Before diving into how to decorate kitchen countertops, it’s important to understand that the size of a kitchen and the amount of countertop space you have does matter and can impact your ability to style your countertops.

Whether you have a small or large kitchen it’s still the heart of the home.  Thoughtful planning and purposeful decor choices can transform kitchen countertops into a meaningful and functional focal point without compromising on style.

The best ways to ensure your kitchen countertops do not look cluttered is to create intentional small groupings or vignettes. Arrange items in visually appealing clusters, ensuring they complement each other in style and size.

Idea #1: Less is Sometimes More

Trays or cutting boards are a great idea when it comes to creating vignettes or organizing kitchen essentials.

Idea #3: Remember the Space Above Kitchen Counters

If you have wall space above your kitchen countertops, consider hanging open shelves. This draws the eye upward and creates visual interest while keeping your countertops clear of clutter.
