Sometimes, coming up with kitchen table decor ideas to spruce up your dining set can be difficult.
Especially if you just moved into a new home or apartment and haven’t established a clear style for the room yet. Make sure you take time to plan out what you want the style of your kitchen to be, but even that can be tricky.
If you’ve found your self at a loss for good kitchen table decor ideas, hang tight, here are 6 foolproof ideas to liven up your kitchen table today.
1. Find the Perfect Kitchen Table Centerpiece
The centerpiece of your table will be the main attention-grabber. The options here are quite literally limitless, especially if you take a DIY approach. Rustic, wooden items are common when it comes to kitchen table centerpieces, as it is easy to find vintage, wooden toolboxes or similarly shaped objects at flea markets or online that would work great as a centerpiece. You can make your centerpiece as simple or elaborate as you want with the details. It’s up to you and your style.

2. Use Candles to Brighten Up Your Kitchen Table
Candles are a fairly common theme when it comes to kitchen tables. While the above image represents more of a dining room table, the simple glass jugs with candles can be applied to any table. It’s a minimalistic detail but it looks great. Just like with your centerpiece, your candle decor can be simple like these, or more detailed.
These more elaborate candles pieces are examples of just how creative you can get with your candle centerpieces. The beautiful thing is, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel when incorporating candles on your table. Some decorations require a designer’s eye, or more thought behind them. Candles are probably the easiest way to up your kitchen table decor.
3. Don’t Forget About the Background
One element you shouldn’t forget about when it comes to your kitchen table is the background. While the example above is a little on the nose, in terms of being soda-themed, how you decorate the backdrop of your kitchen table will definitely factor into the overall look. Paintings or pictures are a great way to add to the feel of your kitchen table through a little extra detailing.
When choosing a backdrop, it’s important that you make it something that compliments the rest of your kitchen table decor. Something that is too bold, or different from the rest of the table will draw people’s attention away from the table you have taken so much time to decorate.
4. Flowers and Plants Can Liven Up Your Table
Flowers are obviously an iconic centerpiece and for good reason! Some fresh flowers or live plants can add a healthy, green feeling to your kitchen. And not only do plants look great in your home, but they also provide many other benefits, such as reducing carbon dioxide levels and airborne dust levels, as well as keeping the air temperature down.
While live greeneries and flowers unanimously make the kitchen table look significantly better, they also require much more work. If you aren’t at home often or don’t have a green thumb we would recommend either using fake plants or going with different decor for your kitchen table.
5. Be Festive With Your Table Decorations!
One of the most fun things to do with your kitchen table decor is to make it flow with the seasons. If you are fortunate enough live in an area with four seasons, you have plenty of options. Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter all bring unique styles that you can incorporate into your home style and there’s no better place to show off a featured piece than your kitchen table.
The beautiful thing about this approach is you can incorporate any of the previous kitchen table decor ideas. You could get seasonal candles, centerpieces, wall art, or even plants to fit with the time of year. There’s a wide range of options at your disposal in each season, so don’t be afraid to shake it up! Which leads us into our final pro tip:
6. Change Up Your Table Decorations!
Undoubtedly, the best way to find the kitchen table decore you like the most is to continually change it up! Change it with the seasons, change it year over year, change it whenever you want! If you find something new you like, take a look online for other blog posts like this to keep the good ideas rolling.
Another great way to build out your kitchen table decor is to keep an eye on what your friends and neighbors are doing and pay close attention to what you like and don’t like. There’s no better way to sample decorations than to see it in person, in an organic setting.
