Decorating the kitchen can be an expensive proposition, but if you are on a budget, look around you to see what you may have in your home, that you can use to brighten up your kitchen. Do you have some nice dishes tucked away in cabinets that you could display on a counter top? Plate racks are inexpensive and plates look good standing in strategic places on the counter. You can even look in second hand stores for some cheap plates with a design that may go with your kitchen colors or decor, and all it will cost you is a couple of dollars. How about decorating the kitchen with some woven baskets you may have around your home. These look great if you are trying to create a rustic type of atmosphere in your kitchen. Having them placed along the top of your cabinets and perhaps a couple on your counter tops holding some fruit can add that rustic charm. I have even seen baskets used as a window valance and they looked really effective.
There really is no exact information on who invented the kitchen table. Some sources say that Egyptians were those who created the first table for the kitchen. It was said that they made platforms which would let them place their food away from the floor, although, these claims are unsubstantiated. Even though nobody exactly knows who invented it, we know that they also have their own stories as this is the most common place for family members to talk together and spend some time over a good meal. At some other times, family members may have different tasks to do but when they eat at the kitchen table, they simply enjoy their meal. The kitchen table is also a good place for children to do their homework.
