If you want any space in your home to look good and have the designer touch, then you need to be very mindful about curating what you do and do not include in the decor.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and as such, it is particularly important that you take the time to curate a warm and inviting space that is to your taste in that particular room.
With that in mind, below you will find some top tips for curating your kitchen right now:
Take everything out
If you want to curate the perfect kitchen, the first thing you need to do is take as much of your stuff out of the kitchen as you can so that you can assess the space and work out what you have to work with. This will also make it easier for you to create a more curated look because you can only bring into the space things that you truly love, and which truly fit in that space.

Think about how you use the space
Before you head to the kitchen appliance store or start buying crockery, think about what you do and do not use your kitchen for as this will enable you to buy the perfect pieces – the pieces you actually need. There’s no point investing in a mixer if you never bake or buy lots of side plates if you rarely use them, after all, and not doing so will mean you have more space in the place.
Choose one-of-a-kind pieces
If you want your kitchen to be totally unique to you, then your crockery and ceramics are the places to start. Whether you make your own, have a set commissioned, or buy a mish-mash or vintage pieces from the local antique store, choosing one-of-a-kind pieces for your kitchen will help you curate a style that is totally unique to yourself.
Many people pick on materials such as marble, and use it throughout their whole kitchen which is fine, but if you want to curate a look that is perfectly you, then mixing your materials can often work better. Combining marble countertops with wicker chairs and a cork floor may sound weird, but if you choose a complementary palette and you decide upon your own style, it can work very well, and add a much more impressive designer touch.
Add some art
Many people tend to think of the kitchen as being a practical space, so they do not bother with choosing great artwork to hand on the walls, but a kitchen is a place where also go to relax and enjoy life, and art can certainly enhance that. So, why not commission your own piece to go with the rest of the decor? If you’re feeling creative, you could maybe even paint something yourself to make it more you!
A perfectly curated kitchen is the most amazing space to cook eat, drink and have fun with family, so what are you waiting for?
