Hey friends! Even though we had snow this week in the Midwest, I am still so excited to share how I decorated our kitchen for spring!

Last week over on YouTube, I took you all along with me as I decorated my dining room space for spring.
I didn’t share that space here on the blog, simply because I’m still not sure about it. If you watched the video, you already know why. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect chairs for the table that my husband built for me recently, and I haven’t found them yet.
Creating a home that you love takes time! And although I’m tempted to just buy something new and get the space finished, my frugal self also continues to hunt Facebook marketplace and nearby thrift stores just in case I stumble upon the perfect set.
ANYway – let’s talk about the kitchen!
It was snowing so hard while recording this YouTube video, ha! I realize that spring isn’t quite here for some of us. But I also know that for many of you, the weather is beautiful and you’re ready to shift into spring in your homes.
I’m right there with you! Here in Michigan, I usually wait until the leaves are falling before I pull out any pumpkins or fall decor. But when it comes to springtime, I break all the rules!
I shared some English cottage inspired spring decorating ideas on the blog recently, if you’d like to check them out! I used a lot of those ideas in this post I’m sharing here today.
Decorating a Small Kitchen for Spring
Clean and Declutter
Later that same month, I decided to organize all of my kitchen cabinets and we got rid of so much stuff. Extra coffee mugs, Tupperware, and baking dishes that I rarely used (if ever).
I think it’s always good to start with a clean slate before switching your decor over to a new season!
Keep It Simple
I want to be careful here, because I don’t feel as though my kitchen is small by any means. I love our kitchen and I’m SO thankful for it!
But because of it’s galley style layout, it can be tricky to add spring decor without our kitchen feeling cluttered and overdone.
At this point in my life, I like to keep things on the counter that I use on a daily basis. Glass storage containers with flour and oats, salt and sugar.
Then, I work around those items that are already on the counter and see where I can add spring touches.
A simple white vase with fresh flowers was really all I needed to instantly make the space feel like spring.
Fresh fruit is another great way to brighten up your space. It’s practical, and ready for the taking whenever my boys get hungry and want a snack!
In an effort to keep my counters as clear as possible, I often look upwards when considering seasonal decor in the kitchen.
Examine your walls and think about areas where you can add vintage art, peg racks or even a chalkboard.
I love the simple DIY chalkboard that we made with our old storm door and some chalk paint. My eight year old made a countdown for our family vacation, but I’ve used it to write down verses, summer bucket lists, and grocery needs!
Is there space above your cabinets or fridge? How could you utilize those areas to make your home feel like spring?
Switch Out Linens and Rugs
I love bringing in fresh towels, napkins and washcloths whenever I switch up seasonal decor.
You can also switch out kitchen rugs! I like the rug I have now, but I’ve been on the lookout of another one that’s maybe a bit more simple for spring and summer.
Decorating your kitchen for spring really doesn’t have to be overwhelming or fussy. Simple changes are sometimes the very best.
Do you have a galley style kitchen like I do? What are some ways that you like to decorate your kitchen for spring? I’d love to know in the comments below!
