Spring Kitchen Decorating Ideas

Simple spring kitchen decorating ideas that you can add to a kitchen that are both pretty and budget friendly.

Yesterday, I shared how I decorated my living room mantel for spring and how I shopped my house to find decorative items to use.

Today I am sharing how I added a few old and new decorative items to my kitchen to get it ready for spring. My kitchen is white and in past years I added spring color by making shelf backdrops for open shelves. This year I added spring colors in a different way.

You know I like to decorate with white so I can accent it with pops of color.  For spring this is easy to do since spring is blooming with so many vibrant and happy colors. I chose to use my favorite colors… blue, pink, and green in the kitchen.

If you are new here, I made over my 1970’s era kitchen with lots of patience and paint. I even painted the laminate counters to look like Carrara Marble.

You can read how I went about doing that, in this post—-> How to Paint Kitchen Counters to Look Like Carrara Marble.

My kitchen isn’t huge so I have to make every inch count. When I painted the kitchen cabinets over a year ago now, I removed the doors from these shelves to create open shelving.

The doors were hard to open since they are above the elbow section of the counter area where the peninsula starts which makes the cabinets hard to reach.

I have gathered the collection of white plates, bowls, and pitchers over the last 20 years. The pieces are from Walmart, HomeGoods, TJMaxx and the Dollar Tree.

To accent my white collection I bought a few new decorative accessories to place in the hard to reach area of the counter. Since I can’t use it as a food prep work space, I use it to place pretty things.

What items are good to use to decorate a kitchen counter?

Like the blue cabbage bowls that I have had for a very long time.

What should I use to decorate my kitchen counters. A bubble glass candle holder and match striker.

The wood and bubble glass hurricane is a new purchase. When I saw it on the shelf at Target, I knew it would look perfect on the kitchen counter. The matchstick holder and striker was given to me for Christmas.

I replaced the seagrass rug I had in front of the sink with a blue and white striped accent rug.  I like the fresh new look and the fact that when this rug gets dirty I can toss in the washer. I couldn’t do that with the seagrass rug.

Back in 2013 I made over the IKEA step stool with Houndstooth duct tape.  When I posted about it, many commented that the duct tape would get sticky after a while.

I am happy to report it has not.  How to Make a Houndstooth Step Stool.

On the cooktop side of the kitchen, there is very little counter space, so I don’t add any decorations, just items I need to prepare food.

I added just enough to refresh the space and now I can’t wait for spring to officially arrive.

  10. I was wondering how your cupboard paint is holding up and what paint you used? I’m in the process of painting mine, I have all the base cabinets and the drawers done. I used Benjimin Moore Advance and I’m finding that it is chipping off, even if I bump a plastic storage container on the edge. I’m not at my full month of curing time yet, probably about 3 weeks, but I’m very discouraged and not able to find the motivation to finish the doors. It’s a LOT of work and time to put into something that is not going to hold up well.

    1. Hi Corry –

      I used Sherwin Williams ProClassic Waterbased Acrylic Alkyd in a semi-gloss finish. It is their medium price ranged paint. I used a water based primer first, and then paint. Ben Moore Advance gets good reviews. Did you sand the cabinets? Did you use a stand alone primer? If so what brand?

      If it is chipping right from the start, it is either not cured or the paint was applied too heavy and the under side is not dry, so when something hits it, it chips off. I would let it dry for another week and see what happens. Let me know about the sanding and priming.

      1. Thank you for your reply. Yes I did sand the cupboards and also did a light sanding in between coats. I used Zinsser BIN primer. I don’t believe I applied the paint too heavy. Hoping more time will harden things up. So I assume your paint is holding up well, or should I expect some little dings?

        1. Hi Corry – My painted cabinets are holding up very well. No dings or chips except one that sadly had nothing to do with the paint not adhering, but from me dropping a knife when I was unloading the dishwasher. It hit a cabinet door and took a small chunk of wood out. :-( I have patched it up.

          The paint you applied once cured should not chip off. It may wear off over time around frequently used cabinet knobs (will take years) but not come off or ding easy when you touch or wipe over the surface. I have never used Ben Moore Advance paint. It may simply be that it takes a little longer to cure. I would ask at the Ben Moore paint store where you bought the paint to see if they have any tips about the curing time of the paint. They may be able to reassure you that all is good. Let me know in a few weeks if you notice that paint has hardened.

  11. Living in south Florida for the past 22 years, I must admit sometimes I forget that it is still winter for the rest of you. And while I do decorate for fall, winter, and Christmas, I never really did much for spring- I suppose because we live outside so much I see color around me everywhere. But as a former northerner I still miss that fresh hope that spring brings! (Not to mention that fresh air/oh how I long to put out my bedding to freshen it outdoors like my Mom used to do! sigh…) I am not a “blue” person when I decorate, but I am SO inspired by how fresh your kitcehn updates look! I think my otherwise neutral home needs some pops of color, so I feel a HomeGoods visit and Target run is in order! Happy Spring and thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Oh my goodness! Your beautiful spring touches pop so perfectly against all that white! WOW! Gorgeous photography of you beautiful kitchen, Diane!
