Benefits of a Sunflower Kitchen Theme

  • Bring in the sunshine to your home all the year round
  • Make your kitchen energized, cheerful and inviting
  • Brighten up a dark or dull kitchen
  • Add life to a drab, tired, old kitchen when you can’t afford a remodel

To add a sunflower kitchen theme without looking too busy, pick out one or two key accent pieces, and use those as inspiration to choose your other accessories and decorations in complementary colors and designs.


There are many ways to add sunflowers in your kitchen.  Here are just some suggestions:

  • Vinyl stickers for the wall or window
  • Dried sunflowers placed in cabinets
  • Decorative door handles and cabinet knobs
  • Floor mats or rugs
  • Cutting boards
  • Flower vases
  • Stickers on bottles and containers
  • Curtains
  • Wall decor
  • Kitchen accessories such as butter dishes, salt and pepper shakers, sugar and creamer sets, teapots, tureens and platters
  • Add a wall calendar featuring sunflowers
  • Cushions and throw pillows
  • Tablecloth or table runner

Sunflowers are also a great way to brighten your kitchen on a budget.  Look for low-cost ways of brightening up your kitchen with sunflowers using affordable, temporary accents like tablecloths, kitchen towels, oven mitts or add a pretty vase of cut sunflowers to your kitchen island or windowsill.

Sunflower kitchen curtains

Curtains or wall coverings that feature sunflowers are another cute way to add sunflower decor to your kitchen.  If you don't have a great view through your kitchen window, then choose a sunflower window vinyl decal.  Or go with a wall decal if you don't have a window in your kitchen at all.
