There are plenty of ways to decorate your kitchen do not include putting things on the walls. One of those is using the chairs or benches in your breakfast nook area. Many seating arrangements can be made more comfortable by adding cushions.

Cushions also provide an opportunity for you to add a splash of color or design to your space. You can play off the color scheme of your dishes, counter tops, wall color, or window treatments. Cushions can be ordered from catalogs or custom made to fit odd shaped or sized seating arrangements.

If you prefer not to use cushions, having the seats or backs of your chairs in different colors can add personality to the kitchen as well. As with cushions, many manufacturers will make special orders if you desire you chairs or benches to be painted.
