Bowls range in size and can easily come in any color. They can be stored in cabinets or hung from racks or walls to show off their beauty and design. Think of a bowl not just as a useful kitchen tool but as a décor piece you can mix and match with other bowls, and display in different positions.
Dishes will generally be hidden away, but occasionally they are also used as wall decorations. If you have cabinets that are clear or glass you will be able to see dishes, which may require you buying matching sets of plates and bowls. This will give kitchen a nice ordered look, and will speed up process of keeping things organized.
If you have a permanent cutting board that you leave on your counter, then this is a major piece in your décor. Cutting boards are large and they catch people’s eyes because they stand out against counters colors. To effectively use cutting board as a piece of décor, choose a color and style that is a secondary color in room. Take a look at floor, walls, accessories, and find out what predominant color in room is. Then for your cutting board, pick something different, but complimentary. This will give room a focal point. Purchase several other cutting boards in various shades of original, and you can mix and match tones to produce whatever effect you are in mood for.
Functional kitchens require certain items in order to allow cook to work. By purchasing these items in particular colors, and matching up different designs, you can put together an overall décor that is based on needs of chef, while being beautiful for eye.
