HOW TO DECORATE A DARK KITCHEN FOR THE HOLIDAYS?
During the winter holidays, our homes are turning into beautifully decorated places filled with joy and warmth. If you have a dark kitchen, you might be wondering how best to decorate it in the holiday spirit. Don’t worry – in this blog, we’ll go through a couple of ideas that can help you create a lovely holiday atmosphere in your home!
Colors that are a great match for a dark kitchen ❤️✅
Gold – for that luxurious holiday sparkle
This color is a perfect choice for adding that extra elegance to your dark kitchen. You can use gold ornaments, decorative ribbons, and other decorations in this palette for that true holiday sparkle. This color will create a sophisticated look that goes ideally with the basic dark color.
Red – the color of new energy
Red is the traditional Christmas color, and it goes great with the dark shades. You can use red ornaments, red candles, or even red napkins, tablecloths or pillows in order to bring that joy and warmth into your kitchen. This color combination creates a dramatic contrast anyone is bound to notice.
Green – the color of fresh beginnings
Here’s another classic Christmas choice. Green and black can look quite elegant together. Think about using green branches or ornaments, and hanging them onto the kitchen cabinet or chandeliers. Besides, green plants, such as Christmas star or pine, can add some freshness to the space.
White – the color of joy and open home
White is a neutral color that goes great with dark shades. You can use white ornaments for that minimalistic design and holiday decor. Besides, this color will add some light to your dark kitchen, as it can sometimes feel gloomy.
The colors of the nature – creating a feeling of peace, comfort and warmth
If you’d like a natural look that will still bring something new to your dark kitchen, think about using ornaments inspired by nature. This means wood-inspired decorations, and an earth color palette. These colors will add warmth and coziness to your space.
Which colors should you avoid? ❌
You should probably avoid blue and silver, because they will add “coldness” to the existing dark shades. Also, we wouldn’t recommend dark ornaments, because they will blend into the background.
What else should you pay attention to?
Candles and lighting
Candles are a perfect way to create a warm atmosphere in a dark kitchen during the holidays. Place the candles on the table or the kitchen bar to create a romantic setting. Also think about changing the light bulbs to warm-light ones, for even more pleasant lighting.
Decorate the kitchen island
If you have a kitchen island, this is a perfect place to add some extra decorations. Put some pine branches, or even a small Christmas tree onto the island. Your kitchen will immediately feel like Christmas!
Kitchen table decorations
If you have a table in the kitchen, this could also be an ideal spot to create a lovely holiday corner where you can enjoy with those you love the most. Use red and green napkins, tablecloths and ribbons – this will create a visually pleasant contrast with the black background. You can also add silver or gold-colored kitchenware, for that extra sparkle.
New Year’s window decorations
If you have them, don’t forget about the windows in your dark kitchen. Add holiday ornaments such as stars, angels, or little Christmas trees, pine cones, candles… This will make your kitchen even more bright and cheerful, for that perfect holiday atmosphere.
And don’t forget… 🍲🍰😉
Your holiday decorations will be even more beautiful when you’re surrounded with those closest to your heart, sharing a warm holiday meal!
Decorating a dark kitchen for the holidays can be a fun and creative experience. By adding different colors, candles, lighting, you can create a warm holiday atmosphere in your home. But don’t forget to add a personal touch to your holiday décor – this will make your guests enjoy their visits even more!
Have fun while accessorizing your dark kitchen, and welcome New year in a home that reflects your personal aesthetics. Good luck with decorating, and happy holidays!
