How to Brighten Your Kitchen For Spring
Spring has officially started. Most people have begun spring cleaning and getting their homes freshened up. If you’re looking to put a spring touch on your kitchen, you’ve got several options to do just that. Use these tips to brighten things up and get your kitchen ready for spring and summer!
How to Decorate Your Kitchen for Spring
Flowers are a spring staple and can instantly brighten up your space. In spring, there are many options available. Some flowers that are in season during the spring are:
- Crocus: these low-growing flowers resemble jewels and add a beautiful touch of purple, white, yellow, and more to your home during the spring.
- Daffodil: this fan-favorite flower will instantly bring spring cheer to your kitchen with it’s bloom and bright pop of color. Tip: try the gold!
- Tulip: this flower’s bright colors scream “spring!” There are plenty of colors and shapes of tulips so you can find what works best with the color scheme you’re working with.
Flowers offer many benefits in addition to decorating your home, like boosting your mood. If you need to put a little pep in your kitchen to get it ready for spring, it can also help improve how you’re feeling.
Have a Seasonal Food and Beverage Station
The next spring decor tip for your kitchen is to have a seasonal food and beverage station. Set up a little nook in your kitchen to serve fun, springtime food and drinks to your family and friends. You can try pastel-colored M&Ms, fruits and veggies like carrots or strawberries, and fun drinks like lemonade (or a bright-colored cocktail for the adults!) You can also put out garnishes for the drinks like lemon slices and mint. These fun colors coming from foods and drinks will help instantly brighten your kitchen for a short amount of time, so this is best if you’re in a pinch! This is the most high-maintenance option, however, as you’ll have to put the food and drinks away each day.
Incorporate Bright Colors
Add colors where it’s easy. You might not want to commit to painting a wall a bright color, but you can add springtime colors throughout your kitchen by using bright linens, kitchen mats, and more to transform your kitchen to being a springtime dream. These springtime colors can also translate easily into summer decor, so you’ll get two seasons of use out of these items.
You can find everything online. If you have a spare frame lying around, try getting online to find an inspirational quote or seasonal saying to print out. Having this frame sit on your kitchen counter is a simple, yet effective, way to decorate your kitchen for spring. If you are having a tough time finding one you like, try using Pinterest, or, make it a fun family activity and have your kids each design one!
