Kitchen Christmas Decorating Ideas
The holiday season is right around the corner and will sneak up faster on you than you realize. Starting in your kitchen is the first place to get started with your Christmas decorating. Having a decked-out Christmas kitchen gets everyone in the holiday spirit. From green kitchen appliances to a full-on Christmas tree, you can go as small or as big and bold as you want.
These decor ideas will get you inspired to start your kitchen decorating.
Add Festive Holiday Dishware
Do you have festive servings platters, dishes, and serving utensils? Get the most use out of them by putting them on display for the entire holiday season. You could place them in a china cabinet or on a floating shelf. While you could lean the plates up against the wall, it’s safer to place them in stands. This secures the plates and prevents them from accidentally falling.
You can also make your kitchen look ready for the festivities by setting the table. This gives your kitchen decorating a functional approach. Create a scene by using a tablecloth, placemats, holiday china, silverware, glasses, and a centerpiece. Add artfully placed baking dishes that are green in color to complete the table and give the look of a large family meal. The Buydeem Flat Enameled Cast Iron Casserole Braiser Cozy Greenish and the Buydeem Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven are perfect for this.
Use Green Kitchen Appliances
Leaving your everyday kitchen appliances out will break up the look of your Christmas kitchen. This makes it inconvenient because now you have to put them away for a perfect kitchen design. The best option is to replace your countertop appliances with ones that are on theme for the season. The Buydeem All-in-One Intelligent Steamer and Buydeem 4-Slice Toaster Cozy Greenish DT-6B83G are perfect for this with their gentle green color.
These countertop appliances stand out because they look beautiful and are perfect for the holiday season. Both appliances have multiple functions, making them useful during the hectic holiday season when hosting family and friends. Prepare breakfast and large family meals with ease.
Change Your Kitchen Design With Holiday Rugs
Adding a rug to your kitchen can give it a warm and homey feel. Make it a Christmas-themed rug, and your kitchen design will look ready for the holiday season. Start with a rug in front of the kitchen sink. Choose a thicker one with cushioning for increased support while washing dishes. Then add another rug in front of the stove. You could also place one large rug in the center of your kitchen. Runner rugs are best for galley-style kitchens or those with long walkways.
Create A Christmas Kitchen With A Kitchen Tree
Christmas decorating isn’t just for your living room, and this includes the Christmas tree. Use a small tree that fits the available space in your kitchen. A pencil tree gives you plenty of tree to decorate while not taking up too much floor space. Try decorating your tree with a theme, like mini kitchen appliances as ornaments or decorations that match your kitchen design. There are also plenty of decor ideas that show you how to make your own tree ornaments in the kitchen. Other decor ideas use a country Christmas theme, winter wonderland, or a classic Christmas kitchen design.
Add A Christmas Display Around Your Window and Sink
If your kitchen has a window, this is a perfect place to add kitchen decorating. Drape garland over and around the window. Or hang a wreath in the center of the window. String lights up that will share your Christmas kitchen cheer with anyone outside. Weave red or gold ribbon through the lush green garland for an elegant touch. You could leave it natural or add decorative elements like bows, ornaments, and sprays.
Set Up A Hot Cocoa And Tea Bar
Transform your coffee station into a festive spot for hot cocoa and tea. Arrange festive containers like the Buydeem Glass Food Containers that look elegant and showcase the delicious ingredients. The green lids add a festive touch. Create a display with all of the essentials, cocoa powder, peppermint sticks, mini marshmallows, mixing spoons, and holiday mugs. For greater flexibility, arrange your cocoa station on a mobile bar cart. Then you can move the station from the kitchen to the living room when entertaining guests.
Add A Christmas Cookie Display
Food and the holidays go together hand in hand. Adding a holiday cookie display is a personalized kitchen decorating touch that turns your regular kitchen into a Christmas kitchen. Arrange them in a sealable container to keep them fresh. Choosing one that is made of glass is ideal because it puts the cookies on display and makes them enticing for people to snack on.
Create a full display by adding other holiday treats. You could add a holiday mug with candy canes and lollipops. Use leftover gingerbread dough to make gingerbread men and women. Using a stand or lazy susan gives your display height and creates a full display on your kitchen counter.
Make Kitchen Decorating Easy With Holiday Towels
Sometimes the simplest of decor ideas make the biggest impact. If you do nothing else, add holiday towels to your kitchen design. Hang them from the handle on your oven or place them neatly folded on the countertop near your kitchen appliances. Choose towels that are bright red or green. Or they could be crisp winter white with silver or gold accents.
Mix In Christmas Odds And Ends On Shelves
If you have extra decor that you aren’t sure what to do with, use them in your kitchen. Place them around your kitchen as a fun pop of holiday Christmas color. Tie a stray piece of mistletoe to a light fixture or the handle of a pan that’s hung on the wall. If you have open shelves, then arrange spare ornaments and figurines among the regularly used items. Use the Buydeem Glass Food Containers and fill them with holiday candies. Or stuff them with tinsel and battery-operated fairy lights for a touch of sparkle and shine.
Build A Christmas Gingerbread House Display
One of the hallmarks of Christmas is gingerbread houses. Spend time with your loved ones building the perfect house covered in frosting and candy. Then put it on display as the centerpiece of your Christmas kitchen. This easy kitchen decorating idea does more than just make your kitchen festive; it gives you something to do with your family.
Small kitchens will look perfect with a small house. However, if your kitchen is larger, you can create a full display. Start with a house and add more buildings to create a full gingerbread village.
Add Festive Greenery And Lights
Festive greenery isn’t just for your fireplace mantel and staircase railing. Add greenery to your kitchen Christmas decorating. For an extra burst of cheer, weave lights throughout the greenery. Drape garland over the top of the cabinets or floating cabinets. You can leave them natural or accent them with ornaments and sprays.
If you don’t like the idea of garland, then you can add just the lights. String them around your backsplash, on your oven vent, or arranged in your glass front cabinets. Choose a theme, like all white or colorful.
