Draperies, faux finishes, interesting wallpaper, beautiful accessories and a decorative tile backsplash are all things that Interior Designers use to make your kitchen more beautiful.

You can use contrasting fabrics, trim details and window shades if they are needed for light control in your kitchen, but most importantly, your window treatment should add beauty and tie into the architecture of the kitchen. Window treatment designs for your kitchen can be simple or complex, but they definitely will add to your kitchen style. 

The walls of your kitchen are also important and can be enhanced with paint, a faux finish, wallpaper or tile.  If you do use a faux finish it should blend in with your cabinets and compliment them.  A faux finish or wallpaper can add a lot of interest and beauty to your kitchen

A kitchen windowsill is a great place to put live plants. They will get plenty of light and it's easy to water them.

Combining accessories with your plants will add a nice decorative touch.
