Creative Christmas kitchen decorating ideas
The correct choice of Christmas decor in the kitchen depends primarily on the size of the room. Surely, placing a full size Christmas tree is not possible in every kitchen. However, even for small kitchens there are suitable solutions.
You can choose classic symbols for decorating your kitchen in a bright and merry way. Select colorful holiday accessories – statuettes of Santa Claus, evergreen branches, bright candy canes, Christmas wreaths, pine cones, shiny Christmas baubles, fluffy garlands with lights, etc. Do not forget about the classic colors of Christmas – bright green and red. These colors are not only perfectly combined with each other, but also perfectly complement the neutral color scheme. If the interior of your kitchen is in neutral white, gray, brown or beige colors, then adding just a few Christmas elements and accessories in green or red will make the atmosphere more vivid and lively and the kitchen will look brighter and festive.
A large Christmas tree is appropriate in open plan spaces – kitchen-dining room or kitchen-living room. If the place allows, do not hesitate to choose a tree. Tabletop Christmas trees are a good choice for small kitchens. They are also good because you can place them anywhere – on the countertop, on the kitchen island, on the windowsill, on a shelf, in the center of the dining table or on a small table somewhere in the corner.
Decorating the kitchen with Christmas tree branches is a great alternative for small spaces. You can arrange them in a vase, a glass jar, a decanter, a jug, an iron bucket, etc. Add some colorful ornaments or ribbons, paper snowflakes, etc.
Christmas wreaths can be used for windows, kitchen cabinet fronts, walls in the work area. There is a huge variety of wreaths in all sizes so you can easily find what you need. String lights are a must during winter holidays. The tiny lights create a magical atmosphere and a romantic mood. The advantage of Christmas lights is that there is a place for them in any, even the most compact kitchen.
Decorative compositions – this can be a great last minute idea as you can assemble one in a matter of minutes. You will need a vase, a transparent box, a jar, a basket, a bucket or any other container. Collect cones, tree ornaments, beads, candies in bright wrappers, gingerbread, nuts, candles, glass pebbles, oranges and tangerines, figurines, etc. Place them in the container and you have a festive centerpiece!
