The kitchen has long been the center of the home. It's where we go to get warm, inside and out! Many people have memories of smelling mother's baking, drawing us to the kitchen. Perhaps for this reason, when we are entertaining, guests seem to migrate to the kitchen.
How about making your kitchen even more inviting by incorporating a loveseat, settee or chair and a half complete with ottoman? If your space is limited, perhaps just an occasional chair would be more appropriate.
Above all else, make your decorating scheme reflect your personality. Are you a gourmet cook? Then, by all means you should incorporate unique utensils and gadgets into your décor! Wooden spoons, spice graters, whisks, copper molds, etc are all great kitchen accessories. These items could be hung on the walls for dual purposes: decorating your kitchen, and also easy accessibility for cooking.
Window treatments for the kitchen are wide and varied. In fact, today more and more homeowners are opting for uniquely designed fabric top treatments, usually placed over a privacy treatment. Stagecoach valances, mock throw swags, and tabbed valances displayed on unique decorative rods really fit the bill!
So have fun with your kitchen! Be sure to let your cooking personality shine through
