Add A Patterned Rug Underfoot

Kitchen floors come in many hardworking materials, like wood, stone, or tile. But whatever flooring material you have, you can elevate it (or cover up a material you don’t love) by adding a woven textile – in the form of a rug. By bringing in a patterned runner – whether graphic, striped or ornamental  – you’ll add visual interest, create a soft surface underfoot, and bring in an extra layer that creates a finished look.

Bring In Window Treatments 

For an easy way to soften up all those 90-degree angles in your kitchen – and make the whole space look elevated – consider adding a fabric or woven window treatment. A roman shade is an ideal option for a clean look that will filter light, while a woven shade in a natural material like bamboo will add an organic and textural touch.
