As spring slowly begins to arrive here in the Northeast, I find myself yearning for a change. After the long, dreary months of winter, I’m ready to lighten, brighten, and freshen up the decor in our home. There’s something about the arrival of spring that brings with it a sense of renewal, rejuvenation, and fresh starts. And what better way to welcome in the season than by adding a touch of spring decor to the kitchen.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, where families gather to cook, eat, and spend time together. It’s a place of warmth and comfort, and adding spring decor can bring a sense of joy and cheer to this well loved space. With the arrival of longer days, warmer temperatures, and blooming flowers, now is the perfect time to add a touch of the season to your kitchen.

Spring decorating ideas in the kitchen include functional decor.

Remember, adding spring decor to your kitchen isn’t just about aesthetics. It’s about creating a space that feels inviting and welcoming; a space where memories are made and cherished together as a family.

Spring Decorating Ideas for the Kitchen

There are endless possibilities when it comes to spring decor in the kitchen from greenery to seasonal kitchen linens, and fresh fruit to dried herbs.

Decorate With Functional Decor in the Kitchen

Decorating a kitchen is not just about making it look good, it’s about making it functional as well.

It’s actually one of my favorite ways to decorate our home because it’s items we use, so why hide them away? With the right decor, you can make your kitchen not only look amazing but make it function better for you as well.

Functional decor is an excellent way to add style and substance to your kitchen while making it more practical and efficient.

Functional Kitchen Decor Ideas

Here are some spring decorating ideas in the kitchen that utilize functional decor.

Utensil Crocks: A utensil crock keeps your cooking tools organized and within easy reach. I added a pitcher to the counter and placed most of my wooden spoons inside. I can easily grab a spoon while cooking, and the wooden spoons add texture & warmth to an otherwise all white corner of the kitchen.

Cutting Boards: Cutting boards come in a variety of sizes, materials, and styles. I used wood & marble cutting boards of varying sizes to style this space. The combination of the two materials adds visual interest to the shelf.

Cookbooks: Cookbooks are such an easy option when decorating the kitchen. They add character and coziness in the kitchen. I love to display cookbooks that have special meaning to me, or church cookbooks that contain a recipe from my mother or grandmother. Don’t tuck them away somewhere, bring them out, display them, and use them!

Other Functional Kitchen Decor Ideas

  • Hanging Chalkboard or Whiteboard
  • Hanging Pot Rack
  • Dish or Glassware
  • Kitchen Linens
  • Seasonal Fruit

Functional decor can transform your kitchen from simply being a space to cook to being a functional and stylish hub of your home.

By choosing decor items that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing, you can make your kitchen more efficient, organized, and beautiful.

Add Pops of Green in the Kitchen

With greenery popping up in the outdoor spaces around us, what better way to welcome spring into our homes than with real or faux greenery?!

I don’t have a green thumb, in fact, I have a really brown thumb (some would call it black!) and so faux greens are the answer when it comes to adding greenery to our home.

Faux greenery can be placed anywhere without having to worry about light, water, or maintaining a live plant.

Check out this blog post for the best faux greenery around the web I found for spring.

You can be creative with how you display your faux plants too. I added this faux plant to this handled basket and placed on our kitchen counter. The plant added that pop of green to the kitchen, and the basket added the right amount of texture.

Spring Decorating Ideas: Seasonal Kitchen Linens

Incorporating kitchen linens into your spring decor is an easy and affordable way to transform your kitchen into a cheerful and inviting space. From dish towels to potholders, there are endless possibilities for adding color, texture, and pattern to your decor.

Kitchen Linen Ideas to Incorporate into Spring Decor

  • Pot Holders & Oven Mitts: Pot holders and oven mitts (shop the ones I have displayed, here) are not only functional but can also add some visual interest to your kitchen decor. Choose ones in a coordinating color palette or pattern to tie your spring decor together. Display them on hooks like I did or hang them from your oven handle to add texture and color to your space.
  • Dish Towels: Dish towels are a kitchen essential, but they can also be a decorative element. Choose dish towels in a springtime color palette or with floral or botanical patterns to add a touch of spring to your kitchen. Drape them over your oven handle or fold them neatly on your countertops.
  • Tablecloths: A colorful tablecloth can add spring vibes to your kitchen table. Choose a tablecloth in a bright, cheerful color like yellow, blue, or green or a floral print to add a touch of whimsy to your space. Layering a table runner on top of your tablecloth can add even more dimension to your table decor.
  • Placemats: Placemats are a simple way to add color and texture to your kitchen table. Choose ones in a playful pattern or bright color to add a touch of spring to your dining area.
  • Aprons: An apron is not only a practical kitchen accessory but also a fun way to add some personality to your kitchen decor. Choose an apron with a playful pattern or a bright color to brighten up your cooking routine and hang on a hook or display on a decorative hanger.

Keep Spring Kitchen Decor Cozy by Mixing Old & New Pieces

Spring decorating ideas should include a blend of both vintage and new pieces. Vintage pieces add a touch of nostalgia and character, while new pieces offer a modern twist.

The combination of the two create a space that is cozy & inviting!

Have fun mixing and matching vintage and new pieces to create a one of a kind spring kitchen decor.

Here I placed vintage ironstone pitchers on our open kitchen shelf. I love how they add character and charm to this space filled with mostly new pieces.

Can you believe I only paid $3 for the small vintage ironstone pitcher?! Such a steal and it’s one of my favorite pieces to decorate with in the kitchen.

Spring Decorating Ideas: Dried Herbs

Adding dried herbs to your spring kitchen decor is a simple and cost effective way to add some natural elements and color to your space. Not only do dried herbs add visual interest to your decor, but they also have a pleasant aroma that can make your kitchen feel inviting & cozy.

A great spring decorating idea is to add dried herbs to kitchen decor.

Why not display dried herbs in matching jars?

Mason jars or vintage apothecary jars are perfect for storing and displaying herbs. You can even label the jars with pretty labels or chalkboard labels for a personalized touch.

I placed bay leaves & star anise in glass canisters on our home kitchen shelf. I love the organic element and texture they add to this space. And when you open the jars…it smells like heaven!

Hanging dried lavender in a cottage kitchen is a perfect spring decorating idea.

Displaying herb bouquets in vintage or modern vases is a great spring decorating idea to add some color and texture to your kitchen.

Choose herbs that are in season and arrange them in a way that complements your decor. You can also tie a ribbon or twine around your herb bouquet like I did here for an extra touch of charm.

Herbs You can Dry & Decorate With

  • Lavender
  • Mint
  • Basil
  • Thyme
  • Sage
  • Parsley
  • Rosemary
  • Oregano
  • Cilantro

Add Baskets for Texture in a Spring Kitchen

Baskets are a stylish and practical way to achieve a warm and inviting look in the kitchen especially in spring. They add warm texture without making your decor feel heavy.

Greenery, flowers, and linens are just a few of the examples of items I like to display inside baskets for the spring season.

I am currently loving the Hearth & Hand basket I have displayed on our open kitchen shelf, you can shop it here.

Spring Decorating Ideas: Shop Your Home

Most importantly when decorating your kitchen or any room in your home for spring, remember to shop your home.

Incorporating spring decor into your kitchen is not just about creating a beautiful space, it’s about creating a space that reflects your personality, memories, and emotions. It’s about taking the time to appreciate the items that you already have and finding new ways to repurpose them.

Spring decorating ideas in the kitchen should include new & vintage pieces.

Take a moment to look around your kitchen and see what you can repurpose or rearrange before heading to the store to buy the latest trendy item. Decorate with items that tell your story and adds a personal touch to your kitchen. Surround yourself with items that bring you happiness and remind you of the people and experiences that you cherish.

You’ll create a space that is unique & special to you, and one you will cherish with your family.
