How to Decorate Your Kitchen Like Instagram

Your kitchen remodel is finally complete, and it looks great. The brand new cabinets are perfect. The countertop is shiny and new. The tile backsplash makes your heart sing every time you walk into the room, and the cooktop is just begging to be used.

…But there is a problem.

It just doesn’t look like all those Instagram photos! Never fear, we have a solution. Here’s how to curate your decor with all the little details  so your beautiful dream kitchen looks like it hopped right off your Instagram feed.

Cutting boards

Prop up two cutting boards against the back counter alongside the range with one turned up and one turned sideways. Pick cutting boards in interesting wood tones to bring in a natural element.

Tray

Set a rectangular tray in front the cutting boards. You can pick a metal tray, white glass tray, or even a wooden tray.

Design, sophistication, and style are the hallmarks of this Savora bar tray. Tray features a mirror-polished stainless steel surface and Acacia handles with a deep wood grain finish.

Wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Salt and pepper grinder

Place a salt and pepper grinder on the tray. I like electronic ones that dispense just the right amount.

Thanks to the incorporation of touch-sensitive technology for the very first time, Elis Sense boasts unrivalled ergonomics. No longer is a need for a push button, the mere contact of the user’s hand sufficient from now on! When the body of the mill and the touch-pad on the top are simultaneously touched, Elis Sense delivers exactly the right dose of salt or pepper.

Here’s a some inspiration to get you started.

I like the mix of a rectangular and round cutting board. Get a simple jar and top it with a liquor spout to pout out small portions of oil when cooking. Also, feel free to mix metals such as this copper tray and stainless salt and pepper shakers.

I’m always picking up wooden spoons when I find them out shopping for other things. I love cooking with them and they look so good in an earthy crook. And how about those silver salt and pepper shakers? Perfection.
