 A beautiful window treatment, faux finishes on your walls or cabinets, interesting and fun accessories and an exciting backsplash are all ways to update and decorate your kitchen.

The kitchen window treatment should tie into the architecture of the kitchen and not take away from your view outside.  It should also add beauty to the inside of your kitchen. You can use shades if they are needed for light control, but contrasting fabrics and trim details, as well as an interesting design are all important for your kitchen window treatment.


A lot of interest and beauty can be added to your kitchen by using a faux finish on the walls.  The finish should blend in with your cabinets and compliment them.   

Using live plants on a kitchen windowsill adds a bit of nature and is a pretty place to put a plant.  It is a good idea because the live plant will get plenty of light and will be easy to water because it is near the kitchen sink.

Combining accessories with your plants will add a nice decorative touch. In this pretty kitchen a large urn looks great behind a plant.

We chose natural stone and mosaic glass tile for this new home.

A kitchen backsplash should compliment your counter top but be interesting and add some artistic detail to your kitchen. The area behind your range is usually a good place to add some dramatic detail.
