Happy Kitchen Project: Kitchen Textiles
Day 12: Happy Kitchen Project: Kitchen Textiles
This might just be my favourite part of any design work. I LOVE textiles!! They can just add so much personality into any space but a kitchen doesn’t have as many opportunities to use textiles so you have to make them count! It is nice to bring fabrics into the kitchen as it is a hard working space that has only hard surfaces and textures. Bringing in a little softness can go a long way.
I like using roman blinds in a kitchen. Unless you have a bank of floor to ceiling windows or French doors that are out of the way, curtains don’t usually work very well in kitchen. So instead of using another hard material such as wooden blinds or roller shades how about adding a roman blind? This can be an opportunity to bring in a little softness to the kitchen without compromising the function. They can be pulled up so they are well away from the working space. Try using a fun large botanical or even add some banding onto a plain linen roman. Either way it will just add a little injection to your kitchen.
Bring in some funky tea towels (psst-did you see the post we did earlier on ombre tea towels? Have a look HERE), or even some great colourful napkins.
What about the stools at your counter? Maybe that is a good place for you to add some fabric. Or cushions on your banquette. Even adding some fabric oven mitts can add a bit of softness.
Regardless of how you add fabrics into your kitchen, it is a great way to add personality and character into the hardest working room in your house.
