Sunflowers are hearty plants that provide oil and seeds to people, but many people fall in love with them because of how big and bright the flowers are. Sunflower fields are beautiful and are often sought out by people to capture family pictures, or to collect a few flowers to take home. If you love sunflowers, read on to learn more about using them to decorate your home.

​Decorating with Sunflowers

Sunflowers brighten up rooms and easily fit into home decoration ideas. In the summer, sunflowers represent the brightness of the sun. When fall comes, the yellow of sunflowers goes great with the yellows, oranges, and reds that represent fall to most people. In the winter, sunflowers mixed with red cranberries and brown pinecones transform seasonal centerpieces. During the spring, sunflowers represent the vibrant colors that pop up from underneath the snow. Adding sunflower décor is a colorful way to transform a room from dull to beautiful.

Sunflower decor is most often thought of as country inspired. The kitchen is the heart of the home. Thus, country themed kitchens need sunflowers to complete their look. Sunflowers add something to your country kitchen whether you just want a splash of color, want to theme your kitchen around them, or you are a complete sunflower addict and want them everywhere.

Following are ideas for ways to add sunflowers to your design plan.

​Just a Splash Please

For people who have a country themed kitchen and are looking for a simple way to add some color, sunflowers are a great choice. If you want just a splash of color, place a few sunflowers in a metal pitcher on your kitchen counter or table. It’s a great way to liven up the room and add a pop of bright color. If you want something that lasts through every season, a silk sunflower centerpiece that you can spruce up with seasonal accessories is a great choice.

Sunflower and burlap go together well. Many people like to incorporate both in their kitchens by creating a wall hanging or a shelf decoration to add color and country charm to the room. Crafting a sunflower wreath is also a great way to add beauty to your kitchen without overpowering it.
