5 things to add to your kitchen

If you’re like me and spend a majority of your time in the kitchen, then you will understand why it’s so important the kitchen is as welcoming as any other room in the house.

I have seen so many dream kitchens on Pinterest to know what I am lacking in my kitchen. Given that this house a rental we are very limited on how “personalized” our home is to our taste. So it’s been a task of mine to create a space that is as personalized and welcoming as possible.

Here are some things I have added to my kitchen to up the vibe of our humble abode.

1.A Good Rug

This goes a long way, I have seen a dramatic change in the “feel” of my kitchen simply because we added this gorgeous rug runner from Plush Rugs. This exact style is the gorgeous Safavieh Kenya I fell in love with the neutral tones and geometric pattern and how in its own way it stood out. This is a great way to not only bring style to your kitchen but give it more of a comfortable feeling!

2. Alternative Storage

Nothing is better the creating more space in a kitchen with limited cabinet space. I found it visually appealing once our pot rack went up it created a “lived in” feel I wanted for my kitchen without giving me that cluttered feeling.

3. Add Greenery

Wreaths are not only for your front door anymore. Any type of greenery is sure to bring life into your home and create a welcoming space!


Shelves are great, they can be used for anything! I added a shelf to keep my knick knacks in my kitchen and help clear up my counter space. This has been a great way to add some flare to my kitchens style! Shelves are also a great alternative storage option for kitchen wares!

5. Minimalize

Sometimes you “add” to your kitchen by taking away unwanted clutter! I store my toaster, Keurig, crockpot etc in my cupboards or pantry to maximize my counter space and leave my kitchen feeling clutter free and clean.

    I like this list. Very clear and direct. I also like that you said to minimize the stuff. That’s the best way to spruce up any room.

    Number 5 is my favourite. I couldn’t agree more. Some times removing the unnecessary makes a room feel even more cozy and relaxing. I’m just like you, I do spend a lot of time in my kitchen and it has to be a nice relaxing room for me!
