Creating a cozy, welcoming kitchen comes down to great organization, cleanliness, and decor. Since the kitchen is a high-traffic room for many homes and families, adequate storage and shelving is crucial. The organization efforts will help aid the cleanliness, which will motivate you to make a house a home with décor; it’s all one big symbiotic relationship between your effort and the tasks at hand.
Sturdy Amish furniture is great for rustic, eclectic, and even contemporary kitchens; it’s all about how you blend the works together. Consider using Amish outdoor shelving inside your kitchen to give the room a cozy feeling of nostalgia. Remember, when it comes to your kitchen, space is everything.
Aside from shelving you can use wicker, or wooden, baskets in an array of locations. You can fill some with décor and leave a few empty, but you’ll always use them. You may not realize how much clutter can build up in your kitchen, but it can, and decorative baskets help give the extra tangibles a place to go.
A woven rug near the sink is a nice touch too, coupled with potholders and dishtowels that reflect the same theme or color scheme.
A strong, durable table is a great addition as well, because you can put everyday cooking appliances on them, which saves you counter space.
Almost any outdoor furniture can work as décor in a home, if you tone it down with complementary décor. If you want to extend the homey, rustic feel into your front hall or foyer, consider using an outdoor Amish bench to welcome guests.
