When you first move into your new Shaddock home you’ll probably want to jump right into making your home perfect. One of the easiest rooms to decorate and make your own is the kitchen. You can dive immediately into styling your kitchen counters with little to no effort while making a huge impact on your space.
The options for decorating your kitchen are pretty much endless and that might be daunting, but we’re here to help! We have rounded up 6 of our favorite ways to decorate this space to help you achieve your design goals.
1. Edible Décor
One of the easiest and most practical ways to decorate this space is to add in a little bit of edible décor. You can have a big bowl with cute/ready to grab after school snacks for the kids. But you can also place a variety of delicious fresh fruit in a unique tiered display. We’re partial to picking out different seasonal and local fruits!
2. Green is great!
Nothing brightens up any space like some greenery! You can use your countertops, cabinets or open shelves to display a variety of different luscious plants. Succulents work well in this space, but you can also try out fresh herbs. And if you need something low-maintenance rubber plants are also a win!
3. Functional Décor
Decorative canisters, bowls, etc are great ideas for filling up this space, but you can also utilize these pieces. We love to use ours to store flour, sugar and of course coffee! Hiding everyday items in plain sight is a win-win.

4. Display Your Favorites
One of the best pairings for countertops is a favorite cookbook and beautiful kitchenware. Have your favorite utensils that are too pretty to use or a stylish cutting board that needs its time to shine? Set up a space to make these pieces a showcase of your kitchen.
5. Drink Display
Are you an avid coffee drinker? Or maybe you love to collect wine. Either way a fun way to decorate your counters is to dedicate a space to displaying some of your favorite drinks. You can set up a ready-to-go coffee tray or even display some of your favorite wines to unwind with.
6. Company Awaits
If you love having guests and want to display your home in a guest ready way, try having place settings at your island! Anytime you have an impromptu friend pop on by you’re already ready to entertain with a casual meal and gossip.
