In spring, you see flowers and trees in full bloom. It could be one of your favorite seasons, but regardless of the reason why you love spring, you may want to bring that feeling inside your kitchen. That would be amazing, right? Spring puts everyone in a very light mood causing them to be happy.
If you are thinking of bringing spring into in your kitchen, you can start by following these steps:
1. Hang a Plant
Spring is synonymous with rebirth and renewal in nature, so what better representation of this idea than to have plants inside your kitchen! You can place a plant anywhere in the room- on the countertop, near the window, or even as a centerpiece for your dining area. If you do not have any space in the mentioned areas, go ahead and hang your plant. There are countless options for succulents and indoor plants for this purpose.
Plants can easily bring life and color to your kitchen- plus they are a good source of oxygen. It can instantly change the mood of whoever decides to give your kitchen a visit.
2. Consider Florals
If you want to make a bold statement in your kitchen, floral patterns might do the trick for you. You can use different sizes of floral artwork to be hung inside the kitchen, or use floral printed table napkins. Just make sure that you don’t go overboard with the floral patterns, though. Limit your use of floral patterns in one or two items only.
3. Paint a Statement Wall
If you have the time this weekend, paint one of your kitchen walls with bold colors like fuchsia, teal or blue. This will quickly create the atmosphere of spring.
4. Grow Herbs
Do you love to cook or love to garden? If yes, this DIY is for you. All you need are small rocks (which you can get around your neighborhood), soil, a mason jar and herb seeds. Fill up the mason jar with small rocks and soil, sprinkle with herb seeds and then another thin layer of soil. Place these on your kitchen windowsill and watch them grow. You no longer need to buy herbs from the local supermarket, and you are also adding more greens to your kitchen.
5. Upgrade Kitchen Knobs
You want your kitchen to feel like spring- even in the smallest details. Fortunately, one of the most accessible places to make some changes is in your cabinet knobs. Mostly, cabinet knobs come in dull, plain colors but you can change that easily. You can purchase colorful cabinet knobs from your local hardware store- and it only takes about 20 minutes to install them. You can choose to mix and match patterns per cabinet or use one pattern in all of your cabinets for uniformity.
6. Freshen Up
Aside from decorating your kitchen for spring, you would want it to smell like spring too. But don’t worry, making it smell like spring doesn’t need to be expensive or stressful for you. You just need slices of lemon, rosemary and vanilla extract. You only have to mix all of these, add water and let it simmer in a saucepan. Once finished, transfer the mixture to a mason jar and be amazed by how this will completely change your kitchen’s atmosphere. Even better, consider getting a portable air conditioner - that way you’ll feel soothing spring-like breezes on even the most stifling summer days.
7. Colorful Dinnerware
Who says your dinnerware should be exempted from your kitchen’s spring transformation? You can bring spring to your cups, plates, and silverware with colors of pink, blue or orange. You can go for one color all throughout all of your dinnerware, or combine two or three of your favorite colors. This splash of colors can easily brighten your kitchen.
8. Add Scented Soaps and Candles
There is a particular scent in the air when you are outdoors. During springtime and as much as possible, you want to bring this feeling into the kitchen. The most effortless way to do this is by purchasing scented soaps and candles. Set more than one inside your kitchen to ensure that the scent is all over the area.
There’s just something about spring that makes you calm and excited at the same time. It could be the temperature rising or the birds chirping, but regardless of the reason, you’d be crazy not to want to replicate that feeling in your kitchen and experience spring at any time of the year.
