In India, the kitchen is definitely the heart of the home. It is often a place where family members catch up after a tiring day, prepare meals together, bond with kids or simply enjoy a quiet cup of coffee. So your kitchen should be as beautiful as it is functional. But this doesn’t mean you have to go for a complete or expensive makeover. Small decor ideas can work great as well. Check out the 15 we have collated here.

1. Use old or vintage collectibles

A vintage jug from your grandmother’s time or wicker baskets can enhance the look and feel of your kitchen.

2. Floating shelf for cookbooks

Add a sleek wall shelf in an elegant colour and adorn it with cookbooks, vases or showpieces. This kitchen was rendered by the interior architects at Niyazi Özçakar Iç Mimarlik.

3. How about a blackboard?

A blackboard in your kitchen can be a fun way of communicating between family members. You can jot down recipes or grocery lists as well on it.

4. Bright colours

Take a break from classic white or cream kitchens, and paint a table or chairs in a bright hue like yellow, green or red.

5. Both aesthetic and functional

Mount an elegant wooden rack on your kitchen wall and display pretty cups, saucers and jars in it.

6. A wooden chopping board

Just call a carpenter and get a stylish wooden chopping board attached with your island or counter. Chop veggies or fruits easily on it.

7. Dry peppers and eggplants to the rescue

Have nothing ornamental to hang in your kitchen? Consider hanging a bunch of dried eggplants or peppers for a unique look.

8. Consider an island

Though incorporating an island can be slightly expensive, it can be very helpful. Go for a small one with inbuilt cabinets or drawers for more functionality.

9. Make counters interesting

Instead of using a common colour or material for counters, consider something different like wood, as shown here. Wood is versatile when it comes to different designs and shapes, and your kitchen will look warm and elegant too.

10. Show off!

Neat glass showcases can be a great way of displaying your beautiful china and crystals. Add them in your kitchen for a brand new look.

11. Multifunctional is in

Suspend a steel rack like the one shown here from the ceiling of your kitchen. It is lightweight, stylish and can be used to store crockery that is not used often. You can also hang ladles and spatulas from this.

12. Unique accessories

Want your kitchen to stand out from the rest? Search for original or unique accessories like this wine bottle holder shown here.

13. Consider bright fruits

Something as simple as a bright fruit like an apple, orange, watermelon or grapes can transform your kitchen’s look miraculously.

14. Magic with open shelves

Open shelves like these can look pretty and house all your beautiful dinnerware. Arrange plates, bowls or cups tastefully for maximum visual appeal.

15. Embrace drawer cabinets

Though a little expensive to install, drawer cabinets are perfect for compartmentalising drawers easily. This aids in better organisation of veggies, fruits, crockery, cutlery, cleaning supplies and so on.
