Heritage Owner and CEO Stephanie Plymale was featured in the Apartment Therapy article 3 Kitchen Counter Styling Ideas Professional Home Stagers Swear By. We loved their suggestions and have a few more ideas of our own on how to stage a kitchen. Whether you are a looking to sell a home, or just want to style a shot for your Instagram, these tips will help you keep you kitchen on trend.
When styling a kitchen counter space, we agree that less is more! All your non-essential appliances, dish-ware, and clutter should be tucked away in drawers and cabinets. Once space is cleared we suggest staging the following vignettes to showcase your favorite items.
Display a collection of wooden cutting boards propped against the wall. The wood will add texture and warmth by contrasting against colder surfaces like tile backsplashes and stone countertops. Vary the sizes of your cutting boards and stack them smallest to largest for the best effect!
Set the Scene
Group a classic french press, cute mugs, and patterned dish towel together to anchor a counter space. This cozy vignette will have viewers dreaming about making their own morning coffee in your kitchen.
Keep it Fresh
Fresh fruit can infuse a pop of color to a simple kitchen. Gather fresh fruit in a bowl, or cut lemons and display them floating in a carafe of water. Citrus colors will instantly brighten your space.
Open shelving is all the rage right now, and for good reason! Open shelves add a sense of airiness to a kitchen and allow more of your backsplash to be seen. We suggest styling open shelving with stacks of your favorite dish-ware, cook books, and a trailing vine plant.
