Holiday Decor Ideas for Your Kitchen and Denver Granite Countertops

December 19, 2018

Now that the holiday season is near, are you wondering about the different ways to revitalize your kitchen? Are you wondering how you can wow guests with ways to entertain? There is much time spent in the kitchen—it’s often considered the heart of the home. As this next season arrives, take some time to plan your holiday decor. From colors and coordinating, to serving tips, there is much you can do. It is also a great time to consider installing quality Denver granite countertops to add more value to your home. 

Colors and Coordinating

When considering different colors to use in your holiday decor, it is best to come up with a color scheme and stick with it. For some, they prefer the traditional colors of red, white, and green. For others, they like to mix in blues and silvers, or white and golds. Some even enjoy having pops of color with pink or a lime green. Not only should this be consistent in your kitchen, but throughout your home as well. Since your kitchen will need much space for preparation, consider finding decor that can be placed on the wall, or that does not take up too much space. If you have an island, consider adding a centerpiece from one of these 50 easy Christmas centerpiece ideas. 

Serving Tips

If you will be hosting any holiday parties, it is important that you have great servingware. This does not have to be a large investment, but enough to have a consistent set for your gathering. When laying out hors d’oeuvres, make sure there is the appropriate serving utensil placed in front of the serving dish. If you have any liquids, make sure to use a solid spoon as opposed to a perforated one. If there are finger foods, make sure to leave tongs available so guests do not put their hands into the dishes. This will help to avoid any food safety hazards. 

Tying in Granite 

If you have laminate counters, consider making an upgrade to granite. This premier counter choice will transform the overall look and feel of your kitchen. It will keep up with the day-to-day demands that a kitchen brings, including preparing dishes for holiday parties. It is more resistant to heat as well, and is also more resistant to bacteria when sealed. This will help to create a safe and clean environment all year long. There are many other benefits of Denver granite for your kitchen countertops to consider as you make the switch to install them.
