How to Bring the Holiday Spirit Into Your Kitchen

It’s November, and everyone’s feeling the end-of-year time crunch! Like any sane homeowner, the last thing you want to do is add a total kitchen renovation to your holiday to-do list. But if you feel your kitchen needs a facelift and you still have a weekend or two to spare, no worries! You can still give the heart of your home a festive touch with these quick holiday kitchen makeover ideas.

Tips for a Festive Kitchen

  • Food. What’s more fitting in a kitchen than some edible décor? Give your family and guests a treat for the stomach as well as for the eyes with some cleverly arranged seasonal fruit and holiday goodies.

  • The “good” china. You know those fancy dinner sets you’ve got hidden away in case the Queen of England pays you a visit? Put them to good use and make your holidays extra special.

  • Lighting. This season is all about warmth and coziness. Set the mood with candles, dimmer lights or even some holiday lanterns. If you’re lucky enough to have a kitchen fireplace, now’s the time to make it earn its keep.

  • Scents. Most people associate certain scents with this time of year: cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, peppermint, pine… Whatever your favorite, remember that a kitchen is still a space for food prep. Make your room scent decisions accordingly. Great ways to introduce holiday scents into a kitchen include simmer pots, potpourri, and hand and dish soaps.

  • Natural accents. A simple and low-cost way to make the season felt in the kitchen is to bring the outdoors in with wreaths, garlands and other natural arrangements.

  • Holiday ornaments. If you’re not opposed to a bit of kitsch, go ahead and break out the ornaments! Themed rugs, kitchen towels, napkins and table runners work too.
