The least common rooms in the home to decorate for Halloween are the kitchen and bedroom. If you’re a not-so-typical decorator here are some unique Halloween kitchen decor ideas to consider.
1. A Rustic Table Centre Piece
Yah, this sounds basic, doesn’t it? Well, take a look at this spectacular idea. It features a stunning piece of natural wood and is layered with various textures. Featured are branches, candles, pumpkins, and fruit. Use found pieces or pieces on your property or if you’d rather you can purchase items. What’s nice about this centerpiece is that you can display it starting in September and keep it out until the Christmas holiday begins. To change it up, simply remove the pumpkins, keep the wood and branches, change the fruit to cranberries, add pine-cones and some decorations and now you have a Christmas holiday piece. If you prefer something simpler, check out this small low-profile centerpiece.
2. Keep the Kitchen or Dining Room Table Set with Fall Colored Dishware
Fun colorful dishware is the best! The trouble is we keep all those pretty colors behind a cabinet and rarely get to see them fully set and on display unless we’re hosting a dinner party. Why leave those gorgeous colored dishes in the cupboard? If keeping a fully decked out kitchen table isn’t doable, kick up the dining room room table with a gorgeous fall or Halloween setting. Check out this lovely table setting for some ideas. Get yourself the dishware you’ve always wanted and put it on display. Life is too short: take the holiday, drink the wine and set the damn table!
3. A Halloween or Fall Colored Area Rug or Mat for the Kitchen
The arrival of autumn means warmth, coziness and various decor textures. Even if your design style is sleek and simple, there’s a way to add a few textured pieces to bring in the feeling of fall. A Halloween or fall colored rug is a simple addition to bring color and interest into the kitchen. When the season is over, remove the rug and feature it in your Halloween themed bedroom. Ok, maybe you don’t have one of those? Then just store it away for next year.
4. Halloween Chair Covers
This is the cutest addition! You can get fun designs for the kids or keep the chair covers a little neutral by featuring generic fall-related items, like pumpkins. They’re ideal for parties, but hey, don’t wait for a party to bring out the chair covers. Add them to all the chairs around your fully decorated Halloween dining room table. A table set with funky Halloween chair covers and gorgeous autumn dishware just might draw everyone to the dining room table for dinner more frequently.
5. Fun Halloween Oven Mitts, Aprons and Placemats
One of the easiest ways to add Halloween decor into the kitchen is with interchangeable accessories. How about a skeleton apron and oven mitts? Choose Halloween or autumn themed accessories that fit with the design of your kitchen. If fun and silly isn’t your thing, go with rustic, pumpkins, and fall foliage designs. Themed placemats add depth, pattern, design and character to the kitchen. Again, choose placemats that suit your taste – they don’t have to be animated or geared for the kids.
