There’s a reason the kitchen is often referred to as the heart of your home. It’s where we create delicious, nurturing meals for our friends and family. With that in mind, it deserves to be decorated in a way that’s both beautiful and functional, special and practical. Most importantly, you want to pick a design that you won’t feel like you’ll have to update every five years — a design that will stand the test of time.
Luckily, that dream is totally possible! Read on to see the seven timeless kitchen decorating styles we recommend most.
1. Open layouts
Want a bigger kitchen? Knock a wall down. Open layout kitchens are perfect for the family who loves to entertain. Removing unnecessary walls creates a nice, open space and allows you to keep the conversation flowing. “A desire for informal dining and comfortable cooking drives this design trend, supporting a casual yet connected lifestyle,” says Better Homes & Gardens. The publication adds, “Open kitchens encourage interaction and entertainment with their breezy blend of living spaces.”
Not only is this type of layout perfect for big families and having people over, but it’s also an easy way to make you feel like your kitchen has doubled in size. Opening up this space to the rest of the house will make your whole home flow better and breathe easier.
