Beautifying Your Kitchen In Apple Kitchen Decor

If you are interested in decorating your kitchen and are trying to come up with an interesting theme, look no further. A country apple kitchen decor or simply an apple kitchen decor is a great idea for any kitchen, no matter how big or how small it may be. Here is some information on decorating your kitchen in an apple kitchen decor.

Theme Ideas

The best way to do an apple kitchen decor is to not go overboard with the decor. You do not need to have apples everywhere in order to show that you are trying to have an apple kitchen theme. Instead, try to include apples in small doses and colors like red and green to show the apple theme.

You could easily do a simple and nice apple wall boarder that would make the theme pop instead of going for fully wallpapered walls covered in apple wallpaper. The subtle hints are much more appreciated than the full blown apple assault.

In addition to a wall boarder, there are many other things you can do to stick with your theme and create an apple kitchen decor. As was mentioned previously, colors can show your theme and decor just as much as a wall covered in apples. You could easily do a candy apple red for the wall color in your kitchen and put some small apple accents elsewhere. For example, you could do red walls with apple dishtowels hung over the stove handle.

Where to Find Items

You might be wondering where to find your apple kitchen decor items. The first place to look is in almost any department store. Apple kitchen decor is a very popular theme for a kitchen, so chances are you will be able to find some sort of apple decorations for your kitchen.

If you have an expanse of floor, then consider putting down a decorative rug to break it up. And remember, you want to add texture without adding clutter. If it looks messy then it probably is.

Old windows were replaced with new energy efficient windows. The house was clad in low maintenance exterior siding by James Hardie. A new dining room, keeping room, and a two story garage addition provide additional square footage. A wraparound front porch welcomes visitors and adds inviting outdoor space.

The interior spaces were designed by Tracery Interiors, with studios in Mountain Brook, Alabama and Rosemary Beach, Florida.
