Sometimes you walk into someones kitchen and there is just something about how nice it looks. Something feels different than what youre used to seeing. Well that something might be the above-cabinet dcor. Its something that few kitchens have mastered, because it takes some design and thinking to do it right.

Here are some ideas to help you with this method to make your kitchen have that extra flair people will love when they visit.

Above Cabinet Lighting

Just like under-cabinet lighting, above-cabinet lighting can make your kitchen look very warm, relaxing and inviting. Theres something about warm lighting that makes a place feel like you want to stay there.

Plants are a great addition to the top of your cabinets. They give a feel of life to your kitchen (even though you may use fake plants for ease of care!).

You can store all kinds of stuff creatively over your cabinets. If you need space, find a way to make it look nice and organized. Store supplies, dishes, wine, food, or whatever looks good to you.

If you have fine china or fixtures you want to display to the world instead of sticking them out of sight, make a creative display above your cabinets.

Creative STUFF!

Theres no limit to what kind of things go well on top of cabinets. Be creative and make it personal. Some people love roosters, so put roosters up there! Maybe you like to collect things. Its a great place to display your hobbies. Look around for things that would work well and try it out.
