The kitchen wears many hats. It̵
Whether you love (or hate) cooking, your kitchen is also the center of your family’s daily routine. From adding a little greenery to creating a warm atmosphere with just the right lighting, you’ll love how the little upgrades below can improve your home.
So get ready to make your kitchen cozier and more inviting! Who knows? You could leave the living room completely.
Bar stools with cushions
If you find yourself standing on old wooden bar stools, paying bills, or working through piles of homework every day, it might be time for an upgrade. Cushioned bar stools have an inviting look and are sure to add comfort.
These Nathan James stools come in 12 designs, so you can choose the one that best matches your cabinets, walls or color scheme.
They have seats with 10 cm thick cushions and footrests for extra comfort and support. The light-colored stools feel minimalist and modern, but if you have little ones you may want to darken them so they don’t stain as quickly.
Windowsill spice containers
Brighten up your kitchen (and meals) with a year-round herb garden on the windowsill. You benefit from fresh herbs all year round and they also look cute.
Bringing nature indoors can have a huge impact on how you feel. Natural green is known to lower your heart rate and stress levels. Plus, they can help boost productivity, which is super beneficial if you find yourself working at the counter.
Candles with lavender and thyme scent
If you’re hoping to create a more calming environment, the long-lasting scent of calming lavender can really help. It’s a great way to add warmth to your home when the pots and pans are at rest and the kitchen needs a little aromatic look.
We love to use the Chesapeake Bay Mind & Body candles to bring a sense of balance and serenity through essential oils and natural scents. This is a great candle to light when the kids are asleep, and you’ll have a moment of rest to yourself – and yes, we know those moments are few and far between.
Cozy kitchen carpets
Kitchen rugs are often one of those love-hate accessories. Many of us tend to stick with tile or wood floors, but you’d be surprised what a rug can do for both your kitchen and your body.
From minimizing back and foot pain, to adding a splash of color to boring decor, the benefits can outweigh any hesitation. We love these vintage weathered rugs for so many reasons. They are eco-friendly, non-slip and machine washable.
However, if you don’t like cozy carpets, at least check out some anti-fatigue mats to give your legs and back a break.
While we love the idea of adding brightness to your home through herb gardens or hanging plants, we understand it’s not for everyone. Indoor plants need regular maintenance and not everyone has the time to take care of these delicate things.
Enter artificial plants, the perfect substitute for busy housewives and workers alike. Modern artificial plants look super realistic, as long as you avoid those at the dollar stores.
You can place them in any space that needs a little screwing up, without worrying about sunlight. Plus, your pets won’t eat them, so it’s a win-win! They also add a comforting feeling to your kitchen. These modern, minimalist planters are the perfect way to add some low-maintenance greenery.
Olakee cup holder
Most of us wake up and immediately make our way to the coffee pot for that morning cup of Joe. Building a cozy nook for your favorite mugs is a fun way to create a restful, inviting place for yourself and others.
Let’s face it, when you know you can always grab a cup of coffee, you know you’re really home. This rustic coffee rack set is perfect for your java display. It will also save you cupboard and counter space, and the natural wood design will really brighten up your interior. It’s just really cute too.
Aooshine small accent lamps
Warm lighting from the right lamps is an excellent way to create a cozy kitchen. Bright and radiant natural light is excellent for cooking and for work, but the right atmosphere is essential if you want to enjoy a delicious meal.
These small accent lamps are both simplistic and elegant. Because of the natural colors they fit nicely in most kitchens. Since they are small, you can also stick these in any nook or cranny to create a cozier atmosphere.
A few small changes can sometimes have the biggest impact on your decor, and they don’t have to cost an arm and a leg! These easy, rental-friendly choices will help you create a kitchen atmosphere that no one wants to leave.
