The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a home. It is not only a place where you create meals to nourish your family but a room where you entertain guests and share conversation. A kitchen also says a lot about a person and the decor you pick can reflect an extension of your personality. We recently found some stylish options - including options for an eco-chic kitchen, a modern kitchen and a traditional one - to inspire decor ideas for a stylish new kitchen. Enjoy and please share your kitchen decor tips below.
1. Eco-Chic Decor Ideas. Going green is all the rage these days and it is easy to see why. Sustainable and recycled furnishings like bamboo are not only better for the environment, but they make any kitchen look sophisticated and clean (even with kids). We love these brown and white cabinets that look natural and fresh - especially when paired with sleek and modern stainless steel appliances.
2. Modern Kitchen Decor Ideas. Modern kitchens generally feature the latest in the technology but they also include innovative and unique design concepts like this dome-like kitchen. Created in Italy, this kitchen would be ideal for a city dweller who is seeking a sleek and chic kitchen. We love the shape and clean white color that also includes tons of storage space.
3. Traditional Kitchen Decor Ideas. Sometimes, though traditional feels the most "homey" and comfortable like in the case of this Tuscan-themed kitchen. Using deep-wood and browns, the kitchen has a modern stovetop but uses darker colors for a warmer feel. The sink-in-the-table concept is also a great touch for added space and efficiency as well as the spacious cabinets for storage. A room like this can also easily be updated with some color if you wanted to mix it up a few years down the line.
