12 Dec Classy Christmas kitchens and other festive flourishes
It’s time to get out the Christmas decorations and craft a kitchen Winter wonderland for your family! There’s nothing like dressing up your home with baubles, festive lights and grand wreaths to really set the stage for the holiday season. But of all the rooms in the home, keeping the kitchen both festive and functional takes practice, inspiration and an eye for design. To that end, we thought we’d share with you some of our favourite classic Christmas kitchen decorations.
This beautiful kitchen manages to pull off effortless seasonal style while keeping decorations to a minimum. Rather than cluttering worktops or blocking cupboards, the tops of the cabinets provide some excellent unused space, ripe for decorating.
The green garland is big and bright enough to fill the space, and carries the festive feeling of the Christmas tree throughout the room. The decorations on the tree itself mirror the colour scheme of the kitchen, and the classic Christmas poinsettia gives a great splash of colour to the scene.
White colour schemes can be an excellent backdrop for Christmas decorations, but if the kitchen is designed to keep fuss to a minimum, the Christmas decorations should follow the same theme.
The delicate lights around the windows and cabinets are as simple and stylish as the kitchen itself. The subtle snowflakes in the windows break up the darkness outside, holding onto that Wintery feeling, even when there is no snow outside.
Smaller kitchens can be difficult to decorate for Christmas as all the nooks and crannies are already in use. The best way around this, like in this superb design, is to swap existing decorations for Christmas-themed alternatives, which help to build festive cheer without compromising space.

Sometimes less is more, even at Christmas. You don’t have to go totally overboard and border every counter and cupboard with garlands and wreaths; a bench or worktop can be easily transformed into a Christmas showcase.
This lovely kitchen makes exquisite use of just one or two staple decorative pieces, in pride of place on their silver stand, to bring the festive spirit to the whole room. The white Christmas tree blends perfectly with the cupboards and chairs, while the wooden textures reinforce the homely quality of the kitchen.
We hope we’ve given you plenty of ideas for decorating your own classic Christmas kitchen, and that you’re looking forward to surrounding yourselves in festive cheer.
We’d like to wish all our customers and followers a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
