Flowers bloom, the days get longer, and beautiful, vibrant colors shine in the sky. The changing of the seasons is a great inspiration for updating everyone’s favorite room in the house – the kitchen! And here are a few design tips to update your kitchen this Spring.
Spring Design Tip #1: Find Inspiration in Nature
Bring the outside in. When you are looking to change up your design aesthetic, start by getting in touch with nature. Designers often tout the idea of borrowing elements found in nature, also known as “bio-mimicry,” when they begin to design a space.
To start, immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. Go on a hike or spend some time in the garden. Feel the unique texture of the new leaves, and explore the rich color palettes of flowers, trees, and plants that surround you.
Then, find ways to incorporate these natural elements into your kitchen design. Add splashes of color directly inspired by your flower bed, or opt for textured, earth-inspired wall accents. You’ll be enjoying the spring-time refreshment in no time!
Spring Design Tip #2: Create an Indoor Herb Garden
Few things are as delectable as cooking with fresh herbs, but your herb garden can also serve as a design centerpiece for your kitchen.
A sunny spot on your kitchen counter is the perfect place to display your favorite herbs, like thyme, mint, and basil! Plus, you can easily turn your indoor garden into a work of art with unique materials like reclaimed wood or wire and hand-written herb markers.
Not only will you be inspired to cook healthier meals using your fresh herbs, but this colorful treat for the eyes brings an element of spring to the best room in the home.
Spring Design Tip #3: Display Vibrant, Fresh Produce
Whether you are remodeling your kitchen or are simply looking for a quick kitchen revamp, you can add some spring brightness in a matter of seconds. We love when designers incorporate gorgeous fruit and vegetables as cheerful, natural kitchen accents. Even placing a bowl of freshly-picked lemons on the kitchen table instantly adds a pop of spring.
