cutting boards, canisters and more, there are many great ways to liven up your kitchen design. The following 15 styling tips can help transform the appearance of your kitchen space for the better.
Decorative Hand Soap
Since it is likely that you will have hand soap next to your kitchen sink anyway, why not put the dispenser in a decorative holder? Alternatively, you can place a small decorative tray underneath the dispenser. This simple idea will not take up much counter space, making it a subtle yet perfect improvement to any kitchen.
If you want to add some greenery to your room, plants are an excellent way to bring a pop of color to your countertop space (or kitchen island).
On that note, flowers are also an ideal way to bring some life to your kitchen countertops. If you are looking to give your white kitchen some color or bring visual appeal to a tiny kitchen, fresh flowers can help you do just that.
If you want to skip the flowers, you can always just place an empty decorative vase on your countertop. Displaying a vase as a piece of art can help your kitchen look great.
Another simple design idea is to place a bowl of fruit on your countertop. Whether it’s fresh fruit or fake fruit, you will surely enhance the visual appeal of your space.
From a small sculpture to a large print leaning up against the wall, incorporating art on your kitchen countertop can be just what you need to make it look amazing.
Putting a photo in a decorative frame on your countertop is a great way to add some style. Considering that this also will not take up much room, this is a particularly nice idea for small spaces.
When it comes to books, you will have many options. You can opt to stack hardcover books, place a cookbook in a stand and much more.
Incorporating candles into your design can not only make your countertop look nice, but can make the entire kitchen smell nice as well.
Small appliances like toasters are a common presence in kitchens. This idea not only adds style but is very practical if you use your toaster a lot.
Putting your utensils in a holder on your countertop is also a great way to add both visual and functional appeal.
Even if you have granite countertops that will not get scratched by knives, using cutting boards is recommended. Why not invest in some nice cutting boards that you can keep on your countertop? Simply lean them up against the backsplash when you are not using them.
An attractive knife block is yet another style idea that serves a practical purpose.
Coffee makers (or tea makers), along with mugs and spoons, can be a great way to add some subtle style to your kitchen.
Kitchen staples such as flour and sugar can go in decorative canisters. If you really want to get the best out of this idea, use canisters that match your countertop, backsplash and/or cabinetry.
