Christmas kitchen

Our 5 favourite festive tips for your kitchen design in 2021

Christmas is so close now that we can almost taste the cranberry sauce! If you love the festive season as much as we do, you’re probably thinking of all the different ways you can make your home look as Christmassy as possible this year. So if you’re looking for some festive inspiration for your designer kitchens, we’ve got you covered. Here are our five top festive decoration tips for 2021!

1. Create a chalk-wall mural

Chalk walls are on-trend right now, creating a space in your kitchen that looks beautifully contemporary whilst still being practical. From writing shopping lists to creating dinner plans, you can do it all on a chalk wall. This Christmas, ditch the practical purposes and create a gorgeous festive mural. You may have to rope in the help of your most artistic family member or friend for a perfect finish. (We recommend mulled wine or chocolate coins as a festive bribe!)

2. Dress up your window to avoid clutter

Even kitchens where space is more of a premium can enjoy Christmas decorations without the clutter. All you need to do is look for spots that aren’t currently used, like your window. We love the aesthetic of some festive greenery along the top of the window, with some stylish hanging decorations or pinecones and berries as a finishing touch.

3. Use Fraser fir and white candlesticks

Fraser fir is iconically festive. Create a centrepiece on your kitchen island or kitchen table with an arrangement of this frosty greenery. Add white candlesticks for a fresh, wintery look with a more understated and chic Christmas feel.

4. Put your Christmas biscuits on display

There’s nothing like the smell of Christmas biscuits baking in the oven. The spicy scents of cinnamon and ginger fill the room with sweet, warm sugar, making for a very inviting space! After yours have baked, rather than putting them all away, arrange a selection on a wooden board for a homely, rustic aesthetic that’s undeniably festive. Biscuits in Christmassy shapes – like stars and trees – will earn you bonus festive points.

5. Create a festive scented bowl

Your kitchen is a place for cooking, and this bowl full of festive ingredients (and a few non-edible extras) will fit in seamlessly. Choose a bowl with a neutral design for a contemporary look and fill it with cinnamon sticks, baked orange slices, and roasted chestnuts. Add pinecones for an additional festive touch, and carefully arrange all of the components. Not only will this be a beautiful addition to your counter, but it’ll also fill your space with a beautifully Christmassy scent!

The kitchen is often the heart of a home, and decorating yours is a brilliant way to add some extra Christmas spirit!
